ANDREW WATERMAN '03 Board President, Alumni Association

2018 is off and running and so are we as we prepare for our 34th Diploma Dash 5K. I hope you will take the opportunity to join us for this family event and help support our scholarship fund.

2018 brings exciting new programs we will be offering to our members. In addition to our traditional events, we will be presenting opportunities for personal development and betterment. Community experts, as well as UTSA staff or alumni, will present enriching programming. Be sure to check our event calendar for more details.

2018 also brings exciting changes to UTSA with President Eighmy’s Strategic Initiatives. I invite you to read his plan for UTSA and see where your alma mater is heading. Dr. Eighmy is setting the vision of UTSA’s future as an institution that serves students and society in transformational capacities.

And finally, 2018 will kick off UTSA’s year-long 50th Anniversary celebration on June 5th, 2018. Wow!! So much to be proud of in such a short amount of time. We look forward to being a part of the university celebration and hope you will come out to visit. Stop by the office or introduce yourself to a staff member at one of our events and we’ll give you an alumni pin!

Birds Up Roadrunners, it’s going to be a great 2018!!
