Molly

The stereotypes of Trinity and its students seem to be pretty obvious. Coming from the west coast and a not particularly preppy school, I think the stereotypes were exaggerated. The first one I heard about Trinity was actually how cute the boys were. Every time I brought up the fact that I was going to Trinity, people would tell me that they had some of the best looking guys. I also heard that everyone dressed the same which proves true most of the time. I heard that Trinity was almost an extension of the boarding schools that students attended in high school as well and that it was hard to break into the groups of people that were already friends from high school.

Kate

preppy, rich, like to party

Preppy Work hard play hard Trust fund babies Rich kids that weren't smart enough for Ivy league
