by Kale Ridge '21
Trinity University has been recognized in College Consensus’ list of the top 50 alumni networks for 2019. Finishing at No. 33, Trinity University and its almost 30,000 alumni are accompanied by institutions such as Princeton University, University of Chicago, and Carnegie Mellon in College Consensus’ ranking of alumni networks.
These comprehensive standings serve as a tool for prospective students to compare their top college choices alongside other schools in the U.S. This ranking of alumni networks is designed to help prospective students recognize the value of a strong alumni network—not only for their college career, but well beyond graduation as well.
“Through the work of our incredibly loyal alumni volunteer base, our sagacious alumni board members, and our passionately committed staff, the Trinity network is strong,” says Ryan Finnelly, senior director for Alumni Relations. “Our young and future alumni programming has created pathways for alumni to invest in students, and students reap the benefits of an active association. Learning TUgether initiatives such as webinars, podcasts, and Trinity on Tour cultivate lifelong learning opportunities. Alumni Weekend as well as the hundreds of regional chapter events that occur annually throughout the world demonstrate a 150-year history of caring for our Tiger alumni.”
College Consensus ranks U.S. colleges and universities by combining data from the most respected college ranking publications and the most reliable student reviews online to create the Publisher Rating and the Student Review Rating, respectively. Trinity averaged a Publisher Rating of 77.4 and a Student Review Rating of 74.2, giving it a combined score of 75.8. By comparison, The University of Texas at Austin scored 74.5.
