From a Gospel brunch to Afro-Cuban music, to a Farmer's Market, get ready--the Weekend's here. Saturday morning at Trinity University, it's the Trinity Market. It's the city's only University-sponsored Farmer's Market.

"We really focus on Health and Wellness, so most of our vendors offer healthy options in addition to your farmers and ranchers that come out."

That's Trinity's Haley Sayrs.

Another cooler weekend is heading our way and we've found some fun things to do, rain, shine or a mix.

Last year, Trinity University's Board of Trustees unanimously elected their 19th president, Dr. Danny J. Anderson.

Dr. Anderson was previously the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Kansas.  He has won many teaching awards and has had experience as a department chair, vice provost for Academic Affairs, and other administrative positions. Dr. Anderson's academic focus is on Mexican literature and he plans to use that specialty to connect Trinity to San Antonio's Latin American roots.

Over the past week, Trinity University has been dealing with an illness that has spread across campus.

Since September 15, about 80 students and staff have reported suffering from symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
