The 2015 University Life Awards were the 39th annual and took place in the UC III Ballroom on April 2, 2015 at 6:00pm, finishing around 8:00. The masters of ceremony were Mr. and Ms. UTSA Carl Willis and Ileana Gonzalez, who started the ceremony with a musical number (Ileana singing and Carl rapping) composed for the event. The theme was Walt Disney, featuring Disney's quote "If you can dream it, you can do it," video clips of him talking about the creative process behind his work, and Mickey Mouse-shaped centerpieces. The awards selection committee and event co-chairs were not listed on the program. The ULAs are hosted by Student Government Association.
