Amidst volunteers giving out free popcorn, snow cones, and treats, students wandered through rows of tables covered in posters, fliers, and candy at the Involvement Fair on August 30. The annual event helps new and returning students relax after the first few days of classes and find like-minded people at Trinity.
Each fall student-led groups set up tables to spread the word about the work they do and the fun they have throughout the year, answer questions, and invite sign-ups of new members. Local businesses joined the Fair offering coupons and discounts for students. Over 40 groups were represented this year, over half of those being student clubs and organizations.
Our goal is to have somewhere for each student to feel welcome.

The Student Association hosts the Involvement Fair with the hope of giving students the opportunity to interact with campus groups and the City of Palos Heights.
Student Association Vice President Andy Reidsma ’14 of Wyoming, Michigan, said, “We want to show students what aspects of the community are available to them. There are so many different options and groups. Our goal is to have somewhere for each student to feel welcome.”
