Your Impact on Our Students and Campus Life
Mauricio Sanchez is a starting safety on the football team. A first-generation college student from San Antonio, he was recruited by other universities in Texas, but he knew that being part of the first UTSA Football team in his hometown could "be something special."
Larry Coker's arrival on campus in March 2009 as the first Roadrunners football coach was a fantastic moment for UTSA. With a national championship at Miami and two National Coach of the Year honors under his belt, Coker brings the skills and experience to forge a winning football program.
By the time Diana Cuervo arrived at UTSA, she had moved 17 times. A native of Columbia, she has lived all over the world as her family moved for her father's job. She aspires to earn her degree in finance so she can use her experiences in business.
If being a member of the marching band takes commitment and talent, then being a drum major for a brand new marching band in Texas takes passion and drive to the next level. Annie Moras has both, and she is making history as one of the leaders of the new Roadrunner marching band with scholarship support from unrestricted gifts to the university.
"The library has a different feeling. I never came to study here before, but now it is so beautiful. I like to come here," says Julia Gutierrez, an undergraduate business major.
Aracely Rodriguez, an undergraduate from Pharr, Texas, is not your typical librarian. As a student, she is reaching out to others and helping them use the library to its fullest extent. "To support students today, there are so many technologies available here, and it can be a challenge to navigate," she says.
Rod Sachs is a nontraditional student who is using his life experiences to help others. He came to UTSA to complete a bachelor's degree after attending Northwest Vista College. A member of the Honors College, Sachs used study abroad as an opportunity to take his learning to the next level through intense reflection and experience in another culture.
