“I was looking for a school to get my credentials as a counselor,” says Marsha, “and Trinity was the only place that didn’t treat me like a number. I explored a lot of universities, but at Trinity, it was a personal experience…the need for mental health counselors is critical. I’ve actually hired quite a few TIU-Florida students, and they represent the school well.”

“Through the integration of faith and learning, you'll find an environment where you have professors who have walked the journey, that continue to take the journey of faith, knowing their Savior, Jesus Christ. They are competent and qualified in their trade, spending time to disciple their students and walk them through the process…That's what I got as a student at TIU-Florida…support, structure, and accountability. It’s a very loving community.”

“Safety is what the classrooms modeled. We could have heated discussions about controversial issues, and the professors would skillfully navigate the diversity of our different Christian traditions. It challenged me and broadened my way of thinking…I’m shocked to see how much I use my degree from Trinity Florida every single week.”
