Senior Week and Yearbook

Senior Week, May 11-15, 2015
Congratulations! If you are reading this page then you/your loved one is a soon-to-be graduate from Trinity College. This is an exciting time for graduating students and so we hope you will consider celebrating this accomplishment with your fellow classmates during Senior Week 2015! Senior Week is the period of time between the end of finals and Commencement that celebrates the graduation of the senior class. The cost includes all food, beverages, transportation, gifts and events exclusively for seniors, planned by the Senior Class Committee and the Office of Student Activities, Involvement & Leadership (S.A.I.L.).

The cost of Senior Week 2015 is $275.00 and has already been charged to every eligible graduating senior's student account for payment. Those seniors who have decided to opt out of the charge have until Friday, April 3, 2015 to change their decision. Registration for Senior Week will close at that time. Any questions in regards to payments may be directed to Student Accounts, student-accounts@trincoll.edu.

For questions involving the plans of the Senior Class Committee this year, please contact your president, Ambar Paulino at ambar.paulino@trincoll.edu. Students will be e-mailed in late January/early February with more specific details including the updated schedule. If you will be under 21 during Senior Week, you are still welcome to participate in all activates but will be given a different bracelet to identify you as under 21 during events with alcohol. The details of this year's schedule are still being finalized but please see the tentative schedule below.
