It's called the "Vaquero Roundup", a week full of events for 4,500 incoming freshmen at UTRGV.

We spoke to UTRGV Director for Student Activities Cindy Mata Vasquez about the university’s mascot.

"It's a symbol of pride, unity, school spirit and I think we finally got it this year and we're very excited to unveil it to the class of 20-23," she says.
