The Long Walk Societies

The Long Walk Societies (LWS) were formed in 1992 as a way to show the College’s appreciation for leadership gifts to Trinity College.  The LWS bring together generations of donors and volunteers--veteran leaders and emerging leaders--to support virtually every aspect of academic and student life.
