This past year at Trine University I have become very close to all the people I have met. It is a great place to meet new people and to get involved. There are plenty of things to do at Trine. Some which include, participating in a sport, band, attending concerts or a sporting event, going to all of the fun activities throughout the year hosted by all of the different clubs, and much more. You'll always know what's going on around campus as well! They are great at advertising events! It's very easy to talk with professors too! Whether you need help or just want some clarification, just ask! I have loved every minute at Trine and I'm super excited to see what the next few years bring!

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!
Very safe and friendly. Greek life here is different from anywhere else I have been; no one judges you for not being Greek and if you are Greek you aren't usually stuck up or rude. Professors are genuinely concerned when you don't show up to class. The dorms are like hotels all with private baths and controllable AC (except traditional styles). Housing off campus (save for Greek life) is super expensive and really not worth it for the condition they're in. Would definitely recommend staying on campus and upgrading to the Villas as an upperclassmen. The food is good at first, but gets boring after awhile try to downgrade to a lower meal plan. There is a party scene, but it manages to be fun and safe. Math department isn't great but the engineering, chemistry, physical therapy and business departments are all great programs. Would not recommend liberal arts majors.
