Student Leadership and Creativity

At Trinity, you'll have many opportunities to make things happen for yourself and your community, whether it's creating a college-wide film festival or launching a mock trial team for national competition.  The Trinity environment fosters creative and critical thinking and challenges students to take leadership roles.  The following videos are examples of campus initiatives that were conceptualized and executed entirely by Trinity students.

Trinity Film Festival:
Launched in 2012 by an ambitious group of students from the Trinity Film Society, The Trinity Film Festival features short films submitted by students from around the country, screened at the iconic Cinestudio theater on Trinity’s campus, and judged by a prestigious professional film panel.

Trinity International Hip-Hop Festival:
The Trinity International Hip-Hop Festival started with small shows in a coffee house on campus, and has since grown to the largest hip-hop festival of its kind in the U.S., featuring artists from around the globe.  Its purpose is to educate, bringing diverse viewpoints all under one roof in Hartford.


​Trinity Mock Trials Team:
Initiated to give opportunities for professional experience, the Trinity Mock Trials Team appeals to students interested in public policy and law, debate, and/or theater.  Created by students in 2008, Trinity needed just three years to earn a bid to the National Championship tournament. 

​Step at Trinity:
A formal step team at Trinity was started in 2008 by students, and has become a staple on campus thanks to exciting and unique routines that appeal to both the eye and the ear. Student leadership of the group has remained strong since the team’s creation, as step at Trinity continues to grow and thrive.
