More than 5,000 new students attend UTSA Fall Convocation at Main Campus
(Aug. 26, 2014) -- Approximately 5,000 new UTSA undergraduate students gathered at the Fall Convocation ceremonies on Aug. 25 to kick off their first year at UTSA. The ceremony, an official part of the annual UTSA Roadrunner Days, was conducted at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Convocation Center on the Main Campus to accommodate the large number of incoming freshmen and transfer students.
Running Aug. 22-29, Roadrunner Days events and activities give students an opportunity to take part in time-honored UTSA traditions and connect with UTSA resources.
At Fall Convocation, UTSA officials welcomed the students, introduced them to university traditions and encouraged them to graduate in four years. The students also practiced the Roadrunner Creed, UTSA Fight Song and Alma Mater.
This year's speakers included UTSA President Ricardo Romo, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs John Frederick, College of Business Associate Dean Lisa Montoya and UTSA Student Government President Zack Dunn. A free luncheon for the entire UTSA community was provided on the Convocation Center east lawn from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
UTSA PlayFair was presented at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Campus Recreation Center. The team-building event immersed students in UTSA's vibrant student life. In the sessions, students learned about registered UTSA student organizations, played a variety games and met fellow students.
