Campus a frenzy of activity
Fall Frenzy visit day draws students, families
More prospective students and their families than last year attended Trine University’s Fall Frenzy visit day Saturday, Sept. 6, to learn about the university’s possibilities for their lives.
In all, around 150 students and supporters explored the newest construction on the revitalized campus, heard presentations by faculty members and student service organizations, and investigated their opportunities for athletic and social interaction as Trine students.
Tours of the campus, with its University Center, golf course apartments, and football field with new artificial turf generated excitement, as did Trine University’s defeat of Manchester College in its season-opener, said Tyler Benner, visit day coordinator for the Office of Admission.
Students interested in majors ranging from mathematics education to engineering to sport management took in the informative panels and overviews of four of Trine’s schools of study. Those wishing to learn more about Trine’s dual five-year bachelor of science and master of engineering degrees also showed a strong presence. About half expressed an interest in sports involvement, and made contact with Trine athletic representatives in the University Center, Benner said.
“Lots of them were impressed with the construction and our commitment to constantly improving and changing the campus. They also remarked about the campus cleanliness,” he said. “They enjoyed the student life, and the Blue Crew student athletic support group drew them to the football game. “
