It is important your student feels connected to the UTSA community and has a sense of belonging within our Roadrunner family. The Student Union and Campus Recreation provide hang out space for students to connect with one another for studying, working out, or just having fun. We encourage students to learn more about themselves and others through training or cultural programs and events that foster community and reflection.
Campus traditions, programs, and events invite students to come together to connect to UTSA through learning and a shared Roadrunner spirit. The year starts with Roadrunner Days, two weeks of activities to welcome students to campus and introduce them to many different offices across the university. The Family Association Newsletter will provide information for events that are family-friendly and are opportunities to have a shared experience with your student.
