Am learning a lot
I have learn a lot.
Am enjoying being here
I like the small classes and the one on one instruction. I like the fact the teacher is willing to help you. But the social life at Trinity isn't all that good.
Bang for the buck
Trinity is expensive for it to be a private school but it is worth it. You will be getting a great education.
Tips for prospective students
Don't procrastinate. Time management is very important.
Great for these types of students
I recommend Trinity University if you want to go to a small school, that have small classes, and one on one instruction if needed. I like the fact that the teacher is willing to help you.

While at Trinity University i learned a lot. Taking the many different classes that I have the instructors were very nice.
Did enjoy being here
I enjoyed being at Trinity University for the year I was there. Trinity has a variety of different people that i have met.
Bang for the buck
Trinity is a very high priced school, which was my reason for not being able to return, but it was worth every penny.

Attend Trinity but make sure you have the money to go with it!

Trinity is a great university.
Trinity will help you to succeed in life.
Trinity helps women with their education.
Tips for prospective students
Trinity is a good school it has small class size and you wouldn't be a number in a class the professor will get to know you. As a trinity student you can take on the challenges as a women going to a university pursuing in a degree.
Academic Rigor
As a trinity student you can get one on one attention with your professor during their office hours.
Dorm Life
Trinity you can stay on campus and go to different events on campus like poetry slams, discussions and games. By staying on campus you can meet interesting people from other states and be able to connect with them.
Food and Dining
At Trinity you have two places for dining. The deli in Main and Alumni Hall. In Alumni Hall it's a all you can eat style.
What to do for fun
Go out in dc to the malls, social events, clubs etc
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
At Trinity they have traditions in which each class has a color like blue, gold, green and red. During your freshwomen year you get to sign the honor code and receive your freshman medal. Sophomore Pin in which sophomore's declare their majors and Junior Ring Day. Also their are other traditions like class color day's, cap and gown weekend, well sings and courtyard sings, and founders day.

Trinity is definitely a hidden gem.
Trinity is a melting pot of cultures
Trinity is overall a great platform for those looking to expand themselves academically, socially, and mentally.
Tips for prospective students
1. Have all your paperwork, the office of enrollment like organization and transparency.
2. Be optimistic, Trinity isn't a huge school. We are a humble little campus. Doesn't mean it's not worth it going here.
3. Be organized with classes. The classes really aren't trying to kill you. If you do all of your work and actually put yourself on a schedule, 4.0 can be yours.
4. Find a study group, make one, something! You need to study.
5. Study first, club or fun activity as a reward. Alot of students get caught up with the fact that DC is full of clubs and activities for the college generation. This can hinder your grades. Use those attractions for rewards to yourself.
6. Get INVOLVED! Find a club to join, it'll make college easier. you need to socialize.
7. USE YOUR PROFESSOR'S OFFICE HOURS! They will boost your confidence in that class, subsequently boosting your grades. Get all your questions and concerns out then.
Academic Rigor
Academically this school is great. I think they could be tougher because I have witnessed students cheat their way through a class.
Besides the few rotten apples, the class sizes are what's most appealing to me. The fact that I can access my professor and get one on one time instead of competing for attention, boosts my academic capabilities. The overall curriculum I'm still evaluating, I think it's pretty rigorous so far, but definitely achievable.
Dorm Life
I love Trinity's aged charm, but I believe the dorm halls definitely need restoring. The architecture is great, the condition is not.
Food and Dining
I am probably one of very few, but I like the food in the dining hall. You do have your hit and misses, but with our new chef, I think the food is diverse, healthy, and tasteful. Alot of people DON'T like it because its not the typical, pizza, burgers, and fried foods everyday. The dining team definitely introduced some foreign cuisines this recently that only cultured individuals would appreciate.
What to do for fun
This is where Trinity Washington University needs a reality check in the administration and student services department. I appreciate the faculty who run this area of Trinity BUT, Trinity is absolutely, positively boring. We have student activities that really try to make an effort to gather the student body together but because we are right in the middle of Catholic U and Howard it's hard for us to keep up. Why? Trinity doesn't give their students the same privileges as the surrounding schools. Therefore, many of our girls go running off to Howard or Catholic U to have fun.
Now in no way am I saying the student body is boring. We have an extreme amount of potential. We just need the administrators to give us the platform the way we need it. I know the ins and outs of this topic because I am an officer of a club here and we often converse about possible activities, then have to reconsider due to limitations.
Bang for the buck
If you can't afford any other College/University in Washington, DC, I'd say that this is your GO-TO! Sits between two awesome schools (Howard and Catholic U), you're literally a walk away from Brookland Metro Station, there's plenty of shopping and attractions in all directions from downtown (Gallery Place/Chinatown/MetroCenter/WhiteHouse/ Smithsonian), north (downtown silver spring/wheaton mall), southwest(Pentagon city mall, Alexandria, airport), Southeast dc(navy yard, eastern marker, capitol hill), NW (georgetown, harbor, kennedy center, etc) and well our area NE/NW (Howard Theater, restaurants, columbia heights, U street, etc)
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Well Kerby Hall has been recognized nationally as a haunted landmark ;-)
Great for these types of students
Small town individuals, shy people, those in great need of financial assistance, those looking to expand their horizons without culture shock,
Clubs and Activities
We have alot of Clubs! I can't list them here but if you visit Trinitydc.edu you can find them. Girls love starting clubs and I think they're very successful especially when it comes to going out and networking.
Greek Life
Only Greek organization I'm aware of here on campus is Delta Sigma Theta Inc.
Campus Safety
That's one thing you'll never have to worry about. We have a great team of security guards and campus police officers. A little too overbearing at times, but I'd rather be protected than anything else.
