(Sept. 15, 2017) -- You’ve learned how to get around campus and you’ve got your class schedule memorized. It’s time to show off your UTSA pride. Here are a few easy ways to get into the Roadrunner spirit.
Show off your UTSA colors.
Decking yourself out in orange and blue is practically the campus dress code and it’s the surest way to show your UTSA pride. Wherever you go, you’ll see other ‘Runners who bleed orange and blue, and you’ll feel right at home.
It’s easy. Simply open your hand with your palm facing away from you. Curl your middle three fingers toward the center of your palm, leaving your thumb and little finger upright. Do it whenever you hear someone shout, “Birds Up!”
Support the teams.
You don’t have to be part of the UTSA Cheer or Dance teams to root for the Roadrunners. When the Orange and Blue make crushing plays, score touchdowns or hit home runs, ’Runners are always there in the stands cheering them on.
Sing the UTSA Fight Song.
“Go, Roadrunners, Go! On to vict’ry with all your might.
Fight, Roadrunners, Fight! For the Blue and the Orange and the White.”
Get that down and you’re halfway there. There’s no stronger way to show your pride than by singing the UTSA fight song with your fellow ‘Runners. Join in when the Spirit of San Antonio plays it and sing loud and proud!
Learn the Roadrunner Creed and the Alma Mater.
Developed in 2010 with input and support from students, faculty and staff, the Roadrunner Creed signifies UTSA’s principles of academic honesty, respect for others and being a positive force in the community.
Composed in 1981 by Alan E. Craven, professor emeritus and former dean of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, with music by Clarence J. Stuessy, retired professor and former chair of the Department of Music, it unites generations of Roadrunners together in a beautiful harmony celebrating all that makes UTSA and being a Roadrunner so special.
There’s nothing that makes you feel more like a Roadrunner than joining a chorus of voices in singing the UTSA Alma Mater, “Hail UTSA.”
Besides, you’re going to need to know it for Commencement so get to singin’…
From our hills of oak and cedar
To the Alamo,
Voices raised will echo
As, in song, our praises flow.
Hail Alma Mater!
Through the years our loyalty will grow.
