Student Sound Offs
"The professors are always giving more time to the students than they have to. They're willing to sacrifice their time so that we can do our absolute best."
"Trinity offers a truly unique experience. The way the school integrates faith and academia is exceptional, and I appreciate the deep-felt desire our profs have to invest in their students' lives."
"The tuition is very high. It is the most expensive university in the country. I understand that it is a private institution; however, it is almost unfeasible."
"The campus is horrible - not a single building is in the same architectural style, if you can even call it that. The lake and the lawns and flowers and trees are beautiful, but the campus buildings are hideous."
"Trinity charges commuters for wireless Internet. What are they thinking? We are already paying an arm and a leg just to go there, the campus is inadequate as it is, and now we have to pay for wireless ... That's just wrong."
"I love the sense of community that Trinity has. For someone who lives away from home, it has become a place of comfort and safety, a place where I enjoy being."
"It has the tendency to come across to others as a snobby university, because the university community is so close and involved with each other. If you are an outsider looking in, or haven't participated in a group or activity of some sort ... I have heard that TWU seems cliquey."
"It is not true that Trinity Western is a Bible school. I believe it makes a tremendous effort to provide a quality academic environment with an emphasis on holistic liberal arts education and growth of individuals, rather than being career-minded."
"People seem to believe that we have crazy rules and regulations. Yes, there are some things that a student has to agree to in order to be accepted, but part of that is simply because it is a Christian university. Most of us are not religious fanatics, nor do we stay home and read our Bibles all the time."
