I am an international student at Trinity.

Trinity has furnished me with countless great memories. With three years of required on-camps housing, you will definitely feel at home here and experience the southern hospitality on campus.

Also, Trinity's challenging courses and respectful + intellectual student body will help you grow as a well-rounded and open-minded person.

Enrolling at Trinity was one of the best decisions of my life! My amazing teachers and friends made this campus my sanctuary, San Antonio my hometown, and Spurs my favorite team!

I hope it will be home for many great people as well.

I love this school! The academic focus here is strong. We have amazing faculty (ranked #6 in the Nation by WSJ). Professors are extremely accessible and very willing to help you succeed. There are tons of great activities and groups to join. If you don't find something, you can easily start up a new club. This is the most gorgeous campus. Butterflies are all around and we are next to the lovely historic Brackenridge Park, Japanese Tea Garden and the San Antonio Zoo. In recent years, Tigers have won 4 NCAA team championships and 4 individual track and field national titles. There isn't a huge party scene on campus. But we are 5 minutes from the River Walk and there is always something entertaining to do.
Anyone giving this school a low review is of the minority. I had my reserves about Trinity before coming to campus for an athletic recruiting visit but as soon as I set foot on campus I knew it was the place for me. The campus is stunning. The dorms as far above average. Finding a small school like this in the middle of a large city is pretty much unheard of. Above all the faculty and staff are genuinely interested in your personal wellbeing and success. Everyday I spend at this school, despite the rigorous stress of the academic load, I am so grateful for the opportunity I was given to attend Trinity. Trinity is not a big, public, party and sports school. It is a school full of people with incredible hearts and minds that want to contribute the best of their abilities to this world.
