Student Life

For Trinity students, an active life outside of the classroom is an integral part of the college experience. Many students choose to explore the varied cultural, historical, and community events that Washington, D.C., offers. A student can research her family tree at the National Archives, attend a play or hear a symphony at The Kennedy Center, see heads of state, visit the White House, or serve as a Smithsonian volunteer.

A wide range of on-campus activities take place every day that involve all members of the Trinity Community, including athletic events, public lectures, meetings of student organizations, and Trinity Traditions.


Trinity believes that health and fitness are an important part of an education and that recreation and sports promote self-confidence, teamwork and healthy lifestyles.
