    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.

    Trinity is a perfect fit if you're a white heterosexual cis-man. If you fall into any other category it's still a decently good school, most students are generally either nice or know to leave you alone. Most professors are great but there are a few to avoid, befriending upperclassmen is a great way to learn who you shouldn't take classes with. A lot has been done recently to improve diversity and the lives of minority students on campus but a lot of minority students have problems with administration lately which is understanding considering how much there is that still needs work in the way of understanding diversity on campus. Education-wise it's a great school, classes are rigorous but the professors are very willing to help with anything and everything. Also the staff at the dining hall are some of the sweetest people ever, if you come here make an effort to talk to them and they'll treat you 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.
