This is an exciting time for Trine Athletics!
Being a member of the nation´s oldest collegiate athletic conference, the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA), seeing more than 600 student athletes participate in 24 varsity sports, and having some of the finest facilities to field exciting NCAA Division III competitive events is what makes Trine athletes know their college experience will be something they will remember the rest of their lives. The addition of men's and women's ice hockey programs make this an exciting time in the history of our athletic programs. We invite you to be a part of Thunder history.
Trine University prides itself on strong academic programs. As we begin to look at our 132nd year in existence as a university, the athletic department works closely with and understands the needs of our student athletes in order for them to meet the demands necessary to achieve the academic excellence needed to prepare for work and future challenges.
Our facilities continue to meet the expansion and growth of our athletic programs with the recent completion of our new field house "The ARC" – Keith E. Busse Athletic and Recreation Center, as well as the completion of Ryan Tennis Center. New construction will begin in the coming months on Thunder Ice Arena as well as a new athletic and event center.
Competition continues on our new turf field, and practice areas were recently upgraded and improved. The on–campus 18 hole championship golf course and 3500 seat gymnasium have allowed us to host several collegiate tournaments. Zollner Golf Course and Trine athletics also served as the host of the 2012 NCAA Women′s National Golf Championship.
It is with great pride that we invite you to experience Trine athletics and to extend to you an open invitation to contact us. Better yet – come visit us at "Thunder Park" on the campus of Trine University and experience the THUNDER!
