Texas Army National Guard reaches agreement with UTA

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.
