Why I love Trinity

From my first day on campus as an undergraduate student I found Trinity to be a welcoming place that continually sought to cultivate authentic Christian community. Without sacrificing the pursuit of academic excellence, Trinity is a community fundamentally built upon cooperation, not competition. Trinity is in the business of whole person formation. And for me, being at a school that holistically cares about its students makes all the difference.
