MAY 5, 2022 — The sounds of cheering and honking horns will fill the air as the UTSA Commencement Drive kicks off at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, May 13. One of the university’s newest traditions, the Commencement Drive debuted in 2020, amidst COVID-19 and social distancing measures including remote operations.
It grows each semester. Graduates from the spring and summer 2022 classes and their family and friends are invited to participate in this nostalgic parade around Main Campus.
Graduates are encouraged to decorate their vehicles, wear their regalia and honk their horns to celebrate their achievement with the Roadrunner community. UTSA faculty and staff will line the parade route to celebrate the graduates.
Vehicles will begin gathering at 5 p.m. at the Brackenridge 5 parking lot prior to the parade’s procession through the campus at 5:30 p.m.
Families, friends and pets can take part in the celebration, either by riding with their graduates or viewing the parade from one of the designated viewing areas located in Brackenridge Avenue Lot 1, Ximenes Avenue Lot or Bauerle Road Lot 3.
Out-of-town viewers may watch a livestream of the drive on the @UTSA social media channels. Watch the channels for more details, make plenty of noise and share your videos on social media using #UTSAGrad22 for a chance to be featured.
