Jasmine Cosby

Jasmine Cosby ’12 is a Trinity sophomore majoring in nursing. Deciding to become a nurse was almost second nature to Jasmine because she has other health care professionals in her immediate family. While a student at Largo (Maryland) High School, she considered schools such as Johns Hopkins, Virginia Commonwealth and other area universities, but was concerned about the costs and did not want to begin her career in debt. She was also apprehensive about the large classes and being known as “a number” in a large school.

During her senior year, Trinity recruiters visited her high school. They told her that the small, private school had a great faculty that really gets to know their students. Jasmine applied to several schools, but in the end, she chose Trinity. Quality and affordability were factors in her decision and as she approaches the halfway point in her college experience, she knows Trinity was the right choice for her. “I am really learning. Teachers are a big help and stick with you until you get it,” says Jasmine.

Jasmine knows firsthand the impact that donors have on Trinity, as part of her financial aid award includes a work-study job in the Development office. She says of Trinity’s generous donors, “Because of their support I am able to earn a degree that will enable me to have a career, not just a job.”
