Fellow TCSA Members Reunite for a Night
The Triton College Student Association (TCSA) is an integral part of Triton College, as they serve as the voice of the students who are just as involved and concerned about all aspects of the institution as the college’s staff and faculty. Each year, they become a close-knit group as they come together to shape the constitution of Triton.
On December 3, 2013, alumni of TCSA shared stories and welcomed each other with a warm embrace at a TCSA Alumni Reunion held on campus. The reunion welcomed back club members from as far back as 1975.
Alumni were challenged with Triton trivia and encouraged to add their information to the alumni database to receive updates on Triton’s yearlong 50th Anniversary celebration, beginning in August 2014 and will include an Alumni Athletics Day in September 2014 and a Golden Anniversary Alumni Celebration in February 2015.
“I’ve had the pleasure of hearing about so many wonderful experiences you’ve had on campus and as part of TCSA,” said Triton College President Dr. Patricia Granados to the audience. “It’s great to know that our institution has impacted so many lives.
“All of you are true supporters of Triton College because as former students, you understand the value in what Triton offers.”
Alum Eric Schiffert recalled producing multiple student events and spearheading with the club to implement emergency kiosk systems around campus during his time with TCSA in 1995. “I enjoyed my time with TCSA. I feel like we really made a difference,” he said.
Enza Raineri, who served on the Student Senate in 1981-1982, had not been back on Triton’s campus until that night. “I appreciate how Triton has expanded its offerings over the years,” she said. “Students are fortunate to have Triton in the area.”
Raineri was encouraged by Triton College Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs Doug Olson to attend, also a TCSA alum. Olson served as TCSA president from 1982-1983.
“TCSA has made a significant difference in the lives of those involved with the organization as well as the impact it has had on the campus community,” he said. “This event allows for TCSA alumni to reconnect and strengthen long-term rewarding relationships with each other and the institution.”
