(March 8, 2010)--The Sophomore invasion is coming to a campus near you this week. As a relatively new UTSA tradition introduced in 2007, Sophomore Days aims to make sophomores feel more connected to campus through two days of fun, food and information.
The UTSA Undergraduate Advising Centers and Office of Undergraduate Studies will prove that it is not just the Beatles who can turn a Hard Day's Night into a Magical Mystery Tour, hosting Sophomore Days March 9 at the Main Campus and March 10 at the Downtown Campus.
This year, the fun will be taken to a whole new level when sophomores are given the chance to try their hand at being John, Paul, George or Ringo on "Rock Band: The Beatles." The Beatles experience will kick off in the University Center galleria at 10 a.m., Tuesday, March 9 on the Main Campus. In addition to "Rock Band," there will be information fair sponsored by the advising centers and other UTSA offices.
If all of this information leaves sophomores feeling that all they need is lunch -- finger food, snacks and pizza will be provided in the University Center Denman Room (2.01.28) from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students also can mingle with other students, faculty and alumni.
The sophomore invasion will continue from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, March 10 at the Durango Building Student Activities Center on the Downtown Campus. Architecture and public policy majors and other sophomores will be able to see if they have what it takes to be a Beatle, and take advantage of the information on offer.
The Sophomore Days planning committee encourages all sophomores to stop by, learn more about resources and opportunities at UTSA, try their hand at "Rock Band" -- and share in the message that "Sophomores rock!"
