(Jan. 12, 2011)--UTSA students, faculty and staff are invited to enter a naming contest for the University Center Retail Center, which will move this semester next to the Rios Golden Cut salon on the UC paseo on the Main Campus.
The UC Retail Center is known primarily for selling discounted PARSCORE and SCANTRON test products, blue books, pens and pencils. The center sells other discounted products including Santikos movie tickets, Fiesta Texas tickets and VIA student bus passes. With the new larger space, the center has the potential to offer additional services.
"Our new location was designed to be full of Roadrunner spirit," said Herb Ganey, UC business manager. "We would like the campus community to help us find a creative and fun name that reflects the services we provide and connects to UTSA pride."
The naming contest runs through Jan. 28; the winners will be announced Feb. 3. UTSA students, faculty or staff members can submit one entry per person by visiting the UC Retail Center across from the bookstore, the UC Information Center or by e-mailing email@example.com.
UC full-time and student staff will review submissions and select the winning name along with second and third places. Winners will receive these prizes:
