Whether they’re drawn to this liberal arts hamlet for its “school spirit, amazing alumni, and career placement,” or the feeling that they are attending a truly competitive college with “a city at your fingertips,” undergraduates at Trinity have access to all the luxuries and opportunities that Trinity’s reputation as a “little Ivy” affords. However, what sets the college apart is its small student-to-faculty ratio and commitment to individualized attention, which promises the added assurance that talented students won’t fall between the cracks. The school earns high marks when it comes to financial aid despite its significant tuition of $45,300, with another $12,300 in room and board. Recent statistics signify that the school meets 100 percent of freshman financial need and remains committed to that percentage across all four years. Remarkably, despite the price, average cumulative indebtedness totals $18,868, significantly lower statistic than many other schools of its rank.
