Traditions reinforce the fabric of community at Trinity-Pawling, playing an essential role in the dynamic of the learning and living environment. Gathering for Chapel each day as a group of individuals reaffirms our similarities rather than our differences. The way students choose to dress and present themselves, both on and off campus, reflects their commitment to character. Family-style meals provide shared discussions over a meal, promoting community and connectedness. Traditions such as these are the symbolic features that give substance to our lives on campus. They allow the School to pursue growth with deep integrity, at the individual and institutional levels.
