Family Events

One of the benefits of joining The Family Association is the opportunity to attend various events and family-student activities. These events are aimed towards incorporating parents with promoting UTSA’s spirit, pride and tradition!

Family Weekend

Family Weekend is the perfect opportunity for families to reconnect with students, learn about campus programs and services, and catch a Roadrunner Football game. A variety of family friendly events are held at the Main Campus on Friday, including a Family Reception. Students and families can spend Saturday at the Alamodome to take in the tailgating, Spirit Walk and football game!

A highlight of Family Weekend is the recognition of the Family of the Year. Nominations are received at the beginning of the semester. This award recognizes a family’s UTSA spirit and overall support of its student. The Family of the Year receives tickets to the UTSA football game, a “Family of the Year” plaque and a UTSA gift basket.

Meet Your UTSA Family

Receptions are held at different cities across Texas in conjunction with the UTSA Admissions Office, Alumni Programs and the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs, to introduce prospective Roadrunners to our UTSA Alumni and Family Association members. Receptions create connections and friendships among prospective Roadrunners and develop a network for parents. Families of students are welcome to attend or host receptions in their areas. Contact Student Affairs Development Office at (210) 458-5125 for more information.
