(July 31, 2013) -- Nash Horne, student regent of the UT System Board of Regents, began his UT System campus visits today at UTSA, attending the closing ceremony of the signature Prefreshman Engineering Program and touring the campus.

A senior studying political communications at the University of Texas at Austin, Horne was appointed for a one-year term as student regent by Governor Rick Perry. While at UT Austin, Horne has been heavily involved in student government. His work led to founding the Bastrop Fire Relief effort, through which more than 8,000 student volunteers aided fire victims, and founding the Jessica Fertitta Endowment Fund. He plans to continue his education by earning a law degree.

"I came here to UTSA today to meet President Ricardo Romo and SGA President Zack Dunn and to talk with students," said Horne. "I walked around campus with President Romo and visited your great Rec Center and saw a number of other impressive buildings. This is the first campus I have visited, and I liked walking around to get to know the culture of the campus with a first-hand perspective.

"Being a student regent is a big task," he added. "It's an exciting time to be on the board, and I'm looking forward to visiting all of the UT campuses to see what students need and then sharing what I learn with the board."
