(April 16, 2013) -- The University Co-Op Longhorn Fiesta Medal is always a hot-selling item. In fact, in the last two years, proceeds from the medals have helped raise more than $50,000 to benefit San Antonio charities.

This year, the University Co-Op is keeping it in the UT family by naming the UTSA Alumni Association Scholarships as one of the recipients of the proceeds. The University Co-Op, a partner with the Alumni Association, has a dedicated area in their Quarry shopping center location for UTSA wear and gear. UTSA Alumni Association members receive a 10-percent discount.

"The University Co-Op and the UTSA Alumni Association are family," said Brian Jewel, Co-Op vice president of marketing. "We enjoy working with the association, and we do our best to help them any way we can."

This year, the UTSA Alumni Association will award $200,000 in scholarships. The association has awarded more than $1.2 million in scholarships since 1982.

"With partners like the University Co-Op, our Alumni Association has been able to grow by leaps and bounds and keep the flow of scholarships going to deserving students," said Jim Mickey, associate vice president for UTSA alumni programs.

The Longhorn Fiesta Medal can be purchased for $8 at the University Co-Op in the Quarry shopping center.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
