Expanding Worldview through Interim: Photogalleries


The two-week Interim program Trinity offers each year between semesters has proven to be a successful extension of the learning environment. Locally and abroad, students choose from more than 25 options of special interest classes, trips, and service opportunities.

Far and away

A new overseas course was introduced this year as 19 students, led by Emily Thomassen ’09, instructor of theology, traveled to Israel where they toured the Holy Land, exploring ancient sites and hiking over Israel’s rugged terrain.

Travel abroad to countries like Jamaica, Costa Rica, and England allowed students the opportunity to study different cultures, to serve others, and to gain a new appreciation of the Creation.

Cool classes on campus, too!

A wide variety of on-campus classes was offered, including Chicago’s Role in Contemporary Theatre, Conspiracy Theories, and Rock Climbing, which was available for the first time and employed the new climbing wall in the DeVos Center for initial lessons in technique.
