You know you’ve seen them on campus; now here they are.

We’ve interviewed the sexiest and smartest upperclassmen at UTSA, and asked them thirteen personality questions selected by our staff.

Nominations for this contest were done by student organizations and a few members of The Paisano based on intellectual and personal appeal. In addition to the personality questions, applicants had to answer trivia to test their smarts. A committee of five students, unrelated to the nomination process, were asked to select the top sixteen from our poll of applicants based on their responses to both trivia and personal questions.

And they chose well. Try to catch these Roadrunners before they graduate!
