A Guide to the UTSA Yearbooks, 1990-1998
The University of Texas at San Antonio was established in 1969. As of 2009, the University comprises three campuses: UTSA's Main Campus in northwest San Antonio, its Downtown Campus, and the HemisFair Park Campus, which includes the Institute of Texan Cultures museum.
The Yearbook Organization, responsible for the production of UTSA's first yearbook, Horizons, originated in 1989 as the Yearbook Committee of the Student Representative Assembly. The yearbook's first editor was Cindy Ledwig, who had served as the Historian of the Student Representative Assembly. The committee had conducted a survey that revealed that 72 percent of UTSA students believed that UTSA should institute a yearbook. The name Horizons was chosen by the Yearbook Organization in a naming contest. The name was entered by Tito Sepulveda, a senior engineering student. The yearbook was published by Taylor Publishing Company.
