(Nov. 14, 2011) -- If UTSA relied solely on tuition and support from the state, this semester would have ended Nov. 9. Student-paid tuition and state monies cover only approximately 70 percent of the semester's costs -- the rest is funded by other sources including donations from foundations, corporations, alumni and other friends of UTSA.
Hundreds of students attended Thank You Day to sign the thank-you banner and record thank-you video messages for donors. Thank You Day is an event sponsored by the Roadrunners for Life (RR4L), a student-led campaign dedicated to educating students about supporting UTSA.
At the annual event, students express their appreciation for donor support.
"Students are at the heart of everything we do here at UTSA -- including thanking our donors," said Marjie French, UTSA vice president for university advancement. "I think it's a great idea to give students the opportunity to express their thanks in their own words."
Grace Adeyemi, a volunteer for the RR4L, said, "I had no idea so many people give to UTSA. I am grateful for their support, and I plan to do the same when I graduate from UTSA."
Student posters will present case studies based on practicum experiences, literature reviews on topics relevant to educational psychology, and other research experiences this year. The event is free and open to the public.
