4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our team spirit is great. Everyone is familiar with when teams are playing and a lot of trolls try to cheer their players on. While not everyone goes, the news of how the games go spreads quickly with a weekly email sent to all students. Therefore, every student is in the loop.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The residence hall community is the best part of living on campus. Depending on which hall-South,West,Tibstra or Alumni- You have your own perks. For South, The only perk is there is no Air conditioning. With West, Because there is Air conditioning it may seem closed off and less friendly. With Tibstra, there are apartments but those are really hard to get. Alumni is the nicest dorm and has the most space. the only thing is that if you're by the window, your bed will be cold.

Transportation: There is a shuttle and public transportation. The shuttle is the best option for it is two dollars round trip. The only downside is that it only works for traveling within the limits of Palos Heights.

Campus Strictness: Basically, as long as you obey the rules that are given, the security guards are one of the friendliest people you'll ever meet for some of them are your classmates. However, if those rules aren't upheld then you have another story. I would look for a review of someone who has a car and deals with parking on this one for I don't have a car.

Weather: Being in Illinois, it depends on the time of year and what dorm you are in. During the summer, hope that you're not in South hall for there is no air conditioning. For winter, you have to deal with cold weather and if lucky you might get a snow day. The cold this year has gotten to a -30 with windchill. So, bring plenty of sweaters, jeans and warm gloves or mittens.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: For admission, my advice is talking about other schools that you've either applied to or have been accepted to. If you've been accepted elsewhere, you'll get accepted there too. The process isn't out of the ordinary. If anything, it's filling out the application, providing a transcript and that's it. If you're auditioning for Concert choir or Honor's Ensemble, Do your audition in person unless the director tells you specifically it needs to be recorded. It allows for the Director to put a name to your face and get to know you better.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I personally love it. The campus is well laid out and the professors are all enjoyable. The one thing that is unique about the program is that it is a Liberal Arts college. Therefore, our Gen. Ed. requirements include courses from all disciplines, not just the ones that you need for your major. This allows for your education to be well rounded.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: For Music Ed, I must say that it is tougher than the average Education major. Not only do you have all the Education hoops to go through but you also have the major of Music to go along with it. Therefore, while the classes and program are great, the workload is pretty high. I'm a sophomore and every semester so far has been at least 18 credits. This semester is 19. Granted, most of the credits are ensembles and private lessons. Still, it is a lot of work but the pay off is great.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Having your own computer is good but there are computers on campus as well. While a fair number are older, they still work. The printing is good, but you'll want to go to the library. The in dorm printers most often are out of paper. As for network and wireless, it is alright but sometimes it can be incredibly slow especially on nights of registration. Also sometimes the internet connection isn't that great.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The main thing that sets Trinity apart from other colleges, other than its mascot, is the strong sense of community. Here, not only are we friends, we're family. Of course, having a Troll as our mascot instead of an Eagle also sets us apart. He contributes to the Troll Bridge legend on Campus. Overall, we have a great respect for each other and our faculty cares about each student individually.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: On campus, alcohol isn't allowed. Neither are drugs. So, overall it is safe but we have fun.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus. The guards are seen, but they are friendly. They enforce but they also are nice to talk with as you walk by.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Usually, I don't go off campus that much. Most places are decent but there are fast food chains too. Overall, it depends on whether you're going with your family or if you're going with a group of friends.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love this school. It is in a relatively safe neighborhood and there is plenty to do. While there is a lot of activity on campus, there is also a lot that can be done off campus including going into Downtown Chicago via the nearby train station.

2 College Junior

Computers: Our specific wifi can be a little slow sometimes but its typically no too bad that you cant get things done.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our Security seems to have one job. Give everyone a parking ticket. Although they do make nightly rounds to find any suspicious activity. Most people have mixed groups that they hang out with and we are located in a safer neighborhood so no one really worries.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: You can find what ever group you are looking for. There are always those groups with the reputations and you can somewhat tell who fits into which party.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: We have two options for food on campus. The dining hall and the diner open to the public as well. They usually do a very good job at varying the options offered for meals.

3 College Junior

Facilities: We just got a new fitness center and it is amazing! There is plenty of space for pickup games of any type around campus. Sand volleyball is very popular. The dances are traditional and located all over campus. There are always things going on in the dorm lobbies and campus events are usually very good.

2 College Junior

Transportation: We have public transportation but from what Ive heard you have to call it and set up times. And sometimes where you need to go is out of there jurisdiction. Its easier to just find a friends car or bike.

3 College Junior

Diversity: We have plenty of students to make up diversity. Although we are a small liberal arts college we have people from all over with all different backgrounds.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Dont really know a lot about it but everyone Ive talked to has liked living off campus although they say their social life has decreased.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Depending on who you talk to, you will get a different response. This also depends on the situation.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live you get a different experience in regards to the age of the building the other people in the building/hall, the set of of the suites and the traditional social atmosphere

4 College Junior

Academics: The mass of possible majors here is very convenient. Professors do their best to work out your schedule to fit you and your interests.
