Historical Note

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.

There is no mention of a Yearbook Organization in subsequent yearbooks. Although each yearbook generally contains a statement from the yearbook's editor-in-chief, there is little information about the yearbooks' staff members, publishers, and so forth. The final yearbook, produced in 1998, was created by a single student, Rachele Di Tullio.

Titles and themes of the yearbooks were:

  • 1990: Horizons. Theme: "The Start of Something Big"
  • 1991: Horizons. Theme: "The Dream Is Alive"
  • 1992: Untitled. Theme: "Seize the Day; Carpe Diem"
  • 1993: Chaparral. Theme: "Breaking All Boundaries"
  • 1995: Chaparral. Theme: "Talking the Silver"
  • 1998: Chaparral. Theme: "Building Momentum"
