Homecoming Weekend


The entire Trinity College community is invited to celebrate Homecoming 2018 October 12–14! The exciting weekend ’neath the elms will include eight athletic contests over three days, social gatherings, Chapel events, lectures, a community-wide tailgate, and more.

Having the festivities earlier in the year than usual will allow alumni to come together during New England’s prime fall season to cheer on student-athletes playing field hockey, football, soccer, and volleyball.  

“We are looking forward to this year’s October Homecoming weekend,” said Drew Galbraith, Trinity’s director of athletics. “We will be able to showcase all of our fall teams in home NESCAC action and provide alumni, families and supporters a look at all of the recently completed outdoor fields with Bantams at play.”

Several affinity groups, student organizations, and alumni classes are actively planning special gatherings during the weekend. Steve Donovan, director of alumni relations, believes early fall is the perfect time of year for alumni to come back home to our beautiful campus. “Alumni and their families will have a choice of a number of activities, and they also will be able to take time to reminisce with old friends as well as interact with today’s students.”

Bantams coming in from out of town are encouraged to book their hotel rooms now as it will be a busy weekend in the Hartford area with the 25th annual Eversource Hartford Marathon on Saturday, October 13.
