(May 22, 2012) -- What do UTSA and the Chris Madrid's restaurant have in common? They both value personal attention, a quality product and a genuine concern for customer satisfaction.

When Mari Mandujano, assistant director of admissions at the UTSA Downtown Campus, realized that of all the t-shirts displayed on the walls of Chris Madrid's, not one was from UTSA, she made it her mission to correct that.

So, on Wednesday, May 16, 10 staff members from the UTSA Downtown Campus presented Diana Madrid, the sister of the restaurant's namesake, an official UTSA t-shirt to be displayed proudly in the restaurant.

Known for his famous hamburgers, the late Chris Madrid opened the restaurant in 1977 and was a University of Texas at Austin marketing major.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

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.
