What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
I love Trinity and am so happy with my decision to come here! The people are really friendly, the staff and professors really care about you, and the climate is great! The academics are excellent with small classes and all my classes are taught by brilliant professors with Phd's.

Here's the truth: Trinity University is an overlooked, academically solid liberal-arts college with a lingering, somewhat-deserved reputation as being filled with upper class, suburbanite, WASP-y Texans. While some students fit the bill, there are also plenty of out-of-staters, international students, and middle-class kids on scholarships (like me!)
The academic flexibility and rigor is a big draw, as well as the small class sizes, bountiful internships and undergraduate research opportunities (and being in the heart of San Antonio doesn't hurt either.)
