My favorite part of Trinity is the unique community we have a TIU. The people here are genuine - which is really important to me!

Academics

Academics at Trinity is very important, and we have a lot of different academic programs, including our honors program. The staff and faculty are extremely helpful and care about their students. Our class sizes vary - I have had classes with sizes from 6 up to 40, but most classes are under 40 students. The professor has more time to devote to teach student and I have close relationships with a few of my professors. We have many different majors and classes here - one of the downsides of a small school is how many classes are offered and when they are offered - but in my experience, the staff, professors, and advisors all are very helpful and are willing to help wherever is necessary.

College Life

Although we are a small school, there are constantly things happening on campus. From Bible studies to leadership groups to campus-wide events, there is never a dull moment. We have many different leadership groups on campus for students to get involved in, and although there is no Greek life here, our leadership groups still help students grow and learn in similar ways. One of the leadership groups is specifically for putting on events for students - which helps provide the sense of community that we have. Our campus safety is great - we have security on duty to help with everything from protecting campus to helping students that have locked themselves out of their cars. The Bannockburn Police Station is also near campus, and we often have police officers patrolling around campus. Our athletic programs also help contribute to the community atmosphere - students often go and support the TIU teams and games can be quite exciting. Overall, TIU is a wonderful school where relationships with Jesus and others are carefully cultivated alongside getting a great education!

Overall

My experience at Trinity far exceeded my expectations. The small student body gives students the opportunity to know professors more personally, get involved in student leadership, and experience a diversity of cultures. Trinity does an excellent job of providing students with a holistic education: academically, physically, and spiritually. The core Christian values that Trinity boasts of on their website are lived out by faculty and much of the student body.

Academics

The academics at this school are definitely better in the more popular majors such as exercise science, business, biblical studies or graphic design. However, whereas the intensity of academics here at Trinity are about average, I do think that students get the dime ... Professors are intentional about connecting with students and putting in extra hours for them to succeed in understanding the material. Thus, I think that an equipping education can be found at Trinity.

College Life

The social atmosphere at Trinity is amazing! Upperclassmen are intentional about connecting with the incoming class, lots of opportunities to get involved are present on campus, and the student environment is lively. I have never felt unsafe on campus. The College Union group on campus plans weekly events for students to participate in for free such as Paint Wars, capture the flag, and game nights. In addition to College Union, different clubs and groups plan forming events such as Bible studies or exciting activities like dances.

Overall

Trinity is a great place with a very supportive Christian Community. The small campus feel allows students to get one on one attention from their professors. Trinity is a great place to be challenged both in and outside of the classroom. I am on the softball team and I really enjoy the experience of being on a team. There are many events that happen on campus. I love when there are game nights and movie nights.

Academics

The small school ensures that students will get one on one attention. All of my professors have been extremely personable and willing to answer any of my questions. In addition, there are many opportunities to be challenged academically. The honors program is one of many ways to be challenged academically. Trinity's classes take an abundance of effort; however, the rigorous workload is part of the well rounded, faith-integrated education that one receives at TIU.

College Life

There are so many opportunities to get involved on campus. There are constantly activities and events that help students get plugged into the community. I personally feel extremely safe on campus. There is 24-hour security and the student body respects one another's personal belongings. The sporting events are well attended by students, faculty, and community members. The NAIA sports conference that TIU is in constantly has a high level of competition. On the weekend, many students hang out in the student union, take trips to the city, or attend events and activities offered on campus. In addition, many students find local churches to get involved in.

Overall

Trinity is a great school. Small class sizes enable professors to get to know you well and help you if you are having difficulty. I highly recommend visiting the school and staying overnight. Being on campus communicates a completely different feel from what you learn about it online.

Academics

The classes are solid. Professors are very open to helping you if you have any problems. The professors are also very smart and good at what they do.

College Life

The community at this school is amazing. It is very diverse which enables students to grow in their cultural experiences and interactions.

Overall

Trinity has been an absolutely phenomenal experience for me! The community has surrounded and supported me in a holistic manner. Academically, I am learning, being pushed and stretched, and I am an actual person to each of my professors. The professors care about what I am learning but also about my whole life, how I am applying my learning, and how I am doing in all areas of life. The staff community has also supported me and opened doors to me so I can step into leadership positions on this campus and participate in lots of events. Lastly, the community of peers has been the most wonderful part as I have made life-long friends who care for me well, which means embracing the joys and the trials of life. Overall, Trinity has been a place of learning and growth for me, and I am so thankful for my experiences here.

Academics

Our academics are wonderful. I am a Christian Ministries major with a concentration in Counseling and Social Service, and I am also completing the Practical Leadership minor. So, I take a variety of courses in multiple departments, and each one has been a good experience. The average class size is 20 students, which is nice because it provides the opportunity for all students to get involved in conversation and to have the ability to ask questions. I am challenged in my classes and equipped to do well in these classes; Trinity wants me to succeed and do as well as I can. Trinity also emphasizes putting our learning into application, so I do not just study for testing purposes but for real life learning. Lastly, I participate in the Honors program which has given me the opportunities to dig deeper into my area of interest. The academic life offers lots of opportunities for students.

College Life

The college life at Trinity is phenomenal. It is a supporting community where each person finds their niche and place in the community. We feel exceptionally safe, we are involved in supporting our peers by going to athletic, arts, and other events, and we have lots of student groups that provide good ways to connect with the community at Trinity and in the local area.

Overall

Trinity is great! I love the friendships that I have made not only with the girls on my floor, but also with my professors and others around campus. Some of my most memorable experiences are some of my classes and hanging out with my roommate. If you are thinking about Trinity, you should definitely visit! The admissions office is great and super helpful in answering any questions you might have! I love being known and cared for in my college community.

Academics

Trinity has strong academic programs including a 3-year option, an honors program, several dual degree programs, and accelerated masters degrees. The professors are amazing and truly know their subjects. Several have published their own textbooks, articles, and have been editors in other publications. The workload is definitely manageable and your adviser will work with you to make sure that you are taking all of the classes you need to take and staying on track without wearing yourself too thin. The average class size is about 20 student, with some gen eds being a bit bigger and many of your upper level classes being smaller. There is a huge benefit to this small class size in that you know everyone in class with you, there is more discussion, your professor knows you well, and your opinions and answers are heard.

College Life

Trinity has a strong student leadership program. From freshman year all the way through senior year, you can be involved in initiating events, caring for students, and promoting academics on campus. Campus is very safe and feels very much like its own community that truly encompasses all age groups. The athletic teams support each other and build great community. The coaches are amazing mentors and leaders in the community.

Overall

Trinity International University has been such a great blessing in my life. Getting to know people who are very different from me has been amazing. I have also enjoyed the Christ-centered atmosphere because I believe it is very important to put God first. Classes in my major have been very interesting and I know that what I have learned will help me in the future. Furthermore, TIU does a great job at going beyond academics and making campus life important as well.

Academics

The classes at Trinity are very diverse and helpful for each major. As you move further in to your major, classes get harder but they also become more interesting because you get the feel for what you are studying. Class sizes are never too big which is helpful in order to have discussions and get to know your class mates well. Furthermore, I have found it very helpful that my professors are always willing to meet with students outside of class as a resource.

College Life

Getting involved in the community at Trinity is a great way to meet different people and get involved. It is easy to find something to get involved in because there are all sorts of clubs and organizations. We also have a lot of events, so even if someone is not involved in anything they can still have a great time!

Trinity's location is one of my favorite things about the school. I love being able to shoot into downtown Chicago for a quick adventure or studying at one of the many coffee shops in the area.

I love the atmosphere here at Trinity. I felt right at home the minute I stepped on campus. I have made life-long friendships here and the faculty has helped me to figure out what I want to do in my career after I graduate.

Academics

The class sizes are all around 20 students, which makes it really easy for the professors to get to know us well and help us when we need it. Our professors all really care about us and take into account that we are involved in things such as sports, student group and part-time jobs.

College Life

There is a great social atmosphere here at Trinity. Most students know each other, and function in a family-like manner. There's a good amount of on-campus and off-campus events to keep students busy and we are also a short drive or train ride to downtown Chicago which is always busy. Our school is very involved in athletics, which is a great way for our students to bond. I also feel very safe on our campus. We are located in a very safe residential area.
