TRIP DOWN UNDER AMAZES SOCCER PLAYERS

After their trip to Australia in June, former Trinity soccer player Meagan Dustin ’04 and current Troll Tina Visser could not decide what aspect of their experience was most outstanding—the snorkeling, surfing, or sights and sounds.

PROFILES

LONGY ANYANWU—ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF COMPUTER SCIENCE

Longy Anyanwu’s teaching philosophy is simple: no one is unqualified to learn. “I take issue with anyone who believes that some people are not educable because of where they come from,” he said. “As a college professor for many years, I have met students of various social classes, economic conditions, and academic backgrounds. I’ve concluded that no one is uneducable. We may have different starting points, but we all have the ability to learn.” To read more about Dr. Anyanwu and other faculty members, see our Web site at http://tcc.trnty.edu/faculty/anyanwu/index.html.
