(April 25, 2012) -- UTSA will host its fourth annual Party on the Paseo, a free event for the entire UTSA community, from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., Thursday, April 26 at the University Center paseo on the UTSA Main Campus. Party on the Paseo is an opportunity to celebrate Fiesta San Antonio on campus in an alcohol-free, safe environment.

"Thursday night of Fiesta has been commonly referred to as 'College Night,' and on-campus alcohol violations historically would spike during this time," said Kelsey Bratcher, associate director of student activities. "Since Party on the Paseo has been part of UTSA's Fiesta celebration, on-campus alcohol violations during this time period have decreased each year."

In fact, Party on the Paseo won Outstanding Creative Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program at the BACCHUS Network General Assembly in November 2010.

The UTSA event will offer free food, games, activities including a DWI simulator, prizes and live music from Filligar and the Campus Activities Board Battle of the Bands winner, The Lost. Participants can meet special guests Mr. and Ms. UTSA and participate in activities provided by UTSA departments and local agencies that will share the message of enforcing drinking and drunk-driving laws.

The evening's activities are sponsored by the UTSA Office of Student Activities, Be A Responsible Roadrunner (BARR), Campus Activities Board, Campus Living Villages, Campus Recreation, Counseling Services, Student Conduct and Community Standards, Student Health Services, University Center Program Council, Housing and Residence Life, and the UTSA Police Department. Activities also are made possible by a grant from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission through the Enforcing the Underage Drinking Laws fund.

BARR is a student organization supported by the Office of Student Activities. The organization is made up of student leaders dedicated to purposeful, diverse and educational programming. They support the rights of all students to make their own choices regarding behaviors that affect their health and encourage student to educate themselves about those issues. BARR encourages all students to consider a wide range of healthier behaviors that reduce or eliminate the risk of negative outcomes.

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.
