Campus Visit

​There are a few things you won’t learn about Trinity from a Web site or glossy brochure. You won’t feel the aura of tradition and scholarship of the Long Walk, America’s oldest example of Collegiate Gothic architecture. You won’t experience the rush of anticipation as the curtain opens on the latest stage production at the Goodwin Theater. You won’t hear the roar of fans cheering the Bantams at a soccer match or the low hum of serious studying at the Raether Library.

If you never visit Trinity, you won’t understand its unmistakable sense of place. Few other American colleges can match our beautiful, historic campus in the heart of a resurgent capital city. Come see Trinity for yourself. We’re excited to meet you.
