FOR FAMILY WEEKEND
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.
