Student yearbook captures snapshots of campus
Home / Memories / Mirage
Collage of Mirage publications and yearbook office

In the early 1900s, photography became readily available, and Trinity made the decision to start producing producing a student yearbook.

Students planned to issue the inaugural edition, called the Corral, in 1911, but were unable to secure sufficient financial backing to complete the project. When it appeared a year later in 1912 as the Mirage (perhaps a pun on the previous failure), the yearbook included class histories, fictional essays, and a section on campus humor, along with extensive photographs.

Today, the Mirage remains a student-led production, with student representatives from across campus exercising their creativity and passion for campus, athletic, and academic life at Trinity.
