Discover what it's like to be a Roadrunner at UTSA Day
(March 16, 2017) -- Future Roadrunners will get a glimpse into life at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), Saturday, April 1 during UTSA Day. From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Main Campus will be bustling with activities and information sessions for prospective and admitted students and their families to learn about academics and campus life.
Aspiring students will learn about UTSA's top-tier academic colleges and programs directly from current faculty and students. They can attend workshops and fairs to receive information on admission requirements and financial aid, student services, and the more than 350 student organizations. Admitted students can check their admissions application status and drop off required documents. Representatives will be on hand to go over class options and students can sign up for summer orientation.
Students can also see what it's like to live like a Roadrunner and tour four of UTSA's five on-campus residential housing communities. They can also explore the Campus Recreation, a 117,000-square-foot center where UTSA students run, lift weights, play basketball and even climb a 54-foot rockwall.
Lunch options will include the Rowdy Curbside food truck, Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks, Steak 'n Shake, Subway, Taco Taco Café and Roadruner Café.
After UTSA Day, students can stay on campus and enjoy additional events, starting with Rowdy Movie Feature showing "Hidden Figures." UTSA Greek Week Lip Sync Competition follows the movie. As the sun goes down, UTSA Underground begins. Thirteen bands and six artists connected to UTSA will take over The Tunnels and University Center lawn on Main Campus for a free night of entertainment from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m.
Free event parking for UTSA Day is available in unmarked spaces in the Brackenridge Ave. Lot 1 and Lot 2 (BK1, BK2).
