(Oct. 31, 2013) -- UTSA students Zack Dunn and Rebecca Smith were named Mr. and Ms. UTSA during the halftime show at the Oct. 26 Homecoming football game. Sponsored by the UTSA Alumni Association, the award recognizes UTSA students striving for the highest levels of academic achievement, campus involvement and community service.

Showcasing some of UTSA's finest students, the 2013 Homecoming Court also included Robert Bennett, Miracle Cooke, Marc Flynn and Christine Velasquez.

Candidates competed in several categories including an application process, written essay, formal interview, fundraising and a student vote for the chance to be named Mr. and Ms. UTSA. This year, the 2013 Homecoming Court set an all-time record in fundraising by raising more than $12,900 for UTSA scholarships. While each member of the Homecoming Court would be a capable representative of the university, only two can claim the honor.

Rebecca Smith, a kinesiology major from Portland, Texas, shows her UTSA pride in many special ways. As a member of the UTSA Honors College and president of Zeta Tau Alpha, she represents UTSA through her many leadership and volunteer positions. She is a member of the UTSA Pre-Physical Therapy organization and is actively involved in football recruitment.

Zack Dunn, a finance major from San Antonio, shares his passion for UTSA with students every day. As Student Government Association president, he represents Roadrunner pride through interactions with students, administration and community leaders. He is a senior analyst in the UTSA College of Business Investment Society and has represented UTSA at many leadership conferences.

We are proud to have Zack and Rebecca serve as the 2013 Mr. and Ms. UTSA. Through the next year, they will represent the student body, UTSA Alumni Association and the university at a number of special events and functions.

For more information about Mr. and Ms. UTSA, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni@utsa.edu or 210-458-4133.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
