The 4th Annual Student Leadership Expo on Thursday, January 30, exposed Trinity students to a variety of leadership opportunities available on campus. Clubs and committees set up booths around the Grand Lobby to inform students about the many ways they could match their gifts and talents to campus leadership roles.
Troy Schemper, director of student programs, described the event as well-received. “The expo was initially started by a student who gained a position in Student Activities, but who wouldn’t have sought it out if it hadn’t come to her,” Schemper said. “She wanted to make leadership opportunities known to other students who might have been in the same position that she was.”
Walking around the ring of booths, students encountered opportunities such as The Courier – the student newspaper, the Multicultural Committee, Resident Life, and many more. Each one offered students the chance to get involved.
Andy Reidsma ’14, vice president of Student Association, said, “It’s really cool to see all the clubs come together in one place and to see the different ways people use the gifts God has given them.”

The accessibility of the event is what makes students like Reidsma so ready to attend. Events like this give all students the opportunity to practice the leadership skills they learn in the classroom.
