Tri-State College

Trine University, formerly known as Tri-State University, is a private, non-profit, post-secondary institution located in Angola, Indiana. The school was founded in 1884, and offers degrees in the arts and sciences, business, education and engineering. Trine University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. It operates several satellite campuses across northern and central Indiana, with a campus also in Centreville, Michigan.HistoryTrine was founded in 1884 as Tri-State Normal College, and retained the reference to the "Tri-State" area for more than 120 years — so named because of the school's location in Indiana and its proximity to Michigan and Ohio. In 1906 the school was renamed Tri-State College, and again in 1975 as Tri-State University. In 2008, the school's name was changed to the current Trine University, in honor of alumnus Dr. Ralph Trine. The dropping of the "Tri-State" identifier reflected a desire to brand the school as a nationally competitive private university, not to be confused as being state-funded, or as being associated with businesses or organizations nationwide also using the prevalent "Tri-State" tag. Throughout the 1990s, the university opened several satellite campuses in locations throughout northern and central Indiana.CampusThe main campus covers 450 acres in Angola, Indiana. There is another campus for the College of Graduate and Professional Studies in Angola, as well as other satellite campuses in Mishawaka, Logansport, Avon, Columbus, Warsaw, Fort Wayne in Indiana, as well as Centreville, Michigan.
