Blueprints for the Future

Blueprints gave incoming freshmen an opportunity to start mapping out a plan for their future at Trinity and a chance to connect with the people they will be calling classmates, fellow Trolls, friends, and professors.
The festivities began with a faculty-hosted barbeque supper on Friday evening. The evening was full of activities, including an ice cream social, a praise and worship service, and time to spend with family members and new friends at popular campus spots, such as the Bootsma Bookstore Café.
Day two gave students an opportunity to register for classes and to confer with faculty advisers. The Information Expo supplied students and parents with information about campus organizations and local churches, banks, and businesses. Students interested in studying in downtown Chicago for three weeks in August through the Chicago Trinity Adventure learned more about this exciting new opportunity.
Palos Heights mayor Robert Straz welcomed families to the community. Straz, who was a long-time adjunct faculty member at Trinity, says he is also pleased that the community is becoming more aware of the resources available to them at the College.
“The College is an asset to the community, providing a nice place to enjoy theater productions and gathering places like the Bootsma Bookstore Café.”
For some students and their families, Blueprints was their first time visiting campus. For Ana Ansurez, one of the winners of the Greater Chicago Christian Leadership Scholarship, it was just another chance to get to know even more about Trinity.
“I wanted to be on a small campus,” said the Chicago native, “and I’m most looking forward to moving in.”
Mary DeSoto of Tinley Park was attending with her daughter Monica.
“We like it here, and as a teacher, I appreciate the quality of education Trinity offers.”
