CAMPUS TRADITIONS

What makes life at Trinity fun? Well, one or two things . . . like turning our library into a golf course. Or attending athletic games. Or taking part in a musical or play. Or an explosive paint battle on the campus lawn. When you schedule a visit to campus, ask some students you meet about these traditions. They’ll probably have a lot of stories to tell!

Trinity Campus Traditions

STUDENT LEADERSHIP GROUPS

Chapel Cabinet. The Chapel Cabinet serves the student body by planning engaging worship services. This pastorally motivated group of students seeks to model Christ-centered community by organizing diverse expressions of worship for the whole student body.

College Union. College Union (CU) serves the Trinity student body by providing events and activities that entertain, energize, and add excitement to Trinity’s campus.

Men Under God (MUG) recognizes that “iron sharpens iron” and provides an opportunity for Trinity men to be shaped by the character of God and by the accountability and council of friendships. MUG meets weekly to share food together, talk with leaders in the church and on campus, and speak into each other’s lives.

Student Government Association. Trinity’s Student Government Association (SGA) represents student opinion to the faculty and administration and provides services and activities for the student body and provides excellent leadership of the student body.
