What is H.O.P.E. Hall?
H.O.P.E Hall is a student-created mixed upper-class and first-year student living learning community. In this hall, students develop a special sense of community with their classmates through service learning.
H.O.P.E. Hall serves beyond the borders of campus in order to discover how we might best impact a lifestyle different than our own. We strive for excellence as we represent Trinity in the community. We treat individuals in H.O.P.E. Hall and the community with compassion and respect, celebrating their talents and strengths, all while cultivating a community within H.O.P.E. Hall, Trinity, and San Antonio.
