Residential or Commuter?
First Time Freshmen
If this is your first time coming to college, you are either living on campus in our residence halls or at home with your family. Students who live on campus are “residential” and students who drive in are “commuters.” FYF 101 is required for both residential and commuter freshmen transitioning to Trinity. As you can see from the schedule for FYF 101, this program is an intensive 5-day program – it’s essentially a retreat for the incoming class to form community and understand Trinity’s mission. For this reason, freshmen commuters are required to stay on campus for FYF 101 – we think this is so important that we do not charge you extra for the 5-day stay!

Please contact the Office of the First Year Experience, with questions or concerns. We can be reached at email@example.com or 708.293.2153.
If you are transferring to Trinity, you may be a commuter or a residential student. FYF 111 is built to serve both commuters and residential students. And, because of the structure of the program, transfer commuters do not stay on campus for FYF 111, though all transfers are required to participate.
Are you a transfer student that is still interested in living on campus? Check out Residence Life for upperclass living options. When you participate in FYF, we’ll spend time talking about how transfers connect quickly in this academic community.
