One of the friendliest communities on a college campus
It is a good college if you are Christian. Christian philosophy is present in all courses, so be weary of that if you aren’t. The class sizes are small and it is fairly easy to get into contact with your professors. Educational wise, it’s a pretty good college.
Trinity is a very good school if you're looking to go into nursing, education, or business. Aside from those three majors (which make up a majority of the student population) the academic programs are not fantastic. The professors are extremely welcoming and open if you are in need of help but be prepared to have a large amount of adjuncts, Trinity does not have a very large full time staff.
The food at Trinity is standard cafeteria food, as long as you're not too picky and have a good attitude, the caf will be just fine for you.
The sports scene at Trinity is not great, few teams are super competitive and the student body does not go out of its way to support the teams. As a student athlete I can personally say that it was extremely frustrating to be on easily the strongest program at the school and have maybe 12 people supporting our home games.
Trinity is a very small, intimate campus which is nice when it comes to class sizes and building a community. This is a problem on the weekend however, about 50% of the school's population lives on campus and of that small number of students, most go home on the weekends so campus is extremely quiet. Of those that stay, most will be found consuming their body weight in alcohol. Trinity, especially among student athletes, has an alcohol problem that is overlooked by faculty.
Overall, if you are looking to be a nurse or a teacher I highly recommend this school for you. Especially if you live near campus.
There is a smaller, more intimate setting. There seems to be significantly more personal attention here, than at other schools I have experienced. Most of the professors are really dedicated to their students success. Besides the professors, there are many student resources available, to the point that it makes easy to achieve success.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Trinity Christian College is 70%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If i was a high school senior, i would try really hard to improve my GPA. It ended a little low, and any little bit helps in terms of finacial aid. I would also like to go back and do better on the ACT, if i had done better i would have recieved more financial aid. I think that i would also tell myself to just relax, i was very nervous about college when in high school. I didnt really enjoy transition, and it didnt help my first semster at school.
I love my school. There is much to do all the time, and things that will always keep you busy if you so choose. This is a very community-based campus.
The worst thing about school is the fact that it cost so much money. However, any school is going to cost you money.
Entering into Trinity Christian College, I wish I knew about the work-load. The work-load here at this college is a heavy load. There is always some work to do pertaining to whatever major that you have. I wish my previous family members who attended this college would have told me about the work-load and how open the professors are at this campus. On my first-day of attending Trinity Christain college I was caught off guard by how open, warm and welcoming the students and staff of this college were; it was very inviting.
Trinity Christian College is made up of mostly white students. In my opinion, if an African American is looking for a school in which he or she can easily find others of the same background; this may not be the best school of choice.
Overall, I would say the most frustrating thing about Trinity Christian College are the expenses. Every year, things on Campus become more and more expensive. This ranges from the meals in the cafeteria, to the items in the vending machine, to (more importantly) living on campus itself. I don't expect college to be cheap, but due to the rising expenses (the college tuition which was raised by $1000), education in general is becoming less and less affordable.
My classmates at Trintiy Christian are here in order to help shape the future of America.
The best thing about my school is the size. I always attended high schools with a large population so Trinity is a nice change of size. It is easier to get to know people and the enviroment seems alot less anxious. Professors are also able to get to know their students easier, which makes it nice for the students who are seeking help from their professors.
a christian centered education
The Christian atmosphere makes it a different atmosphere compared to most universities and colleges.
Students who want to attend a small college that is Christ centered should attend here. The campus is very small, but it is near Chicago so you can go downtown to experience things that you would not usually be able to experience while attending college. Since it is a small campus, you will get to know many of the other studnets and the professors. They really care about you and want to help you out. Since it is a Christian college, there is an emphasis on how we can live our lives and use our careers to glorify God.
The friendly atmosphere and the most awesomist people you will ever meet
Other majors I cannot speak for. I can only speak for Communication Arts classes, Social Work classes, and Business classes. I transferred in with an Associates Degree -- so some general education classes are beyond my knowledge and experience. Speaking of my education, I am going to TCC for Communication Arts with a minor in English.
Now, teachers do get to know you by name. Because the small student-to-teacher ration allows this, you can also get to know your teachers, too. Class participation happens to be common place; in Foundations of Human Communication, class participation gets you to new places that you would otherwise not have gone to. As Dr. Mattson commented one time, independent thinking happens in community.
The Communication Arts (Comm. Arts) people have friendly and helpful personalities. They got the wisdom, the teaching skills, and the ability for sustained reflection -- so as to pass what they know on to you, to guide us all and focus us on the common topic we all talk about in a given class period(s). What does this exactly mean? They know what they are doing. They know what you need. And what you need happens to be a quality education.
The education I am earning at TCC happens to be a mixture of geared towards a job and learning for its own sake. I do not believe that this dichotomy is true, at least at TCC. It's more of a sliding scale. Happening to be a sliding scale, students should expect to get a good education in Communications. They will be taught how to speak, how to write, how to speak persuasively, how to speak with wisdom and eloquence, and how to write -- clearly, without "lard" (prepositional phrases and passive verbs, which muddles the perspicuity of sentences).
To summarize, academics at TCC challenge your thinking, challenge how you feel about subjects/topics, and challenges preconceived notions you hold of reality.
Overall, TCC holds a high place in my mind. I have a high opinion of TCC for several reasons. First, the staff, teachers, faculty, and students genuinely care. What may come across as uncaring personalities at larger universities probably in reality happens to be a limit of time teachers have for students. Compared to larger universities, TCC only has, at most, 25 students per class. A lower student to teacher ratio translates into more quality time, I believe. Secondly, I feel this school happens to be just right for me. For you, you may thrive in a large university! You may like that large campus, with all those people. I do not know about larger universities -- but at TCC you are not merely a number. You are a name. Third, the teachers have connections. Therefore, finding internship opportunities doesn't have to be an impossible thing.
However, no school does not have their shortcomings. No school is "perfect". Perfection arguably happens to be a sort of an impossible ideal. Settle for "good", not simply "perfect". The biggest problem happens to be the proverbial "Christian Bubble". The Bubble keeps students from exploring life. To keep one from exploring life deprives one of those essential experiences that causes one to grow and gain independance. TCC combats this by hosting nights-in-the-city, in Chicago -- since Chi-town is nearby. Midway Airport happens to be twenty minutes from TCC. Get to Midway, park, and you can take the Orange Line into Chicago.
