The "typical" Trinity student is often categorized as a white, preppy graduate of an elite boarding or private school in the Northeast, who spends summers on Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard or the Cape-- the girls in sun dresses and the guys in their Nantucket reds and polo shirts. Trinity's academic environment is stereotyped as being less intellectual than that of its counterpart NESCAC colleges, boasting an intense and active social scene as the students loyally uphold the slogan, "work hard, play hard." Trinity is also targeted for having a low level of diversity in its student body, uneasy relationships between students of different backgrounds, and a strained "town-gown" relationship with the residents of Hartford.
