Spring Reunion

 

 

May 27 - 29, 2016

 

Mark your calendar and make your plans to come back to Trinity. May 27 – 29

All alumni are invited to join us for Spring Reunion 2016. In addition to events for all grads like the signature Garden Party and the new ROMwalk of Trinity College, special events will be planned for the 1s and 6s.

The Saturday Dinner and Garden Party in Strachan Hall and the Quad is the annual flagship event for all grads to not only connect with their own classmates but to meet with alumni from across the generations and from the classes that graduated close to their own.

For our honoured years, those ending in 1s and 6s, your Year Reps are already underway with plans for Year events for the weekend. You can find a list of the reps here. If you would like to volunteer on your Year Committee or with Reunion in general please get in touch with us by phone 416-978-2707 or by email julia.paris@utoronto.ca and we will connect you with your Year Rep.
