A Grand Slam for Trinity’s Classes of 2021 and 2020

Mar 04, 2021

Commencement is always a joyous occasion—and this year’s May 8 celebration will be a particularly meaningful one for Trinity graduates and their friends and family. We will not only be celebrating the Class of 2021 at an in-person ceremony that will allow loved ones to cheer on their graduates. We will also be honoring our 2020 graduates, who had virtual ceremonies last Spring and Fall because of pandemic-related restrictions on gatherings.

And since these graduates have overcome such unique challenges, we will be waving them home in a unique way, at Ozinga Field in Crestwood, Ill., home of baseball’s Frontier League Windy City Thunderbolts.

“On behalf of the College, I am thrilled that our graduates from 2020 and 2021 will have the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments in-person with guests present,” said Trinity’s President Kurt D. Dykstra.

In order to maintain necessary distancing and allow for the home crowd to attend, Trinity will be hosting two separate ceremonies on the day of Commencement. With this double header format, each graduate will be able to have a limited number of their own fans in attendance.

The 10 a.m. Ceremony.

This ceremony will include all Spring 2021 Traditional Undergraduate graduates.

The 2 p.m. Ceremony.

This ceremony will include:

Spring 2020 Traditional Undergraduate Graduates;

Winter 2020 Traditional Undergraduate Graduates;

All Adult Undergraduate Graduates (Spring 2020, Winter 2020, and Spring 2021); and

All Graduate Program Graduates (Spring 2020, Winter 2020, and Spring 2021)
