Worried about not adjusting, I have acclimated better than I would have ever guessed. I treasure this school! The professors, the students, the activities; I would never transfer. Beautiful campus as well. Greek life is a blast! This school is perfect and I would highly recommend to anyone that is interested in a serious respecting education.

FANTASTIC Appartment-Style Living – One of the greatest things about Trine is the apartment-style dorms! These dorms have suites that can house 4-7 people, and each suite gets 2 or 3 bedrooms (depending on size; you share this room with a roommate - sometimes two roommates), a bathroom, livingroom and dining room. Oh, and did I mention that the living/dining room comes furnished?? If you're lucky enough to live in the Honors Dorms (Moyer), you'll get a fridge, microwave, free laundry, and a balcony thrown in the package too!

However, if normal dorm life is what you're looking for, Trine has that too!

Trine University has an air of classiness, and I am not referring to the actual classes.

People seem to treat the campus with decency and respect.

The University Center is a wonderful place - dining hall, library, school store, radio station, theaters, etc.

Everyone is accommodating and friendly - I see random people in the hallways and they usually make eye contact and smile.

Whenever I ask a question, or ask for help, they go out of their way to help me.

I really love my University!
