In addition to offering educationally developmental programs, the Residential Life Office sponsors annual and collaborates with Academic Affairs to offer various Living Learning Communities to further aid in the development and growth of the students.
At the beginning of each semester hundreds of students come out to compete as a residence hall in various athletic and trivia events. Winning teams can win any number of prizes including t-shirts, medals, and gift cards. The Residential Life Office works closely with the Athletics and Intramurals staff to make this event a success.
This tradition features a late night breakfast provided by Residential Life and ARAMARK for students at 11:59 pm on the second night of reading days (i.e. the night before finals). Hundreds of students typically attend this FREE event.
Trinity Night at the Spurs
In the past as many as 1,000 students, faculty, and staff have gone to the Alamodome to watch the San Antonio Spurs NBA championship basketball team. Now that the Spurs play in the cutting edge, but smaller AT&T center, there are two nights a year that the Spurs host TU. The first of these games will occur late in the fall semester while the other will take place early in the spring semester. This program has taken place for over fifteen years and is the largest single off campus program at Trinity University.
In this hall, students will explore entrepreneurship through real-world application. Students will form teams, create start-up business, and participate in a business plan pitch competition. Students of the hall will be given the opportunity to enroll in an introductory entrepreneurship course to learn the basics of business creation and management.
Homelessness Outreach Pursuing Education (H.O.P.E.) Hall
HOPE Hall, Homelessness Outreach Pursuing Education, serves beyond the borders of campus in order to discover how to best impact a lifestyle different than their own. HOPE Hall members commit to serving people experiencing homelessness by weekly volunteering with a community partner each semester. A student-created mixed upper-class and first-year student living learning community, the hall allows members to build relationships with each other through shared service experience and reflection. Academically, service experiences within the community provide new insights and perspectives to be explored in a classroom setting. Please visit www.trinity.edu/hopehall for more details.
