President Eighmy to host meet and greets for UTSA students, faculty and staff

(Sept. 26, 2017) – University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) President Taylor Eighmy would like to get to know more UTSA students, faculty and staff. He’s inviting students to ‘Pizza with the Prez’ and faculty and staff to ‘Tacos with Taylor,’ casual meet and greets that are scheduled throughout the semester.

“The students, faculty and staff at UTSA are one of its greatest assets,” Eighmy said. “I’m eager to meet more of them as I continue to get to know the university.”

The first ‘Pizza with the Prez’ was Sept. 26 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the University Center Ski Lodge (UC 1.01.00) on the UTSA Main Campus. Students dropped by, have a slice of pizza and introduce themselves to their new president.

Next, President Eighmy will chat with Roadrunners at the Food Court Commons Area in the Frio Street Building on the Downtown Campus, Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Then, on Wednesday, Nov. 28 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., he returns to the Main Campus to share pizza with students in the Sombrilla.

UTSA faculty and staff will have their chance to chat with President Eighmy at ‘Tacos with Taylor,’ where they can ask him a question and share their vision for the university.

‘Tacos with Taylor’ is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Oct. 4 at the Main Building ground floor lobby, Oct. 20 at the Food Court Commons Area in the Frio Street Building on the Downtown Campus. It returns to the Main Campus on Nov. 2 at the Biotechnology, Science and Engineering Building atrium.  On Dec. 1, the final event of the semester will be held at the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures at the Hemisfair Campus.
