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.
At Trine University, the student is not just a number but a part of the community. Professors know you by name and want you to succeed. Choosing Trine University was a great decision and I recommend anyone interested in a strong community and a great education, come to Trine!
The professors here always there to help, the campus is gorgeous, we get a lot of free trine merchandise, and there are MANY student organizations available!
