(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.

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.
That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.
Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
