4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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."

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, and I know Trinity is working hard at promoting safety. But due to recent national issues I think Trinity should continue to work on making the campus even more "safe" and bring awareness to serious issues going on not only on campus but around the world.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms at trinity in comparison to other university's dorms are amazing. They are all nice, but they range quite a lot even though everyone is "paying the same price." For example, Freshman dorms can range from updated brand new dorms like Calvert, Miller, and Whitt-winn to old, dirty, and out-of-date dorms like "Beze and Herndon." Yet the students placed in the old dorms are paying the same amount as students in newer dorms. I don't think this is the best system.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in a sorority or fraternity, but I hear good things about the ones on campus. I have many friends in greek life, but I also have many that are not. It is a fun side activity at trinity.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The facilities are very up-to-date and well kept. Athletics are a fun side activity at Trinity. Teams including "varsity" and club are popular, but the school does not focus on sports.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Trinity University is amazing. I just completed my freshman year, and I am excited to be going back in the fall. One thing that makes my school unique is it's size; it is small. But this allows for a close community with students and faculty. All my professors know my name. I am not just a number.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Fantastic campus, and fantastic staff, and facilities. The courses engage you as a student and require that you put in to get out, and professor's genuinely try to make what you're doing and saying a part of the course.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career services department is 2nd to none. It is phenomenal. Just absolutely over the top helpful and assisting.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: People care for people here, and they genuinely look after one another.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: One of the best in the country, you definitely receive an incredibly high value for what you're doing.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Very sparse, there are some good groups and others that can be so stressful.

4 College Junior

Athletics: About to have new 20 million dollar facilities, and will be an incredible upgrade!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The students and the environment are incredible.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've only been at Trinity for a year, but I have never heard of any crime or sexual assault on campus. At the beginning of the year they require everyone to take classes on preventing sexual assault and what to do in case it happens. Since I know everyone so well, I don't feel like I have to worry about someone stealing anything, so I feel comfortable leaving my things around for a little while if I need to.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes and professors are amazing! I came to Trinity with a lot of hours from concurrent and dual-enrollment credit, so I am one of the first people in my class to register for the next semester, so registering is usually pretty easy for me, but I have several friends who run into trouble with being able to get the classes at the time they want.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Because Trinity is a small school, job prospects are amazing and you really get to build a huge network of professionals in the area who might connect you to further positions. Career services isn't too helpful, but they can direct you to people who can help. However, career prospects are greatest not because of specific programs, but just simply getting to know the people around you on a personal basis.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is definitely good for the first year, as it helps people meet others, but only some of the dorms are nice (Witt Winn and North), and the older you are, the worse the housing seems to get (Thomas). However, they are relatively large compared to most public universities and they provide good social atmospheres and Witt Winn and Prassel have pretty good places to use as study spots too.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: 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.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Trinity is a division 3 school, so sports are far less important to us than academics. However, the Bell Center (gym) is being renovated this summer and will be great for all students, whether they play sports or not.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm so happy I decided to come to Trinity. I was considering going to UT Dallas instead, but after visiting the campus, I made my decision and I haven't regretted it for a second. The small size makes classes more personal and allows you to get to know professors on a more personal level, which can help with jobs, internships, and classwork. Depending on your major and the classes you take, there can be a heavy workload, but it's easy to get used to and there are many resources for getting help. Additionally, since there aren't that many people, you get to know everyone very well and you run into friends on a daily basis. Everyone knows each other and it's way more fun that way. There are things to do every weekend and parties are tons of fun. The dorms are pretty nice, and while I wish we didn't have to live on campus for 3 years, they help you get to know your class better and you can meet a lot of cool people you might not have met otherwise.

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.

4 College Junior

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.

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.
