Roadrunner Days is a series of fun-filled, informational events that take place during the first week of the fall semester. These events are designed to acquaint students with the campus and the countless opportunities it has to offer, easing what might otherwise be an overwhelming change into a smooth transition.
The President’s Picnic and the President’s BBQ are opportunities to join UTSA President, Dr. Ricardo Romo, for free food with music and T-shirt giveaways. The Picnic takes place on Aug. 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at both the main and downtown campuses, and the BBQ takes place from 5:00pm to 7 p.m. at the main campus. They are both popular events, expecting to attract over two thousand attendees.
The fraternities and sororities of UTSA host the Fajita Fest that allows students to acquaint themselves with UTSA Greek life while enjoying free fajitas. The event will take place on the East Lawn of the main campus on Aug. 25 from 5 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
