(Oct. 28, 2013) -- The UTSA Office of Student Life will present Aaron Cassill, UTSA professor of biology in the College of Sciences, who will deliver his chosen last words to the campus community at the inaugural "UTSA Last Lecture."

Free and open to the public, the event is 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 5 in the University Center Retama Auditorium (2.02.02) on the Main Campus.

A UTSA faculty member since 1993, Cassill is the winner of this year's Piper Professor Award for Outstanding Achievement and the 2012 Regents' Award.

The "UTSA Last Lecture" is an opportunity for faculty to share their wisdom and speak to students as if it were their last chance to present a lecture. The concept was made famous Sept. 18, 2007, by Randy Pausch, who gave his "Last Lecture" speech, "Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," at Carnegie Mellon.
