    Trinity College is a wonderful university that strives to help its students to become the best achievers they can be! Despite being a small campus, interpersonal relationships are made quickly and regardless of graduation year. One of the biggest things that would be worth changing would be the diversity. The campus is primarily white and there should be a greater outreach to international students and students of color.

    I have met amazing people and taken interesting classes, but unless you are a WASP sports kid, it takes more effort to find the cooler more down to earth people. The professors are across the board very helpful and accommodating, and the student resource center seems to really care about the students' mental healths. While I have experienced more than my fair share of encounters with drunk white boys, they're usually charmingly wasted, and I have never felt unsafe on campus. Hartford makes for some DELICIOUS delivery options, and as long as you aren't walking alone, you can enjoy some walking day trips around the city and return back to campus. The freshman dorms can be pretty gross, but I had a single and was able to feel clean and comfortable. The campus and its views are undeniably gorgeous, and some of the classes are so unique and cool-although you have to be a sophomore or above to take any classes you actually want.
    Trinity College has been noticeably evolving over the past four years for the better under its new leadership team. The students remain both serious and fun loving, while there is a growing sense of inclusion and welcoming atmosphere. The professors remain top notch and the campus remains stunningly beautiful. Also, given Trinity’s unique city location among top LACs, internship opportunities in business, government, medical, insurance and non-profits are valuable draws as well. Unfortunately, due to some serious ballot stuffing by a few political fanatics, Trinity’s overall composite score has been negatively skewed. Meantime, in actuality, the quality of incoming students keeps growing and campus energy is way up.
