(Feb. 22, 2010)--A group of UTSA public relations majors will host "Come to Your Senses: Take Part in the Census!" to raise awareness of U.S. Census 2010. Free and open to the UTSA community, the event is 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 25 in the Business Building University Room (2.06.04) on the Main Campus. There will be guest speakers, along with free food and drinks, music and drawings for prizes.

The speakers will be Ursula Pari, KSAT-TV news anchor, and Sophia Azoubel, a representative from the regional office of the U.S. Census Bureau. Both will discuss the importance of participating in the census, the easy-to-complete census questionnaire and the impact it will have on UTSA and the local community.

The event is a project organized and implemented by senior UTSA communication students as an entry in the national Bateman public relations campaign competition. This year's competition project goal is to persuade students to take part in Census 2010.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
