Guests Enjoy Jubilation!

This past weekend, the Troll greeted guests arriving for Jubilation!  2008. The annual fundraiser, held on Trinity’s campus this year, was offered on two nights, Friday, October 3, and Saturday, October 4, to accommodate as many guests as possible.

“Troll”ey tours took passengers to see the Bootsma Bookstore Café where guests enjoyed fellowship and refreshments while listening to live music. Visitors were then dropped off at the Art and Communication Center (ARCC) for a student-led tour of the building.

As attendees toured the 44,000 square feet of teaching, performance, and art exhibition space, students enthusiastically shared facts about the new building. The ARCC is Trinity’s most technologically advanced building with wireless capability throughout, digital access control to most areas, and Voice over Internet Protocol phones throughout. There are advanced art, print, painting, photo, and sculpture studios for students to express their creativity and knowledge. Students—and community members—will enjoy the new black box theatre; companion space includes dressing rooms, a make-up room, a scene shop, and a costume shop.

Jubilation Day 2Lottie DeWitt, whose generosity funded the William and Milada (Lottie) Dewitt Lobby, traveled all the way from Arizona to attend the ARCC dedication on Friday morning and to see the progress made on the new building.

“Last time I was here to visit the ARCC, it was at its very beginning stages and was simply a hole in the ground,” said DeWitt. “It has come so far, and it is a great honor to have a part in this project and to see my husband’s legacy live on in the lives of these students.”

After the tours, guests enjoyed an evening of music, inspirational testimonies, and dinner.  Guest speakers presented the exciting plan for “The Time Is Now” Capital Campaign that will raise the necessary funds for more updated technology, enhanced facilities, and better resources for students and faculty at the College.
