TrollNation Network


They have always been at the heart of what makes Trinity Christian College such a special place. These relationships bind students, alumni, parents, grandparents, community members, friends, and faculty together across generations and physical locations

And now, we are looking to strengthen those relationships even further through the TrollNation Network. When you become part of our network, you can deepen your own ties to this place and make a difference in the lives of current and future students. After all, the world needs all of us, and we can all help each other get ready to make an impact.

TrollNation Network offers a variety of ways to support Trinity, her mission and her vision.  Choose the one that fits you best!  No matter when you graduated from Trinity, where you live now, or where your career path is taking you, we can all make a difference in the lives of students today and in the future.

How can you help?

Prospective students tour campus

Help introduce Trinity to prospective students

Do you remember your high school days, when you were looking for the right college? All the questions you had, the sense of excitement and even being overwhelmed with so many choices? Through the TrollNation Network, we are creating opportunities to connect potential Trolls to our community. If you know a high school student who could thrive here, we can help you introduce them to our campus through our Refer a Student program. If you have the gift of hospitality, you could host an event with a group of prospective students and their parents!  Join the TrollNation Network.
