ABOUT DESTINATION COLLEGE

San Antonio is one of the top college destinations in Texas, with more than 150,000 students enrolled in a variety of colleges and universities. Every year San Antonio takes one week in the spring to celebrate San Antonio as both a college town and a college-going town with free events.

 

Destination College week is that week!

Join us for the first ever VIRTUAL College Signing Day celebration! We will be celebrating the high school seniors of San Antonio who have committed to pursue education beyond high school. In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, with schools closed and large events prohibited, the College Signing Day team is bringing the event online and will be hosting virtually so that all of San Antonio can participate!

 

Tune in to this special live stream event on Facebook and YouTube with co-hosts Russel Rush and Molly Cox. This live event will include college shout outs, mascot cameos, musical performances, giveaways, and dance breaks from special guests, along with the College Signing Day Pledge. And don’t forget to wear your college T-Shirt or sweatshirt all day to show your school pride!
