IT'S FRIDAY, MAY 24, 2013.
HELLO, I'M VERONIQUE MASTERSON!
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT EL PASO.
###

MORE BIG AND EXCITING CHANGES ARE COMING SOON TO THE OUTER CAMPUS!
A NEW RESIDENCE HALL PROJECT IS SCHEDULED TO BREAK GROUND NEXT MONTH.
IT'S EXPECTED TO HOUSE MORE THAN 350 STUDENTS.
THE PROJECT CONSISTS OF 83 TOTAL UNITS IN TWO FOUR-STORY RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS THAT INCLUDE ONE-BEDROOM EFFICIENCIES AND FOUR-BEDROOM/SIX-BED SUITES.
THE COMPLEX WILL SIT ON LAND NORTH OF THE HELEN OF TROY SOFTBALL COMPLEX AND IS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETE BY OCTOBER 2014.
###

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A WEEK MAKES!
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO OF SCHUSTER AVENUE.
CREWS HAVE BEEN BUSY RIPPING UP THE STREET BETWEEN SUN BOWL DRIVE AND PROSPECT STREET TO MAKE WAY FOR CONSTRUCTION OF THE new RAISED, TWO-LANE ROUNDABOUT, SOUTHWEST OF THE SCHUSTER PARKING GARAGE.
THE ROUNDABOUT IS PART OF THE SPUR 1966 PROJECT THAT WILL CONNECT PAISANO DRIVE TO SCHUSTER VIA A BRIDGE OVER INTERSTATE 10 NEAR THE YANDELL STREET OVERPASS.
A WALKWAY UNDERNEATH THE ROUNDABOUT WILL GIVE PEDESTRIANS SAFE PASSAGE FROM THE PARKING LOTS ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF SCHUSTER AVENUE TO THE UTEP CAMPUS.
THE ROUNDABOUT IS EXPECTED TO BE OPEN BY AUGUST 25 — JUST IN TIME FOR THE FALL 2013 SEMESTER.
###

FENCING IS NOW IN PLACE ON UNIVERSITY AVENUE WHERE CONSTRUCTION OF THE CENTENNIAL PLAZA WILL OCCUR.
THE PROJECT WILL FOREVER TRANSFORM THE CAMPUS CORE INTO A PEDESTRIAN-FRIENDLY PUBLIC SPACE.
GROVES OF MESQUITE TREES WILL SHADE A PASEO FOR STROLLING, SOCIALIZING AND/OR STUDYING.
MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT ONTHEMOVE.UTEP.EDU FOR UPDATES TO ALL OF THE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS HAPPENING ON AND AROUND CAMPUS.

ABOUT 150 INTELLIGENCE EXPERTS AND EDUCATORS CALLED UTEP HOME FOR MOST OF THIS WEEK FOR THE 9TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR INTELLIGENCE CONFERENCE.
THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME THE CONFERENCE HAD BEEN IN THE SOUTHWEST AND ONLY THE SECOND TIME IT HAD BEEN STAGED WEST OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER!
"EXPANDING THE FRONTIERS OF INTELLIGENCE EDUCATION" WAS THIS YEAR'S THEME.
ORGANIZERS SAID EL PASO'S IMPORTANCE AS A SECURITY CORRIDOR FOR THE NATION AND UTEP'S FOCUS ON INTELLIGENCE, DEFENSE AND SECURITY STUDIES WERE A FEW OF THE REASONS WHY THE ASSOCIATION HELD THE CONFERENCE HERE.
