Founded in 1869, Trinity University is a private liberal arts and sciences institution situated in San Antonio, TX. Trinity is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church and offers undergrad degrees in 47 academic majors. All freshmen must take a First-Year Experience Program which is a 6-credit program where students meet to hear guest speakers, take part in student conferences, or meet in the library for help with research. During the school year, all students are treated to free nachos and agua fresca. For a break from campus, Trinity is a short drive from the attractions of downtown San Antonio including the Alamo and River Walk.
Here's the truth: Trinity University is an overlooked, academically solid liberal-arts college with a lingering, somewhat-deserved reputation as being filled with upper class, suburbanite, WASP-y Texans. While some students fit the bill, there are also plenty of out-of-staters, international students, and middle-class kids on scholarships (like me!)
The academic flexibility and rigor is a big draw, as well as the small class sizes, bountiful internships and undergraduate research opportunities (and being in the heart of San Antonio doesn't hurt either.)

Trinity University has challenged me as a student, an athlete, and a young adult. Throughout my experiences thus far, I have learned life-long lessons and developed friendships and connections with individuals who will be an integral part of my future. I am grateful to attend such a prestigious university that offers academic rigor and opportunity to all of its students and alumni.
