Trinity is a place where ideas, passions, and questions can be fully explored. With an overwhelming number of campus clubs and student organizations, you’ll find something for every interest and passion. There’s so much to do, countless opportunities to connect, nourish talents, and serve others. A current student put it best: “Trinity is for students who were over-committed in high school.”

Athletics

Trinity Athletics provide a finely-tuned mix of intercollegiate, club, intramural, and rec sports so that all students may realize their full potential as students and athletes. We compete in a wide array of DIII sports at a high level, and student participation at all levels is part of the Trinity culture. Our small enrollment means a relatively large percentage of the student body compete at the intercollegiate level.

Alumni from Trinity

After taking classes in political science and Middle East history, I went from wanting to be an academic who studied trends to someone who wanted to influence the policies that shape international relations.
