Student Involvement

Student involvement is an integral part of the Trinity College experience. The Office of Student Activities, Involvement & Leadership (SAIL) has oversight of all of the student organizations on campus, coordinates student event programming, plans large-scale campus events, and provides a variety of leadership development programs. We have more than 100 student-run organizations representing the full spectrum of student life at the College. Student organizations offer tremendous opportunities to build leadership skills​, make new friends, get out into the community, and contribute to the rich diversity of campus life. 

Some excellent examples are the iHouse, an organization of international and domestic students with its own cultural house on Vernon St.; Relay for Life, which raises over $50,000 annually for the American Cancer Society; and the Outing Club, which organizes camping, climbing, skiing, and SCUBA diving trips to local and regional spots. 

What will be your “thing” at Trinity? You can dive into a favorite niche or try something completely different. It all starts at the Orientation Activities Fair, where almost all of our student organizations are present to show you what they do. We encourage students to chat with as many groups as they want but only choose a handful to join - you don't want to overwhelm yourself before the semester begins! And, if you don't see an organization that represents your interests, contact the SAIL office to discuss the option of starting a new organization.
