Christian Life Profile

Exceptional classroom and hands-on education
Your future begins with the next four years. Trinity develops students into leaders with extraordinary faculty who mentor you and give you an education that meets your individual goals. Our commitment to excellence in the classroom, practical experience outside of class, and our location near Chicago create an education that is one of a kind.

Chicago connects to global learning
Located less than 25 miles from campus, students have access to the global city of Chicago. The nation’s third-largest city provides a limitless resource for culture, art, theater, and sports. Through internships, field experience, and volunteer opportunities, Trinity students find ways to transform their passions into actions that will make a difference in the world. The Chicago Semester immerses students in urban living and internships that become résumé highlights.

Maximum opportunities for financial aid
First-time freshmen who indicated they would be living on campus were offered an average of $16,400 in total scholarships and grants for the 2016–2017 academic year.
• Those who filed a FAFSA were awarded an average of $16,800 in total scholarships and grants.
• More than 98% of traditional undergraduate students receive financial aid.
• 19% of 2016 graduates who began at Trinity as freshmen graduated debt free.

Bringing college to life
Student activities, NAIA athletics, communal worship, study breaks in the Caf...hundreds of opportunities exist to meet fellow students from other majors as well as make a best friend for life. Students become part of favorite campus traditions like the Troll-led OPUS parade, but they also become part of changing the lives of others.
