(Nov. 14, 2011) -- For the second year, UTSA will observe America Recycles Day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15. UTSA students, staff, faculty, friends and community members are invited to drop off sensitive paper documents to be shredded and recycled. The drop-off site is adjacent to the Bosque (pron. "bos-kee") Street Garage (formerly the South Parking Garage) on the Main Campus.
And, as always, UTSA community members are encouraged to utilize the recycling barrels around the campuses, where plastic, paper and aluminum can be deposited for recycling. Additionally, remember to put cardboard and paper in blue recycling bins in the hallways of all UTSA buildings.
The recycling program is hosted by the UTSA Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management (EHSRM) with the assistance of UTSA partner GreenStar recycling, which is certified for safe document destruction.
America Recycles Day promotes recycling across the country and is a great opportunity for the UTSA community to help keep the environment clean. The EHSRM mission is to reduce waste and increase recycling on the UTSA campuses.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
