The first semester at college was definitely difficult. Being an international student, I experienced cultural shock and felt homesick throughout the first few weeks. Also, I was not emotionally prepared for the amount of work I was required to do. However, I soon became used to being extremely busy, got new friends, got involved in a spiritual youth group on campus, and got to love my classes. One of my favorite experiences at Trinity has been to be able to constantly meet with my professors and create personal relationships with each one of them. Without lying, all of them have been extremely caring and have helped me decide which courses to take each semester, have explained me any doubts I have had before or after any exam, and have already offered me multiple research opportunities for the next years. Being part of a small college like Trinity and being taught by professors that know me by name and not solely by face is just really something wonderfully unique that all students should value and take into consideration when applying to college. However, every rose has its thorn, and Trinity is not the exception. The international student population at Trinity is not well distributed. One just needs to enter Mather (Trinity's cafeteria) to be able to observe one big table full of Asian students and another one full of African students. But what about those students from Latin America, Europe or Oceania? There are surely some of them, but they are just so few that it's almost impossible for them to create a knit community of their own. I am not going to lie... I have had some tough moments with this social and cultural isolation. Nonetheless, this experience has offered me the opportunity to interact more with American students and learn from their lifestyle and perspectives on various subjects. This last point, along with its strong academics and small student-teacher ratio, makes up the reason I would choose Trinity again if I could do it all over.

The school is full of the same type of people for the most part. The diverse (small group) population of students socialize with them selves.
