Trinity College

Atop a hill on Summit Street in the capital city of Hartford, Trinity College is where the liberal arts meet the real world. Since it opened its doors in 1823, Trinity has remained steadfastly committed to providing a liberal arts education that is both relevant and timeless. We aim to prepare students to be bold, independent thinkers who lead transformative lives. Our distinctive curricular offerings -- including an interdisciplinary program in neuroscience, a professionally accredited engineering major, a first-of-its-kind human rights program, and a newly established Center for Caribbean Studies -- engage students in learning inside and outside the classroom, connecting them with communities and cultures in the Hartford region and worldwide. Students take advantage of extensive opportunities for experiential learning, community service, and internships, and about 60 percent of Trinity students study away at some point during their college careers, many of them at one of our nine semester or year-long study away programs in cities around the world: Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, New York, Paris, Port of Spain (Trinidad), Rome, Shanghai, and Vienna. At home in Hartford, our 100-acre campus is a beautiful green oasis in the city, complemented by a new presence at Constitution Plaza downtown, where our Liberal Arts Action Lab will open during the 2017-18 academic year. With 41 academic majors, 29 Division III varsity teams, and more than 100 student clubs and organizations, ours is a campus community that values diversity, integrity, and intellectual vitality, encourages innovation, builds resilience, promotes balance, and instills the joy of lifelong learning. To recruit the most talented and engaged student body from all over the world, Trinity no longer requires standardized test scores and waives application fees for first-generation college students. We take a values-driven approach to admissions, considering qualities -- grit, creativity, curiosity, and more -- that will help students thrive in college and beyond.
