College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not had a personal experience with living off-campus since Trinity requires students to live on campus for three years, but from what I have seen of the surrounding area and heard from seniors, there are many bad options amongst a few good ones.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining experience is wonderful because there are many options within a short distance. It is possible to both indulge and eat healthy. Off-campus also gives students the opportunity to explore new cuisines.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I feel that Trinity's administration is accessible and open to hearing from students, which makes it easier to communicate with them. Unfortunately, they often make decisions that negatively impact the students. Overall, they are average in terms of strictness and focus on making sure that student's are safe.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are held almost every weekend and allows students to come together, but is not necessarily a positive experience because of excessive drinking and dangerous situations.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was able to use the GI Bill, which meant that the process was a little bit different from other students. For me, this process went smoothly.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining hall can have some good options, but while eating there I have often received moldy bread and bugs in the food, but I do enjoy eating in The Pod and Einstein's. It would be nice if we had more options on campus that way we had more flexibility.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: A few of the dorms are really clean and spacious, but most have many problems. They are old and decrepit on the outside. It is what you make of it and the family atmosphere, for the most part makes up for it.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: great if you're an athlete. sucks if you aren't

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Anything is better than the dorms

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's amazing if you have the $$$$$$$$$

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They lure you in with the promise of $$$

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: Don't eat here if you have a sensitive stomach

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The students are what make this school awful

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most people end up at the same couple of apartment complexes, but there are options, and I've never heard any severely negative reviews.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: San Antonio is the 9th biggest city in the United States. Yeah, there's more Mexican food here than anything else, but you will definitely be able to find a good representative of whatever you happen to like.

College Junior

Administration: I really haven't had much interaction with administration.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I don't feel like I've ever received enough for what I bring to the school, but hey, it's college. They do this to everyone.

College Junior

Party Scene: I really don't party, ever. People seem to enjoy the ones they go to, but I just don't care.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: Limited options. Everything is unhealthy. They run out of food during peak hours. It's expensive. There's no alternative. Taco taco is decent doe.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Yes yes, we all hate that we have to live on campus for three years, and on top of that, are forced to purchase a meal plan for food that really sucks. The dorms are really great though, and getting to class is fairly convenient.

4 College Senior

Majors: I intend to enter the Masters of Arts in Teaching program which includes a student-teaching internship for 2/3 of the school year. It's intensive and a lot of work, but it has the best reputation for making educators out of students. For other majors, it isn't that difficult to find internships. Professors are great resources for networking.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: The less you have in your savings, the more aid you're likely to get. I never feel like I get enough, but that isn't my school's fault. Trinity gives A LOT of financial aid; I've never met anyone here who pays full price.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I wish there were more student discounts, but there is at least one restaurant for almost every nationality in San Antonio, so there are a ton of options to choose from. You just have to know where to go.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The preventative measures put in place can only go so far. There are always going to be people who make poor decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. Sexual assault has been a pretty hot topic on campus for most of my time here at Trinity, like it has a lot of colleges and universities. I feel very safe on campus, but I don't go to parties where I would have little control over what I would be drinking. I think that's part of the problem people who don't feel safe face.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There isn't that much school spirit for sports, but there are always fans in the stands for big home games. Since Trinity is Division III, athletes don't get paid to play here, so they're very dedicated athletes to work as hard as they do and not get anything out of it except the love of their sports. Soccer is probably the most widely loved sport here, since we have a lot of talented international students on the girls' and boys' teams.

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.
