RECORD ATTENDANCE AT
BLUEPRINTS 2006 - 6/08/06
A record 450 new faces graced
Trinity's campus for the annual Blueprints weekend on July 7-8. Incoming
freshmen, transfer students, and their family members experienced the academic,
social, and spiritual dimensions of Trinity for the first time together.
The weekend began with a
barbeque supper, followed by the Amazing Troll Race, an Ice Cream Social,
and a Praise and Worship service, similar to those held every Thursday
night during the school year in the Ozinga Chapel. The class of 2010 capped
the evening with a variety of activities, including open gym, outdoor soccer,
board games, and snacks in the Molenhouse Student Center. Day Two began
with a breakfast hosted by President Steven Timmermans, followed by the
groundbreaking ceremony for the $8.7 million Art and Communication Center. The
balance of the day focused on giving students an opportunity to register
for classes and meet with faculty members, while their parents attended
sessions to learn more about financial aid and the role Trinity will play
in their son's or daughter's life.
"I feel comfortable and warmly
welcomed," said Zach Vis '10 of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin. "I'm excited
for what's to come."
