The Impact of Your Support
Trinity is a special place ― and not only from September through May. Just ask Jess ’17, a biomedical engineering major who will keep learning and growing all summer long as part of the College’s Summer Research program.
“I’ve always enjoyed science and math," says Jess. “I am majoring in biomedical engineering because it is exciting to explore and determine solutions to long-term problems. I want to help people in the future."
She won’t have to wait long. Starting in July, Jess will be teaching rising juniors at Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy about the joys of science ― from DNA extraction to dissection. For Jess, the summer will focus on expanding what she has learned in the classroom and applying it beyond Trinity’s campus.
“It's not only about teaching but also about watching students develop a passion and interest in the sciences as I did,” says Jess. “Some students start out on day one having no idea what they want to do with their lives, and by the end of the program, they are determined to go to college and pursue interests they’ve newly discovered.”
When asked what she finds special about Trinity, Jess was enthusiastic. “Trinity is a campus that will get you where you want to go. If you want to start something, you have everything and everyone behind you. The Trinity network is amazing.”
