Record numbers attend the #TrinityOpenDayUS series
25th April 2019
Global Relation's annual US recruitment events took place in eight locations across the country recently. More than 475 interested undergraduate and postgraduate students attended along with their families, many making the visit part of their wider college tours.
Open Days were held in Boston, New York Rye and San Francisco. Information sessions were held in Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. In addition, Washington and New York City information sessions were included in the itinerary. In November 2018 information sessions were also held in Houston and Nashville.
Academic and administrative staff were available to answer student queries at the event and the alumni and academic panels were very well received. Trinity speakers included Professor Kevin O'Kelly, Dean of Students; Dr. Zuleika Rodgers, Dual Degree Director, Professor Henry Rice, Head of School of Engineering; and Sue Power, Academic Registry.
What the 2019 attendees had to say about the events:
“This was very well organized, it provided much insight into Trinity’s academic offerings and student life. I will recommend it to prospective students.”
“I really liked the thoroughness of the information presented, and it was really cool to hear from the alumni about the experience of going to Trinity.”
“I left with a strong feeling that my son would thrive at Trinity. The experiences of the alumni validated my impressions that it would be a perfect fit.”
“The staff were generous with their time and extremely gracious.”
“I attended as an offer holding student who wanted to learn more about life at Trinity. I learned more about the school itself and programs that I could complete, such as Trinity Smart-Start and logistical questions that my parents and I had wanted to ask the admissions team.”
“We appreciated being able to see so much of the campus (virtually), since travelling to Dublin to see it in person at this time of year would have been very difficult indeed. Many thanks for an excellent and informative morning.”
