(Aug. 23, 2012) -- Continuing a tradition initiated in 2002, UTSA will host the 2012 Fall Convocation ceremony for incoming freshmen at 9:30 a.m., Monday, Aug. 27, in the Convocation Center on the Main Campus. Luis Alberto Urrea, author of the Freshman Common Reading, "The Devil's Highway," will deliver the keynote address.

Because of seating limitations in the Convocation Center, faculty and staff are encouraged to watch the ceremony online via live webcast. Also, all faculty, staff and students are invited to the Meet and Greet with Urrea from 1 to 2:30 p.m. that afternoon in the University Center Retama Auditorium (2.02.02).

"We know the UTSA community is excited to welcome the Class of 2016," said John Kaulfus, associate dean of students. "We encourage everyone to watch the Fall Convocation online and attend other Roadrunner Days events in person, particularly the President's Picnics and BBQ on Wednesday, Aug. 29.

"Also, please wear the Welcome Class of 2016 buttons that are being distributed throughout campus this week, so we can show our newest Roadrunners that we are here to support their success."
