March-April 2015




HIGHLIGHTS: It was a historic evening on Saturday, March 28, as the Trinity College men's ice hockey team defeated Wisconsin Stevens-Point, 5-2, in the 2015 NCAA National Championship inside Ridder Arena. "This group of young men is one of the best I've ever had the privilege of being around," Trinity College head coach Matt Greason said. " You spend any time around them, and you'll see what truly unbelievable people they are. Each guy gave their heart and soul to this program, and I'm so proud of them." With the win, the Bantams finished the season on a four-game winning streak with a 25-3-1 record. Read the full story here, which includes links to coverage from a variety of news media.

Students Make a Habit of Helping Others by Building Homes Locally and in Florida
Every year for more than a decade, Trinity students who volunteer for Hartford Habitat for Humanity have made it a habit to wake up extra early on a Saturday every month to participate in a home-building or remodeling project in Hartford. Recently, many of these students took both their skills and commitment to service on the road to help out elsewhere. In March, a group of 28 Trinity students traveled to Broward County, Florida, for an “alternative” spring break, participating in the Habitat Collegiate Challenge. Read more.
