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.

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.
