Hey all! I’m reaching out today to all the ladies of the class of 2020 to tell you about one of the amazing pre-orientation programs offered here at Trinity! Venture Trinity is an exclusively female-orientated program happening August 25-27th. At Venture, about 40 incoming First Year students will have the opportunity to come to Trinity a few days early and meet some of your fellow classmates and future professors and administrators. Venture is an amazing program for a few reasons. First, you are able to meet some new people before the rest of the class floods the campus during orientation. This can be helpful (and slightly relieving) to know a few people prior to those first few chaotic days on campus. Second, Venture brings in past participants, whom are now upperclassmen, to show you the ropes and provide useful First Year advice. Third, the networking opportunities that Venture provides can open doors for internships and connections in the future!
Although Venture only lasts for two days, there are so many activities and events packed within them. There are things like team-building tasks and large group debates and discussions. Also, a highlight of the program in the all-women panel of speakers that are invited to present and answer questions. Many of these women are Trinity Alumni who have become successful in many different walks of life, all of whom desire to come back and share their stories and advice with the new generation of Trinity women. Finally, if you’re lucky, President Berger-Sweeney will make an appearance as well!
Personally, Venture Trinity was a great first step for me into life at Trinity. I was able to connect with some amazing women and with a handful of professors that I remain close with today. After Venture ended, I had a new sense of confidence and excitement in beginning my college career. Also, I can’t go without saying that through Venture, I have met some of my best friends in life. The relationships that you build with the women around you during the Venture experience are certainly ones that will remain with you throughout your time at Trinity. I would encourage all women in the class of 2020 to consider applying to be a part of this wonderful opportunity Trinity has to offer!
