Thank You Rowdy is a plush stand-up Rowdy figure (modeled after the upright basketball-themed Rowdy image, before the sleeker, football Rowdy was designed) passed between staff in UTSA's division of Student Affairs. Approximately twice a month, the most recent Thank You Rowdy recipient chooses a person or group of persons within Student Affairs upon whom they would like to bestow the honor. He resides with that person(s) for that duration until he is re-gifted, sometimes after that person has added some kind of accessory to his outfit. This tradition has been going on since September of 2007, and his latest whereabouts are reported in the Student Affairs Staff News newsletter.
