The Student Experience

Many choose to explore the varied cultural, historical, and community events that Washington, D.C., offers. There is also a wide range of on-campus activities that take place every day that involve all members of the Trinity Community, including athletic events, service opportunities, student organizations, and Trinity Traditions that honor students as they progress toward graduation.
