Alumnae Spotlight
Michelle Calcagno ‘97 recently graduated summa cum laude from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. She has been admitted to attend the University of California, Berkeley where she will pursue an M.S. in Structural Engineering in the fall.  
"Most people are teenagers when they enter college and have to choose a major. I was a 17-year-old student at the University of Illinois–Champaign, and I chose to major in finance. What did I really know about finance? What do most students know about what a lifetime in their chosen major or career path will be like?

Many students, including 17-year-old me, choose a career path based on what they think or what someone told them will be a “good job.” The negative aspects of most professions are not the ones that are emphasized at career fairs. So, unfortunately, many people don’t find out until after beginning their career that their chosen path is not the best fit for them.

My story is a little different."

From "Inside" Trinity
We are so proud to share that Trinity’s senior class had a record-breaking number of monetary college scholarships awarded! Thanks in no small part to College Counselor Katie Granholm, the Class of 2020 was awarded over $33,451,000 in scholarship offers, averaging $312,000 per student!  Katie Granholm tirelessly worked with her Trinity seniors as well as many colleges and universities during this uncertain time, helping ease the stressful college decision-making process. Through her support, she helped students make their best and final decisions regarding schools. This amazing senior class deserves the best sendoff possible!
