Trinity offers a host of diverse clubs, organizations and extracurricular activities designed to meet the interests of students. With over 30 student-led clubs, there is something for everyone. From traditional clubs like Shields in Service, which orchestrates community service opportunities, to our Society for Science, there are dozens of ways for students to get involved in on-campus organizations. And if a student has a particular passion, they can investigate beginning a new club to share their gifts with the greater community. Participation in a club or student organization is another way for students at Trinity to Discover their Paths.
Our world language clubs (Spanish, Latin, and French) offer a variety of cultural experiences to help students delve deeper into other cultures.
