(March 9, 2010)--UTSA Commencement ceremonies for the spring semester are Thursday-Saturday, May 6-8 at the Convocation Center on the Main Campus. UTSA will continue with the traditional five ceremonies as the university remains one of the fast growing institutions in Texas.

As the ceremonies approach, graduates-to-be will want to attend GradFest on March 24-25, when commencement ticket distribution begins. Sponsored by the UTSA Alumni Association, the event at the Main and Downtown campuses is an opportunity to make all commencement purchases at one time.

At GradFest, graduation candidates can pick up commencement tickets and order announcements, cap and gown, diploma frame and an official UTSA ring. Each graduate-to-be will be allotted six tickets for family members and friends to attend a ceremony. Remaining tickets will be distributed by lottery on April 24. Monitor the UTSA Commencement Web site for lottery times.

GradFest also is an opportunity for graduation candidates to register to win prizes and buy a Pave the Paseo brick. Brick buyers will have their names placed on a brick paving the walkway between the older and newer sections of the University Center on the Main Campus.
