Now that finals are over and the spring semester is weeks away, we are taking a minute to look back at the fall semester and the fun that students had in between all the studying, interning, and test taking.
In addition to regularly scheduled events hosted by campus clubs and organizations, Trinity’s Student Activities plans lots of ways for students to enjoy college life.
Two big events this past fall included TrollMadness and Fall Fest.
TrollMadness, hosted by TrollNation, coaches, and student athletes, is an annual event that introduces the women’s and men’s basketball teams. This year, more than 200 students filled seats of the DeVos Gymnasium during Family Weekend for inter-squad scrimmages, a 3-point shooting contest, a dunk contest, and contests for fans. It’s a great way to get the community excited about the upcoming sports season.
2013 marked the inaugural year for Fall Fest where more than 130 students enjoyed a hay ride around campus and the community, 3-legged races, bean bag games, and s'mores and apple cider.
Other fall Student Activities-hosted outings provided students with ways to enjoy the cultural amenities of Chicago, including ice skating in the city and experiencing the lighting of Michigan Avenue.
Students who love to dance had lots of opportunities thanks to the Swing Dance Club’s weekly sessions in the Fireside Room and the history club’s Halloween celebration. Students also sampled the arts at the Social Justice Club Art Raid, improv comedy performances, the fall play and student-directed one acts, and Seerveld Gallery exhibits.
Bowling, movie nights, and concerts made for a full calendar.
