1 College Freshman

Diversity: There has been progress on campus but this campus still is Predominately White. This past April and Asian Student was told she did not look like her name by a security guard and told racial stereotypes. People are always on Yik Yak saying racist things about Black students saying, "they're too loud," and "black lives don't matter,". Last year girls wrote to me saying that when I talk about Black women it offends them. No one wants to work with me in class or they look at me as if I am beneath them and my professors see it yet they don't say anything. I have had multiple encounters with racist security officers. No one really wants to talk to you. When we have meetings about diversity not that many people show up. I can say that more and more people are showing up and things are reaching a better point and it takes time, but I do not think my experience as a minority will ever be what I want it to be. It might be better for the future minorities but I don't see any drastic changes for me. Also, a girl who is white that does hang out with Black people was called "ghetto" because she is always with us.

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.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a lot of different people from different ethnic backgrounds.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: For the most part, the campus is compassionate towards minorities. In some cases, there is more tension. However for the most part Trinity is accepting.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: To the school's credit, they have been pushing very seriously for a more and more diverse set of students, faculty, and staff. In a school that has been historically conservative, this creates a certain tension among some members, but that tension is honestly good for everyone involved. The campus was once mainly white folk that came from the community within which the school resides, but it's seeing a greater measure of different people from all over the place. It's quite cool being able to interact with people from Afghanistan, South Korea, Ghana, South Africa, China, Japan, or any other place in the United States. Sharing space, mind, and beliefs in a place that is explicitly Christian allows for a greater awareness of the world that is often lacking in private institutions that profess a faith.
