Our Summer Experiences: Bantams Benefit from Internships Across the Country
Trinity students are making the most of the summer with a wide variety of internships that add new depth to their academic pursuits. Here, some Bantams talk about what they are doing this summer and what the experiences mean for their future paths at Trinity and beyond.
Vernon Social will transform into the Cornelia Parsons ’80 Center, the new home of the Career and Life Design Center, formerly the Center for Student Success and Career Development, and is anticipated to become a hub of student-centered activity.
More than 350 Trinity alumni volunteered this spring to be matched with a graduating senior through 2021 Connect, a four-week industry-based mentorship program offered by Trinity’s Center for Student Success and Career Development. “My mentorship gave me perspective as to what ‘life beyond the Long Walk’ would look like and how much value a Trinity degree holds,” said Jeffrey Sagun ’21.
Trinity’s Student Success team is adept at connecting students with resources to help navigate challenges they encounter during college. With the team’s leadership, Trinity has achieved a first-year student retention rate of 90 percent, worthy of celebration in any year and even more so in the time of COVID-19.
