3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The buildings are pretty old. Some are kinda gross, but they are all very spacious, close to classes, and within close proximity to food and other residences.

Greek Life: i love our greek community on campus. all great life is local and there is no greek life. it is very easy to get into greek life and if you're not in it you can still be just as involved and a part of the social scene.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I wish athletics were more popular at my school. The sporting events are fun to attend, but not much of the University students attend them. The athletic facilities are pretty gross and old.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The community at Trinity University is very tight nit, almost everyone is weird in at least some way. It would be almost impossible to not find your niche or be involved in at least one club on campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's what you make of it. If you have a bunch of friends and want to drink and smoke at campus you can. If you want to go to a club/bar and have ID's theres a fair amount of places to go, and Trinity kids are especially out in full force on thursdays (affectionately called thursbays) otherwise, they're pretty routinely frat parties which, if you make an effort to meet people, shouldn't be too difficult to get into.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Most courses are difficult but you'll actually leave the course having learned and grown as an individual.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: It's more diverse then most schools, but it's still someone white dominate.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on your building it can range in quality, but even being in the "worst" dorm for my freshmen year, it's still way nicer then all of my other friends at their respective schools, in that it's significantly larger. (For reference my friends who's rooms I've seen are at UPenn, Tulane, and Gettysburg)

Athletics: It's there, the Swim and Soccer teams are pretty good, the others are meh.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's not a large part of Trinity, but it's where a lot of the social scene is based out of. That said, not everyone's into that, and even if you are but don't want to join, actually befriending Greek members and really knowing them goes a long way. Club Sports however provide a lot of the same benefits of Greek Life.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's like any large city, there are dangerous parts and safe parts. Trinity not in a particularly dangerous part of the city so it's fairly safe. That said, off campus if you're not careful, you could find yourself in a more dangerous part of town.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's definitely a more nerdy school, and part of that means that it is very much academically focused. That said, if thats not necessarily your crowd, there are more outgoing crowds that while still maintaining some level of nerdiness, are more "socially developed".

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm majoring in CS and Trinity not only gives you a nice broad education to allow you to really be able to handle anything thrown at you in the field, it also allows you to focus on more specific areas of interest, like AI or DataStructures, or Cryptography so in that regard it is a very comprehensive education. Otherwise, CS majors already have the advantage of leaving college knowing there is more jobs then CS majors, but in addition to that, San Antonio is the Cyber defense capital of the country, and I believe by extension the World. This means if thats an interest of yours, you could potentially find a Job either for the US military, the NSA, or with one of the many different Trinity startups in San Antonio.

Overall Experience: I've loved almost everything at this school. Class sizes are small and the professors truly dedicate time to each student. The campus is beautiful and bright.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It's a very prestigious school but I don't think it gave any effort in making sure I was ready for a career once I graduated.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel safe and at home at Trinity.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Housing has improved with renovations. Some are far better than others..

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: It's difficult to become social without joining Greek life.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I loved attending this school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I was never really involved with sports/athletics.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety here is very important. I had a friend who would call the university police when she was out late studying and they would give her a ride back to her dorm because she didn't want to walk all the way back by herself at night.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The quality of the courses are great. The class sizes are small and there is a wide variety of courses offered.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from Trinity is highly valued. There is a very large percentage job placement.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: We have great dorm rooms. They are super spacious and my closest class is only five minutes walking distance. It is nice getting to live with everyone. It is a very community centered environment.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not part of social sorority, but I am part of a co-ed honor fraternity. We don't have official "Greek Housing", but many organizations have houses off campus where they host parties. Greek life isn't super cliquey here. Everyone interacts with each other. Sports teams and clubs are another great way to meet people if you don't want to join a Greek organization. I've met a lot of people through the dance team I am on.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students that come to Trinity find a niche and have a wonderful four years at the University. The experience can be as exciting or as mundane as you make it, but no matter what you do outside the classroom, the academic standards never fall. You will find that there is a lot of work to do, but the education you get makes it all worthwhile. It is really important to put yourself out there to benefit from the Trinity community, because they offer so many opportunities for you to find your niche. 

Students on every campus are going to find something to complain about. At Trinity, it’s the common complaints that make everyone laugh and complain some more, but no one ever actually takes measures to change things. Why? Because when it comes down to it, the people that come to Trinity enjoy the four or five years that they spend here and wind up happy that they worked hard and gave up sleep for an educational experience that prepares them for the future. No graduate will make the mistake of thinking that at Trinity they received a greater understanding of the diversity of culture that exists all over the world, even though they might have to study that in an undergraduate classroom. However, they will know that they received a first-rate education and the memories that came from four years of being a part of a university that gave them the opportunity to learn as much as they had the creativity to pursue.
