JANA KENNELLY Executive Director, UTSA Alumni Association

October brings the hope of cooler days, and the beginning of homecoming season. Whether it’s been a month or a decade since you’ve been back to UTSA, Homecoming Week is the best way for alumni to re-connect with their alma mater. I hope you will read about all the opportunities to come back to campus.

I’m also excited to invite you to a business leadership talk with Lorenzo Gomez, III.  His book, “The Cilantro Diaries: Lessons from the Most Unlikely Places”, is about how drive, creativity, intelligence and courage can be the most important ingredients to be successful. Be sure to RSVP below. Space will be limited.

Remember the Alumni Association works for you. When you come to any of the Homecoming events, introduce yourself and ask for a UTSA alumni pin. We want to hear your story.

Happy Homecoming Roadrunners!!

COME HOME

 

Alumni, come back to UTSA where it all began. Reconnect with your alma mater through one of these homecoming events. Then cheer on your Roadrunners as we play Rice on Saturday!
