Trinity has always had a very small alumni network with very little clout. Don?t expect the name to carry you far in town, let alone outside of San Antonio. The town is run by St. Mary?s, UTSA, and A&M graduates. Graduates from these schools are more likely to find work than the average Trinity graduate. Most of the people from my graduating class were forced to enroll in graduate school after failing to find work. This is usually one of Trinity?s biggest selling points, yet they consistently fail to mention that this panic-induced grad school application frenzy is not by choice. If you do plan on enrolling in a graduate program, you?ll probably have to look further than Trinity?s limited offerings. Since it?s a liberal arts university, their graduate programs focus primarily on teaching.
The classes were marginally challenging, but my core classes failed to delve deeper than remedial material. It was relatively easy when compared to what my friends from other local universities were doing. I?ve always excelled academically, but Trinity didn?t require me to exude much effort. As long as I read the readings and showed up for class, I did well. I believe that?s the case with any college, though. I was, however, very impressed with the faculty. Most of my professor?s held the highest degree in their fields and were very knowledgeable. Their classrooms simply weren?t very engaging and often stifled creative thinking due to their conservative, restrictive atmospheres.
As far as the social scene goes, the majority of the school is comprised of Greek life drones . It?s a very cliquish, high school-type environment, as other reviewers have mentioned. To me, it was indicative of how blissfully and utterly unprepared my classmates were for the real world. Scholarship wasn?t encouraged as much as drinking or partying was. The student body is predominantly white, heterosexual, and upper middle class. You?ll be hard-pressed to find much diversity here.
And then there?s the price. I can?t emphasize enough how inexplicably high the tuition is. I mentioned earlier that many of my peers encountered issues finding jobs, and the ones who did told me they were offered the same starting salaries as their public school counterparts. I myself have encountered this as well. I didn?t expect to enter the workforce and break the bank right away, but I expected to at least be compensated according to my academic credentials. After all, I?m from Trinity. You?re starting to see how ridiculous and over-hyped this all sounds, right?
I definitely agree with the most recent reviewer. For Trinity?s price, you could easily attend one of Texas?s many prestigious institutions and gain far more out of your college years. I regret not going that route.
