5 College Junior

Academics: The school provides rigorous academics but they definitely prepare you for whats to come. The school is very respected and this can be seen when applying for jobs or internships. The common curriculum program because it is a liberal arts school is very interesting.

5 College Junior

Academics: Academics are above the standard. Great school, great professors.

3 College Junior

Athletics: So-So, D3 Schools have sub-par sports programs. The facilities are also subpar.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Mexican Food at its best.

2 College Junior

Guys & Girls: If you are into eye-candy do not come to Trinity University.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Some older buildings, but a state of the art Science and Engineering building. Green campus, decent athletic facility.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: San Antonio is a great city, especially for College Students. Go Spurs Go. Not as cool as Austin though, but you can definitely have fun.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Party Scene here is worse than my High School, but that is due to the size of the University. I am also native to San-Antonio, so I do not find it as fun as the students that do not live in the area.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The university has strict policies and control over our Greek life so its not as vibrant as larger universities.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into the Accounting Department was easy due to my grades and effort, but I'm sure it is easy to get in. The most important criteria is GPA. It may not be impossible to get into the school, but once you are in you must work to continue to remain successful in the academic field.

4 College Junior

Majors: Honestly, this is my first semester enrolled in the Accounting Program so I am not completely sure yet. The head of the department seems to comprehensive.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The quality of courses are great, and I believe that is why Trinity University is such a valued school in San Antonio and nation-wide. The professors are always open and available, and this is a perk for students. The class sizes are relatively small 30 kids max, and for the most part I believe the education you are receiving is top-notch.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you plan to stay in Texas, or around the San Antonio area the degree is equivalent to that of Harvard. Great school, and it definitely has successful alumni. I think employers really respect what Trinity University means, and this is why the university provides very successful people to the real world.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Other than the convenience, I personally do not enjoy the dorm system. I hate the fact that Trinity makes you stay on campus for 3 years, but I also enjoy it at the same time. I know it has definitely helped my grades and I have met people that I otherwise would not have met!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are several dining options off-campus, and most of them are really good. I think the only problem would be transportation.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I got to meet so many different people, and it was one of the things that made my first year at Trinity such a great experience.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: It's not a huge part of campus life, but it is relatively fun to attend the sporting events.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The clubs aren't always easy to get to, and sometimes there is difficulty to find parking. To get to parties, you generally just have to know the right people.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: If you're not used to the public transportation, like I am, it's scary to use at first. But it becomes your best friend when you don't have your own car, and it's efficient.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I haven't had much experience with the police at school, but I've heard they're very friendly and helpful.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Whether students do or do not drink is not a big deal. I didn't notice it happening too much, but I knew it would happen.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's usually pretty nice. Occasionally, there will be rainy days. The winter brings lots of cold days, but the weather is generally good.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Everything is generally pretty easy to register for, and advisors and professors are always willing to help.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know of the selection because students are expected to live on campus for three years.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The liberal arts lets us choose a variety of classes, so we can all explore before we decide on a major.

Most students that come to Trinity find a niche and have a wonderful four years at the University. The experience can be as exciting or as mundane as you make it, but no matter what you do outside the classroom, the academic standards never fall. You will find that there is a lot of work to do, but the education you get makes it all worthwhile. It is really important to put yourself out there to benefit from the Trinity community, because they offer so many opportunities for you to find your niche. 

Students on every campus are going to find something to complain about. At Trinity, it’s the common complaints that make everyone laugh and complain some more, but no one ever actually takes measures to change things. Why? Because when it comes down to it, the people that come to Trinity enjoy the four or five years that they spend here and wind up happy that they worked hard and gave up sleep for an educational experience that prepares them for the future. No graduate will make the mistake of thinking that at Trinity they received a greater understanding of the diversity of culture that exists all over the world, even though they might have to study that in an undergraduate classroom. However, they will know that they received a first-rate education and the memories that came from four years of being a part of a university that gave them the opportunity to learn as much as they had the creativity to pursue.
