The University of Texas at San Antonio, or more commonly referred to as UTSA, will have several students from the school joining the class of 2021. The now-Lions will be expectant Roadrunners as they look to start their future in the vibrant city of San Antonio.

“I love the atmosphere,” senior Nicole Gilbert said. “The school is beautiful and the students on campus are approachable and kind. I like how the campus is smaller, so it makes it easier to get from class to class. The school also gives you resources to help you be successful throughout the year, such as counselors who give you advice.”

UTSA has nearly 29,000 students currently, and is emerging as a Tier One research institution. They currently invest much into programs such as health, cybersecurity, energy, sustainability, and human and social development. There are over 167 degree programs available at UTSA, and it was recently ranked number four in the nation for universities under 50 years old.

“When I went to visit I fell in love with the campus, amenities, and traditions,” senior Maddy Mycue said. “As a psych major, it’s very exciting that they have a huge research center.”

Hi! My name’s Bri Branscomb, and this is my third year on staff for The Roar and second year as Assistant Editor. I’m very proud of the material we produce, and am excited to get to spend another year with all my fellow staffers! When I’m not working on newspaper, I can usually be found on stage for theatre rehearsals or looking for something I’ve lost (It happens a lot). I’m excited to be a part of the voice of LHS and will do my best to represent what our school is about. If you’re looking for me, follow the trail of loud laughter, a mess, or look for the purple hair.
