Let Our Spirit Flow

Our Homecoming theme in 2023 is 'Let Our Spirit Flow'; in tribute to the water that flows from UIW and ripples through the city of San Antonio. Like the water, UIW graduates flow out into the world with hearts full of faith, service, innovation, truth and education. This year, we celebrate that spirit.
