Kylie - 02/06/2018

Trinity is an amazing little school with plenty of great opportunities. The community here is genuine, and the professors truly care. Class sizes are small, and students get more one-on-one time with professors, which is great. The academics are tough, but not impossible. We also have an honors program for those interested in an even more rigorous schedule. We are small, but constantly have things happening on campus and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved!

Lauren - 01/31/2018

Trinity is a great place with a very supportive Christian Community. The small campus feel allows students to get one on one attention from their professors. Trinity is a great place to be challenged both in and outside of the classroom.

Chase - 01/31/2018

I believe that Trinity does an excellent job giving students a wholistic experience. The faculty are intentional about putting in extra hours when students need help understanding the material. Faculty and professors are highly concerned for the student's emotional and spiritual health. The school equips students to be ready to engage the world for its benefit in more than just their vocational careers, but in the community and the home as well.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    "Live because of, in light of, and for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ." Back when I was a senior in high school, I did not at all understand the ultimate significance of the Christian Gospel, that I am a depraved and condemned sinner in desperate need of grace, and that God fulfilled my desperate need by sending His Son Jesus Christ to take upon Himself the wrath of judgment that was due to me, and being resurrected that I too may live beyond death. I now understand that the Gospel is not just an important part of Christianity, but the very centerpiece of all of existence. I would tell myself that the Gospel is the purest of motivations for any decision or action, the clearest of philosophies for viewing life, and the most fulfilling of pruposes for living. None compares, and none will bring God more glory and bring you more delight in Him. Upon sinning, return to the Gospel, and find hope and repentance. Upon righteous actions, place your faith in the Gospel, for there is nothing a sinner can contribute to his own salvation, but Jesus's sacrifice is sufficient for salvation.

  5. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The school is a priviate Christian school, and as such it strives to protect its students with student expectations. These expectations include no drinking, no smoking ect. These rules are helpful to young students who are not use to living on thier own, or making choices for themselves. The frustration was that some students found the expectations too restrictive, but the expectations also created a safer enviornment than many other college campuses. If the safety of the campus could have been provided in a way that still allowed more freedom of choice, it would have been better.
