  • They spoil you. Suite-style dorms, residence mentors that actually help you out, room-cleaning service -- it's all there. CosmoGirl once called Trinity's dorms the nicest in the nation. They're not…

  • The dormitories at Trinity University are very well-kept, especially in the first-year and sophomore quads. They offer laundry, trash and recycling services, as well as a sort of housekeeping service…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Trinity has a dining hall and four other restaurants on campus. The dining hall is okay. Far from the best, but far from the worst as well. The dining hall food is pretty much about the same twenty meals cycled throughout the entire semester. The other resturants, such as Einsteins and Freshii's are much better, but are also more expensive. You have to use your meal plan carefully so that you don't blow all your bonus bucks too early in the semester.

    There are several dining locations on campus- Mabee dining hall, a few small quick restaurants on upper campus (Einstein's Bagels, Taco Taco, Freshii), and 3 or 4 PODs which sell snacks and sandwiches and things like that. Meal plans are comprised of dining hall swipes and Bonus Bucks. Get the meal plan with the most Bonus Bucks- you will run out. The dining hall food is on the better side considering it's a college campus, but it can be hit-or-miss sometimes.

    To me the food has its good days and bad days at the dining hall, but there are mostly bad days. The dining hall makes the best food for breakfast. There are other places to get food on campus that is good like Einstein's and the POD.

    The food in Mabee pretty much sucks, but there are some other options on campus where you can use your Tiger Bucks money. And, there are lots of great dining options in San Antonio and a lot of people have cars, so it's pretty easy to get off campus to restaurants and shopping.

    I'll be honest when I say that there's a rather limited variety of dining options. Other than the main cafeteria, Mabee, whose food selection and quality is above average could use some improvement, everything else is pretty much snack food.

    The best part about the food is that it is right there and pre-made, and available with the swipe of your Tiger Card. Unfortunately, the quality isn't the best. It is possible to make it by with a small amount of healthy options, but it is definitely easier to gain the freshman 15.

    Food options are average and students are not allowed to take food out of the main dining hall.

    If you aren't in Greek Life, you may not notice it all that often. If you are in Greek life, it'll probably take over your entire life, especially if you are a freshman. Greek Life isn't really supported by the administration, so many in it feel as though they are not treated as well as other organizations on campus. Rushing is very odd at Trinity and is actually stretched out to last the entire first semester.

    Not as intense as big state schools, but still a pretty active presence on campus with a lot of really fun people. You can participate in Greek Life or not and, either way, you'll have a great time!

    The greek organizations on campus are fun to be part of and all, but one fraternity, are local organizations. There are no greek houses so if you are looking for the movie version of greek life, Trinity isn't the place.

    Fraternities and Sororities at Trinity are mostly only found at Trinity University. There are a couple of Greek organizations that are national, but for the most part you will find Greek life at Trinity to be driven solely by the school it calls home. Fraternities and sororities are very active with community service.

    It's there if you want it. There's been a lot of controversy about some alleged hazing on campus, (which ultimately amounted to underage drinking and a required trip to a strip-club) and a couple of fraternities have been suspended. Greek alumni are not taking kindly to it, but no one else really seems to care.
