Spring Reunion 2014

 

Reunion 2013 was a great success. Over 400 guest came back to 25 Trinity events to meet up with old friends, make new ones, and see what has changed at Trinity.

Reunion 2014 is set for May 30 to June 1

Trinity’s Spring Reunion is a unique and special event for the College and our alumni. Each year, hundreds of alumni come from abroad and from down the street to reconnect with their classmates, see old friends and meet new ones. Our longest standing alumni have a chance to meet some of our students and newest graduates. The familiar buildings offer a warm homecoming while the new additions and recent changes are reminders of the new generation and our collective future as the Trinity family. All of this and great food too!

Though this year’s honoured years end with 4’s and 9’s, ALL alumni are welcome to join us at our signature events such as the Garden Party in the newly renovated Strachan Hall and the Quad. For the anniversary years, many year reps organize events just for their year. Dinners, cocktail parties, pub nights and even parties generously hosted in the homes of classmates – food, fun and fond memories are what make Trinity’s Spring Reunion so special.

Please keep checking this page for updates and more events and details become finalized.

 

 

 

 

Come Back and Give Back!

Every reunion awakens memories of wonderful friends, and special occasions. But reunions also remind us how important Trinity has been in our lives. Reunion 2014 is a time to feel proud about being part of an institution that has always provided an outstanding education to the innovators and leaders of tomorrow. 
 
Just as generous alumni supported us, it is vital that we invest in today’s students. There are many essential resources - beyond the cost of tuition - that make a Trinity education so special. In honour of your reunion year, I hope you will consider making a special donation to Trinity College.
