Move over Cheeseheads: UTSA unveils the Rowdyhead

New Rowdyhead is available now

(April 18, 2011)--University of Texas at San Antonio fans now have a new way to wear their school spirit. The Rowdyhead is available at the UTSA Bookstore or at the Rowdyheads website. (If bought at the Rowdyheads website, a portion of proceeds benefits UTSA Alumni Programs.) Fans turned entrepreneurs Carlos Vazquez '10 and Nicholas Terry created the unusual hat that could become the latest craze at UTSA games.

"We are very thankful for all of the help and support we have received from both UTSA Athletics and the Alumni Association," said Vazquez. "As UTSA students and alumni, we're proud of our university and all our athletic teams. We saw the need to create a unique product that true UTSA supporters would be proud to wear. With the coming of UTSA football, there was never a better time for the Rowdyhead."

Vazquez and Terry met in 2008 as members of the professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi. Vazquez received his degree from UTSA in finance in December 2010. While at UTSA, he was involved on campus with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, UTSA Club Cycling, Campus Recreation Student Advisory Council and Alpha Kappa Psi. Vazquez plans to start work on an M.B.A. at UTSA in fall 2011.

Terry decided to attend UTSA as a Coordinated Admissions Plan (CAP) student, which allows students to begin undergraduate studies at a participating UT System university and then transfer to UT Austin for their sophomore year.

But Terry decided to stay, after growing fond of the UTSA atmosphere. He will graduate this May with a degree in business management. Still a member of Alpha Kappa Psi as well as Toastmasters and Business Student Council, he completed a yearlong internship at Meritage Homes as a construction manager.

Rowdy Crew was the first student organization to wear the Rowdyhead in public, at home basketball games during the 2010 spring semester. The headgear then got some national attention when the UTSA band wore them at the NCAA Tournament for the Alabama State and Ohio State games. Rowdyheads also were presented to state legislators during the annual "UTSA Day at the Capitol" trip, where a grassroots network of students, alumni and friends of the UTSA talk with legislators about our state's higher education system, particularly UTSA.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

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.
