Jordan Crosby, Trine sophomore informatics major
For sophomore informatics major Jordan Crosby, pursing an education at Trine University means collaborating with professors who really care about him.
"What I like most about Trine is that the faculty is interested in my success," he said. "They really do care about each student and want to help them develop their knowledge, preparing them for the future."
Team that up with Trine′s closely–knit, hometown feeling, and it′s a formula for support that he enjoys. "For me, Trine had the atmosphere I was looking for. It is a small campus with small classrooms where the students can interact with professors. It is easy to talk to the professors about anything, not just school. It also is growing in modern facilities and has a golf course right on campus."
He respects Trine′s academic rigor and the effort by the Department of Mathematics & Informatics to give him its best. "I value a great education, and so far Trine has succeeded in giving me one," he said. "My department is very excited about what they are doing, and is continually looking for ways to improve."
Factor great professors into the reasons Trine works so well for Jordan. "Professor Bill Lipman has made a strong impact on me," he said. "He challenges his students to be intrinsically motivated and that what we earn depends on our own effort. He is very motivational, and I enjoy every day in his class."
The energy on campus keeps him engaged and active. A member of the junior varsity golf team, he also finds time for Circle K and group activities. "I enjoy being part of campus life," he said. "There are so many activities that Student Life schedules that you can attend. It is easy to have a great time with friends, especially when comedians do a show."
