This spring, Trinity will put on Much Ado about Nothing, one of William Shakespeare’s beloved comedies. Auditions will be held on Tuesday, December 10, in the ATO Chapel from 6:45 to 8:15 pm. If you cannot attend that audition, you may come to the Chapel at 5:30 on Wednesday, December 11. If you cannot make either audition time, contact Kristin Lindholm before December 10 by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To prepare for the auditions, you can pick up a copy of monologues and scenes in the Faculty Services Office in McLennan (across the hall from the Dean’s Office) between 9:00 and 4:00 Monday through Friday or request a copy from Kristin Lindholm via email. You do not need to memorize the audition material, but do work on characterization so you show how you can interpret the lines. If you have questions about the play or the audition process, please call Kristin Lindholm at x7169 or email her at email@example.com.
The play will be presented on Friday, March 28, at 7:30 and on Saturday, March 29, at 2:00 and 7:30.
All residents must check-out of the residence halls 24 hours after their last final but no later than 10 AM on Friday December 20th, 2013.
If you have any questions please contact your hall’s Residence Director.
On Wednesday, December 4 at noon, Dr. Averbeck will be presenting his recent research on Genesis 1 and 2 at the Rodine Cafe. Join us as we hear about not only his findings, but also what lead him to this topic. Dr. Tully will moderate this event and we will have copies of Dr. Averbeck’s book for sale. They would make excellent Christmas gifts!
Several local and global fair trade vendors will be visiting Trinity International University on December 5 as a part of TIU’s first ever Fair Trade Gift Market.
Open to the public, the Fair Trade Gift Market is an opportunity for TIU to partner with fair trade organizations—many of which are from the Chicagoland area—and help showcase and sell their products. Among the more than 15 vendors appearing at the market, World Vision, Ten Thousand Villages, and Global Handmade Hope will all be present.
The market also provides local consumers an opportunity to finish their holiday shopping while supporting organizations who pursue a fair global economy through their business. With a wide variety of available products including jewelry, clothing, coffee and decor, the Fair Trade Gift Market offers something for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
In addition to shopping at the market, attendees can visit workshops that discuss fair trade and its impact on the local and global economy.
Director of College Activities Heather Cordero is organizing the event along with Trinity’s Community Partnerships Cabinet. She hopes that the event increases awareness of the impact of conscious consumerism both in the community and on Trinity’s campus.
The Fair Trade Gift Market coincides with Trinity’s annual Santa Lucia Festival, which celebrates the school’s historical roots by participating in and promoting Christian service, both locally and internationally. Though the Fair Trade Gift Market is a new addition to the festivities, it falls within a long-standing tradition of providing Trinity students and staff with opportunities to serve in the community during the holiday season.
The Fair Trade Gift Market will be held in the Waybright Student Center on Thursday, December 5, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Additional information can be found at tiu.edu/fairtrade. Any additional questions can be directed to Heather Cordero via email or by calling (847) 317-7071.
