Student Involvement

Student involvement is an integral part of the Trinity College experience. The Office of Student Activities, Involvement & Leadership (S.A.I.L.) has oversight of more than 140 student-run organizations on campus; coordinates large-scale campus events such as First Year Orientation, the semiannual Activities & Involvement Fairs and Senior Events; coordinates the creation of the Ivy Yearbook; and provides a variety of leadership development programs and experiences for students. 

In addition, the office provides oversight and coordination for two facilities that serve the Trinity community—Mather Hall and Vernon Social.
