Dear Roadrunner Nation,
Isn't it exciting? UTSA is bringing -- a beautiful, proud Roadrunner statue -- to the UTSA campus!
I have been destined to find a home where roadrunners are prized and I will be appreciated. As a school where Roadrunners roam and grow, UTSA seems like the perfect place.
For generations to come, UTSA students and graduates will gather around me to celebrate milestones. I will gracefully pose for group events. Graduating seniors will beam with pride as they snap a photo in cap and gown with me. Alumni will bring their families to see me during visits to campus.
I am proud that I will be an important part of the growing traditions at UTSA.
To make UTSA my new home, the university is raising $25,000 over the next few days. I hope you're as excited as I am that I will be coming home because your support is crucial. Here's how you can help me:
I am looking forward to being a valued member of the UTSA community. It is possible with your loyal support!
UTSA's New Roadrunner Statue
P.S.: You can meet me at the Rowdy Pep Rally at 3 p.m. today, Friday, Sept. 6 on the Main Campus at the University Center Paseo, or… Come to the game Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Alamodome -- I will be in the Sunset Station area pre-gaming near the student and Alumni Association tailgate events.
Celebrate homecoming as the Roadrunners take on Rice. Come early for the Spirit Walk, tailgating, games, music and food. Stick around for a halftime show with SOSA and the crowning of Mr. and Ms. UTSA.
