Join Trinity administrators, faculty, and staff, as well as your fellow graduates, their families, and guests for a special afternoon of celebration right here on campus.

As in the past, the College will sponsor a Post-Commencement Celebration following the ceremony. The College tent will offer entertainment, food and beverage, and other festivities. Graduates, their families, and guests are encouraged to attend and bid farewell to faculty and staff, friends, and classmates. In addition to the College-sponsored celebration, some graduates and their families choose to rent a tent and sponsor their own Individual Post-Commencement Celebration.

Graduates will not be permitted to rent tents and/or to sponsor individual Post-Commencement Celebrations on Trinity premises without a parent or guardian agreeing to co-sponsor and be equally responsible for the conduct and supervision of any such celebration.

To reserve a tent for your own post-Commencement gathering, please carefully review the 2023 Individual Post-Commencement Celebration Guidelines and submit your Individual Post-Commencement Celebration Agreement signed by student and parent host, a Certificate of Insurance (COI), and the tent rental fee to the Office of the President by Friday, April 7.

Space is limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Your gathering and tent rental is not secured until your 2023 Individual Post-Commencement Celebration Agreement, COI, and tent rental fee (payable by credit card or check made out to Trustees of Trinity College) have been processed by the College and you have received a confirmation email.
