Students who learn to navigate transitions are more likely to enjoy an academically enriching and personally satisfying college experience.
College involves a vast nebulae of choices, presenting some pathways that students are not equipped to navigate successfully, on their own. It’s not rocket science, but it’s sophisticated in its complexity.
Trinity College’s Office of Student Success was created to support every student as you strive to design your individual map toward success. We are here to help you navigate your journey, and look forward to connecting with you – wherever you are in your journey – and helping you enjoy your best personalized student experience at Trinity College!
We know that transitions can be challenging, and we also know that you were selected to become part of this community because of your great promise! We’re prepared to share the tools, resources, and relationships that, combined with your talents, will set you up for success.
For families, your experience is linked directly to your student’s sense of belonging and contentment. You know that there are ups and downs—life happens—and you would like to be actively supportive. You can! Encourage your students to connect, actively and often, so that they find whatever will help them enjoy a successful college journey.
The Office of Student Success has built a strong team of professional staff, institutional partnerships, and peer mentors who are ready to work with students. There may be a particular issue for which a student seeks help or there may be no problem, at all. Many students connect with us simply because we’re offering a fun trek or valuable workshop or just because they’re looking to make more campus connections!
We love working with students, and we want to help you better express your passions, find ‘your people,’ and explore area resources, both on and off-campus. We can help you find the right club or service opportunity or meet peers with similar interests or who want to explore the local towns. We are happy to connect with you from the time you arrive on campus until the time that you graduate. That’s our business, so let us help!
Our door is open, every weekday, and there’s always coffee or tea on for our guests! (From the Keurig, that is.) Drop by to say ‘hello’ and learn more about our programs and services.
“Vision is a destination—a fixed point to which we focus all effort.
Strategy is a route—an adaptable path to get us where we want to go.”
Tiana Starks '21, Lead Service Ambassador
The Office of Student Success has been an amazing support network for me. Roberta Rogers, specifically, has done an amazing job with reminding me that I am prepared for leadership positions and has guided me to opportunities that I may have never considered before coming to Trinity. With the ongoing support of the Student Success team, I am able to converse with students and support them as well."
