Welcome Home, Tri-State and Trine Alumni!
Homecoming has been described as finding your way to the place you call home. It means connecting with friends of yesteryear and cherishing the memories you hold so dear. Whether you enjoyed summers on the lakes, celebrating football victories, watching movies at the Brokaw or late-night study sessions in your dorm room, we hope you find your way home to your alma mater this fall.
Campus may have changed considerably for some of you. After visiting campus, many alumni have said it’s not the campus they remember, but it’s a place they want to be a part of and support. Thanks to alumni and friends, after all this time, we have maintained our heart.
We made monumental leaps as we headed into the 21st century, expanding our campus to include the old Angola Christian Church soon to be home of the Furth Center for Performing Arts, a place where many of you may have turned your tassels. This past year we also purchased the old Lakeshore Depot. We collaborated with community members to renovate the 100-year-old historical landmark and transform it into The Depot Grill, a restaurant that focuses on sustainability and farm-to-fork meals. This place held special meaning for our alumni, dating back to the late 19th century.
We hope you can celebrate with us this year. You impacted this university -and your fellow students, faculty and staff- in meaningful ways. You are a part of our history, and we hope you’ll continue to be part of our future.
Here’s to finding your way home.
Dr. and Mrs. Earl D. Brooks II
