“Being a Trinity University student has been the cornerstone of my personal and academic growth. In this tight-knit community, I've not only thrived in my studies but also forged enduring friendships with both peers and professors,” says Mackenzie Gasner '23, M’25, an accounting major graduating this December who has plans to continue her studies in Trinity’s Master of Science in Accounting program while interning with KPMG. “I am beyond grateful for the wisdom that Trinity has instilled in me, and I am looking forward to applying these lessons as I embark on the next chapter of my journey, armed with knowledge, resilience, and a deep sense of community. Tiger pride!”

Danny Nguyen ’24, president of the Student Government Association, will speak on behalf of the graduating students, and Betsy Winakur Tontiplaphol, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of English and 2023 Z.T. Scott Award recipient, will give the commencement address.
