Paul Assaiante has been at Trinity since 1994, and finds it an honor and a privledge to be surrounded by so many wonderful and energized young people.

In Paul's words, "Trinity is a special school.  A diamond in the rough, and I still find that when the sun comes up, I want to be in the office, and when the day ends, I am shocked that someone would actually pay me to do what I do. The tennis and squash teams have done well, and it is thrilling to observe the students learning lifes’ lessons while competing with each and with youngsters from other schools. The last eight years I have been involved in the fundraising for athletics, and have found it most gratifying to see such positive results. The christening of a new hockey rink, two new synthetic fields, a state of the art fitness center, and two spectacular squash courts have all been completed during this time frame. Again, I pinch myself daily at my good fortune to be at Trinity College.
