    TRINITY UNIVERSITY EXPERIENCE

    San Antonio has similar weather compared to Vietnam. It is also one of the biggest cities in the US. This will be helpful for job opportunities. The Accounting department at Trinity is well-known with the ratio of students having a job before graduation fairly high.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Fairly heavy especially if you want to double major. However, teachers are always available for any questions about the material. I think hard work does pay off. It is not like it is impossible. The professors also try to keep up with the skills that companies are looking for and improve their syllabus accordingly.
