2012 Trinity Papers

The Trinity Papers is an annual journal that showcases outstanding undergraduate scholarship in a liberal arts education. Founded thirty years ago by the President’s Fellows, The Trinity Papers has become a part of Trinity’s rich history, and we are proud to contribute to it.

Acting on behalf of their individual departments, the President’s Fellows design and edit each year’s Trinity Papers. We judge each submission anonymously and work collaboratively to choose the best submissions for each year’s edition of The Trinity Papers.
