Welcome to Trinity!

A message from the Vice President for Student Affairs

Dr. Karen Gerlach

I am happy to have you join Trinity! As you begin your academic career, you are embarking on an incredible journey. We have a caring staff in Student Affairs who are committed to working with you and encouraging you to take full advantage of the opportunities available to you as a student at Trinity.

We are dedicated to meeting the needs of all students by helping you to access resources to achieve your academic goals.  We encourage you to join one or more of our student organizations. All of them offer opportunities for leadership development, peer support, networking, personal growth and community service. Our campus leaders are involved in Student Government, Athletics, Campus Ministry, Campus Activities Association, Peer Mentoring, and the list goes on.

Explore campus, ask questions, meet faculty and staff and learn all you can about your University. Study hard, make new friends, get involved and have fun. We are here to help in any way we can. We hope you reach all of your goals and realize all your dreams.

See you on campus,
