Full Circle Moment

We have officially come full circle.

Last week, I had the pleasure of taking our junior class on the annual three-day college tour while fellow colleagues led our sophomore class on their two-day college preview tour. While these trips are always a special way to begin the school year, all would agree that this year brought an extra level of excitement. For the first time in Trinity Hall’s history, we were able to visit our graduates on their college campuses. Between both trips, we were able to see eleven members of our Class of 2017. All were happy, well adjusted, and proud to tell the Trinity Hall sophomores and juniors all that they’ve experienced during their first few weeks of school. Most important, they were all doing well in their classes and felt prepared for the academic rigors of college.

As we begin a new school year, our Class of 2018 is deep into the college application process. I look forward to assisting each of these 41 young women find her ideal college, and I can not wait until each senior’s locker is proudly decorated with the college of her choice. We also begin welcoming colleges to campus this week. So far we have over 90 schools registered to visit throughout the months of September, October, and November. Many are visiting for the second or third time, and several are visiting us for the first time. We have colleges visiting from as close as our local friends at Monmouth University, and as far as Trinity College in Dublin — all eager to meet our next group of impressive young women.

There is never a dull moment at Trinity Hall, but I don’t think we would want it any other way!
