I love this school! The academic focus here is strong. We have amazing faculty (ranked #6 in the Nation by WSJ). Professors are extremely accessible and very willing to help you succeed. There are tons of great activities and groups to join. If you don't find something, you can easily start up a new club. This is the most gorgeous campus. Butterflies are all around and we are next to the lovely historic Brackenridge Park, Japanese Tea Garden and the San Antonio Zoo. In recent years, Tigers have won 4 NCAA team championships and 4 individual track and field national titles. There isn't a huge party scene on campus. But we are 5 minutes from the River Walk and there is always something entertaining to do.

Almost all of my professors have been amazing! Trinity does a great job at finding teachers that care about their students and really know the material they are teaching. One problem I encountered was dealing with a professor that had tenure. He was awful and did not teach his class properly. I felt I was being treated unfairly, yet "there was nothing I could do" because he has tenure. This is a problem at a university like Trinity where i expect to be receiving top education. I think if a professor is not doing their job Trinity should reevaluate their "tenure."

I am a member of one of the sororities and I love it! It gives you a network of connections you can have as friends when you're having a bad day or even help you get jobs or internships. There aren't any Greek houses available, so that's extremely different from most other Greek organizations across the country, but that's because all of the organizations on our campus are local. While not being in a fraternity is detrimental to guys' ability to go to parties, no one in Greek life looks down on those who aren't members. However, some people who don't get bids from the Greek organization they were rushing tend to be upset, with a few people saying it is all a popularity contest. For those who didn't rush, they think Greek life is neither good nor bad, just something to be a part of.
