5 College Junior

Administration: Administration is pretty good. Underage drinking and drug use are no permitted in any case. Visits in the dorms occur pretty regularly and there isn't a problem as long as the roommates agree. Academically, administration is very strict and do not tolerate cheating in any way, shape or form.

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.

4 College Senior

Administration: Administration is strict about things that matter most. It makes decisions based on what it values most in education.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus strictness in the school is relatively fair. They respect and consider that we are adults; however, they as well know that every system requires rules and regulations in order for everyone to be safe.

4 College Junior

Administration: Trinity University being a small liberal arts college really encourages students to take initiatives to express one's political, artistic, spiritual, and humanitarian interests; therefore, Trinity embraces an administration that is relatively lenient. As much as that is true, Trinity's honor code and measures of safety is held to the highest standard, so the institution gives students freedom to make their voices heard within reasonable measures.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Trinity is one of the most secure campuses in America, and that safety extends far beyond protection from outside aggressors. The Department of Campus Security actually looks out for kids who might have had too much to drink, but many times they act more as “parental figures” than police officers. The RAs and police officers don’t want to bust every party on campus, because there would be no end to the trials in student court. As long as students don’t try climbing the dorms from one balcony to the other and risk breaking their necks, DCS isn’t likely to interrupt an on-campus party. Social drinking is such a strong part of campus life that authority figures look the other way, for the most part, and spend more time protecting campus from potentially harmful outside elements.

Of course, students who have a record of causing problems and have received multiple warnings from DCS should be aware that some have been expelled before for piling up multiple offenses. Punishment for doing so is not often harsh, but students have been kicked out of school before. If you know that you’re a loud, obnoxious drunk, then try heading to an off-campus party, rather than risk getting yourself and your friends in trouble.
