UTSA will bring a 22-11 overall record to its second national tournament appearance in program history. The Roadrunners' five-set victory a week ago against Central Arkansas propelled them into their first NCAA Tournament in a decade, and they have won of 17 of their last 20 outings.
The Longhorns, 23-5 and currently ranked eighth in the American Volleyball Coaches Association's Top 25 Poll, earned an at-large berth in the 64-team field after finishing second in the Big 12 Conference with an 18-2 mark this fall. The Horns advanced to last year's National Championship Match where they lost to Penn State in five sets.
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.
