Now in its 12th year, UST’s annual Two Saints and a Taco Tasting is Houston’s premier taco-tasting event that attracts alumni from across the region for a friendly competition among some of the city’s best restaurants. This sell-out event amounts to great fun for alumni while raising money for the Alumni Association Student Scholarship Fund.

This year, we are honoring graduates from the classes of 1953, 1963, 1973, 1983, 1993, 2003, 2013, and 2023. Although these classes will receive special recognition, this event is for all alumni and their guests. Join us for a full spread brunch complete with mimosas, president’s remarks, photos with your classmates and more. We can’t wait to toast those celebrating milestone reunion years!
