Josh Wolf
Comedian Josh Wolf may not come across as the collegiate type, but he totally spent some time studying here in San Antonio. Okay, we can’t confirm that, but it is in fact true that the funnyman graduated from Trinity University. His work as an actor, comedian and writer must have resulted in him not suffering from any debt due to the prestigious university.

Travis Scott
Though he never graduated, the University of Texas at San Antonio students take a lot of pride in calling Travis Scott one of their own. The Houston native briefly attended the local UT campus before dropping out his sophomore year to focus on his rap career. Anyone familiar with his discography and A-list status (in part due to his being Kylie Jenner’s baby daddy) knows it was well worth it.

Alice Walton
As the daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton and Helen Walton, Alice Louise Walton probably didn’t need to college. But, it was probably better that she did, considering that she has an estimated net worth of $47 billion (yes, with a B), making her the second-richest woman in the world. She studied economics and finance, and graduated from Trinity University.

David Robinson
Though he famously attended the United States Naval Academy,  gaining him the nickname of the “Admiral,” Robinson decided to spend some time studying in San Antonio following his NBA career with the Spurs. In 2011, the basketball legend earned a Master of Arts in Administration, with a concentration in organizational development. Robinson previously said he wanted to better “understand how businesses work and how to build them.”

Gibby Haynes
Before leading the Butthole Surfers, Gibby Haynes was quite the impressive undergrad while attending Trinity University. While there, he was captain of the basketball team, president of his fraternity and must have done well in his classes due to his being named Accounting Student of the Year. Nerd alert!
