First-year football students arrive more than a week before the beginning of Football Camp (August 11-20) to prepare for their first semester at Trinity. The Academic Success Program (ASP) is designed to help them make a strong start, bringing together a range of information, including intensive writing preparation, and resources from Academic Success and others from across the university community. Details about Move-In Day (August 2) and the plans for ASP are sent by email to football students and their families in the spring. Questions? Contact Betty Curry - bcurry [at] trinity.edu.
The Summer Bridge First Year Experience (FYE) is a unique opportunity to facilitate the transition to Trinity and introduce new Tigers to college-level academic coursework. Designed specifically to welcome those from first-generation and historically underrepresented populations, the program provides an early introduction to the available resources that will help new students in the transition to Trinity, both academically and socially.
Eligible students are those who have expressed interest in STEM degree programs reliant on quantitative reasoning skills (including the sciences, engineering, math, and health professions) and whose math background and/or test scores suggest that they may be at risk to struggle in these programs. Through an online summer experience called QBIT (Quantitative Buildup for Incoming Tigers), as well as a two-week session before New Student Orientation, students will experience an exciting and intensive introduction to success in quantitative reasoning courses and college life in general.
