(Oct. 14, 2013) -- UTSA Academic Advising will host the Rowdy Experience information fair for students from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 15 at the University Center first floor adjacent to the UTSA Bookstore on the Main Campus.
A luncheon and information panel will be 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in the University Center Denman Room (2.02.28) in the University Center. The event is open to UTSA students in need of additional resources for the start of the new academic year.
Rowdy Experience offers resources and fun for students, incorporating a Monopoly game theme in the information fair, luncheon and panel presentation. Students can meet with representatives from departments across campus including a one-hour presentation by the Health Professions Office in a meeting room near the activities. There will be games, prizes and catered food from Bill Miller restaurants.
"Rowdy Experience is an all-inclusive event designed to help students from all classifications succeed at UTSA," said Jessica Williams, co-chair of the event. "We encourage all students to come out and have a great time. This is sure to be an informative experience we hope they will 'monopolize.'"
Formerly called Sophomore Day and Sophomore Transition Fair, the new version of the event is for all students in need of additional support as they acclimate to university life and choose their major.
UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.
That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.
Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
