The Texas Army National Guard has reached an agreement with the
University of Texas at Arlington that will ensure soldiers studying at
the school will continue to receive up to $4,500 a year in military
tuition assistance, the Austin American-Statesman
reported. But the National Guard continues to negotiate with the
University of Texas at Austin over the billing dispute, which could
impact 24 student soldiers. The story also was picked up by Stars and Stripes and noted on the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Extra Credit blog.
Shape magazine interviews Trowbridge
Cindy Trowbridge, an associate professor and clinical educator
coordinator of the athletic training education program at UT Arlington,
is quoted by Shape magazine
in an article on “Marathon Training for the Real World.” Trowbridge
said: “All too often during real-life marathons we forget to drink or we
drink dehydrating beverages such as coffee or alcohol, for example.
Even a 2 to 3 percent loss in body weight is significant dehydration."
UTA News en Español highlighted
La Prensa Hispanos and Fox News Latino
reported on the opportunity UTA News en Español affords students
interested in working for national Spanish-language media outlets. The
weekly newscast magazine is broadcast via a Communication Department
website. Broadcast journalism instructor Julian Rodriquez said the
newscast is unique in Texas and important in a state where residents
expect Spanish-language broadcasts. “It's a pretty revolutionary program
since it's the only one of its kind in Texas, a state where you'd hope
there would be more programs like this. When we share the news program
online or over social networks, we get some very favorable comments from
all over the United States and even from Spain,” he said.
