4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is fun for those who choose to participate.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not many students live off campus, and most who do live close to campus. Fraternity houses are counted as off-campus housing.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Trinity is a party school, but that doesn't mean there's pressure to party for those who don't want to. It's a fun atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options, especially for delivery. It depends on your tastes, but it's pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Not always transparent about the issues taking place on campus, but overall effective and trustworthy.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Trinity meets financial need-- there are some great merit scholarships available but they aren't publicized much and there is no separate application for them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not amazing, but it is possible to eat healthy.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshmen are able to get singles. All housing is excellent. Many students live in quads with individual bedrooms or 8 person suites.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek parties are the best.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Natty champs year after year. Which Trinity teams will win this year?

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: In a city, you have options

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Trinity has the best partying in the nescac and I would put it up against big universities in the country. Trinity kids know how to party. The frat scene is always a great time and the ladies seem to get better looking every year. There is always something to do every night of the week at frats, house parties, and bars. Trinity kids love to party.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is fine but gets old after a year of eating virtually the same thing all the time

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great! The longwalk and Jarvis is great to live at. Cresant Street townhouses are brand new and are the best dorms i've ever seen on a college campus

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Its expensive, a long walk in the cold and not very safe

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Goldbergs or a pizza place are pretty much the only options

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you enjoy partying its easy to find something every day of the week. Its very cliquey to get into frats sometimes

3 College Sophomore

Administration: In recent years they have made a few decisions (mainly about greek life) with out consulting students.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Its always the same stuff (sandwiches), vegetarian options aren't very good, Smoothies are awsome

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing has gotten better over the years. Most dorms are really nice, like Jarvis and the town houses.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Many different majors. There are no 'easy majors' at Trinity, but science and engineering majors are the most difficult (organic chemistry is hell).

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Not very many minority/international students. I am white but have made friends with many minority and international students. They are very friendly but, unfortunately, tend to hang out with other minorities/internationals.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: very attractive, hardworking, and friendly girls for the most part.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Very few good places. Pizza is terrible. Only late night options are domino's, papa johns and campus pizza. Do try piolin, it's a great peruvian restaurant that delivers.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Some classes have required attendance, especially social science courses. Drugs/alcohol-be especially careful smoking in dorms as campus safety does not take smoke alarm violations lightly. R.A.'s are hit and miss, they are either extremely strict or don't care at all.

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.
