BLUEPRINTS DRAWS NEW
FACES TO CAMPUS - 7/16/05
Trinity's incoming class
of freshmen students took time to meet and greet each other during Blueprints
July 15 and 16.
The campus teemed with more
than 300 first-time students and their families when they arrived late
Friday afternoon. Admissions counselors were waiting to welcome them and
get them started on their activities for the evening, which included a
barbecue, the Amazing Troll Race, and praise and worship.
Parents discovered more about
their roles in their students' Trinity education. Throughout the two-day
event, they learned about the academic environment, financial aid guidelines,
and student development policies and initiatives.
For some, it gave comfort
to ease the adjustment of their children leaving home. Cindy and Rick Genzink
of Holland, Michigan, are preparing to send their first child to college.
"This is going to be a big
transition, but it will be good," said Cindy Genzink, whose daughter, Sarah,
will be a freshman at Trinity in August. "We hope Trinity will strengthen
and encourage her spiritually and lead her to establish Christian friendships
that will last a long time."
"I'm looking forward to being
here," Sarah Genzink said. "I liked the smaller size of the College, and
I think I can have a lot of fun here. Also, it's not too far from home."
