The Catholic Student Association (abbreviated CSA) is an archdiocesan campus ministry for Catholics based in the off-campus St. Anthony Catholic Student Center. The organization holds mass at 7 pm on Sundays at the center and weekly meetings on Wednesday evenings. Their mass is open to the general public and is often attended by students' families and CSA alumni.

CSA regularly participates in Best Fest, Fiesta UTSA, Golf Cart Parade, Window Wars, and University Life Awards. CSA participates in community service events, social events, and prayer meetings, including sometimes a weekly Rosary or Chaplet of Divine Mercy. CSA annually hosts an Ash Wednesday mass on campus, often presided over by a local bishop or archbishop.

Joseph Granado won the Student Leader of the Month award for October 2008 and was a Mr. UTSA finalist in 2009. Mr. UTSA 2004 Stephen Cheney joined after winning.

St. Anthony Catholic Student CenterEdit

CSA's ministry center was opened in 1996 and dedicated by then Archbishop Patrick Flores. Beginning on April 21, 2013, the Newman center began housing the Eucharist in an on-site tabernacle.
