Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut

Trinity College is a private, coeducational institution in Hartford, Connecticut. It is the second oldest college in Connecticut after Yale University in New Haven. Established in 1823, its principal founder and first president was the Rt. Rev. Thomas Brownell, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut. Originally named Washington College, the school changed its name to Trinity College in 1845. During most of the 19th century the institution had close ties with the Episcopal Church and offered courses in philosophy, oratory, the sciences, Greek, and Latin. In 1872 the college sold its campus to the city of Hartford, which used the site for construction of a new state capitol building.

In 1878 Trinity moved to its present location, a campus designed by British architect William Burges. Modeled after campuses at the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge in England, the Trinity campus was the first in the United States to be built in collegiate Gothic style. In the late 1800s the school gradually loosened its ties to the Episcopal Church.

The college became coeducational in 1968. Currently women and men comprise roughly equal percentages of the student body.

Trinity College confers bachelor's and master's degrees. It offers a liberal arts curriculum, with programs in the arts, humanities, sciences, economics, education, and engineering. The college's Watkinson Library includes special collections, such as the Ostram Enders Ornithology Collection and the Mark Twain Memorial, a collection featuring much of the correspondence of American writer Mark Twain. The school encourages international education and maintains a small branch campus in Rome, Italy.
