(Sept. 30, 2011) -- The UTSA Police Department will host the annual National Night Out at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 4 at the University Center paseo on the Main Campus. The UTSA community is invited to this community awareness program about neighborhood crime and drug prevention. There will be information tables, free snacks, giveaways and multiple drawings for prizes.
Hosted by Cleto Rodriguez from WOAI TV, the opening ceremony appearances scheduled include UTSA Head Football Coach Larry Coker and UTSA Chief of Police Steve Barrera, along with the UTSA cheerleaders and dance team.
Local and campus community representatives will be on hand to provide information, answer questions and have some fun in promoting a safer community in which to live, learn and work. The goal of National Night Out is to strengthen neighborhood spirit and community-police partnerships, while sending the message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime and drug use.
Organizations participating in the event will include UTSA Athletics, Housing, Student Health Services, Student Activities, National Weather Service, University Center Bookstore, Student Judicial Affairs, Frost Bank at UTSA and many others.
The UTSA Police Department encourages the entire UTSA community to get involved and make a difference. For more information, call 210-458-6974.
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.
