Trinity Hosts Open Days in the US
Posted on 14 March 2016
Trinity held a series of Open Days in the US last week from 10 to 13 March. This is the third year that Trinity has held US Open Days, which have now become a popular fixture in the calendar of international events. The events were held in three locations this year: Washington D.C. on Thursday 10 March, New York on Saturday 12 March and Boston on Sunday 13 March.
Trinity’s Open Days are aimed at prospective US students, their parents and high school counsellors, who wish to discover more about studying in Ireland’s leading university. The events aim to bring Trinity to the States. They are designed to create the sense of a campus visit for those in the US, with a range of academics, support staff and alumni in attendance.
The Open Days were held in the National Cathedral School, Washington D.C., Rye Country Day School, New York and Boston College High School. They featured virtual campus tours, student societies and services, an alumni panel and presentations by the Vice Provost for Global Relations Prof. Juliette Hussey and other Trinity academic and staff members.
The ‘Campus Open Days’ also offer those interested in Trinity direct access to staff from across the College. Trinity’s Schools of Business, English, Physics and Chemistry, Computer Science and Statistics, in addition its Careers Advisory Service were all represented as part of the ‘Mini Fair’ section of the Open Days. Here, visitors were able to meet with staff, ask questions and explore the many academic and non-academic opportunity at Trinity. Attendees were able to experience Trinity Stateside and gain an understanding of what it would be like to study in Dublin.
Trinity is currently hosting a series of additional events in the US, including Chicago, Texas and California.
