The students, administration, and even some of theQuite BrightCommunications
The students, administration, and even some of the faculty live a in a bubble. This little bubble encourages homophobia, fundamentalism. and sometimes even violence. It is partially on account of this university that I have seen the hypocrisy, hate-mongering, and exclusivity of the Christian community and have left the faith. I also began to see the logical flaws in any sort of religious faith (it's just believing in something you know isn't true).I was largely ignored by the people I was trying my best to look up to. They often played favorites and made me an outcast (which was the group of people I ended up becoming close friends with).

I absolutely loved myBrightCommunications
I absolutely loved my experience at TWU. Students and staff were kind, open-minded, and cared about me as a person. I've made so many valuable connections career-wise, and grown tremendously as a person. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Trinity Western can have considerable appeal to studentsQuite BrightReligion/Religious
Trinity Western can have considerable appeal to students looking for a friendly and beautiful environment. I chose Trinity primarily because of location, religious affiliation, and tuition cost. For a private Christian liberal arts school, the cost is considerably less than American schools. As an American, I found studying in Canada to be an interesting and valuable experience. BC is absolutely beautiful: take a ferry to Vancouver Island, check out downtown Vancouver, drive two hours to Whistler/Blackcomb (students get a great deal on season passes)....endless outdoor recreation opportunities. Trinity is definately an Evangelical environment, as there are many student clubs/organizations focused on church-related ministries, and all-campus chapels are held in the gym every day (optional attendance).In response to previous comments from a religious studies major regarding a closed-mindedness from students/faculty and difficulty in receiving recognition for the degree, I did not experience these things. My Biblical Studies professors were critical thinkers and encouraged me to think critically, and I got into my top-choice doctorate program in the US. My roommate went on to medical school, and students in the MA biblical studies program went on to doctorate studies at schools such as Notre Dame and Duke; thus, recognition of a Trinity degree was not an issue from my perspective. You won't find the greatest facilities, although the campus has lots of nice landscaping. The faculty challenged me and made themselves available on both professional and personal levels.
