New Student Resources

Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Seminary

admissions new student resourcesWe are glad you will soon be joining this community! Newly admitted students are often juggling so many decisions and transitions at once. Whether you are relocating to Columbus or commuting from down the block, we want to help make this arrival as smooth as possible... and we want to make sure you know there is a place for you here!

We want to extend a warm welcome to all of you who are entering Trinity Lutheran Seminary and Bexley Seabury Seminary as new students this fall. We are truly delighted that you have chosen to join this community of faith and learning, and look forward to getting to know you.

Entering students should have received a copy of the schedule for orientation in the mail along with a book to be read before the retreat with the faculty. If you have not received this mailing by early August, please check with us. 

For many of you, this is a time of significant transition. Please know that the prayers of all of us at Trinity and Bexley Seabury are with you during these coming weeks.
