This exhibit will explore what contributed to the dissipation of the Trinity University Marching Band, eventually leading to its complete removal from football games. This once-thriving organization began to diminish in the late 1960s and the 1970s, and President Calgaard's arrival in 1979 served as the final nail in the coffin.
This exhibit will examine the impact of Ashley Farrimond in her years playing Trinity volleyball from 2001-2004. This four time All-American holds many records within the Trinity University Record books and has received multiple awards for her successes. Not only did Farrimond have a hand in the success of Trinity Volleyball from ‘01-’04 but she continues to affect it with her mastery of the setting position and the traits that allowed her to be a successful leader. She accomplished great success through rewards and titles; however, the greatest of them was being able to leave an imprint in history and contribute to the successes of Trinity Volleyball today.

The Trinity University Tennis program was a Division 1 powerhouse for decades, but that all changed in 1991. The school board decided to shift the team to Division 3 to join the rest of Trinity sports teams who had all shifted previously. The team was no longer the same tennis giant that took on big state schools across the country for the national championship year after year. The shift to a lower division was not completely negative for the program or the school. There were many positives that came out of the move to Division 3 that gave the program a new identity.
This exhibit explores the success of the 1968-69 Trinity men's basketball team and what made them so successful. The 1969 Team was likely the best in school history. Competing at the Divison 1 level in the Southland Conference, they finished with a 19-5 record and qualified for the NCAA tournament.
