Mulder, who hails from Fox Lake, Wisconsin, said, “I was drawn to Trinity by the welcoming atmosphere, the access to Chicago, and the wonderful things that my older brothers [Charlie ’04 and Grant ’08] had to say about their own experiences at Trinity.” Since 2007, she has been immersed in Trinity, becoming involved in campus activities by planning dorm events on the Tibstra Hall Council, joining the Social Work Student Organization, attending Outcry, serving the community during LovePalos, and participating in the 30-Hour Famine.
Financial aid and scholarships were a huge part of the reason why Mulder was able to attend Trinity. “My admissions counselor worked to get me all of the financial aid that I was eligible for,” she explains. “I feel blessed that donors opened their hearts and supported funding for financial aid and scholarships so that I could come to Trinity. The Trinity Fund has given me the opportunity to be a part of campus activities where I have met so many of my friends. It has also provided financial assistance, which makes college more affordable for me, as well as for every other Trinity student.”
“Trinity has made an unforgettable impact on me,” Mulder said. “I have learned so much in the classroom from professors who genuinely care about me as a person and as a future social worker. I have also grown because of the friendships and relationships I have built that have challenged me to work hard, enjoy life, and exhibit Christ in the things that I do. I have been blessed with so many wonderful friends that I hope to keep for the rest of my life. I feel like I have been changed by the relationships that I have built and the people that I have met.”
