The Trinity community gathered at dusk on December 1 to mark the “Lighting of the Long Walk,” an event led by President Joanne Berger-Sweeney.

Built in the 1870s, the Long Walk was the first group of buildings that were constructed when the college moved to its current location on Summit Street. Against that backdrop, student-led activities and a hot chocolate bar greeted community members. The outdoor affair included remarks by Berger-Sweeney, Reverend Marcus G. Halley, and Rabbi Rachel Putterman.

By nightfall, the historic buildings and trees at the heart of Trinity’s campus, where generations of students have passed, illuminated the darkness with white glimmers.
