In 1977, UTSA had two contenders for a mascot, the armadillos and the stars. After a student vote was declared void by the Student Representative Assembly, another vote took place with two different contenders-the armadillo and the roadrunner.
On December 9, 1977 the roadrunner was announced as the UTSA mascot. He was named “Rowdy.”
Rowdy can be seen at all athletics events and is often up to no good. Watch out for this mischievous bird because he might be messing with you next!
