FIRST FALL ALUMNI WEEKEND
SUCCESSFUL - 9/27/05
Troll alumni headed back
to Trinity's campus Saturday, September 24, to renew old friendships, munch
on great grilled food, and watch and compete in alumni sports games during
the annual Alumni Fall Weekend. In a show of jovial Troll spirit, alumni
got involved in various activities, and many showed support by watching
the current women's volleyball team and men's soccer team in action.
Sponsored by the office of
alumni relations, alums were treated to Troll-gating and games in alumni
baseball, volleyball, and soccer. For the baseball match up, alumni played
two games against the current men's team, splitting the victories. Tim
Hurley '00, brought his miniature blue and white bus, which has become
a familiar site at Trinity outings over the past year, serving as the site
of Troll-gating, Trinity's version of tailgating. Spectators of the men's
soccer game and alums and family members who attended the alumni games
enjoyed grilled brats and hotdogs.
"We are here for our alums,
ready and willing to serve them in whatever way we can," Kelly Netjes said.
"Whether that would be helping to organize an alumni baseball game or to
grill and serve bratwursts during a soccer game, we want to give them an
'excuse' to get back on campus."
The alumni board met on campus
on Friday, September 23 to discuss plans for the coming year. The board's
goals include increasing awareness of the alumni scholarship and making
a connection with current Trinity students in order to educate them about
what it means to be a Trinity graduate. They will meet again on campus
on Friday, February 3, 2006 for Homecoming weekend.
