University of TEXAS AT SAN ANTONIO
University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is a university of first choice for students from Texas, the nation and more than 85 countries. UTSA prides itself on its diverse student population. More than 58 percent of UTSA students are from underrepresented groups. Nearly half (46.2%) of UTSA undergraduates will be the first in their family to earn a bachelor’s degree. UTSA offers students a top-tier education with more than 150 degree programs. The university places a strong emphasis on preparing students to excel in a global economy in any career they choose. Degree programs encourage the discovery of new knowledge and innovation. UTSA students also work alongside leading researchers, as early as their freshman year, to address today’s most pressing global challenges. As a result, the number of inventions developed at UTSA by faculty and students has grown dramatically. San Antonio offers visitors the iconic River Walk, historical landmarks, amusement parks, a lively art scene, museums, performing arts stages, sporting events and annual festivals. The Main Campus is on the edge of the city, within reach of Texas Hill Country, while the Downtown Campus is in the heart of San Antonio's city center.

six flags have flown over texas
"Native Americans have lived in Texas for thousands of years, but it did not become part of a country in the modern sense until Spanish explorers arrived in 1519. The Spanish then essentially ignored it until the 1680s, when the French established an outpost near Matagorda Bay. “That galvanized the Spaniards, [who said], ‘There might not be anything there, but damned if we’re going to let the French have it,’” McCaslin said. Although Mexico’s war of independence pushed out Spain in 1821, Texas did not remain a Mexican possession for long. It became its own country, called the Republic of Texas, from 1836 until it agreed to join the United States in 1845. Sixteen years later, it seceded along with 10 other states to form the Confederacy. The Civil War forced it back into the Union, where it has stayed ever since. The various flags that have flown over Texas—those of Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the United States and the Confederacy—inspired the name of the Six Flags amusement park chain, which originated in Texas in 1961."
