“Competitive engagement and practical value.”

“Professors and peers.”

“The freedom to apply classes from a variety of disciplines toward my degree.”

“Learning how to help others learn (focus on kids, but translates well across ages and disciplines).”

“Hands-on learning.”

“The relationships I developed with my professors, this has been foundational for ministry.”

“The emphasis on leadership development”

If you had it to do over again, would you still attend Trinity?

“Absolutely, the faith centered education is something I would never give up.”

“Although the culture and philosophy at Trinity is necessarily limited to a Christian worldview, some of the classes I took and especially the interactions I had with students and professors, led me to truly reflect on my values and the reasons for them. This ability for introspection, I now believe to be invaluable to who I am as a person and far more important than any job skill.”

“Yes, I loved my experience at Trinity. The friendships I made at Trinity are for a lifetime.The classes, professors and staff helped develop me into the person I am. I learned what it means to live out your faith and be Christ centered not self centered.”
