(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 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 ucinfo@utsa.edu.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

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.
