Valentine’s Day MOS

Valentine’s Day is a holiday where many will plan a romantic date with their partners. For others, well it’s just another day to do study, spend with friends, or to just do nothing. I went for a walk around campus to find out what students at UTA had planned on this special day. For one student, his girlfriend lives across the country in India, but thanks to technology he will get to see and speak with her through Skype. Another student shared what would be the way to his heart, TACOS!

UTA Hall of Honors Celebration

While UTA’s standing as a Tier One research university for STEM fields, along with a prominent liberal arts department, there’s a side of the college that lies mostly unnoticed save for once a year. On that day, the College of Military Science and ROTC recognizes great people from the past and rewards them with immorality in the Hall of Honor. This year’s celebration was more special, as it signified a major landmark in the history of the organizations.

In April, UTA’s chapter of Relationship Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention held events to enlighten and educate the campus about Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The group is made up of university employees, peer educators who are trained to deal with a myriad of situations involving sexual and relationship violence, and average students who wanted to spread the word about the dangers of sexual assault on a college campus as well as worldwide.
