Am learning a lot
All of the professors under whom I have studied so far have shown themselves to be extremely knowledgeable. The quality of the education, combined with the academic atmosphere, can be highly beneficial no matter what kind of learner you are.
Am enjoying being here
The people around here are great. Trinity truly embodies the idea that the friends you make in college will be your friends for life. Parties are great here, but you don't have to drink to have a good time. Lots of fun and unforgettable memories. I can say all of this even though I'm only a semester in.
Bang for the buck
Be warned, Trinity is expensive, especially for those without financial aid or scholarships. However, I think the Trinity experience is worth it in the end.
Tips for prospective students
Don't be daunted by the inner-city atmosphere, Trinity is like its own little community. I suggest visiting the school if you can. The campus is so beautiful, it will inspire you to strive towards that acceptance letter.
Great for these types of students
Any kind, I see all types of people around the campus and from what I can tell, they all have unique, but great experiences here.

Trinity College is a great place to be challenged academically. Both academics and social life are important here as long as you can find a healthy balance between the two. In coming to Trinity College you should be prepared to meet different types of people of different cultures.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you positively distinguish yourself, and make sure that you demonstrate how you would be an asset to the community in your application as well as in your interviews or phone calls to the school.
Academic Rigor
You can take classes on a range of academic rigor, you education here can really be tailored to what it is that you are looking to gain from school. You can move at a relaxed or very rigorous pace, taking challenging and well taught classes at your own discretion.
Dorm Life
I'm a freshman, I have a single (which isn't uncommon) and I like my living arrangement. My room is a good size, I get heat in my room. The people on my floor are friendly and sometimes I even hang out with people in my hall who have quads. My RA is nice, and isn't overbearing.
Food and Dining
There are a good amount of options for eating on campus and even off into the community. There are 3 main dining halls to eat in and there are different foods offered in each of them all the time. Both hot food and food to-go are easy to get on campus.
What to do for fun
There is always an event to attend on campus. There are sports events to attend, events sponsored by culture houses, movies on campus, dinners and parties.
Bang for the buck
(Assuming that this is asking if the school is worth the money) I get my money's worth coming here. I'm exposed to great people, great opportunities as well as academic rigor.
Clubs and Activities
There is something for everybody on campus to do. And I know every college says this, but if you cannot find something that you like to do on campus club-wise, you can always start up a new club.
Campus Safety
We have an open campus some of out facilities are open to the public. Since we have an open campus, we have a lot of security. If you are walking around anywhere on campus you are always going to see some security walking around.

This college is great if you want to become successful in life. Since its a liberal arts college it prepares you in other fields of study that do not directly relate to your major. Campus life is wonderfully filled with a diversity of people who are friendly and accepting.
