Nearly 5,000 of the university’s graduates are encouraged to take part in the parade of cars, led by university police.

As they drive around Main Campus, which is situated near Loop 1604 and Babcock Road, graduates can honk, wave and take pictures, according to a news release.

They are encouraged to use the hashtag #UTSAGrad20 for a chance to be featured on UTSA’s social media channels.
