What We Do
From distinguished lectures to senior events and beyond, Student Ambassadors are constantly engaged with the campus throughout the year. In addition to campus life involvement, Ambassadors help lead the Student Philanthropy program. They educate students about the role that donations have in making their Trinity experience possible. They also encourage students to become philanthropists and support Trinity University with a donation to the area of their choice (scholarships, academic departments, athletic teams or student organizations).
Future Alumni Week
Each November, Student Ambassadors hold Thank A Giver (T.A.G.) Week to educate their fellow students about how alumni, parent, and friend donor help make a difference at Trinity. During T.A.G. Week, tags are hung all over campus indicating that a donor helped make these things possible with their gift to Trinity. The Student Ambassadors also host tables during the week to give students the opportunity to write a thank you letter.
The Great Pumpkin Party
The annual Great Pumpkin Party event hosted by Trinity University Student Ambassadors invites students to decorate pumpkins while making connections with Trinity alumni!
Sophomore Ice Cream Social
The Sophomore Ice Cream social hosted by the Trinity University Student Ambassadors invites sophomores to meet alumni in a casual atmosphere and celebrate the halfway mark at Trinity University.
Each October, close to a thousand Trinity alumni return to campus for a weekend to catch up with their classmates and Trinity. The Ambassadors have the opportunity to visit with alumni at all of the reunions and other events that take place during the weekend.
The Distinguished Lecture Series
Through Trinity’s Distinguished Lecture Series, students and the San Antonio community have the opportunity to attend free lectures by influential individuals of diverse backgrounds and opinions. Past lecturers include John Glenn, former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, and documentary filmmaker Ken Burns. The Ambassadors participate as ushers and enjoy the privilege of attending the post-lecture reception with the speaker.
After four years as Trinity students, our seniors love to kick back, relax, and enjoy their final weeks in style. The Ambassadors host several events for them, including the Casino Tower Party and the Last Great Reception.
The Trinity Class Ring captures the proud achievement of graduating from Trinity and being linked forever to our great institution. The Ring Ceremony is held in the Chapel during Spring Family Weekend. This is a memorable event at which your family and friends can witness you receiving your ring. Your ring will sleep in the Tower the night before the ceremony.
Policy Maker Breakfast
The Policy Maker Breakfast program is a series of breakfast seminars available to Trinity’s Business Affiliate and University communities. The series hosts eminent policy makers from the fields of journalism, politics, and business. Past speakers include Christiane Amanpour, Scott McClellan, Tom Ridge, and former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo.
The Outstanding Young Alumnus/Alumna Luncheon
Ambassadors work at this luncheon honoring a young alumnus/a whose achievements in their profession or chosen field and in service to the community set a standard of excellence worth of recognition by the University and the Alumni association. The individual must have graduated within the past 15 years.
The President's Dinner
At the annual President’s Dinner, members help represent the current Trinity student body to supporters of the University.
Making Connections is a series of networking events that allow current students to meet with alumni, strengthening Trinity’s alumni network and giving students the chance to learn about life after college.
