First-Year Experience: Kurt Delos-Trino’s schedule

As a member of Calvin's Perkins Leadership Fellows program, Kurt is no stranger to responsibility and the motivation it takes to balance academics and other social and athletic activities.

Below is Kurt's schedule for the fall of his freshman year. Check out how he managed to tackle a heavy course load in the sciences, train on Calvin's swimming and diving team and still find time to spend with God through nightly devotions.

Perkins Fellows. I like having a class that helps us learn about John Perkins and the work he has done even after all the suffering he has been through. I love how he turned to God through the good things and the bad things in life.

I think sometimes we need to have study groups to fully understand cells. It was helpful to get other people's perspectives as they keep us in check with what we learned and what we've forgotten.

  • We'd like to introduce to some pretty cool people. They're doing some pretty great things, both at Calvin and beyond.

  • When you choose Calvin, you choose Grand Rapids, too. Thankfully, GR is the kind of place you won't mind spending four years, with more new restaurants, shops and events opening all the time!
