I feel very safe when I'm on campus at Trinity. Security on our campus runs a very tight watch on our campus. I attend school in a neighborhood where there have been several incidents of crimes close to the school. As students we constantly are alerted through text messaging and emails about our personal safety, security measures and even server weather changes. Our president Pat McGuire does an awesome job notifying the students as well as the staff and she makes her instructions very clear to us to follow!

When I registered for classes the first semester it was relatively easy. I had the assistance of my academic advisor encouraging me to challenge myself and also advised what classes would be best to take as college freshmen. Once classes started I did not regret my decision to attend Trinity. Professor explain themselves well and demonstrate they care about their students' academic success. Professor are available to help and they even open some tutoring sessions when they notice a class struggling. Since classes are small, student participation, and attendance is part of our final grades.

Being a non traditional student put me in a different place. I am an adult learner, with a lot of years working experience. Now that I have a chance to go back to school, I want to excel to new heights. When I first came back to school, I was a bit afraid that I would have difficulty remembering the material, which in my mind would make me fall behind. However, that has not been a problem for me at all. i have learned what works for me, and I do it! My grades have never been better. I will admit, it is much harder at my age, however I remain focused.
