Sponsored by the UTSA Alumni Association since 1996, the Official UTSA Ring serves as a symbol of pride and accomplishment. The ring represents a lifelong link with fellow classmates and alumni. Students who have achieved junior or senior status are eligible to wear the ring. The UTSA ring is held overnight inside the Alamo before being issued to students, thus forever linking UTSA alumni to the proud and rich history of Texas. Students receive their Official UTSA Rings in the presence of friends, family and university dignitaries at the Official Ring Presentation Ceremony held each fall and spring semester.
