4 College Sophomore

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 Junior

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

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

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 Recent Alumnus

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

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Part of the reason that the Trinity campus is referred to as “the Bubble” is because of the safety that comes along with living there. Very seldom are there any real problems on campus, and sometimes, the most interesting part of the campus newspaper is the “Campus Security Briefs,” which have included tales of cafeteria employees walking into poles or tripping over food products. Trinity has had issues with people from the surrounding areas breaking into dorms and visitors staying past alloted hours in the library.  The Trinity Department of Campus Safety (DCS) is very lax when it comes to dealing with the students. If they spot an underage drinker wandering around campus, they are more likely to make sure that the person can find his or her way home than to report them. Even the drug policy is flexible. In the rare likelihood that you are caught doing drugs, you will not go before the city police. Instead, you’ll face a student court who will likely assign you a few hours of community service and sternly warn you to “pass on grass.”

Although they do not harass the students, DCS is a presence on campus, and most students never feel afraid to take a walk or jog at any time of the night. For those who are a little more timid, there is an escort service available. And not only are you provided with the comfort of knowing you will get to your dorm in a timely fashion and not risk walking across campus alone, but you’ll also get to ride in those little golf carts. Overall, DCS is great at what they do. They sternly, but compassionately, create an atmosphere where students can, and often do, take their personal safety for granted.
