WELCOME TO TRINITY UNIVERSITY
Message from Esther Esparza
My name is Esther Esparza (she/her) and I am thrilled to be welcoming you to our Trinity community. I am the Assistant Director for Orientation Programs in the office of Student Involvement.
From Tiger Takeoff to Welcome Weekend, your orientation experience at Trinity is going to set you up for success both inside and outside of the classroom. You’ll get the opportunity to connect early with staff, professors, and your peers, and learn about all the campus resources on campus that are here to support you throughout your journey at Trinity.
At Trinity, you matter, and there are many people that can’t wait to go on this journey with you.
From all of us at Trinity, welcome to the family!
