News Release

Parents, siblings, alumni, and friends of the College enjoyed three days of fun and fellowship on campus during the first Family Weekend October 29-31. An array of events and gatherings took place at various venues as Trinity showcased several aspects of its campus life and Chicago connection.

Music lovers were treated to a variety of genres over the weekend as the College's vocal and instrumental groups performed in the Ozinga Chapel. Artist Chris Overvoorde displayed some of his work at a reception Friday evening in the library's art gallery.

Trinity sports fans spent most of their time at Mitchell Memorial Gymnasium watching past and present Trolls on the hardwood. The volleyball team hosted two days of quick-hitting action during the Troll Challenge. After Friday evening's final match, the men's and women's basketball teams commemorated the dawn of their new seasons with the College's version of "Midnight Madness." Both of the current Trolls squads played a collection of their alumni predecessors and won by double-digit margins.

The alumni association made certain that Family Weekend guests enjoyed a good start to their Saturday morning by hosting its annual pancake breakfast in the dining hall. Alumni board members served sausages and eggs with the pancakes during the all-you-can-eat breakfast, which preceded a fashion show that featured the latest Trinity paraphernalia. On Saturday night, President Steven Timmermans and his family welcomed visitors to their home for dessert and a backyard bonfire.
