Here’s the case for a truly unmissable alumni weekend

Trinity’s Alumni Weekend, held during the University’s 150th year, promises to be a celebration like no other. 

You might not need a reason to visit campus, Tigers, but we’ve got nine good ones for you anyway.

1. Hear the bell tower ring again.

Has there ever been any sound sweeter than the Murchison Tower Bell? Maybe not, unless you’re running late between classes. So why not come back and savor the sound while you’ve got all the time in the world? We’re even letting alumni climb the tower!

2. Check out what’s shiny and new.

We all love to tell today’s kids how much better they have it. Come visit Trinity’s state-of-the-art machine shop, glistening science labs, and our gorgeous, all-Steinway set of pianos, and see for yourself.

3. Cheer on the Tigers on the football field, soccer pitch, and beyond.

We have a new football playing surface and a revamped Bell center. What hasn’t changed? The winning!

4. Oakmont Block party!

You don’t have to wait for Christmas on Oakmont to stroll down the sidewalk and enjoy free food. Register online, and join your class decade for a personalized shindig!

5. Hit up your old hangout spots.

Whether it’s that corner study window in the Library, the infamous Bombay Bicycle Club, or an off-campus haunt on the St. Mary’s strip, every Tiger has a favorite den.

6. Protest that last exam grade you’re still unhappy with.

OK, not really. But at our Fiesta with the Faculty event, you can finally touch base with that professor you’ve been meaning to add on LinkedIn anyway.

7. Stroll by your old dorm.

Reminisce about your first home away from home, and ponder what might have been different about your life had you claimed the opposite side of your dorm room.

8. See your favorite Trinicat.

Or, if it's been adopted, meet a new one.

9. Reconnect with old friends.

With your support, Trinity’s campus will continue to change and grow. But the real beauty of Trinity will always be its people.
