This exhibit lays out the history of Trinity University's athletic program during the NCAA division series creation and how that change affected the university, from 1960-Present day.Trinity is typically known as a small private university with high academic standards and a fairly decent athletic program centered around the Division III competition. Contrary to the current image, Trinity used to be a very competitive "Division I" program, playing teams such as Texas A&M and Air Force, and was even known as a party school. Trinity's image began to change around 1973 when the NCAA decided to divide what was the "Major School" and "Small School" brackets and divide them into the Division I,II,III that we now know today.
