(Sept. 13, 2010)--The UTSA Undergraduate Orientation Advisory Board (OAB) is seeking proposals for modifications to orientation programming for the 2010-2011 academic year.
Proposals for orientation sessions for students entering UTSA in the spring 2011, summer 2011 and fall 2011 are due Sept. 30, 2010, to George Norton, UTSA assistant vice president for student affairs, undergraduate admissions, orientation and family programs.
