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.
