A concert composed and directed by UT Arlington senior Jesus
Martinez, "Threnody for 9-11," will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, in Irons Recital Hall, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
Foreign policy questions
In a KDFW/FOX 4
story related to the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Brent Sasley, UT
Arlington assistant professor of political science, said a complete
withdrawal of the U.S. military from Afghanistan and Iraq would be a
mistake. "I think that would be opening the door for the spread of
influence of enemies of the United States or others who the United
States has disagreements with, like the Taliban in Afghanistan or Iran
and Iraq," Sasley said.
UT Arlington ROTC Color Guard appeared in a segment on the WFAA/Channel 8's Good Morning Texas
on Wednesday, which focused on Operation Sweet 16. The movement,
started by a North Texas girl who turns 16 on March 16, aims to raise
$16,000 for U.S. soldiers in financial need.
Muslim students remember
Three UT Arlington Muslim Student Association members were interviewed in a KDAF Channel 33
story about how the tragedy of 9-11 changed the way some people looked
at Muslims. "We didn't realize that, 'Oh, this guy claims to be Muslim,
and he's doing this in the name of God, according to him.' So, we didn't
realize the repercussions at the time," said Nadia Syed, one of the UT
Arlington students who was in sixth grade at the time of the attacks.
Student gallery owner
Kevin Rubén Jacobs is a typical art student -- he studies hard, works hard, and spends most of his time creating something, the KXAS Channel 5
website reported. However, something that makes the 22-year-old UT
Arlington student quite different is that he owns his own art gallery,
the Oliver Francis Gallery in Deep Ellum.
