Students who commute to campus may have noticed a welcome change to the street signs around campus.

Many universities have custom street signs to indicate where campus begins and ends, such as UTSA’s rival school Texas State Unviersity. Thanks to a joint effort by UTSA and San Antonio officials, UTSA is now part of that group.

Last Wednesday, students and city leaders gathered for the President’s Barbeque on the East Lawn of the UTSA Convocation Center. After a musical performance from a local regaae band, San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor, Deputy City Manager Peter Zanoni, City Councilman Ron Nirenburg, Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales and other representatives from the city dedicated 94 UTSA branded streetsigns.

The new signs feature the Rowdyhead, and are currently being installed at and around UTSA’s Main campus, Downtown campus and Park West Athletics Complex. According to the university, the new signs will provide a neighborhood identity for UTSA, which the administration refers to as the “UTSA Gateway District.”
