I am writing today about the Summer Welcome Receptions run through our Alumni Relations Office. These receptions occur each summer at various locations across the country and provide a great atmosphere for Trinity alumni, parents, and students to come together to welcome the incoming class of students to the Trinity family. I thought it was a particularly good time to write about these receptions as the Hartford reception is occurring tomorrow.
I remember attending the Hartford Welcome Reception with my family the summer before my sister’s first year at Trinity. As Trinity is located in Hartford, the reception often occurs on campus, which means that the many of the faculty, staff, and students on campus for the summer are able to attend. The other receptions, in locations ranging from Massachusetts to California, are hosted at a combination of clubs and homes of current parents or alumni. These receptions are not only an amazing way for incoming students and their families to meet each other, but also for them to meet members of the Trinity community from their area. It also provides a great way for alumni to catch up with each other.
So, for any incoming students of the Class of 2019 reading this, I truly suggest attending your local Summer Welcome Reception if you can. And for prospective students, these receptions are just one of the many examples of what it means to be a Bantam and how amazing it is to be a member of the Trinity family.
Until next time,
