(Feb. 23, 2011)--If you are you a student with an interesting UTSA story, you could be the next face of UTSA.
The UTSA Office of University Advancement promotes the university in the community and in generating support for UTSA initiatives. Students play a big part in promoting the university and are featured in television and print advertising, UTSA magazine and websites, and other media.
Who are we looking for? We're looking for students who are making a difference at UTSA, within their communities, and across the San Antonio area. We're looking for students who have overcome obstacles, who are engaged in research or are working hard toward completing a degree. We're looking for students who are leaders and who are passionate about their studies and UTSA.
What will we ask? We want to get to know about your background and accomplishments. We want to know what you plan to do after you graduate, how UTSA has had an impact on you and why you're proud to be a student.
Your story could be used to help show why UTSA is such a great place, where students can take advantage of exceptional opportunities, learn from great minds and serve society. Student participation can make a big difference in telling the UTSA story.
>> To share your story, visit the Tell Us Your UTSA Story website. Take the quick survey, provide some information and someone will be in touch when there is the right opportunity to feature you.
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.
