The TIU community meets you where you are and helps get you to the next place that God has for you. I came into my college experience with no idea what I wanted to study. Through relationships with friends; classroom experiences; required field education hours; and the mentoring, investment, and patience of faculty members I discovered my passion for youth ministry. Not only did I find an academic and vocational focus, but I learned skills and life lessons that have helped me to continue to live out my personal relationship with Christ.

I love the community of people here. Transferring to TIU Junior year, I was unsure of how easy it would be to make friends and feel connected. Right away, I was welcomed, I was included, I was home. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced and I felt a sense of belonging right away. Even though I was here for only two years, I graduated with my best friends for life and I credit that to the incredible people here at TIU.
From professors, to athletic events, to all the extracurriculars -- my experience at TIU was great! I loved the ability to have a well-rounded and diverse college experience in a great community. I grew in my faith and my academics while making lifelong friendships. There aren’t many places where you can attend seminary classes while in college and then go to a football game or into the city over the weekend. Plus traveling to 20 different countries through Trinity sponsored mission trips, band tours, and a study abroad program was incredible!
TIU changed my life. The professors, the friends I made and the faculty all impacted my life in a positive way. TIU is a place where your professors and the faculty are invested in every single student. TIU offered me many opportunities to grow in my character through short-term mission’s trips, student ministry opportunities and mentoring. It is the place where I began to understand the depth of God's love for me.
TIU has a wonderful atmosphere of Christian community! We are small enough to have faculty and staff who are really able to invest in the lives of students here. It is a blessing to get to see students grow spiritually and then go out and influence the world we live in.
As a student whose family was 700 miles away, Trinity easily became my second family. Its strong sense of community provided me with opportunities to grow in ways I had never been challenged in before. I loved being surrounded by people from all different backgrounds, and being encouraged to learn from them. I came away from Trinity with a greater understanding of how to not only seek the kingdom of God, but advance it in every aspect of life.
I love the strong sense of community on campus, everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I also love the overall dedication and heart for seeking God's direction and furthering Christ's Kingdom here on earth.
I love TIU because of the vast richness it has brought to my life. From an excellent education to the leadership development to the communities, each has added something specific to my life. I've been able to be in leadership opportunities getting real, hands-on experience and learning what it means to have those responsibilities. I've also been incredibly blessed by the people at TIU, building relationships that I wouldn't trade for the world. It is an absolute privilege to be part of a university that desires to glorify Christ and spread the Gospel in all they do.
