Tested by Experience

For a university that prides itself on its residential campus and experiential campus, being asked to move out and move online is a tall task. Trinity community members share their stories about grief and growing pains, but also about personal triumphs.

Break a Sweat

Right now, we're all sweating both the big and the small stuff. And Trinity's professors, alumni, counselors, psychologists, and spiritual leaders want you to know that's OK. It's healthy to grieve; it's natural to worry; and it's human to feel overwhelmed.

Facts Speak For Themselves

Right now, reliable information is as hot a commodity as toilet paper. It feels like we're getting conflicting advice around every corner about how to stay safe, how to stay healthy, and how to stay ourselves. Now, more than ever, is the time to cut out the noise and pay attention to the experts. From health care leadership to the economic aftermath, Trinity professors offer their expert takes on topics related to COVID-19.

Your voices have told us that this "new normal" is really anything but.
