(Sept. 4, 2013) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio is accustomed to setting and breaking records. The campus will be alive with spirit to support 2013 Roadrunners Football the week of each home game. Game week flags and banners will be distributed on Tuesdays and the week will end with Rowdy Rally each Friday afternoon.
Rowdy Rally will begin at 3 p.m., Friday, Sept. 6. Rowdy the Roadrunner will charge through the University Center Paseo, followed by the UTSA Marching Band. This week's game is 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Alamodome. Remember to "whiteout" and wear your bright whites for this game against Oklahoma State.
The campus will be showered in blue and orange, from UTSA shirts, signs, flags and delicious Orange Crush ice cream floats for the Rowdy Rally. The campus will roar with pride as the football team parades through the Paseo and the University Center, and then loads the buses to go downtown.
"The Rowdy Rally is a way for our students to show support for Roadrunners football," said Zack Dunn, president of the Student Government Association. "It builds excitement for UTSA as a community as we all prepare to face our opponents at the Alamodome the following day."
At the rally, UTSA Athletics will have a booth set up with tailgating information and ticket sales. Spoon and Raven from the Wild 105.7 Spoon Morning Show will broadcast live from the rally.
>> During the Sept. 6 Rowdy Rally, the University community will get its first in-person glimpse of the thousand-pound Rowdy the Roadrunner statue that will be coming to the UTSA Main Campus. The public is invited to view the statue in person, take photos with it and make a donation to Bring Rowdy Home.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
