(Nov. 20, 2012) -- The UTSA Honors Alliance recently hosted the annual Citizenry and Etiquette Dinner in the University Center Ballroom at the Main Campus.
A presentation was led by Morris Ellington, program development manager, and Barbara Jackson, career counselor, both of the University Career Center. Some of the evening's topics included business professionalism, networking during cocktail hour and basic table manners.
The Honors Alliance hosts the dinner each semester for incoming members. More than 60 students attended the event in order to improve their social skills and be more comfortable at more formal social events.
"It was a memorable experience that will help me in my career," said Znobea Williams.
"I gained more self-esteem, knowledge and lessons I can use in the near future at formal dinners," said Matthew DeLeon.
The Honors Alliance mission is to create collaboration among its members to promote leadership development, volunteerism and recognition while promoting academic integrity. Invitations for membership are sent each fall and spring semester. Prospective members apply and participate in Honors Alliance events.

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.
That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.
Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
