Student Life

Beyond the academics and schoolwork of a TEDS degree program are the everyday activities of community life. There are leisurely walks around campus with friends, shared conversations over coffee at the Fresh Cafe, movie nights, volleyball matches in the sandpit and inspiring worship in Chapel.

Student Life at TEDS

Beyond the academics and schoolwork of a TEDS degree program are the everyday activities of community life. There is something special about being part of the community at TEDS

Culture & Diversity

Our students are from a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and other countries. But one thing that unites them is their sense of calling to fulfill God’s redemptive mission in the world. One of the ways that happens is when students seek to understand the world around them by sharing themselves with those from around the world. More about student diversity >>

Spiritual Life

We pay special attention to developing the practice of godliness that will prepare you for whatever the Lord may have in store–not only while you are at Trinity, but wherever God’s purposes lead. In addition to the richness of your studies, local church community, and friendships here at Trinity, we have some wonderful opportunities to aid your spiritual formation and growth! More about spiritual life at TEDS >>

Student Groups

Our students have formed a number of organizations centered around common interests and goals. You and your family’s time at TEDS can be enriched by participating in any of these groups or in the events they sponsor during the year. More about student groups >>

Families at TEDS

TEDS programs don’t just draw students to campus, often families come with them on their academic journey. We believe that campus life can positively affect the lives of children and spouses as well as students. The friendships and community built here while living on campus provide strong foundations for a lifetime of ministry connections and partnerships. More about Families on Campus >>
