Enhance Your Experience at UTSA

While your coursework will prepare you to exceed academically,  having an engaged student life experience is crucial to student success and overall well-being. Through a robust schedule of events and opportunities offered to students living on-campus in our Honors Residential Community, your Honors Experience will enhance your academic and personal development, provide an environment to meet and thrive with other like-minded students, and to practice good health and wellness.

The Honors College hosts and co-hosts a number of events each semester. Honors students are required to attend a minimum of 3 events each semester. Events are categorized the same as our SPICES curriculum model:

  • Service Learning: Serve your community through events where we create care packages and learn about advocacy for pertinent issues.
  • Professional Development: Meet and network with Honors College alumni and learn about what they are doing following graduation from UTSA.
  • Intellectual Achievement: Attend lectures by invited speakers from UTSA faculty to community leaders.
  • Cultural Exploration: Share and learn about different cultures in events like our Rice Festival.
  • Engaged Living: Weekly Yoga sessions run by Associate Dean Fleuriet and Counselor Lozano as well as activities co-organized with our Rec Center. Mental health and wellbeing workshops have students reflect on healthy practices to manage stress and manage time effectively.
  • Skill Development: Learn new skills such as crafting a resume or cover letter, as well as do workshop exercises together.
