IT'S FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 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.

MINER NATION, IT'S TIME TO START PLANNING THE SECOND ANNUAL UTEP ALUMNI PICK-NIC IN YOUR AREA!
LAST YEAR WAS A GREAT SUCCESS AND A LOT FUN WITH ALUMNI IN MORE THAN A DOZEN CITIES AROUND THE WORLD, INCLUDING THE KINGDOM OF BHUTAN, COMING TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE BEING MINERS!
THIS YEAR'S PICK-NIC WILL BE from 3 TO 7 P.M. SATURDAY, JULY 13 AT MEMORIAL PARK.
TO RSVP OR TO HOST A PICK-NIC IN YOUR AREA, CONTACT THE UTEP OFFICE OF ALUMNI RELATIONS AT ALUMNI.UTEP.EDU

DR. DELFINA DOMINGUEZ, PROFESSOR OF CLINICAL LABORATORY SCIENCES, HAS RECEIVED A GRANT TO DEVELOP A DEVICE THAT WILL DIAGNOSE WHOOPING COUGH.
SHE HAS TEAMED UP WITH DR. JAMES LI, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF CHEMISTRY, WHO IS CONSTRUCTING A PAPER FABRICATED BIOCHIP THAT WILL PROVIDE A RAPID, LOW-COST AND CONVENIENT WAY TO DETECT THE HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS RESPIRATORY DISEASE.
IT WOULD ALLOW MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS TO DETECT WHOOPING COUGH, ALSO CALLED PERTUSSIS, IN A PATIENT BY USING A SWAB FROM THE PATIENT'S NOSE.
THE USER-FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGY COULD BE USED IN SCHOOLS AND DOCTORS' OFFICES.
AS OF RIGHT NOW, PERTUSSIS TESTS CAN ONLY BE CONDUCTED IN HOSPITALS OR LABORATORIES.

THIS TYPE OF HANDS-ON RESEARCH IS WHAT STUDENTS CAN LOOK FORWARD TO WHEN THEY ENROLL AT UTEP.
THE REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE NOT ONLY GIVES STUDENTS AN ACADEMIC EDGE, BUT A PROFESSIONAL ONE AS WELL.
THOSE INTERESTED STILL HAVE TIME TO ENROLL IN UTEP'S SUMMER SESSION II, WHICH BEGINS JULY 8.
VISIT UTEP.EDU/ADMISSIONS FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO CHECK OUT THE MORE THAN 3,500 CLASSES THAT WILL BE OFFERED DURING THE 2013 FALL SEMESTER.

WE HAVE UPDATED IMAGES AND INFORMATION TO SHARE WITH YOU ABOUT UTEP'S NEW STUDENT HOUSING COMMUNITY.
PHASE ONE OF THE PROJECT BROKE GROUND THIS WEEK BEHIND THE HELEN OF TROY SOFTBALL COMPLEX.
THIS PROJECT INCLUDES TWO HOUSING COMPLEXES THAT WILL ACCOMMODATE 352 STUDENTS AND A COMMONS BUILDING WITH STAFF OFFICES, A COMPUTER LAB, AND A MEETING HALL.
TAKE A LOOK AT THESE NEWLY RELEASED RENDERINGS — THEY'RE A SNEAK PEEK INSIDE THE BHUTANESE-STYLE BUILDINGS WITH COLORFUL WALLS AND SIMPLE FURNITURE.
A UNIVERSITY SHUTTLE AND BICYCLE LANE WILL PROVIDE DIRECT LINKS FROM THE HOUSING COMMUNITY TO THE CAMPUS CORE.
THE FIRST PHASE IS SET TO BE COMPLETE BY SPRING 2015.
###

MAKE SURE TO VISIT ONTHEMOVE.UTEP.EDU TO FOLLOW WEEKLY UPDATES ABOUT THE PROJECTS TRANSFORMING THE UTEP CAMPUS.
NOT SURE WHERE TO PARK?
THE WEBSITE IS YOUR RESOURCE TO MAPS, ROUTES, ACCESS AND ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS.
AS CONSTRUCTION MOVES ALONG AND STUDENTS RETURN TO THE CAMPUS FOR SUMMER CLASSES, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PLAN AHEAD AND ARRIVE AT YOUR DESTINATION EARLIER THAN YOU NORMALLY WOULD.
