The Story...

Thank You Rowdy front Thank You Rowdy back

'Thank You Rowdy' has a special mission in Student Affairs - to travel across UTSA recognizing the good work of staff members.

Within the Division of Student Affairs, 'Thank You Rowdy' is presented from one Student Affairs staff member to another in recognition and appreciation of work done well - taking extra assignments to provide support, offering unsolicited assistance or completing tasks in a unique way.

Whatever the situation, contributions like this are made every day and 'Thank You Rowdy' helps us recognize them.

'Thank you Rowdy' reflects UTSA's spirit of community and reminds us to remember it takes everyone to make UTSA a great place to work and to learn.
