Reasons to attend and to not attend Trinity College
- “It’s a small school, so you know your professors and they know you.”
- “The very good alumni network. Trinity alums really like to help out current students with job opportunities.”
- “The career department is really, really good for helping people get internships.”
- “If you’re the kind of person who enjoys [socializing] and wants to have a fun college experience, then Trinity is the choice for you.”
- “Great sports and school spirit with hockey, football, and basketball.”
- “The social life is very vibrant. It’s something that a large percentage of the school participates in.”
- “The campus is beautiful. I think when spring comes around there are so many people on the quad tossing the frisbee or doing work. The quad brings the whole student body together.”
To Not Attend
- “Hartford as a city could be better. It doesn’t have any major league sports teams, it’s pretty small, and the specific area Trinity is in isn’t that great.”
- “As a freshman, you’re not allowed to have a car, but I think it’s like that at a lot of places. It does make you feel like you’re in a bubble. That was hard for me freshman year not leaving campus much, but sophomore year I could go off campus more. Having friends with cars is really nice.”
- “If you are more into the artsy scene and doing stuff like that. If you like having a low-key nightlife and don’t want to go to Greek life parties and still have an active nightlife, that’s hard to find.”
- “It’s one of the most expensive schools in the country.” [Total fees for 2019-2020 are $74,400.]
