Summer on Campus and in Hartford

Summer at Trinity evokes films at Cinestudio and free outdoor music concerts—from carillon music and picnics on the lawn on campus to Monday night jazz at Bushnell park starting in July.  Take advantage of the summer to explore Hartford, including its rich museums and cultural sites, summer riverfront festivals, and ethnic restaurants. In addition to students taking courses and faculty conducting research, there are also students involved in summer research programs and working on campus, while over 200 children from Hartford participate in our Dream Camp program on campus.
