(Jan. 27, 2014) -- The UTSA Office of Student Financial Aid and Enrollment Services has named Erika Cox as director of enrollment services. Cox previously was associate director of enrollment services and has 10 years of experience in various enrollment services capacities.
"Student Enrollment Services provides a one-stop shop for students, ensuring they are set up for success," said Lisa Blazer, associate vice president for financial aid and enrollment services. "Whether it is registration, financial aid, tuition and fee payments or PIN and password resets, they interact with students on a daily basis.
"As we move toward Tier One, it will be imperative for Enrollment Services to provide quality service that helps prospective and current students navigate through many enrollment processes. Ms. Cox has already proven that service is her number one priority as the lead for the call center, and I believe she is the ideal person to move us to the next level of service as the new director for enrollment services at UTSA."
In addition to her prior post as associate director, Cox brings a wide array of enrollment services expertise to the position including experience as a member of the call center team as supervisor, senior training specialist and communications point person for enrollment services.
She also is highly involved in professional associations. She has presented at the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) annual conference and the Texas state conference of the association. She also served as conference chair for the group's Southwest region.
"The staff in Enrollment Services is dedicated to helping students enroll and be successful at UTSA," said Cox. "Having the opportunity to lead this team as UTSA continues its path toward Tier One status is an honor, and I look forward to collaborating across campus to make students' enrollment experience go smoothly."
For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.
Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.
Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
All campuses will be closed for the Labor Day holiday.
