La Despedida Graduation Ceremony

La Despedida, which means "farewell," stands more on soul than ceremony. The 10th annual graduation event celebrates the educational accomplishments of Latino students graduating from UTSA. Conducted in both English and Spanish, La Despedida is steeped in San Antonio culture with a fajita dinner, mariachis and live music by Monica y Grupo Fuerte. La Despedida was created in 1996 to foster awareness of the impact cultural background has on education at UTSA.
