I came to Trine for the small school feel but the large school spirit. I have been able to go out of my normal comfort zone while I've been here through the different clubs and activities that Trine offers. The class sizes being as small as they are is a very big plus and helps teachers treat you as a person - rather than a number like at larger universities. I am able to have meaningful conversations with my professors like I wouldn't have been able to anywhere else.
