The Web site is now live and will be continuously updated with important information about Homecoming. Homecoming festivities begin Thursday, Feb. 26 with the "Where's Rowdy?" contest on the 1604 Campus. It will be followed by the Decorating Party for the Homecoming Golf Cart Parade at 8 p.m. at the Convocation Center portico.
On Friday, Feb. 27, make plans to attend the Golf Cart Parade and Rowdy Rampage Fireworks Spectacular. The night event combines a spirit rally, concert, fireworks show and the Homecoming Golf Cart Parade -- all in one at the UTSA track adjacent to the Recreation and Wellness Center, 1604 Campus. There will be music by Orion Experience from New York to start the evening and after the fireworks.
The Saturday, Feb. 28 events will begin with the Roadrunner Remembrance, a new program that will allow the community to remember the members who passed away during the year. Since it is the first time for this event, there will be a special remembrance for those Roadrunners who have passed away since the school's founding.
There will be a Homecoming Reunion Luncheon in the University Center Ballroom on Saturday afternoon. The day will end with the Tailgate Party, the Homecoming men's basketball game and the After Party. The homecoming game will be against the Lamar Cardinals.
Stop by the University Center information desk on the 1604 Campus or the Office of Student Activities at the Downtown Campus to buy a commemorative UTSA Homecoming 2009 t-shirt -- and get ready to support the Roadrunners.
