(Feb. 28, 2013) -- UTSA students can apply now for the 2013 Student Volunteer of the Year Award. The award honors an outstanding student for his or her time, effort and commitment to volunteerism and enhancing civic life in the community. The application deadline is 5 p.m., March 8. Nominations and self-nominations will be considered. The winner will be announced at the University Life Awards on April 4.
Last year's recipient, Janet Oyeteju, encourages students to apply and reflect on the importance service has played in their UTSA experience. Since receiving the award at the 2012 University Life Awards, she said the award opened opportunities for her to work with nonprofits -- something she is very passionate about. Oyeteju also received the $500 Sandra Cisneros scholarship that accompanies the award, and her picture is displayed outside the University Center ballroom on the Main Campus.
For more information about the award or volunteer programs, contact Cristina Dominguez at 210-458-4770, stop by Volunteer Services on the Paseo in University Center Room 1.216 on the Main Campus, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
