(Aug. 18, 2010)--UTSA community members can save time and gas -- and help the planet -- by eating on campus. And, when purchasing one of the new faculty and staff Dining Dollar meal plans, they are eligible to receive a complimentary eco-friendly container and the new Green Thread reusable cup.
Even those who don't buy a meal plan can drink up and drink often, but use the same cup at most UTSA dining venues. Get a Green Thread reusable cup for $4.99 and enjoy unlimited 99-cent refills. Buy a cup at the C3 Store in the University Center and the Downtown Campus food court in the Frio Street Building. (Certain restrictions apply; read the Green Thread FAQ at the website.)
Additionally, faculty and staff members can purchase Dining Dollar meal plans for $150 or $250 and save. The $150 plan offers a $12 bonus value (8 percent bonus) and the $250 plan offers a $30 bonus value (12 percent bonus). See the plan details below.
Faculty and staff meal plans do not expire. The $5 guaranteed door rate at the RFoC @ Roadrunner Cafe can be used as many times as you would like, as long as you have a balance on your faculty-staff dining plan on your UTSACard.
Ready to start saving? Purchase a meal plan at the Dining at UTSA website or stop by any UTSA dining location to pay at the register.

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.
Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.
Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
All campuses will be closed for the Labor Day holiday.
