Don't come here.BrightFinance
Don't come here. The trick you at the "360 event" and make it look good by having it on a weekend when there is tons of sports and such going on. However, it is all a lie...I got tricked into coming here and it was the biggest mistake of my life. And please please please DEFINITELY don't come here to play FOOTBALL. The coach is terrible and doesn't care about any of his players or his reputation.

Question
Academically: Science majors have a hard time andBrightEngineering Department
Academically: Science majors have a hard time and spend lots of hours in lab and studying. The professors are very good and helpful outside of class. Trinity has few ties to companies. It is not an actively recruited by any major science or engineering firms. Trinity does however have many ties to grad schools. If your looking to go to grad school, go to Trinity. If not, it makes it hard to justify attending here if you can't turn your degree into a job.

University Resources: Career center needs a complete overhaul. When I went in as a Sophomore to get help writing a resume, I was told, "We don't really do technical resumes" referring that the career center caters to business majors and if your major is anything technical you're out of luck. Greek life is hated unconditionally by the dean of students and president. They actively go out of their way to make this known. Social life on campus is very good. There are numerous clubs and activities to get involved with. And downtown San Antonio is close but expensive. There are numerous local places nearby. If people talk about the "Trinity Bubble" and Trinity Student never leaving campus, they and those students never tried very hard to get off campus and see the city. All and all I had a great experience at Trinity, but having every major company I apply to ask where is Trinity, that they've never heard of it, and want to know what a B.S. in Engineering Science is has been very disheartening.

Question
I started out in the premed program, andSuper BrilliantPolitical Science
I started out in the premed program, and that changed after about 3 days! But I didn't feel bad, as about half of the people who start the program change their mind. The classes are challenging, but the professors are wonderful! The atmosphere is friendly, but a lot of the students are rather out of touch when it comes to life in general. If you come from a middle class background, went to public school, and maybe even had a job, sometimes you will become very annoyed with people who seem to have no concept of reality for most people. A lot students here come from rich, white families and have no concept of money, work, and their idea of a crisis is missing an episode of The O.C. Nice people, but in for a rude awakening if Mommy and Daddy ever stop running their lives for them. Looking back, I should have used my high test scores to get a full ride at a public university with more people like myself. Glad I came though, I have made some good friends, and SA is a cool place to live.
