Blessing of the Hands
Chaplain Stephen Nickle performs his annual blessing of the hands with the Health Services staff as they prepare for the new academic year. The Chaplain helps the staff reflect on their roles as healers and celebrate their commitment to student patients. Here, he seems especially determined in blessing Dr. Janna Wilder, whose clinic hours are increasing to 20 hours per week.

Sending your child off to college can be quite emotional, for dads as well
as moms. But you knew that already, didn’t you! There are many sources of
advice for parents as they prepare for and ultimately leave their sons and
daughters at Trinity. This
Today Show segment, featuring an interview with Dr. Michele Borba,
offers great tips for the parents of First Years. Best wishes in this time
of tremendous transition--for you and your child.
Your Student and the Importance of Networking
Will your student know what to do when meeting someone who can help them along their career path?
Career Services is hosting the networking etiquette workshop, “Connecting with High Impact,” with presenter Barbara Greene. The interactive workshop will teach your student how to build relationships with Trinity University alumni and other contacts they make. Networking can lead to information and job leads, often before a formal job description is created or a job is announced. It is a valuable skill to master, and when used appropriately, has lifelong benefits. The workshop will be held Monday, September 15 from 6 - 7 p.m. in the Storch Memorial Building Lobby.
Your student immediately will be able to put this new skill to work during Making Connections, a career-networking event with San Antonio alumni, on Thursday, September 18, from 6 - 8 p.m. in the Skyline Bistro. The goal of Making Connections is to give alumni and students an opportunity to interact with each other and to explore career or graduate school opportunities in various fields of interest.
Your student can benefit from either session independently, but the sessions are the most powerful when taken together. Your student may sign up for one or both of these opportunities on TigerJobs.

ATTENTION: Was your student billed for $1216 for the student health insurance plan?
All students are required to have health insurance. Required proof of personal insurance is provided through an online waiver. If the waiver was not completed before July 1 the student will be enrolled in the student health insurance plan and the premium of $1216 will be added to their University bill. If your student has personal health insurance and you do not wish to purchase the student health insurance plan the waiver must be completed by September 4. Details are available online. Questions may be directed to Health Services 210-999-8111 or firstname.lastname@example.org
