Trinity University’s official magazine seeks to foster a sense of connectedness among all members of the University community, including alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, donors, and friends.
Trinity magazine engages audiences in current events and issues on campus and around the world and reflects the culture, personality, and historic values of the institution. Through establishing a bond between the University and its constituents, the magazine fosters a spirit of philanthropy and service.
The first publication of the official alumni magazine was in July 1947; thereafter, it was published quarterly in January, April, July, and October. The magazine has since transformed into a biannual collection of stories and articles with a strong alumni focus. Production is managed by an advisory board that engages in collaborative conversation about magazine content for upcoming issues. This board, comprised of faculty and staff from throughout the campus, suggests story and content ideas and crafts a comprehensive theme based on group discussion. Board members, in turn, act as eyes and ears to the campus, ensuring suggestions for magazine content cover multiple aspects of alumni participation, campus life past and present, and community outreach.
Since 2015, magazine production has been led by Jeanna Goodrich Balreira ’08, Trinity’s Director for Creative & Editorial Services. Under Balreira, the magazine has brought a world of diverse themes to life, including female entrepreneurship, Tigers in entertainment, and how Tigers respond to adversity using the “Spirit of Trinity.”
