Trinity is a great college, even if I haven't had the best experience in first year. I think I would have encountered the same pitfalls in any college, although I do think that the student mentoring system is under-utilised ( we heard from the maybe four times during the year). Like anything, you get out what you put in, and I think that I was so stressed for a lot of the year about the academics that I neglected a lot of the social aspects, to the extent that that had a negative impact on the study I was doing. I'd recommend Trinity to a friend, but with the caveat that they need to find the balance pretty quickly, to take the academic side very seriously indeed but know when to let their hair down too.
