Common Hour intends to offer the Trinity community an opportunity to absent themselves from daily tasks and concerns, gather, and engage in topics of interest and enjoy performances, lectures, discussions, and readings that enrich our cultural and intellectual lives. The designated weekly hours also seek to showcase the best of what occurs within our campus community.  A light lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis during Tuesday Common Hour. If you plan on bringing a class or group to a Tuesday Common Hour program, please e-mail in order for adequate food to be requested.
