We know that there are a lot of things you still need to get done before you start your first day of classes, and we can help with that!
Even though we won’t be able to gather together in person as a large group for the New Student Orientation due to COVID-19, we are providing an online course to give you all the resources you need to be successful in graduate school. The course will be accessible through Moodle, and we’ll send you a link when it opens on Thursday, August 20. The information and resources provided in this course are especially important for your success here at Trinity, so all incoming students are required to complete the course.
