“If you asked me back in 1971 how I ended up at Trinity, my answer would have been completely different from the answer I am able to give you today,” said Arthur Bishop ’75.
“I remember being so impressed with the state-of-the-art Mitchell Memorial gym,” said Arthur. “Back then I would have told you I ended up at Trinity because of basketball. Today I can tell you that I attended Trinity Christian College as a result of God’s divine plan.”
Arthur played basketball for the College for four years. More important, he discovered an early call on his heart to help others, a call that led him to major in sociology.
The cornerstone of Erie Neighborhood House in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood reads: “To the glory of God and the service of his children.” Emily Hunter ’11, a sociology major while at Trinity, spent her last semester navigating the narrow hallways of the building that houses an organization that has served the immigrant populations of Chicago for over 100 years.
Hunter’s role during her Chicago Semester internship with the organization focused on immigration services, helping people with such tasks as applying for citizenship.
