Everywhere I look I see our students engaged in helping others and paying it forward. They engage in philanthropic endeavors and in community service projects here in Arlington and across the Metroplex. The UTA family is continually reaching out to those in need. It was wonderful seeing the women of our Delta Delta Delta sorority lead our campus in raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital earlier this month. The 3-on-3 basketball tournament was a local effort in support of a goal set by the national sorority to raise 60 million dollars in 10 years. Thanks to their activities and the support of students across campus who took part in various events families with children with some of the rarest forms of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases are able to envision a future of hope.
UTA has extraordinary students who care deeply for the world. Events such as these are essential to university life and to the community. I appreciate the time and effort that so many of you make to help those around you who are less fortunate.
There are many student organizations on campus that make notable contributions to the community through service and fundraising support. If you are not currently involved (and even if you are), the Division of Student Affairs can help you connect with worthy charitable organizations that are always in need of volunteers!
