UTA supports graduate student while hospitalized

A well known UTA graduate student was hospitalized early March due to a severe blood infection. Angelo Rios is an advanced UTA Radio DJ, recently he was released from Arlington Memorial Hospital after suffering from blood infection and back pain. Angelo tells us about his experience before being admitted into the hospital, and he thanks his fraternity brothers and the UTA community for all the support he’s received since his hospitalization.

Pi Kappa Phi President Harsh Mehta tells us how they found out about Angelo’s hospitalization, and what they did to support a brother while in need. Harsh said he immediately thought about raising money at school and created a Gofundme account to help with Angelo’s expenses. Thanks to Pi Kappa Phi members, and the UTA community they were able to raise over 7 thousand dollars to help with Angelo’s medical bills.

Angelo has been back on campus doing what he enjoys most, being a radio Dj. His show airs Saturday’s from 4p.m. to 6p.m. on UTAradio.com
