Campus Traditions

What makes life at Trinity fun? Well, one or two things… like turning our library into a golf course. Or hosting an annual all-male pageant. Or an explosive paint battle on the campus lawn. When you schedule a visit to campus, ask some students you meet about these traditions. They’ll probably have a lot of stories to tell!

Golf in Rolf

Golf in Rolf is an annual event at Trinity where students design colorful and unusual golf courses inside Trinity’s Rolfing Library. These unconventional golf courses are a great way for students to unleash their creative potential and make memories.

A Perrin Christmas

The Perrin Christmas Story Reading is an annual event where students gather during the Christmas season to hear President Nicholas Perrin read the Christmas story.

Santa Lucia Dance

Santa Lucia pays tribute to Trinity’s Swedish roots by celebrating a tradition that has been around for centuries. Trinity holds an annual Santa Lucia dance each December. The student body votes to elect one freshman girl who embodies strong Christian character. Previous Santa Lucia court members surprise the incoming court by surprising them and taking them out to a restaurant in the middle of the night. The winner remains unknown until the night of the dance when one girl is given the title, Ms. Santa Lucia. This winter celebration is a great time for students to create memories together and is always a student favorite.
