College Sophomore

Academics: I'm not really familiar with famous alumni from Trinity.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: No complaints here. Wireless can be a pain sometimes.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Strictness isn't awful and as a member of the Residential life program, I think the policies are appropriate.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't really experienced that hassle yet, but from what I can tell its not too awful.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: People are going to do it. It's inevitable on a college campus.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Not really a night-life person so I'm not all that aware.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I'm never really all that concerned about my safety on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: San Antonio is a wonderful place to live, and I will be sad if I have to leave it.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Trinity gives me more money than I could imagine. However, it is because of the crazy cost.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is easy as there are so many restaurants within the area that we always go to. Chains, local restaurants, ethnic cuisine, we've got it all.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are so many different types of people on this campus, and I have gotten to know so much about them.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Getting off-campus can be a little difficult if you don't have a car. However, there is plenty of public transportation options and shuttles that the campus provides.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some buildings are better than others, but definitely the best dorms I've seen on a college campus.

3 College Freshman

Majors: They are radically changing the business curriculum and making it more difficult but I am generally happy because I will graduate before the terrible changes come into play.

5 College Freshman

Majors: You can easily apply to any major and the faculty are willing to help you with anything

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The facilities will soon be very nice at Trinity. They are renovating basically everything except for the dorms right now.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Trinity is very unique in the way that the faculty are available and the students are diverse

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not many people use drugs, but everyone drinks unless you're socially awkward.

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is absolutely disgusting and they are constantly getting food violations for what they make. Meals are the same every day and the staff are extremely rude and don't speak any English. Get the smallest meal plan and avoid Mabee at all cost.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are great but sadly they are being forced to teach new curriculum which is confusing for both the faculty and students and hurts our grades.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Network can be spotty and wifi is sometimes shut off for "maintenance" during important study times.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Very good academics and good alumni network for the size of the school. Our academics are arguable the same or better than Rice or Southwestern.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: San Antonio is very unsafe and very ugly. I would pick Austin or Houston a thousand times over this city. The roads here have not been improved for at least 30 years.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Average parking, not always guaranteed a spot. Parking permits are around $100 per year

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: We have the term "Trinity Goggles" because when you have to put them on in order to see that the girls here are good looking. A big lot of them are the feminist type so good luck trying to find someone to date. Of course there are some very pretty ones but most are not. There is a reason why guys here take trips to UT-Austin all the time.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Stephany Weaver
View all previous student authors

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.
