Brute Squad

Who throws the best tailgating parties? The BruteSquad! But who are they, and what do they do?

They are a group of UTSA College of Engineering (COE) advisory council members, and others, interested in improving the student experience at UTSA, while having a ton of fun. To do that, the BruteSquad has the best tailgating parties before each UTSA football game and is ready to prove that UTSA engineers have the most fun.

Each game, the BruteSquad likes to showcase the work of different student organizations from the College of Engineering, like the race cars, concrete canoes, or winners of the COE catapult competition. The tailgating party is located in a great location near Sunset Station and any students wearing College of Engineering shirts can attend for free.

Last football season, their goal wasn’t just to have fun but also to raise money for engineering and student groups. The BruteSquad raised more than $18,500 and donated the funds to the various UTSA Engineering and Spirit groups.

“BruteSquad at its core is about supporting the UTSA engineering program and building the overall student experience. We showcase a different engineering student group each week, but all engineers are welcome. All we ask is they wear their UTSA Engineering T-shirts to get in. Come aim to prove engineers at UTSA really do have the most fun,” said David Spencer, President, Texas Intrepid Ventures.
