News Release

More than 165 prospective students and parents from eight states flooded campus September 24 to experience Trinity Christian College during the first Parent Visit Day of the year. Rev. Tim Hoekstra, chaplain, opened with devotions at a welcome lunch and Dr. Mark Ward, associate provost, spoke about being prepared for the college experience. 

Visitors received tours of Trinity and attended breakout sessions on various topics ranging from financial aid, to student life, to academic offerings. The students also received a free Troll T-shirt. 

"Visit days are only one way the admissions office reaches out to high school students," said Pete Hamstra, vice president for advancement and admissions. 

Admissions counselors have been on the road this fall visiting high schools and attending college fairs throughout the United States. The College has already received several applications as a result of their efforts, said Hamstra.  

"It's fun to hear comments about how beautiful our campus is," he said. "Even more exciting, however, is hearing visitors talk about how welcome they feel here, and the wonderful people they meet while visiting. I heard more than one student say 'this is where I want to be next fall.' If this first visit day is any indicator of the kind of year we'll have, we should look for another fantastic school year starting in fall 2006."
