Congratulations Vaquero Class of 2020!

Congratulations Vaqueros Class of 2020! We’re looking forward to celebrating you during the Fall 2020 Virtual Commencement on Saturday, December 12th.

We put together this virtual toolkit to help you celebrate in style! 

  1. UTRGV Grad Care Package: We encourage you to post photos of you wearing the regalia items from your grad care package and use the #UTRGVGrad.
  2. UTRGV social media filters: These will help you achieve that “Just Graduated” look. Go ahead. Show off your accomplishment and hard work - we approve!
  3. Selfie Poster:  Show your UTRGV pride by snapping a selfie. These posters will get that point across! The download includes print at home sizes (8.5x 11 and 11x17)

    Here’s how to use them:

    • Post it and let the world know.
