Pinning Ceremony

19th Annual Pinning Ceremony

Thursday, Aug. 17, 2023, 6 p.m.

Location: Skyroom

Join the community tradition of welcoming students to UIW through a symbolic ceremony of giving lapel pins to all incoming, first-time students. This event marks the start of your collegiate journey with the University seal on the incoming pins, which display the same seal that will decorate your class ring during commencement.

If you are not able to join us on the two opportunities provided to receive your pin in the welcoming ceremony, please contact Campus Life Office at (210) 829-6034 or

Coming Soon: Reserve your spot at the pinning ceremony.
