Payden Academic Center Dedication

The new Payden Academic Center is complete and the Dedication Ceremony and Ribbon Cutting on June 4, 2016, was a joyous day of celebration! This beautiful new building features state-of-the-art science and nursing labs and classrooms and Trinity  welcomed students into the Payden Academic Center for orientation sessions in August 2016.

Trinity is grateful to the Payden Family, and particularly to Joan A. Payden, Class of 1953, whose generosity led the campaign to create the new academic center. Please help our students continue in their quest to advance their fields. Contribute now to the campaign for the Payden Academic Center.

The construction of the Academic Center started in 2014, and was a wonder to watch. Check out this time lapse of the Payden Academic Center Construction.
