The Bantam Network is at the heart of the Trinity student experience!

Designed by students for students, the Bantam Network helps students build their on-campus network of care. We do so by using a comprehensive Nest system. Through the Nests, students join a unique support system of Nest Advisors and Community Mentors encompassing staff, faculty, and peersStudents also engage in opportunities that foster their academic achievement and personal development, while building community and creating traditions that last a lifetime. 

We guide students through their Trinity experience, from matriculation to graduation!


The Bantam Network is committed to the holistic development of our students. We help students build their network of care within the Trinity community by connecting them to the resources, programs, and services needed to successfully navigate their Trinity experience.


The Bantam Network seeks to contribute to Trinity’s preparation of the next generation of bold, independent thinkers who will create positive change within their communities. By engaging students in transformational opportunities, we aim to help them reflect on their learning and passions.


  1. Nurture student learning within the context of holistic student development

  3. Connect students to quality programs, events, resources, and services
