3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus but many others have faced security issues, thefts, and harassment from several members of the local community.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are mostly fair in grading. Many professors in the sciences and classical studies courses stand out to me in their teaching style and enthusiasm for the subject matter.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing options are great! The town houses make great but require students to pay extra to live in.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Fraternities are a great part of Trinity College. Most brothers I meet are nice.

2 College Junior

Athletics: As a track and field athlette, the indoor field house is awfiul.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: As a student, I love Trinity for all the academic opportunities I have. As an athlete, I am a little disappointed with Trintiy's training facilities for track and field.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not much to say about it. Average. The health center is great, even better when you get sucker punched by some a-hole who walks onto campus looking to start trouble

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Like most kids I was really excited for college and the academic opportunities it would present. Coming here, less so.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since everyone who graduates from here is a money sucking scum bag, the business connections are EXCELLENT!!!

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are horrible. Everything is outdated and old, the newest building on campus besides the townhouses was built in the mid 1960's. Every year at move in day you can see the parent's shock and disappointment with the amenities. Disgraceful.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a must to be anything at the school. Even the so called "loser" fraternities (looking at you Kappa Sig) consider themselves to be in higher standing than everyone else. There really aren't spaces for parties besides going to the frat houses, and they are very exclusive about who they let in. It is very much a culture of exclusion.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Nobody cares, it is shameful. Squash is the biggest thing on campus, but nobody pays any attention

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very snobbish student body, the surrounding area is atrocious.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Initiatives to prevent sexual assault are just becoming more popular. A lot of fraternities are partaking and it's comforting and I can see a difference in the awareness of all students on campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are so passionate and knowledgable. Always willing to help. I've learned so much, and professors are very accommodating and have a consistent open door policy.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Those in the economics and science departments have a better chance of being successful. Less attention paid to other majors, especially the performing and studio arts. Still, there are opportunities out there if you reach out to your advisor and the career center. There are lots of chances to get involved with alumni networking.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The townhouses are the exception to the rest of the residencies - they are a total luxury

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Good parties mostly good people

2 College Junior

Athletics: No one cares really except for the athletes

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's easy to get distracted by the party scene and let it take a away from your academic affairs. A lot of students end up with slightly concerning drug using habits.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Trinity is located in the heart of Hartford and is an open campus, but that being said I have never felt really unsafe on campus, and there are always plenty of campus safety around if you need anything. The Hartford Police also have a station right next to Trinity and do a great job protecting the edges of campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers at this school are challenging but helpful. The class sizes are small so its easy to build a relationship with your professors. There are a huge variety of courses offered each semester.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from a competitive liberal arts school is an impressive degree. Especially the Economics major and science majors are knows for its rigor. The alumni network is also huge.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a freshman and I have a way larger room than any of my friends at other schools. A lot of freshman have quads where each of them have their own rooms, and that is just the freshman housing. The upperclassman housing is very nice especially with the additions of the townhouses.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Everyone seems to experience a similarly hard freshman year; Trinity is not perfect. Once you accept that, you can begin settling down, grow comfortable, and view this little oasis in the middle of Hartford as a home for the next four years. Quite a few Trinity students can’t wait for the beginning of September just to get back to school. Another experience everyone else seems to have in common at Trinity is a fierce loyalty to their alma mater—the love for the Bantam is only one example.

Well, now that you’re hip to all the facts and opinions about Trinity College, you without a doubt have a head start on all the other incoming freshmen. Whether you decide to spend the next four years of your life at Trinity or choose another college, learn to accept the college or university that you selected. Don’t be quick to give up or transfer. If half of the students who felt frustrated initially chose to leave Trinity, they never would have discovered what a great place it really is.
