    Trinity is a very expensive school. If it wasn't for my scholarships, then I don't think I would be as happy with the experience without my aid. The school has so much to offer in terms of STEM programs and Trinity also goes out of its way to provide students with helpful, though sometimes stupid, resources. For example, one time they bought like 500 pounds of fake snow during fall finals to lift moral. Nice, I guess, but also incredibly stupid.

    Trinity is known as the "Best in the West" and although it's not an Ivy League school, carries some particular meaning with the name. There are a ton of famous and successful people who have attended Trinity, so you'll be in good company!

    I think Trinity is a great school for the money! It's a great Liberal Arts school with expanded majors which really gives you the best of both worlds! Also, the tuition, room and board, while not inexpensive, isn't as expensive as some comparable small universities that I was considering. Their academic scholarships are pretty generous if you have at least a 3.5 unweighted GPA and score pretty well on your SAT which is really nice. Trinity also has a big endowment for a small school, so the money is there for both academic and need-based scholarships.
