Sexual Assault and Racism at Trinity College

For those currently enrolled in the class of 2024 or considering applying to Trinity this fall, it is extremely important to look at the Instagram pages [deleted because Instagram tags are not permitted]. The pages curate over 400 stories between them about incidents of intense racism and sexual assault at Trinity, predominantly in the fraternities, but also in other places on campus.

As a current student at Trinity in conversation with my friends from other schools, I do feel that Trinity is an especially hostile place for women and POC. The fraternities, a social system that many other “peers” of Trinity eliminated decades ago, is (in my opinion) a major factor of the hostile social climate on campus.

Many other schools are curating similar Instagram pages sharing their own stories.
