Residences. Not enough rooms for everybody and not many common rooms. And they were not prepared for so many students. But everything else, I couldn't ask for better. All of my professors enjoy what they are doing, want to help, and I have a lot of opportunities to get involved with organizations, the campus, community and employers!

So far my experience at Trine has been good! It isn't a huge school so everything is very personal with you and your professor. There is always something going on as long as you are willing to venture out of your room. I get the feel that they really care about the students, and that really makes me like going here.
At Trine University, everyone is somebody, instead of just another face in the crowd. I absolutely love Trine due to the clean campus, athletics, clubs, and professors. All of my professors care about each student beyond their academic career, and take time to learn about you. Trine is also a small campus, which is surprisingly great because I know everyone. Something I would like to see changed on campus is the parking and the food. The food is a hit and miss as far as how good it is, and the parking is atrocious since there aren't enough parking spots. Therefore, I absolutely love Trine and can't wait to see it grow even more.
