JUNE 18-19, 2021

Trinity Christian College welcomes incoming freshmen students and their families to Blueprints, our registration weekend. Blueprints is a wonderful opportunity to meet other students, faculty, and staff. Incoming freshmen will experience campus life, sleep overnight in the residence halls, sign up for classes, and begin friendships with other new students that will last a lifetime.

Be sure to get a taste of all aspects of the college experience during Blueprints. Spend time arranging class schedules, meeting with faculty advisors, and enjoying the wide range of planned activities.
