Trinity College

Hartford, CTwww.trincoll.edu
Trinity is a small, private liberal arts college that traces its history back to 1823. It currently has some 2,100 undergraduates and a student-faculty ratio of about 9 to 1. The students at Trinity come from 41 states and 70 countries. Most students live on campus during all four of their undergraduate years, where they have their choice of more than 140 student clubs and organizations. The nearby capital, Hartford, is host to a vibrant local bar and restaurant scene, not to mention various historical and art museums. A highlight of life in the small town is the scenic seasons residents get from living in New England, but a downside is the sometimes unsafe downtown and higher than average crime rate. Often, students will opt for on-campus activities and events like Spring Weekend, a festival with big name musical artists such as Kiiara, Louis the Child, or Trinity alum Viceroy. Greek life is extremely popular, and more than 400 students are a part of one of the 15 chapters on campus. Students who want to experience a brighter and bigger urban town can trek the two and a half hours by car to New York City or hop on an Amtrak train.
