When I visited Trine University last month it was an unforgettable experience. The amount of hard work and effort the owners and employees do is something out movies. They sit down and talk with the students to discuss what Trine could do better or offer. Such as last year, a group of students bowled all through high school but Trine did not have a bowling team. So, they talked with Trine and inevitably they started their own club and played a few other colleges nearby that had bowling teams. They actually did quite well. As of the fall semester of 2017 arises, a 6 lane bowling alley is being built and a bowling team had been established.
Review Trine University
For being a small campus, I couldn't have asked for a better college experience. They have everything that a larger school has, but keeps the promise of small class sizes!
Worried about not adjusting, I have acclimated better than I would have ever guessed. I treasure this school! The professors, the students, the activities; I would never transfer. Beautiful campus as well. Greek life is a blast! This school is perfect and I would highly recommend to anyone that is interested in a serious respecting education.
