Traditional Events

Trinity observes several traditional events each year.

Sophomore Pin

This is the day that all sophomores declare a major and receive their “TC” gold pin. Freshmen, Junior, and Senior sisters come to support Sophomore sister.

Well Sings

There are two well sings each year: Cap and Gown and Christmas. This is the time when each class sings to one another at the top of their lungs in the courtyard. Christmas is the time when each class sings by candlelight on each tier of the well. First year students are on the fourth floor of the well, third year students are on the third floor, second year students on the second floor and seniors are on the first floor in the center of the well. Each class will re-write catchy tunes that relate to student life at Trinity. Freshmen choose senior sisters, Juniors choose Freshmen sisters, and Sophomores choose Freshmen sisters.

Cap and Gown Weekend

This is the first day that Seniors are allowed to wear the senior caps and gowns. They can wear them at any point throughout the year up until graduation. Freshmen greet Senior sisters with flowers and balloons as Seniors leave Notre Dame Chapel. Sophomores and Juniors come to support Senior sisters.

Junior Ring

After mass, members of the Junior class receive their class rings. Students can order or they may use rings they already own.

First Year Medal

First year students are officially welcomed into the Trinity community by signing the honor book. They also receive their freshman medal. Sophomore, Junior, and Senior sisters come to support Freshmen.

Trinity Sisters

Trinity prides itself on sisterhood, which is why it is so important that this tradition continues.

Christmas on Campus

This tradition includes a week full of CAA sponsored activities. The Christmas tree is decorated in Social Hall and both residence halls. Each class re-writes classic Christmas songs, relating them to life at Trinity. After the Well Sing, first year students collaborate and perform a skit in honor of the senior class.
