Why You Chose Trinity:

I chose Trinity for the obvious reasons: the beautiful campus; its location in San Antonio, a diverse and exciting city; and its national reputation of academic excellence. However, more than those outstanding attributes, I knew Trinity was right for me because of the people I met there. The coaches who I will be running for have gone out of their way to make me feel included and special, from personally attending my high school meets to giving guidance on summer training for me. Every time I have been on campus, some one from administration has gone out of their way to greet me and talk to me about my future. The enthusiasm I sense from other students is palpable. I am so looking forward to being a Tiger!
