(June 9, 2011)--In spring 2011, the Humanities and Social Sciences Building on the UTSA Main Campus became the McKinney Humanities Building in recognition of alumna Mary E. McKinney, the largest single private donor in university history. To prepare for the renaming celebration, the Office of Facilities partnered with students of Sigma Pi fraternity to spruce up the building's interior and exterior.

Work spanned several days and included landscaping beautification, general cleanup, creating new interior and exteriors signs, and fresh paint on doors, frames and stairwells.

Facilities staff members are grateful for the assistance and extend sincere appreciation to members of Sigma Pi for their volunteer work to help enhance the look of the McKinney Building. Because of everyone's efforts, the interior and exterior of the building were pristine -- just in time for the dedication ceremony.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
