    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.

    This school is wonderful. After high school, I was burned out of homework and assignments. Pretty much school no longer brought me joy. Trinity University got me excited to learn again. The faculty and staff are amazing and they are there to help you find your path and interests. The small classroom sizes allow for connections to be made between student and student and student and professor. Trinity offers many opportunities for internships, jobs and research as well as classes for all types of majors. Trinity is practically in the heart of San Antonio which offers opportunities for jobs and internships off campus.
    Trinity is a place full of people who didn’t get to go to their first or second choice school for one reason or another and settle for mediocrity often making excuses for their unhappiness. This could be the reason there is a general atmosphere/sense of bitterness and hate throughout the community. Trinity feels very much like a private public high school if that makes sense. The fraternities and sororities are cool and parties are fun but the whole social aspect of Greek life seems meaningless and stupid to everyone else that isn’t apart of Greek life because it is. Academically the school is great. Although a few of the professors are garbage, many of them are very approachable and care about your success. Sports teams are pretty good for division III but then again it’s DIII so no one really cares. Don’t come here expecting a ton of school pride because there is very little of that here. If you come here best of luck to you.
    Sincerely,
    Transferring Student
