(Aug. 30, 2013) -- The UTSA Student Organization Council hosted a mixer at 12:30 p.m., Friday, in the University Center Denman Room, where the presidents of UTSA registered student organizations networked and talked about their plans for the new academic year. There are nearly 300 UTSA registered student organizations.

"This event is going well, and the food is fantastic," said Malcolm Ramey, a senior communication major representing the National Panhellenic Council and Phi Beta Sigma. "I've made some new connections with other fraternities."

Crystal Castro, a sophomore international business major, was at the mixer representing the Anime Club. "I've met a lot of the presidents of other clubs, and it has been a whole lot of fun," she said. "Our club sort of started out as a Japanese nerd-culture club and evolved into the Anime Club. There is another group kind of like us, but interested in American nerd culture. They're called the Nerd Fighters, and we're trying to coordinate an event together."

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.
