Trinity University Area Apartments for Rent(hide college information)
In 1869, three small Cumberland Presbyterian colleges that suffered financially during the Civil War banded together to form Trinity University. The school was originally located in Tehuacana, Texas. In 1902, it moved to Waxahachie. After another move closer to San Antonio, Trinity University finally established their current location in Midtown San Antonio in 1952.
Although its beginnings were somewhat rocky, today Trinity University is a highly-respected private liberal arts institution. The Princeton Review included Trinity in its 2014 list of the Best 378 Colleges, and was ranked first for the western region in US News & World Report‘s 2014 “Regional University Rankings.” It is also considered one of the best values for a private college. Trinity has six degree programs with 42 majors and 57 minors.
