I think Trinidad State Junior College is the ideal place to go if you are looking for a more connective school. Our classrooms may be small but there are a lot of great events that occur in and around them. Our sports teams have close connections and relationships, basically a family. We all experience fast and knowledgeable help from all the college staff. The Staff will help you and accommodate any inconveniences you may have with the best results possible.

To begin, while I attended Trinidad State Junior college I really had a great time. We had small classes, one on one time with professors. It was a community of great people from all over the place. I really learned a lot from the professors. Everyone at TSJC was there to help and make you accomplish what you wanted to do. Best decision ive ever made.

My overall opinion of Trinidad Sate Junior College is that it is a good school but there are some negatives about it. YOU WILL BE BORED OUT OF YOUR MIND. There is literally nothing to do when there are no events up. Oh and if you don't play a sport? Good luck finding something to eat up your free time. The food is pretty decent and the dorms are built like a prison cell. bring a rug and multiple fans cause sometimes it gets really hot. Class sizes are just like high school so it is not overwhelming. People are fun to talk to and a lot of them are from out of state or even the country. There is a lot of support to help you so there is no reason to fail. Overall its a okay two year school.

My degree plan is an specialized Applied Sciences not listed or common. Gunsmithing is the program and Trinidad Junior State College is known for being the best. The higher rate is extremely high and prominent. I researched all my options for this degree plan and it stood out from the other two I found. The admittance per semester is small, as is the class to teacher ratio. Initially I did not get accepted, and that devastated me. Luckily I was accepted for the following semester, which worked out for the best. It gave me a chance to evaluate whether or not this was my decided degree plan and if I had the resilience to try again. The instructors are great and so are my classmates. We began together and will graduate at the same time. This has helped us build a tight bond. I would definitely recommend this school for all students interested in gunsmithing.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would tell my high school self to keep up the good work! You made excellent class choices in high school to advance your college start. Now don't give up! When college gets hard, keep trying. Don't miss class, talk to your professors if you need help or you don't understand. I would also tell myself to pick a smaller school. I feel I struggled with large university auditorium classes. Too impersonal and didn't fit my personality. Work on being outgoing, what have you got to lose, but a missed oppurtunity. Keep persuing your dreams they will soon be a reality!
