“A Welcoming Educational Oasis in Deepest Hartford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Trinity College offers much for a variety of tastes and interests. The Chapel is a gem of neo-gothic architecture; and includes wonderful, locally symbolic carvings at the ends of each of the choir stalls. Classic high-Anglican but welcoming of all faiths. In the autumn, the Trinity Bantams showcase excellent NESCAC football featuring a very strong reputation for winning and disciplined, fair play. A good time is had by all fans. In the spring, the baseball team brings back the classic pastime on the gently sloping campus dotted with flowering trees. And through-out the academic year (and often beyond it), the Trinity Cine-studio offers a mix of classic and recent films of note. The prices are reasonable- and the general public has been responding to the ambiance and the progams for decades.
Finally, the library is open for vistors- computers are available when checking in at the desk. Trinity is truly a first class establishment.

The college is in a very bad neighborhood. There are safer places to get a quality college experience.

“Peaceful place to visit.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

Trinity College is an oasis in Hartford. My daughter went to college there and I have taken my mentee on a visit there. There are some nice places to spread a blanket or lie in the grass on a nice day. If you're looking for a place to walk this is it too. I don't see it as a tourist place however.
