I'm going to talk a little bit about the social life and types of students here…

I transferred over from Hope College in Michigan in hopes of staying grounded in my faith and meeting new people, all the while staying focused on my major (business) and embracing "college life" by meeting new people, maturing, and just enjoying myself. I have to say I was disappointed. The first day we got put into groups (the newbies) so we can socialize and get to know Trinity a little better. The upperclassmen were so cliquish and standoffish that it made it a little difficult to go to them for help. The groups/Bible study groups you're put in make you feel like you're back in high school. You don't feel like you're on your own because the other students are always in your business it seems. Students are immature and look scared to talk to you. Now, I can understand that college is intimidating at first and it can be stressful adjusting, but Trinity is a small school so why should you be scared to talk to people? Things just seemed off here…At Hope things were different in that people gave you space but at the same time were open and kind and said hi to you here and there. Here at Trinity people keep to themselves when they're around you for the most part as if they're not allowed to speak. But, since its such a small school (believe me, its small) word gets around VERY fast. Another thing that threw me off were the weekend activities. It seemed that unless you were part of a clique, you weren't exactly wanted. I participated in some clubs but soon stopped attending them because no one was there for a purpose other than gossip and talk about the teachers. I got the feeling that the students did not like people of other religions. I also noticed how MOST of the students attending had previously attended small Christian schools that didn't have much culture and diversity.

The only positive aspect about this school are the teachers. Most of them are super helpful if you cooperate with them. But ultimately, your college experience will mostly depend on your social circle and the people you meet, so keep that in mind when looking at this school…

So I guess if you're looking for a school to really socialize and be yourself, not get bored, and embrace diversity, and constantly have something to do, then Trinity isn't for you. It's not that kind of school. However, if you're looking for something small and prep-like that feels like a community college, go for it.
