I am excited that you are looking at Trinity Christian College!
As the Campus Visit Coordinator, I am pleased to offer a personalized visit based on your interests! You can experience Trinity the way you would as a student through an individual visit or the overnight Destination Trinity visit.
All campus visits include a tour of Trinity’s beautiful 130-acre wooded campus led by a current Trinity student and a meeting with an admissions representative. From there, your visit can include what you want to experience most!
Do you want to…
- Meet a coach or a professor?
- Worship with us in chapel?
- Eat in the dining hall?
- Audition for music or theater?
- Talk with someone about how to pay for college?
You can also join us for Destination Trinity, our overnight visit event. This event gives students an in-depth view of life at Trinity, including a stay in a residence hall and an evening in the heart of the city of Chicago with our students and staff.
I can’t wait to set up your personalized visit! Register for an individual visit or Destination Trinity below, or call me directly at 708.239.4833.
