Mosaic Gathering with Dr. Peter Cha

Join us for Mosaic Gathering on September 10, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:20 p.m. in Melton Hall (Waybright Center), featuring Dr. Peter Cha!

Entrusted with the Gospel, Trinity Mosaic Ministries aim to advance the ministry of reconciliation and renewal by (1) equipping students, (2) Developing and distributing resources, and (3) Creating new collaborations and networks.

In the Mosaic Gathering, we explore the biblical vision of reconciliation through prayer, biblical reflections, cultural and social analysis, and networking with like-minded leaders.

Trinity Community Invited to Battle of Bannockburn Festival

The Village of Bannockburn invites Trinity students, staff, and faculty to participate in the Battle of Bannockburn Festival on Sunday, September 7, from noon to 4 pm.

This year, the festival celebrates the 700th anniversary of the battle fought in Bannockburn, Scotland, in 1314. In that important battle, Robert the Bruce defeated King Edward II, taking a significant step in gaining the Scots freedom from the English crown.

The festival is held in the Village Open Space at 2245 Telegraph Road. A highlight of the afternoon’s activities will be a battle tournament with medieval re-enactors fighting in traditional armor. Trinity History Professor Steve Fratt, a member of the local SCA barony, will be one of the medieval warriors. There will also be exhibit tents with displays of life in medieval times, including cooking, livestock, storytelling, and music.

The Chicago Highlanders will perform traditional music on bagpipes and drums, and there will be a bonfire to end the afternoon.

Parking at the event is extremely limited, so Trinity will be providing free shuttle rides to and from the event between 11 am and 5 pm, running approximately every 20 minutes. (It takes about 5 minutes to get there.) You can catch the shuttle on campus at either the Trinity commuter parking lot or at the Security Gate.

Trinity College Deadlines to Add/Drop College Classes

The last day to add a fall semester class without a fee is Wednesday, September 3. This is also the last day to enroll for the fall semester. This deadline applies to the traditional undergraduate program of Trinity College on the Deerfield campus only.

The September 3 deadline applies to all class adds, including internships, guided studies, and independent studies. If you plan to complete an internship, guided study or independent study during the fall semester but have not yet finalized arrangements by submitting the appropriate paperwork, register using the temporary registration code TR 099 by September 3.

Between September 4 and September 10, there is a final grace period to add or withdraw from classes; students will be assessed a fee for add/drops in this period. After September 10, college students will not be permitted to add a semester-long or Quad A class except under extraordinary circumstances and with a dean’s approval.

September 10 is also the final day for students to withdraw from a class without record. After September 10, a student may still drop a semester class through November 7 (Quad A classes by September 19), but the class will remain in the student’s academic history (transcript), which will list a “W” (withdrawal); a W has no impact on the GPA.

Students should always consult their faculty advisor before adding or dropping a class. Dropping classes may have an impact on financial aid, athletic eligibility, and degree completion, so it is critical that students seek advice first, prior to dropping a class.

If you have questions, consult your faculty advisor or one of the Associate Deans (Drs. Wrobbel & Hedges).
