I love Trinity because the school is full of love and caring. Teachers know their students after a week of class, teachers are very much available to help their students. Everything about it is just what I was looking for in a college. Students help each other succeed, Advisors are just wonderful helping students making for sure that they are taking the right class and are on the right path for their major.

zaza - 09/24/2019

I wish I never came to this school. This school sucks really bad the foundation professor Barkley is the worst professor in the whole world. She can't teach and literally talks about irrelevant things that have nothing to do with the class. You are better off going to a different school. They only have 5 people graduating this year and I didn't even find that out until I started the program at this school. The professors for Pharmacology she's a good but for health assessment and foundation good luck!

Jasmy - 06/29/2019

Trinity Washington University is a good school. Academically, I receive the help needed by my professors, many times they help arrange office hours around the student schedule. On campus there are various of places to study and get homework done. Student life isn't much, there is barely much to do.

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

    Going back as a high school senior I would give myself three advices confidence, money, and vision. I've learned all three being a college student now but many times I wish that I could go back and learned them in high school so that I could advance in college. As a senior being confident would have been key to the idea of college. I would know that I am smart and know that I could go to college and do well. If I were confident as a senior then I would not be afraid of apply to different colleges around the United States. Also I would work more hours as a senior because now I know how expensive college is. I would probably sign up for more scholarships and try to help babysit, clean, or tutor to earn extra cash. Lastly I would sit down and think to myself what am I going to do in college? What is it that I like? I would have a clear vision of what I am going to do in college in order to not waste time or money.

  11. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    Trinity was a religious school. You had a large church right on the property. In times of stress, times when you were seeking peace and quiet, you had something on your mind, or, you just wanted to meditate you could escape into that church. Trinity had a beautiful campus and an air of quaintness about it. That was not a bad thing. I see that it has big plans for the future. I can only wish them luck in their endeavors. They were wonderful for me and sought to help, nurture, students. I believe that they are still that way.

  12. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most fustrating thing about Trinity Washington University is that they only provide a limited number of scholarship oppurinities. When your're a freshmen you are considered for certain scholarships based on academic achivememt or community work (Girl Scouts). Once you've completed your freshmen year it is hard to find more aid because it is beging given to incoming freshmen. Along with the FAFSA and the renewable scholarships you automatically get for the new year it seems like there is no more financial aid assisstance. My institiution of higher education is great, but I wish for more scholarships.
