Share this Story

(April 6, 2010)--The University Center invites UTSA faculty and staff members to open houses at the Campus Technology Store on Wednesday, April 7 at the Main Campus and Thursday, April 8 at the Downtown Campus. Each event will feature coffee and light refreshments from 9 to 11 a.m. with giveaways every hour between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

"At the open house, we will be showing our guests how the Campus Technology Store can save them and their departments time and money as they approach the end of the academic year," said Campus Technology Store Manager Mario Carvajal. "Our staff has spent a lot of time researching what works here at UTSA and is ready to help."

The Campus Technology Store has many popular software offerings, accessories, peripherals and Apple products in stock and ready to go at the time of purchase. Other items are available within a few days, and staff will be on hand to consult departments on PC configurations and Adobe departmental licensing. All software and hardware is priced for the educational market. An onsite service area can quickly provide diagnostic and repair assistance should the need arise.

The Main Campus store is an authorized Apple Campus Store and carries a wide selection of Apple products including the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Mini, Time Capsule, iPad and all iPod models in a variety of colors and storage capacities. All Apple hardware is offered at education pricing and departments can take advantage of lower education pricing on MacBooks, MacBook Pros and Apple software.

Individual purchases of Microsoft and Adobe software require UTSA identification and can be purchased with cash, debit cards or major credit cards. Departments can pay by ProCard, purchase order or interdepartment transfer (IDT).

The Campus Technology Store is next to Starbucks in the University Center on the Main Campus and in the Durango Building on the Downtown Campus. For a listing of available products, pricing, store hours and contact information, visit the Campus Technology Store Web site.

For acclaimed UTSA writer, poetry rhymes with life

Robert Penn Warren said: “How do poems grow? They grow out of your life.” That is certainly true for Carmen Tafolla. An associate professor of practice with the UTSA College of Education and Human Development, Tafolla has authored more than 20 acclaimed books of poetry and prose, including "The Holy Tortilla and a Pot of Beans." It won the Tom´s Rivera Children’s Book Award in 2009.

Tafolla is a San Antonio native who grew up on the West Side. Attending a private high school, she realized that the literature did not positively portray her community or the people who lived there. She determined to change that in her writing. In published works for both adults and children — more than 200 anthologies, magazines, journals, textbooks and readers in four languages — Tafolla reflects on the rich Mexican-American culture of San Antonio in which she grew up.

Did you know? Tafolla was San Antonio's first Poet Laureate, from 2012 to 2014, and currently serves as the Poet Laureate of Texas.
