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.

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.
Trinity has so much to offer. Located in the heart of the capital of CT, students can do internships at the statehouse, Hartford Hospital, the Atheneum, insurance companies and countless non-profits. Trinity's professors are dedicated and knowledgeable. The school has amazing study abroad opportunities -both short and long term. This wonderful school is a hidden gem. The alumni network is strong, and students are loyal to the school. I loved my time at Trinity and made a diverse group of friends.
