I am proud to announce that Trinity University is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Commencement is a word with multiple definitions. Commencement means the beginning of something, or it could be a synonym for a ceremony in which degrees are conferred to graduating students. At Trinity University, we held commencement for 502 students on Saturday, May 12. Joyous smiles and, in many cases, tears of happiness marked this special day. And just a few days later, on Thursday, May 17, we held a special Commencement for three graduating seniors who had been away competing in national tennis tournaments. The commencements created moments that embraced both definitions as each graduate opened doors to new beginnings and a journey filled with promise.

Trinity University is making great strides in building a campus culture in which students in all degree programs are challenged to bridge the gap between theory and practice–or, more precisely, between academic inquiry and real-world decision-making.

Trinity places great emphasis on supporting academic student success. The transition from high school to college is not always seamless. Mary Stuart Hunter, a national expert on first-year experience and student transitions, noted that "The first college year is not grade 13. For new students, college presents a foreign set of norms, traditions, and rituals, and a new language and environment."

Trinity University hosted the 2018 President's Dinner on Feb. 15, 2018 at the Weston Riverwalk Hotel. The event honored Trinity donors and celebrated the University's 75 years in San Antonio and the people who made it possible. Below is President's Anderson speech.
