University community scores free stuff at UTPA

The lines were long as students, faculty and staff waited patiently in the Student Union on Thursday, July 30 to get their hands on the last of The University of Texas-Pan American promotional items ­– T-shirts, coffee cups, bumper stickers, foam fingers, and much more – before the university’s transition to The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley on Aug. 31. Several tables were set up with free UTPA swag and everyone in attendance went home with as much as they could carry. Departments from across campus hosted the giveaway in an effort make room for new items to come featuring the UTRGV name and colors. Check out the photos on Facebook and see what the university community walked away with.
