|August / September 2008|
Over 700 community members and friends attended a celebration commemorating our name change to Trine University on Aug. 1. Many activities punctuated the celebration, beginning at 11:30 a.m. with the unveiling of the Trine University entrance signs at the main boulevard entrance.
Trine University will be a connection point for talented students and businesses seeking the best employees at the first annual Trine University Career & Internship Fair Friday, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the University Center. Students can connect with business representatives at company displays and throughout the mall area. Business executives can arrange to interview promising candidates that day after the fair. The registration deadline is Friday, Oct. 10. Those interested can register at www.TrineCareers.org for the 60 available spaces.
Trine summer camps experienced growth and a lot of enthusiasm from children interested in summer learning programs. LEGO Camp at Trine North in Angola nearly doubled the number of campers after its debut last year.
Trine University will see increased enrollment at its main and branch campuses, as well as a larger resident student population when classes begin on Aug. 26 for the main campus and Sept. 2 for the School of Professional Studies sites. While the anticipated new main campus class of 1,340 students, the highest in 31 years, excites Trine’s Vice President for Enrollment Management Scott Goplin, other enrollment numbers are cause for celebration as well. His office projects approximately 930 students, a 14.4 increase over last year’s 810, will live on the Trine campus this fall. Overall Trine University enrollment will be in the 1,725-1,750 range, including branch campuses.
Construction is underway for a new fieldhouse and recreation center to include a 200-meter indoor track, tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts and batting cages. The fieldhouse will connect with Hershey Hall, and will benefit all Trine students.
