What started out as a large
crater on the south end of Trinity's campus has begun to define its shape
with a concrete foundation, steel pillars, and brick walls arising from
the ground. In a year from now, construction workers should be putting
the finishing touches on Alumni Hall, the new residence hall that will
welcome students for the 2004-05 academic year.
"We are pleased with the
progress of this project," said Tom Vloedman, vice president for business
affairs. "It's good to see that the foundation has been laid and the building
is starting to take shape."
The other major short-term
construction project, a theater-art complex, is still in its initial planning
stages. According to Vloedman, representatives from the College's art and
communication arts departments are discussing ways to develop and design
the future theater arts building; no definitive timetable has been set
for construction to begin..
Trinity continues its pursuit
of a rezoning and special-use permit for the Dunlap's restaurant property
east of the campus. The city of Palos Heights rejected the College's request
for that permit after a meeting in late June.
