After several years of planning, the College set groundbreaking for the Art and Communication Center for Saturday, July 8. Last week, the Board of Trustees gave the go-ahead for construction of the $8.7 million building. 

"We've been working on this building for years, making sure it addresses new technologies in communication and provides creative options for theater and art," said President Steven Timmermans. 

Among other things, the Art and Communication Center will include a "black box" theatre; a flexible space that will be used for student drama productions and for teaching television production. 

"The building's design allows for expansion," Timmermans said. "Trinity's growth requires planning not only for the present, but also for the future." 

The two-story structure will be situated along the creek on the east side of campus, south of the Mitchell Memorial Gymnasium. The Board's action stems from the faithful response of constituents. The College has received about $6.5 million in gifts and pledges for the Art and Communication Center and hopes to raise the remaining $2.2 million during construction. 

Everyone is invited to the July 8 groundbreaking. Ceremonies begin at 9 a.m. at the parking lot directly south of the Mitchell Memorial Gymnasium. See campus map for exact location.
