All students are encouraged to wear a sport coat for this special event. Dismissal for the day will be at about 10 a.m.

Do you ride the TARC?  Do you do research for your classes?  If the answer to at least one of these questions is yes, you need a Power+Plus card. This Power+Plus card gives you the discounted student TARC rate and works as the Louisville Free Public Library’s library card, giving you access to their vast collection of books and databases, including those pictured here, which we do not have at Trinity. To get one, see Mrs. deGolian in the library or have your advisor send her your name.  Our goal is for everyone to have one.
