(July 27, 2012) -- The Alpha Delta Lambda chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. of UTSA will host its annual Free Teachers' Book Drive from 2 to 6 p.m., Saturday, July 28 in the Business Building University Room (2.06.04) on the UTSA Main Campus.
The organization has the event every summer to provide free reading materials for current and future teachers, parents and any organization that promotes literacy as part of Alpha Delta Lambda's "Assault on Literacy" program.
"We really want to help the youth in San Antonio and the surrounding area improve their reading skills," said Willyam Winston, vice president of the Alpha Delta Lambda chapter. "We have several hundreds of books of all levels, so we encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity."
The Alpha Delta Lambda chapter was charted on The University of Texas at San Antonio campus on Feb. 1, 2008. The fraternity strives for excellence by participating in community service and social events to help create a positive image for men in the university setting. Recently, the organization was honored as the 2010-2011 International Chapter of the Year at the 78th International Grand Conclave in Minneapolis, Minn.

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.
