Nearly 400 people attended the annual registration event Blueprints on June 25 and 26. This was the largest Blueprints group in the history of the College. The sunny summer weekend was packed with activities for new students and their families.
Blueprints gives these students an opportunity to connect with their roommates, fellow classmates, and professors.
The festivities began with tours of the Heritage Science Center and the Art and Communication Center followed by a barbeque supper hosted by Provost Liz Rudenga, Ph.D. Parents attended a session on academics and student life, while the students participated in a host of fun activities. Then everyone enjoyed an ice cream social and later gathered for the evening praise and worship service. Students stayed busy well past midnight with a variety of options, including sporting events and games.
Day two began with the faculty-hosted breakfast, giving students and their families a chance to talk with faculty members from their areas of study. While parents attended a session on college finances, students met with faculty members for one-on-one advising.
The Information Expo supplied students and parents with information about campus organizations, and local churches, banks, and businesses. Students were able to visit some model suites in West and South halls before attending sessions about the First Year Experience and community life at Trinity.
