San Antonio

San Antonio is often referred to as having a small-town feel, even though it is the seventh largest city in America.

Trinity’s campus is a stone’s throw from the heart of downtown San Antonio, which allows the Trinity community to experience everything from art events like First Friday to Fiesta celebrations to farmer’s markets at the Pearl. Aside from the downtown areas, San Antonio is home to many teams, attractions, and events. Professional sports teams such as the five-time NBA champion Spurs, the Missions (a Double-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres), the NASL Scorpions, and the WNBA Stars, and events like the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo and Fiesta bring millions of people to the city to celebrate local culture. SeaWorld, and Six Flags Fiesta Texas are fun attractions for the entire family.

San Antonio is one of the fastest growing cities in America with a booming economy thanks to a demand for medical, biomedical and biotechnology, energy, manufacturing, tourism, technology, and military sectors. And, our close proximity to Mexico adds both to our economy and engagement with the world.    

We have pride for our city, and while we may not know all 1,144,646 residents, it doesn’t stop us from feeling like everyone is a friend.
