  • lights, trin, action
    BACKFIELD PARTY

  • intercollegiate event
    BLOCK PARTY
    We'll be collaborating with Woodsworth to host the Devonshire Block party where first years can take advantage of inflatables, the dunk tank, mini games, and lots & lots of free stuff.
  • MATRICULATION
    This semi-formal event is hosted by Provost Mayo Moran and is regarded a favourite by many Trinity Students. Students are welcomed into college with a formal ceremony with a semi-formal reception in the Quad afterwards. The closest thing our movie stars will have to the Oscars: a fancy photo-shoot in the Quad, a long ceremony, and an appetizer-heavy networking session afterwards.
  • dazed & confused (unrated)
    FROSH LEADER ADVICE SESSION
    Get first-hand advice from your most successful frosh leaders about how to handle work in a variety of majors. Find out how to stay on top of your work, how to play the university game properly, and how to recover if you find yourself in muddy waters. Upper years will also be able to answer any questions students might have about events or life at Trin (e.g., what is wristbanding and why do I have to obsessively refresh the Trinity website at 9 am on a Monday morning?). This event will build strong relationships between upper years and first years.
  • toga | olympics
    TOGA PARTY | OLYMPIC GAMES
    The climax, falling action, and conclusion of an undeniably strenuous week of fun. Put your decorating and dancing skills to the test on the most anticipated night of your Trinematic Adventure. Or, if it tickles your fancy, carry on the Olympic legacy by showing off your Water Pong, flip cup, and rage cage skills!
