(April 11, 2011)--To get the best seats in the Alamodome for the inaugural UTSA football season this fall, fans should purchase season tickets by Friday, April 15.
Fans who order by the deadline will get ranked based on loyalty points and receive an appointment in May to select their seats in the Alamodome. Roadrunner Athletic Fund donors will select first, so become a donor before April 15 in order to get the best seats possible.
Season tickets still will be available for purchase after April 15, however the best seats already will be taken by those who ordered before the deadline. Seats are available at all price levels from $120 to $1,250 per seat. There are even a few luxury suites still available, so it is not too late to get the best seats in the house.
To order season tickets, call the ticket office at 210-458-UTSA (8872) or buy online today at www.goUTSA.com (select the Tickets tab).

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.
At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.
Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.
With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.
Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through research and discovery, teaching and learning, community engagement and public service. As an institution of access and excellence, UTSA embraces multicultural traditions and serves as a center for intellectual and creative resources as well as a catalyst for socioeconomic development and the commercialization of intellectual property - for Texas, the nation and the world.
To be a premier public research university, providing access to educational excellence and preparing citizen leaders for the global environment.
We encourage an environment of dialogue and discovery, where integrity, excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration and innovation are fostered.
