The event provides fall graduates the opportunity to make all of their commencement purchases at one time. Grad Fest is held each fall and spring semester at UTSA.

"The Alumni Association is proud to present such an opportunity to our graduating seniors," said Jane Burton, director of alumni programs. "This is a time of celebration and excitement, and we want our graduates to know we are here to help them take care of their needs at such a significant time in their lives."
Students will have the opportunity to speak with campus representatives from Army ROTC, Career Services, the Graduate School and the Graduation Coordination office. There are also many services for future alumni to take advantage of including buying auto, home and property insurance, student loan consolidation and information on test preparation courses.
Students who purchase a diploma during Grad Fest will save $12 on shipping and handling. Also, it is the last opportunity for students to purchase an official UTSA ring with guaranteed graduation delivery.
