(Aug. 30, 2013) -- The UTSA Student Organization Council hosted a mixer at 12:30 p.m., Friday, in the University Center Denman Room, where the presidents of UTSA registered student organizations networked and talked about their plans for the new academic year. There are nearly 300 UTSA registered student organizations.

"This event is going well, and the food is fantastic," said Malcolm Ramey, a senior communication major representing the National Panhellenic Council and Phi Beta Sigma. "I've made some new connections with other fraternities."

Crystal Castro, a sophomore international business major, was at the mixer representing the Anime Club. "I've met a lot of the presidents of other clubs, and it has been a whole lot of fun," she said. "Our club sort of started out as a Japanese nerd-culture club and evolved into the Anime Club. There is another group kind of like us, but interested in American nerd culture. They're called the Nerd Fighters, and we're trying to coordinate an event together."
