Do you face the world boldly? Trinity does! And one of the best ways to experience our community of diverse and global citizens is by engaging with us on social media.
Trinity College uses social media as a digital canvas to share our stories and to discuss news and events important to the college and our city of Hartford. Our main social media accounts are where you’ll find Bantam Spotlight features, Instagram takeovers, athletic highlights, and updates about Trinity alumni and community influencers. Prospective students will find deeper insight into student life at Trinity and are encouraged to reach out on social media with questions about the application process. In the event of a crisis or emergency, the Office of Communications may also utilize Trinity’s social media accounts as a platform for updates and as a way for our community to remain safe and informed.
Much like Trinity’s mission, social media has the ability to engage, connect, and transform. We hope you’ll face this digital world boldly along with us.
