Choose Global Start

Begin Trinity with an adventure abroad in Costa Rica​ 

Explore another culture. 

Challenge yourself academically.
Gain independence and perspective.

​Apply for Global Start and spend your fall semester living and learning in the vibrant capital city of San José.  Engage with fellow Trinity students, with international students, with your Trinity  professor, with Costa Rican faculty and community organizations. Explore global issues from development and sustainability to human rights  and Latin American politics.  

Global Start is  a unique way  for first-year students to begin the college experience.  Join Trinity's class of 2023  with a study away experience in your very first semester.   The academic and cultural experiences you'll have in Costa Rica will lead naturally into many majors and initiatives once you return to Trinity in Hartford.

Be bold.
Be different.
Be relevant.
