Greek Life has a long and proud history at Trinity College, dating back more than 165 years. Beginning with the founding of the Epsilon chapter of St. Anthony Hall Delta Psi in 1850, Greek life has expanded and changed over the years. We are home to 15 organizations, with 300+ student members, and many alumni who pride themselves on the rich traditions and storied pasts found in the halls of each of these organizations.

Greek Giving Week is a friendly competition to increase alumni participation and support Greek life at Trinity. From September 30, 2021 to October 7, 2021, Greek alumni and students will come together in hopes their Greek chapter shows the most pride through participation.

Gifts during Greek Giving Week can go to: supporting general Greek life at Trinity College; providing Greek scholarships; and promoting leadership development for Greek students.
