Regional and International Trinity Events
Trinity College parents and alumni live all over the world, and as the college continues to develop as a truly global institution, our network has become global as well. Area clubs and regional events constitute the primary means by which Trinity and its alumni and parents (particularly those who are geographically separated from the college) can establish and maintain a close working relationship. Local events are organized to create opportunities for networking, ongoing education, and Bantam camaraderie. They also help to establish, renew, and maintain the connections of alumni, parents, and friends in the local community. Regional volunteers and current clubs work with the college to plan events in Asia, Europe, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Fairfield, Florida, Hartford, Los Angeles, New Haven, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and more. These events are facilitated by the Alumni Office, and in many cases families are welcome to attend.
