In 2019, Texas A&M University-San Antonio (A&M-SA) will celebrate our 10-Year Anniversary. We trace the establishment of A&M-SA back to Governor Rick Perry’s historic signing of Senate Bill 629 on May 23, 2009. But the story of our remarkable University was decades in the making, thanks to heroic acts of larger-than-life figures such as the late Senator Frank L. Madla.

Beginning in January 2019, A&M-SA’s year-long celebration will feature a diverse array of programs, including:

  • Celebration Kick-Off at Spring 2019 Convocation
  • Opening of 10-Year Anniversary Exhibit at Presidio Gallery
  • 10-Year History Book Release at Festival de Cascarones
  • Celebration of Senate Bills 629 and 800 with Unveiling of History Wall
  • General, The Jaguar’s 10th Birthday Celebration at President’s Picnic
  • 10-Year Award Ceremony for Alumni at Fall Fest
  • 10-Year Military EmbracingTM Celebration for Veterans Day
  • 10-Year Anniversary Culmination at Lights of Esperanza

Many of these family-friendly events will be open to members of the San Antonio community. For a complete schedule of planned events and activities, check the 10-Year Anniversary site frequently.

Members of the A&M-SA community may use the 10-Year Anniversary logo for official purposes.
