What is New Student Orientation?

The program is designed to take care of details like placement exams, advising, and registration, but is also geared around acquainting you with campus life, assisting you with the transition to the academic rigor of Trinity, and of course, building community among your fellow classmates. Come prepared to participate in key Trinity traditions from the start. Families are also welcomed into the Trinity community during the first day of New Student Orientation, and several local hotels offer Trinity rates for their stay. We believe that you should actively seek opportunities to learn about yourself, develop, and engage in our vibrant campus life.
