Trinity University celebrated its senior class with the new Twilight at Trinity senior banquet on Thursday, May 14, 2009. The event honored seniors with one last gathering before families start arriving in full for the May 16 commencement. Seniors enjoyed the perfect weather at a setting near the Storch Memorial Library that overlooked San Antonio as the sun set, literally and figuratively for the class of 2009.
The event was sponsored by the Residential Life Office and Alumni Relations. A committee of staff members and seniors from Ambassadors and ASR planned the event. Josh Brack and Wanda Olson from Residential Life made most of the arrangements for the over 225 seniors in attendance. President Brazil, several vice presidents, and some trustees, at a dinner elsewhere on campus for the spring board meeting and commencement, stopped by to visit with the students.
"Twilight" featured a message board for students to send texts (touching and amusing: "I have swine flu and I sneezed on the steak.") to their friends and classmates. The local jazz band St. Vincent and the Grenadines, featuring Michael and Patrick Shay ('03) entertained while students sipped beer and wine and dined on a dinner of steak and salmon prepared by ARAMARK.
