(Sept. 27, 2013) -- The UTSA Office of Undergraduate Admissions has named Beverly Woodson Day as UTSA's new director of undergraduate admissions effective Oct. 1. Day has 20 years of experience and will oversee day-to-day and strategic operations for admissions.

"The Office of Admissions plays a vital role in facilitating a great education and college experience for UTSA students," said George E. Norton, associate vice president for student affairs. "As UTSA continues its march toward Tier One, it is imperative that we attract and enroll the best and brightest students. This goal requires that the office consistently provides great service to prospective and admitted students. Ms. Day is the ideal person to lead us forward, and I look forward to tapping the expertise that she brings to admissions at UTSA."

Day comes to UTSA from Texas State University, where she worked and led in many capacities across their admissions and orientation operations. She brings experience as an administrative professional, educator and researcher.

"I feel very blessed and excited to be a part of this university," said Day. "I have worked with several UTSA faculty and staff in differing capacities in years past, and I am aware of the high caliber of excellence the university is known to provide. I'm excited to contribute to that forward momentum."

Highly respected among her peers in education and admissions, Day is a member of several professional organizations including the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education, American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, Texas Association for College Admissions Counseling, National Association for College Admissions Counseling, Texas Association for Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers and NAFSA (The Association of International Educators).

Day also has published research about adult learners in college and African-American male pursuit of post-secondary education. Additionally, she has presented research projects on a variety of subjects at education conferences across the country. Currently, Day is researching the persistence of black students in STEM majors, which she will continue at UTSA.

Day received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Physics with a minor in mathematics, a Master of Arts Degree in Developmental and Adult Education, and is a candidate for a Doctorate of Education Degree in Adult, Professional and Community Education from Texas State University.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
