  • Hometown: Houston, Texas
  • Alma Mater: Southwestern University
  • Year I Joined the Trinity Office of Admissions: 2013
  • Students I work with: Greater Houston Area
  • What was your favorite college course?  I loved the diversity of my coursework in college, but one course that really challenged me to "think outside the box" was a Raku class that I took one summer.  I was truly a terrible potter, but loved the tactile learning, cultural appreciation and the patience of my instructor.  What a treat to take courses outside of your field of study!
  • What is one thing that you love about San Antonio?  I love that San Antonio has the opportunities of a large city, but the accessibility of a small town.  Not only can you get around easily, but people want to connect with you and find commonalities.
  • What is your best college search advice in three sentences or less?
    1. Be true to yourself and what you need. 
    2. Take all advice with a grain of salt. 
    3. Go with your gut. It will usually serve you well!

  • Advice for your College Search: See as many campuses as possible.  There is not substitute for walking on the campus, seeing the classrooms and getting a feel for the campus life.  It was either my second or third step on Trinity's campus before I knew it was the place for me!

  • Favorite College Course: Tie between Persuasion and Individual in World Politics
  • Students I Work With: California

  • One Thing I Love About San Antonio: I love driving a bit north of the city into the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
  • Best College Search Advice: Visit as many schools as you can and try to sit in on classes. Seeing the type of students in the classrooms, as well as the student and faculty interaction was the most insightful part of my campus visits.

Associate Director of Admissions
Cooridnator of International Admission
kindel [dot] hollis [at] trinity [dot] edu

  • Hometown: Carrollton, Texas
  • Alma Mater: Trinity University - Class of 2007
  • Year I Joined the Trinity Office of Admissions: 2007
  • Favorite College Course: How to pick one? Sentimentalism - We studied predominantly female authors of 19th Century American Literature.  Great books, one of my favorite professors, and a small group of outspoken students.
  • Students I Work With: Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington D.C., West Virginia, Wisconsin, Asia, India, and Oceania
  • Favorite Trinity Experience: The Tower Climb - both times around.  At Trinity, students climb the tower as part of New Student Orientation and then once again during Senior Disorientation.  As a first-year, it was a fun experience with new friends, a great view, and I met people from all over the world on the spiral staircase.  As a senior, I had the chance to sign a brick, chat with old friends, and see the amazing view one more time!
  • One Thing I Love About San Antonio: The food! I love discovering new restaurants and exploring different areas of the city. There is always a new "hole-in-the-wall" to uncover or intriguing cuisine to try.
  • Best College Application Advice: Make sure your essay is something you really care about. You only have one essay to write, so make sure it is about you and tells me something no one else but you could share. And a little spell check never hurts either...

hillary [dot] everts [at] trinity [dot] edu

  • Hometown: Fort Worth, Texas
  • Alma Mater: Trinity University - Class of 2014
  • Year I Joined the Trinity Office of Admissions: 2014
  • Students I Work With: Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas (San Antonio), Transfer Students (lastnames that begin with A through L)
  • What was your favorite college course and why? Papermaking with Jon Lee. It was a hands-on learning experience that allowed me to slow down, tap into my creativity and work with my hands in a new medium.
  • What is your favorite Trinity experience?  One of my favorite Trinity experiences came early on in my college career. The New Student Orientation week takes place at the beginning of your first incoming fall and is a time dedicated solely to first-year students. No one else is on campus and you have the chance to really connect with the people on your residential life hall, other members of your class and navigate this new thing called college life through fun activities. It was an awesome start to my Trinity experience!
  • What is one thing that you love about San Antonio?  The potential for adventure! San Antonio is filled with so much history, culture, flavor and character that it is easy to find yourself trying something new at any given moment.
  • What is your best college search advice in three sentences or less?  Don't be afraid to reach out to people! There are so many people dedicated to making sure you find what you need in a school so ask all of your questions, visit the campus and talk with the people you'd be living/working with. We want you to find the best place for you! 

Jesse Gamble '15

Admissions Counselor
jesse [dot] gamble [at] trinity [dot] edu

  • Hometown: San Jose, Costa Rica
  • Alma Mater: Trinity University Class of 2015
  • Year I joined Trinity Office of Admissions: 2015
  • Students I work with: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Texas (Austin Metro Area, Central Texas, Costal Bend, Panhandle, South Texas Border, and West Texas), Wisconsin, and Mexico
  • Favorite College Course: This is hard, because I enjoyed so many, but I would have to say History of American Sport, with Dr. Tingle. This is a class where I got to combine two very unique interests of mine, with my favorite professor as my instructor. We learned about the societal significance of Croquet, how the Harlem Globetrotters were not actually from Harlem, and how Title IX impacts the world on a daily basis. Medieval Europe was a close second though.
  • Favorite Trinity Experience: My friend group and the diversity that was present in my close friend group. I had friends who grew up in Bhutan, in Ecuador, in Tanzania, in Ghana, and the different parts of Texas as well, like Galveston, Houston, and Dallas. Trinity brought together this incredibly unique and diverse group of people and allowed us to value and bond over our differences, and create lasting experiences and memories.
  • One Thing I love about San Antonio: I love the sense of community and how that sense of community and family carries over supporting all the sports teams here in San Antonio. Obviously the Spurs have an extremely strong fan base, but the other sports teams like the Rampage, the Stars, the Scorpions and the Missions are truly supported by the whole city. There is a sense of community that is at any sporting event, and by cheering for those teams, you become part of this family.
  • Best College Search Advice: Think about who you are and what you want before you begin the process. With this, research plenty of colleges and universities, and find out what you find appealing about each one. This will give you an idea as to where to begin your search.

  • Students I Work With: Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Texas (Austin), Transfers (lastnames that begin with M to Z)
  • What was your favorite college course and why?  I really enjoyed my German Cinema course. I took French all throughout high school and so other than a few things I picked up listening to my grandma, I didn't know any German! However, I took the course even though I majored in Biology and minored in Sociology just out of pure curiosity and ended up loving learning about German culture and comparing their film culture with that of the United Stated. I also enjoyed the discussions that this course produced.
  • What is your favorite Trinity experience?  My favorite Trinity experience was Christmas on Oakmont. I love that they line the street with luminarias and then have something on display in each of the houses (my favorite was the year there were gingerbread houses!), and of course the holiday food is always delicious!
  • What is one thing that you love about San Antonio?  I love that there is always something going on. Some of my favorites are Fiesta, First Friday, and Siclovia. Its fun to be walking around the city and find new events going on
  • What is your best college search advice in three sentences or less?  Get on campus and talk to as many students and professors as you can. Pictures of campus are great but being on campus and interacting with people helps you find where you fit!

  • What is one thing that you love about San Antonio?  There is a strong sense of community among the people of San Antonio. We are united on many fronts; from the Spurs to Rampage games, Fiesta to the Rodeo and Siclovia to the Arts District, people in San Antonio are always on the move. They are simply friendlier than other places I have lived.
