College Consensus has named Trinity University in its 2021 list of the top 100 colleges in the nation. Trinity placed No. 98 on the list and No. 4 in Texas.

College Consensus also named Trinity the No. 38 small college in the nation, a list that focuses on schools with 3,000 or fewer students.

College Consensus uses a Publisher Rating and a Student Review Rating to generate each school’s score. The Publisher Rating refers to a combination of scores made by U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and other prominent college-ranking publications, while the Student Review Rating is created by gathering reports from respected student review sites such as Cappex, Niche, and Student Review. Both scores are then combined to create the College Consensus score, which does not consider the size, location, or classification of universities. Trinity received an overall College Consensus score of 74.2, with a Publisher Rating of 74 and a Student Consensus of 74.5. 

These comprehensive standings serve as a tool for prospective students to compare their top college choices regardless of size, location, form, or classification alongside other schools in the U.S. These rankings of the best colleges and universities is designed to help prospective students recognize what universities have to bring to the table comparatively and make the most informed decision possible utilizing expert and student opinion.
