A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

"All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals, and to prayer." -Acts 2:42

It was great to see many of you on campus this past Saturday for the Alumni Sports Weekend and Troll-gating. We were blessed with excellent competition and great weather topped off with some tasty food from the grill. Fellowship, often over meals, is a critical part of life in the kingdom as we share and grow together. I encourage you to reach out to someone in fellowship during the coming weeks; whether its a friend, family member, fellow Trinity alum, or someone you've never met. Call someone you haven't talked to in awhile, stop in and visit a friend, let someone know you're praying for them, and maybe even invite someone to join you for a meal.

Blessings,

Travis Bandstra '06
Director of Alumni Relations

ALUMNI REFERRAL PROGRAM LAUNCHED
It is in the spirit of continuing community that the alumni office, in conjunction with admissions, has launched the Alumni Referral Program. This is an opportunity to reach out to a prospective student and encourage him/her to apply for admission to Trinity, particularly if he/she may not consider Trinity otherwise. Because this student comes with your recommendation, we will waive the $20 fee that is required with all applications for admission. For the fee to be waived, please provide the student with a code for him/her to use on the application for admission. This code is unique to you and can only be used once, so choose carefully!
