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.

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.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't apply for any financial aid, but my friends have few complaints about the process.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Little attendance to anything but football and squash but our teams are competitive in all sports. Intramural and club sports are a lot of fun.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus and I don't know anyone who does but I get occasional e-mails about off-campus housing opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors and classes are great and most classes are small (I've never been in a class with more than 50 students, and most are between 20-30). The course registration days are extremely stressful. There is lots of work, especially reading, for most majors but the workload is manageable. There is also a rigorous engineering program which is rare for a small liberal arts college.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career services are great. We have alumni visit campus every two weeks or so to provide networking opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus safety does a good job but we're still in a city with a high crime rate so there is occasional trouble on the edges of campus. However, I have never felt unsafe on campus.

Local Area: Trinity has a very strained relationship with Hartford. Locals see students as spoiled while students see locals as dangerous. Be careful at night, don't walk alone, use common sense and the local area will not be an issue. Unfortunately, Hartford has little to offer students besides downtown/Blue Back Square. A nice shopping area in West Hartford is just a 15 minute (free) shuttle ride away

Greek Life: Greek life is big. They are often the centers of action on weekends (thurs-sat). There is a nice mix of exclusive and inclusive frats.

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.
