The International House: Supporting Students Far from Home
Coming to Trinity as a first-year student from Afghanistan, Hanifa Darwish ’22 found support at the college’s International House, which promotes the appreciation of diversity on campus. “The iHouse helps international students adapt to life at Trinity and introduces all students to international cultures through events, discussions, and trips,” she says.
Trinity College has renamed the recently renovated building previously known as Vernon Social in honor of Cornelia “Cornie” Parsons Thornburgh ’80, H’22, longtime volunteer and stalwart supporter of the college.
Within six months of graduating from Trinity, 97 percent of alumni from the Class of 2021 said they had achieved their goals of employment, graduate studies, volunteer service, and other fulfilling pursuits. Here, six alumni check in about where they are now and how Trinity helped them get there.
The spring 2022 semester brings some big changes to Trinity’s Career and Life Design Center, which is now open in the Cornelia Center (formerly known as Vernon Social). As it continues its mission to empower students and graduates to be active agents in designing their careers, the center is a new hub for student-centered activity on campus.
