            My time at Trinity was outstanding. Great people - both professors and peers. Great facility - just went back for my ten year reunion, took a walk around the campus and discovered the new science building is out of this world! Great city to spend four years of my life in. I made connections to last a lifetime.

            Trinity was an oasis. The campus is a relaxing, quiet, natural atmosphere, but is only minutes from a vibrant downtown. I transferred in and found Trinity to be twice the school of my previous one. The faculty are fantastic, the studious atmosphere is perfectly balanced. There are plenty of opportunities for people who are outgoing and those who are not. I'd strongly encourage anyone to consider attending Trinity.

            I loved the grounds at Trinity, the hills and the green spaces. I loved Nina Ekstein and Matt Stroud. I loved the small class sizes, being in the first class of Zeta Chi. I loved the feeling of independence and discovery. I loved my year abroad in France, being in a play or two, playing with my friends in the RTF department, the international student association. I met my best friends at Trinity, friends I have kept until today. We were so proud of the tennis team back in my days, and I took racquetball and karate, and geology and history, I learned so much. It made me a better citizen, a better mom, and an effervescent cocktail hour conversationalist. It is the Harvard of the South, I am told, and I am so happy I went to Trinity. Plus, San Antonio is a heck of a lot of fun.
