(March 23, 2010)--The UTSA Campus Activity Board will host the annual RowdyStock concert from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, March 27 at the Convocation Center east lawn on the Main Campus. Free and open to the public, there will be refreshments, food, raffles and the opportunity to turn in your U.S. Census form.
The all-day music festival is inspired by Woodstock, featuring multiple bands including the Nappy Roots, a multi-platinum selling hip-hop group. Nappy Roots are about to release their 11th studio album and have established themselves as international superstars. In their home state of Kentucky, Gov. Paul Patton even declared Sept. 16 as Nappy Roots Day.
Other musical performances for the festival will include:
All who attend are encouraged to bring their completed U.S. Census forms, which will be collected for mailing by representatives of UTSA's UPS Store. The event also will promote U-Count @ UTSA, a campaign to make sure every UTSA student is counted in U.S. Census 2010.
Census staff will be available to answer questions about the census form and provide information on U.S. Census employment opportunities. UTSA hopes to lead San Antonio in returned census forms for National Census Day April 1.

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.
