Residential or Commuter?
First Time Freshmen
If this is your first time at college, you will either be living on campus as a “residential” student or at home with your parents as a “commuter.” Either way, you will stay on campus for the five days of FYF 101. This required course takes place right before classes start. It’s essentially an intensive retreat, so you can take part in forming our community and understanding our mission.
We think this is so important that we do not charge you extra for the 5-day stay!
Questions? Concerns? Please contact the Office of the First Year Experience at firstname.lastname@example.org or 708.293.2153.
If you are transferring to Trinity, you may be a commuter or a residential student. No matter where you stay as a student, FYF 111 is built to serve you. Because of the structure of the program, transfer commuters do not stay on campus for FYF 111, although participation is required for all students.
Are you a transfer student interested in living on campus? Check out Residence Life for upperclassmen living options. When you participate in FYF 111, we’ll spend time talking about how transfers connect quickly in this academic community.
