TCF Campus Life

Connect as a community of believers where each person finds encouragement, friendship, and a greater purpose. Whether through joining one of our student groups, enjoying some friendly competition in athletics, or participating in Christian service, relationships are formed and strengthened.

Join a Student Group

Whether your focus is to make a difference, make friends, or have fun, joining a student group is a great way to get involved on campus. Our groups offer a variety of events and activities. Groups vary each year but always have one thing in common–bringing like-minded students together.  

Participate in Christian Service

There is no substitute for authentic transformation as students network and develop their ministry skills through our various hands-on Christian Service opportunities. Trinity’s Christian Service program involves weekly participation in a specific ministry and provides an opportunity to give practical expression to what you are learning in the classroom.

Experience Spiritual Growth

Encounter biblical truth at the foundation of your classes, chapel services, dorm life, athletics, and relationships. Form friendships as you participate in spiritual emphasis weekends, dorm devotions, mission trips, and Christian service. Attending Chapel is a vital part of our spiritual community here at TCF. Chapel services are held twice a week in the Sid Williams Chapel.

Answers to Questions about Student Life

Are there student standards and guidelines to follow?

Our goal is not to have a lot of rules, but to protect the scriptural standards that have become synonymous with Trinity College of Florida. Our Student Life Handbook serves as the source for information regarding the college’s standards and guidelines. These guidelines are designed to regulate the activities of the student body so that the basic rights of all are protected. Like everything else we do, we wrote our handbook based on biblical principles for fostering a Christian community. It is our hope that each student will have a value system based on Scriptural concepts. View the Student Handbook PDF

Are students required to participate in the Christian Service program?

A minimum of 20 hours of service a semester is required for all full-time students. Each ministry selection must be approved by the Dean of Students and should begin by the fourth Friday of the semester.
Some of our current students are involved in their local church serving in children’s ministry, singing on the worship team, or assisting youth leaders. Others teach a Bible Study or Sunday School class. There is also participation in local ministries such as Inter-Varsity, Young Life, or Child Evangelism Fellowship.

Are there chapel services for undergraduate students?

Yes! Chapel is a vital part of building our spiritual community. Students, faculty, and staff are able to come together for prayer, worship, and teaching. Contemporary worship, testimony and sharing, and solid teaching from the Word of God provide multiple opportunities for student involvement and are a reflection of who we are as a community. Chapel services are held twice throughout each week in Sid Williams Chapel.

Students will also encounter the Word of God daily in classes and in the dorms. Spiritual emphasis weekends, dorm devotions, mission trips, and Christian service are other initiatives we take to ensure spiritual growth and maturity.

You’ll receive more than an outstanding education at TCF. You’ll gain an experience that will encourage you to have a closer relationship with Jesus.
