Last February 16 (Tuesday)at 1:00pm, TUA administrators came together for a special Trinity Talk, online panel discussion to talk about the Trinity community, the different colleges, units, sections, and offices of the university, as well as their experiences, and thoughts. The program started with the introduction of the administrators to give those students a glimpse of the different administrators who some have not met in person due to an almost a year of online classes.
