Celebrating 150 Years

For 150 years, Trinity University has transformed challenge into opportunity. Resilient, creative, and enterprising, we have redefined the liberal arts. We are heirs to a dynamic past and stewards of a promising future, where Trinity’s spirit will remain in motion.

Heirs of the past. Stewards of the future.

Originally founded in 1869 in Tehuacana, Texas, Trinity's storied journey has included three cities and three moves, yet the University has remained resilient through every challenge it has faced. As we look to the future, we can do so as confident, curious catalysts who answer questions and question answers.

The University’s accomplishments and those of generations of our graduates are worth noting in an authentic and celebratory way. I encourage you to get involved and be part of this exciting milestone in Trinity’s history. My goal is to see as many as many people as possible engaged in the planning, preparation, and celebration in a way that strengthens the Trinity community.

– President Danny J. Anderson


Over the past year, Trinity has been making plans to celebrate the University’s 150th anniversary.

Trinity University extends a sincere "Thank You" to the members of the 150th Anniversary Steering Committee, co-chaired by Angela Breidenstein ’91, ’92 and Jacob Tingle ’95. The Committee's work in engaging the Trinity community has made this celebration a reality.
