2020 Parents Senior Tribute Gift

It is a tradition for Trinity parents to honor their graduating seniors by participating in the Parents Senior Tribute Gift Campaign (PSTG), which gives parents and families a way to make a lasting and meaningful difference at the college by supporting future Bantams. The 2020 Parents Senior Tribute Gift Committee is excited to continue this annual tradition with the Class of 2020.  

Trinity values the role that it plays in helping to guide and prepare our students as they take the next step in becoming the innovative, inspiring leaders of tomorrow. Your support of the 2020 Parents Senior Tribute Gift helps make it possible for Trinity to provide the educational experiences that will have a lasting impact on our students for years to come.


Senior Parent Project - Catalyst Summer Internship Fund​

The 2020 Senior Parent Project will support the Catalyst Summer Internship Fund, which awards stipends of up to $3,500 for full-time summer internships that enable students to gain firsthand insight into careers related to their academic and personal interests. These experiential learning opportunities allow students to develop their leadership and collaborative skills, utilize the knowledge they gain through a liberal arts education, and build a professional network that will all serve them well in the future. By supporting the Catalyst Summer Internship Fund you are helping future Bantams better navigate their own paths to success.

Senior Brick Dedication

In 2020, the college will honor the senior class by ensuring that each graduate will have their name engraved on a brick installed on the Lower Long Walk. The inscribed bricks will unite the class in celebration, and symbolize the mark these students have made on Trinity before they go out and make their mark on the world. When they return to campus as alumni, these bricks will serve as a reminder of their many great memories and accomplishments from their time as Trinity students.  There will be a formal ceremony to recognize the Class of 2020 and their senior bricks during Commencement weekend on Saturday, May 16, 2020.
