“While at UTSA, I lived in Chisholm hall from 1986 to 1987. It was great living in the dorms. They were big and roomy, and my best friend was my roommate. We had a lot of fun in our dorm experience. I was also a Lambda Chi Alpha little sister, where I made a lot of friends. Attending the White Rose Formal with my then college boyfriend, Robert Ruiz, was a great memory. Little sister initiation was special and lots of fun. I also loved my English courses and professors. My favorite professors were Dr. Wendy Barker and Dr. Margaret McBride.

Upon returning as UTSA faculty in the College of Education and Human Development in 2001, the university had grown so much! I loved my time teaching future teachers and empowering them with the tools to be the very best teachers that they could be.

UTSA has changed so much, and I am proud that I was a student during that first year of dorm living and a faculty member as UTSA grew. I also recall only having a few places to eat, like the Pizza Hut or Church’s Chicken on 1604, a few traffic lights on 1604 and no Fiesta Texas or La Cantera. We still had fun though. I cherish those days as a student.”
