The UTA Theater Department performed the Musical “Into The Woods.”  The musical is a twist on fairytales that we all know well. The musical was an exciting change to the stories mixed with some comedic relief.

The week after Spring Break, the lawn in front of the Arlington Police Department was occupied with protesters demanding answers for the death of Johnathan Paul. Mr. Paul was picked up the Monday of Spring break and taken into custody for outstanding warrants. Tuesday night he was found unresponsive in his cell and taken to Arlington Memorial Hospital where, on Friday March 13th, he was pronounced dead. There is video of the cell where Mr. Paul was being held but has yet to be released pending the completion of the investigation APD is conducting.

Grad Week at UTA

It’s still seven weeks until graduation but senior are already preparing for the big day. Last week was Grad Week on campus where students would visit the UTA bookstore and purchase your cap and gown. Honors cords could be purchased as well along with the specific tassel for each college. The cap and gown went through several changes last year. A blue sleeve was added along with a orange trim to show both of the school colors. It personalizes the experience and makes the event feel more special. This is also a time for students to be thinking about plans after graduation.

The time to file your taxes is here, and college students around the nation have the opportunity to receive free money to pay for school. The only thing they have to do is to fill out and submit the free application to receive federal financial aid or better known as FAFSA.  In the years 2011-2012 over 2 million students nationally did not complete the application to receive financial aid, and over 9 billion dollars were left on the table. Students sometimes can only qualify for loans when attending a community college and get discouraged to apply again.

Hispanic Growth

The University of Texas at Arlington stays on track as the second largest campus in the UT system just behind the University of Texas at Austin. UTA is one of the more diverse schools in the nation, and in great part is because of the changes in demographics around campus… The community is changing and this reflects the student population. New demographic statistics show UTA has reached more than 48 thousand students enrolled, whether it is in campus or online. One trend helping UTA reaching new enrollment heights is the continuous growth of the Hispanic student population.
