(May 18, 2011)--The University Center (UC) has published its revised fee, labor and resource rates for the 2011-2012 academic year. The rates will go into effect Sept. 1 and can be viewed in the online UC Handbook of Operating Procedures.

The UC Advisory Council (UCAC) approved fees unanimously. Before fee approval, UC staff educated the UCAC regarding current fees and provided fee benchmark comparisons. Benchmark fees were gathered from event facilities and service providers in the San Antonio community as well as university center facilities around the nation that are similar to the UC.

"These fees allow us to be wise stewards of our student-generated funds and ensure we are able to provide a wide range of services for years to come," said UC Director Lowa Mwilambwe.

The UCAC voting members are elected, appointed or selected from student organizations and the general student body through an application process. Two faculty members appointed by President Ricardo Romo also have voting privileges.

The UC fee schedule highlights are:

  • The new fee schedule includes separate fee schedules for specific groups. With this change, the UC hopes to eliminate confusion as various groups seek information that applies specifically to their needs.
  • There are now easier to understand A/V packages for special events.
  • Most room rental rates have remained the same.

There are some fee increases in certain areas. They were put in place after analyzing the use of facility resources and considering wear, tear and eventual replacement of technology that is increasingly expensive. Fees are subject to change.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
