Spring Reunion 2013
All Reunion Events
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 3’s and 8’s, ALL alumni are welcome to join us at our signature events. The Garden Party will be even more special this year as we celebrate in the newly renovated Strachan Hall. The St. Hilda’s Luncheon speaker Tanya Heath-Brimont (9T3) is coming from Paris to talk about Inventive Inspiration and Building a Business of Shoes, and the archives and library will be displaying pieces of our history for all to see.
For the anniversary years, many of your year reps have organized events just for your year. Dinners, cocktail parties, pub nights and even parties generously hosted in the homes of your classmates – food, fun and fond memories are what makes Trinity Spring Reunion so special. For everyone else, you don’t need a five year anniversary to come back to the College – we can’t wait to see you!
Below is the list of events planned so far. Check back often to see what your year reps will plan!
