Alumni Awards

The Alumni Awards Ceremony is an annual event that occurs on the day of Fall Fest, a signature event on campus that provides student organizations with opportunities to fundraise for their groups.

Three awards are given each year.  This year the awards ceremony took place on Saturday, October 16, 2021, at noon. Photos from the 2021 event can be viewed here.

The Recent Graduate award is given to an alumnus/a who has earned an undergraduate degree in the last 3 years and is doing exciting things in the world.  

The Spirit of the Jaguar award is given to an alumnus/a providing excellent service and volunteerism to the University and/or community.  

The Distinguished Alumni award is given to an alumnus/a with a stellar professional career. 

Nominations are solicited from staff, students, faculty, and alumni each August via e-mail and social media.

In celebration of its 10-year anniversary in 2019, Texas A&M University-San Antonio honored 10 alumni at its annual awards ceremony, one for each class year, instead of its traditional three awardees.   These alumni were awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award, the Recent Graduate Award or the Spirit of the Jaguar Award.


Each alumnus/a was recognized at a brunch on Saturday, October 19, a Kick-Off to Fall Fest, and received a crystal obelisk and a framed citation.
