(Oct. 21, 2010)--Who will get a pie in the face from a Be A Responsible Roadrunner member? As a fundraiser for BARR, a UTSA student alcohol peer education group, last-chance monetary votes will be accepted from 11 to 11:45 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 21 at the University Center paseo as part of the "Thirsty Thursday" event.
>> Place donations in the buckets to vote for the one UTSA staff member or administrator who will receive a pie in the face shortly after noon at the paseo.
The competition has been tight between UTSA Head Football Coach Larry Coker and Head Men's Basketball Coach Brooks Thompson. Following up closely are Barry McKinney, director of student activities, and Kelsey Bratcher, assistant director of student activities.
"The students are having fun with this one and the BARR consultants appreciate you taking a risk of getting a pie in the face," said Bratcher, who is UTSA assistant director of student activities for risk education, alcohol and drug programs. "The votes have gone back and forth on who is in the lead, and right now the competition is very intense. Oh, I am deep in the running, too."
Donations will go toward training and education of BARR student consultants and educational programming at UTSA to reduce underage and high-risk drinking.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
