(Sept. 20, 2013) -- UTSA Campus Recreation invites students and the UTSA community to participate in the seventh annual Rowdy Rec Run at 9 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Rec Center on the Main Campus.

"Campus Recreation continually strives to produce events that assist in strengthening the UTSA and greater San Antonio community ties," said Steve Kudika, assistant director of fitness at UTSA Campus Recreation. "This 5K race and fun run is open to all ability levels. We hope the community joins us for this health and wellness event."
UTSA students, faculty and staff members and the San Antonio community are welcome to attend this all-ages event. Registered runners will receive a special event t-shirt, food and drink, and will be entered for a chance to win door prizes. Awards will be given to the first three female and male participants. Results for overall winners will be based on gun time, and age group results will be based on chip time

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.
