The Trinity College women’s lacrosse team was absent in person from Trinity’s Commencement celebration, but they were there in spirit. The team could not be ‘Neath the Elms at Trinity, as they were busy playing in the NCAA Div. III National Championship Final in Maryland. The seniors, equipped with 2013 gear, found their own way to celebrate graduation before their game, in a parking lot. Trinity did not come back to Hartford with their second straight NCAA Championship, but the game marked the end of a remarkable four years for these seniors, who finished a remarkable 75-7 in four years.

Senior Michael Benson relaxes with Margaret Lindsey, dean of First-Year Program, and his father, Dr. Paul Benson, in the new Adirondack chairs located in the Life Sciences quad. These chairs were a recent donation from the Benson family and have been a huge hit on campus this spring. Students take advantage of this ideal lounge location from morning till night, moving the chairs around the quad to best suit the angle of the sun and the size of their group. As the semester draws to a close, the Adirondack chairs provide a peaceful setting for students to study, work in groups, socialize, or unwind after a long day.
