The experience at Trinity College of Florida is life-changing. Whether you’re building friendships late at night in the residence hall, sipping a hot cup of coffee on campus, using your YMCA pass to work out with your roommate, attending a special chapel service, serving in your local church, or traveling for a weekend get-away with one of our student groups, students experience personal and spiritual growth.
Students are highly involved in various aspects of campus activities. Joining a student group or athletic team provides additional opportunity to get involved in campus life. So much of the college experience is social, so we want to empower students to live in an environment that encourages leadership development and social engagement.
Student groups are a great way to get involved on campus. Students are able to get involved, take part of campus life, and join a network of like-minded students. Motivated to make a difference, make friends, or just have fun, our students groups offer a variety of events and fun activities.
Student groups vary each year, but always have one thing in common - to bring students together whether for worship and prayer, or just to have a fun weekend outing. Recent student activities include camping trips, bonfires on campus, a trip to Disney, a missions conference, Tiger Games, and game nights. Get involved on campus by joining a student group!
Consider joining one of the following student groups!
The Student Government Association (SGA) is the student-led organization and the student’s official voice to college administration. SGA exists to provide leadership to the student body of Trinity College of Florida. SGA is involved in building community among the student, staff, and faculty through activities and providing opportunities for students to express their opinions concerning the college.
Students involved in SGA get to plan and organize all student activities and outings. From camping trips to kickball to meeting with the President of the college, being part of SGA allows you to have a voice on campus and be involved!
The Great Commission Missionary Fellowship (GCMF) organizes various student activities and events to educate and inspire others to be involved in world missions. An annual Global Impact Conference, held each fall, brings church leaders, missionaries, community development organizations, and others to the college campus for a time of concentrated recognition of the worldwide task of the church.
GCMF also organizes student mission trips and lunch forums designed to connect students to global evangelism.
Prayer Group is a student lead group that focuses on the spiritual growth of the student body. Students come together twice a week to pray for the college, classmates, staff/faculty members, and world events. Students can email their prayer requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or place them in the student prayer box located in the chapel.
TCF is dedicated not only to academic excellence but also personal and spiritual growth. We believe that the Word of God should stand at the core of all that we do.
Students will encounter the Word of God daily while in classes, in chapel, or even in the dorms. Spiritual emphasis weekends, dorm devotions, mission trips, chapel, and Christian service are just some of the initiatives we take to ensure spiritual growth and maturity. We hope to see our students not only receive an outstanding education, but an experience that will encourage a closer relationship with Jesus.
Chapel is a vital part of building the spiritual community at Trinity College of Florida. Students, faculty, and staff are able to come together for prayer, worship, and teaching.
Chapel offers contemporary worship, testimony and sharing, and solid teaching from the Word of God. With multiple opportunities for student involvement, chapel is a reflection of the exciting college community. Chapel services are held twice throughout each week in Sid Williams Chapel.
The Christian Service program involves weekly participation in a specific ministry. It provides an opportunity for the practical expression of that which has been learned in the classroom. It also gives students opportunities for useful experience, spiritual growth, maturity, and practical skill development. This is your opportunity to take what God is teaching you in the classroom into your church and community and change lives for Christ!
Get involved with your local church by helping with children’s ministry or youth group. If you’re gifted with musical ability or teaching, serve on the worship team or teach a Bible Study or Sunday School class. You can also choose to get involved with a parachurch ministry such as Inter-Varsity, Young Life, or Child Evangelism Fellowship.
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.

Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. (1 Timothy 4:12, NASB)
In order to do this, clearly defined standards and guidelines are necessary. The Trinity College 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. Scriptural standards, which are binding on the entire Christian community, have been taken into consideration in the formation of all guidelines. It is our hope that each student will have a value system based on Scriptural concepts.
