Showstopping fireworks fall over the statue of Trinity College founder Bishop Thomas Church Brownell during Reunion Weekend 2022. The Saturday evening light show capped a full day of Reunion events in addition to the pandemic-postponed 2020 Commencement ceremony. The festive feeling will continue through to next year, in May 2023, when the college kicks off its bicentennial celebration, Trinity at 200: Committed to the Future since 1823.

We recently had the distinct pleasure of welcoming the Class of 2026. As it is every year, when the newest class matriculates at Trinity College, they join ready to cultivate their curiosity and to choose a path, sometimes circuitous, that will lead them for the next four years and beyond. This path may be straight and conventional, but more likely it will be unconventional and unique.
