(Nov. 1, 2013) -- The UTSA Office of Undergraduate Admissions recently hosted its annual UTSA Day. More than 1,100 guests including prospective students and their families came from across Texas to visit UTSA, making it one of the most successful events to date.
"UTSA Day is our largest recruitment for the university and is instrumental in showcasing all our university has to offer for prospective students" said Marc Morales, assistant director of admissions. "The Welcome Center and Office of Admissions would like to thank all of our campus partners for helping make the day such a huge success."
UTSA Day is an opportunity for students interested in learning more about UTSA to experience campus life and see what it's like to be a Roadrunner. Prospective students and their families began the day with a performance by the Spirit of San Antonio Marching Band and an official welcome by UTSA Athletic Director Lynn Hickey.
That afternoon, students toured the Main Campus, attended an information fair, participated in information sessions on the nine UTSA colleges, learned about financial aid and scholarships, visited campus housing and learned about other student services.
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.
