By John Shaffer
Outreach Specialist, Office of Financial Aid and Enrollment Services

(Jan. 31, 2008)--The UTSA Office of Student Financial Aid and Enrollment Services and several other UTSA offices will sponsor Financial Aid Awareness Month with a series of events throughout February. The events are to increase awareness of grants, scholarships, work-study jobs and loans -- and services available to undergraduate and graduate students.

Staff from the Office of Student Financial Aid and Enrollment Services will open the month with a pirate-themed open house, "Roadrunners of the Caribbean: The Hunt for Financial Aid," in John Peace Library Building Room 1.01.04 on the 1604 Campus. The kick-off event for students is 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 6.

At the open house, students will go on a financial aid treasure hunt through the newly remodeled office. In addition to learning about the various areas of financial aid, there will be free refreshments and chances to win prizes including an iPod Shuffle.

Other offices participating in events are Office of Admissions, Graduate School, Office of Housing and Residence Life, Office of Student Activities, Tomas Rivera Center and Campus Recreation.

For more information, call (210) 458-6741.
