Trinity IDP student, Mark Funk, took photos at and around Trinity College, then let his imagination take over. Using oils, Funk painted on plywood and layers of resin an abstract version of each photograph, but replacing a key element of each photo with white space. The idea, says Funk, is to show how the eye translates information based on details, and how that perception may change depending on which details are included and which aren’t.
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.

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 with an impressive 75-7 record in four years.

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.
