(May 26, 2011)--Each year, UTSA student organizations such as VOICES (Volunteer Organization Involving Community Education and Service) partner with the Office of Facilities by volunteering to assist with campus improvement initiatives.

This year, Jennifer Rames, UTSA assistant director of the inclusion and community engagement center, met with Facilities representatives to offer their assistance in cleaning up debris in some of the wooded areas on the Main Campus that line Sam Barshop Boulevard and parking lot 10.

Facilities provided garbage bags, gloves and grabbers to more than 30 students who participated in this year's spring cleanup. Student volunteers representing several Greek organizations as well as eight students from an undergraduate biology class assisted with check-in, set-ups and teardowns, and other students who volunteered to pick up debris and litter.

Facilities staff members thank the UTSA student organizations that helped make this year’s Main Campus spring cleanup a success. The event will be expanded next spring to help keep UTSA clean and beautiful for everyone to enjoy.

Student organizations participating in the spring cleanup were:

  • VOICES
  • Green Society
  • Alpha Sigma Alpha
  • Pi Kappa Phi
  • Sigma Lambda Alpha
  • Honors Alliance
  • Student Government Association
  • Class of Matthew Gdovin, associate professor of biology
  • SKY
