For the first advisory meeting of the new year, Trinity Hall alumnae were invited to visit our current students via Zoom. Our alumnae graciously took time out of their busy schedules or college breaks to connect with our current students. With five graduating classes, our alumnae are at different stages of their college experience and careers, so they each brought their unique perspective to give students a glimpse into their lives beyond Trinity Hall.
Current students were able to ask the alumnae questions about their personal experience at college, their majors, their schools, their involvement in clubs and organizations on campus, and the college workload. They also inquired about the transition from Trinity Hall to college. Alumnae from the Class of 2017 who have now graduated college discussed their four years at college and their post-graduation plans, such as a job or graduate school. Our alumnae offered advice and wisdom for our students as they continue at Trinity Hall and think about their next steps.
Mrs. Drudy, advisor and theology teacher, had Maggie H. ‘20 visit her advisory. Mrs. Drudy said, “Maggie was thoughtful and articulate and had a great story to tell with good connections to her time here at Trinity Hall. Maggie shared a very sweet comment about not being able to say goodbye to everyone at Trinity Hall because of Covid. She encouraged the girls to treasure those people in each of their classes and the people they just casually talk to in the halls.”
Connecting with our alumnae allows our current students to get a sense of what their future could look like when they enter college. For our seniors, who are currently in the midst of their college application process, our alumnae are great resources, especially when it comes to hearing about their first-hand college experiences. All of our students found it enlightening to hear from young women who once sat at the same desks they do now. We are grateful for our alumnae who are dedicated to connecting with the Trinity Hall community and still make the visit “home”, even if it is virtual!
