Trinity College, founded in 1823, is a private, independent, nonsectarian liberal arts college of the highest quality. Its rigorous curriculum is firmly grounded in the traditional liberal arts disciplines and marked by an array of interdisciplinary studies, exceptional offerings in science and engineering and distinctive educational connections with Connecticut's capital city and cities around the world. An extensive community outreach program and a strong internship program provide Trinity students with uncommonly rich opportunities to extend classroom learning, explore potential careers and make a difference on campus and in the community. The architectural design of the present campus, developed in the 1870s, was influenced by the English institutions Oxford and Cambridge. Its 100-acre, urban campus is located in Hartford.
