Trinity College - Connecticut Reviews
Honestly, I am not very involved in the athletics at Trinity because I have never been good at any sport; I am just the kind of girl that tries to go to the gym constantly and maintains a balanced diet. However, I am aware that Trinity has one of the best squash teams in the nation, and the athletic facilities for squash and every other sport reflect the college's interest and enthusiasm in providing its students with everything they need to succeed. Moreover, I have heard athletes' complaints about how little support and attendance they get from the rest of the students on campus during games or competitions and how they feel that Trinity urgently needs to boost its school spirit. Unfortunately, I do feel that varsity sports (especially the squash team) overshadow intramural sports, and that's the reason why some of my friends and others who are interested in practicing a particular sport just for fun have had trouble finding one that doesn't require such a serious level of commitment and responsibility. In my opinion, if Trinity pays special attention to inviting more students to join intramural sports, then perhaps those same students would start supporting more those who are involved in varsity sports. My recommendation for anyone at Trinity would be this one: it doesn't matter if you are a great athlete or not, please, please, please, attend and support the other athletes on campus! They sacrifice a great deal of their time to represent our college and that should not be taken for granted. Lastly, and especially if you are not excellent at any sport just like me, at least try to workout at the gym or swim in the pool once per week; they are extremely well equipped and would contribute to keeping you both physically and mentally healthy!
I have only experienced positive feedback and professors that truly care about how their students are doing in class. I have never known a college where the professors go out of their way to make time to meet with and discuss questions and problems their students have concerning a class project or exam results. If their office hours are not convenient for a students' schedule then the professor will work it out with the student. And there is always email. Student life and great and yes, there are undergraduates over 25 - Trinity has a marvelous program, Individualized Degree Program.
Not my first choice when I was applying, but certainly the right choice. Could not be happier anywhere else. Very well balanced between vibrant social life and rigorous academics. Amazing professors in almost every department. Beautiful campus and much nicer dorms than most colleges. Food leaves something to be desired but Hartford being a diverse city with lots of options means great food to be found off campus. Social life can be small and repetitive by your Junior year, but best parties in the NESCAC by far, and possibly at any liberal arts college of its size.
