2018 Parents Senior Tribute Gift

​The 2018 Parents Senior Tribute Gift Committee is excited to begin a new tradition with the Class of 2018, a Senior Tribute Gift Campaign that gives parents and families a way to make a lasting and meaningful difference at the college in honor of their graduating students.

This year we  have chosen to dedicate our 2018 Parents Senior Tribute Gift to a project supporting ​enhanced classroom technology and collaborative learning spaces. The generosity of parents and families can help provide resources for future Bantams to prepare for success inside and outside the classroom in a dynamically changing world. A gift in support of classroom enhancements can do much to contribute directly to the educational experience of students who follow in the footsteps of our graduating seniors.


To add to the excitement, this year we are introducing a meaningful new way to honor all of our seniors and your support of the college: every graduate will have their name engraved on a brick installed on the Lower Long Walk. The inscribed bricks will unite the class in celebration, honoring one last time the mark these students have made on Trinity before they go out and make their mark on the world.

Parents and families can make a gift to the Classroom Enhancements Project, or to another purpose on campus meaningful to their student’s experience. All gifts of any size make a difference and will count toward the 2018 Parents Senior Tribute Gift Campaign. We hope that every senior family will participate in this new tradition at Trinity.  Thank you!

“It is an honor and privilege for us to chair the 2018 Parents Senior Tribute Gift Campaign. Our daughter Greer is having such a positive experience at Trinity. In fact, all of our children have truly enjoyed their Trinity journey. It is hard to believe that this will be our last Commencement. We are grateful to give back through this important initiative to an institution that has meant so much to our family.”
