The Trinity community comes together on social media to provide support and encouragement while quarantined

by Sydney Rhodes '23

Despite the distance and the trials presented by COVID-19 as people all across the globe try to adjust to a new way of life, the Trinity community is determined to stay connected. Parents, students, teachers, organizations, and even pets are coming together on social media to make the transition to online learning a little brighter. We have compiled some of our favorite posts to share with you in an effort to highlight the people who have made us feel a little less isolated.
