BMES Tournament

There are many ways UTA organizations raise funds to ensure their success. The Biomedical Engineering Students Society chose to host a gaming tournament involving a popular gaming series as a creative way to express their interests and bring people together. The event was comprised of three tournaments that took place simultaneously, and the funds were raised through entry fees and concessions. Students and gaming enthusiasts arrived to compete for prizes and bragging rights.

Online Enrollment

Enrollment at UTA is reaching new heights. Pursuing a degree outside the classroom is becoming more common, and online enrollment continues to grow.

Trampoline Park

The UTA BSM recently invited students from UTA and other local college campuses to an event at The Flight Deck. The trampoline park hosted an evening of fun, food, and friendship. The BSM employed methods to follow-up with people who are interested in the ministry or in learning more about the gospel. Some students enjoyed the experience, and expressed their willingness to learn more about the organization. Information about weekly meetings and upcoming events can be found at:

Academic Integrity

Many students are experiencing life pressures that may cause them to falter morally. It is important to uphold ones academic integrity because establishing good habits now will equip you for the future. While students navigate this moral grey area, faculty at UTA continue to convey their expectations through syllabi and enforcing a stringent policy against cheating.
