The passion they have for their subjects influences me every day. They inspire me to work harder and show me the beauty in all areas of study. Their enthusiasm for learning is contagious, and I am grateful for every single one of them!”Trinity Student

Describe a moment of significant intellectual awakening in your life.
I had the opportunity to spend the final semester of my junior year at St. Olaf College traveling throughout Australia on an Environmental Studies program. Being so far away from everything familiar gave me incredible opportunities to grow in self-knowledge and independence, as well as exposure to completely new organisms and environments. It was one thing to learn that species adapt to their specific environment. To be able to witness that firsthand and begin to discover patterns took this adventure to a whole new level. My appreciation and understanding of the beauty and organization of God’s creation had only just begun!
