IT'S FRIDAY, MAY 10TH, 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.
###

A GROUP OF UTEP STUDENT ENTREPRENEURS IS MAKING WAVES AFTER WINNING $100,000 AT THE UT HORIZON FUND STUDENT INVESTMENT COMPETITION IN AUSTIN MAY 2ND.
AMERICAN WATER RECYCLING BEAT OUT 15 OTHER TEAMS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS SYSTEM SCHOOLS!
THEIR EL PASO COMPANY USES THE LATEST MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGY TO PROVIDE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND WATER RECYCLING OPTIONS AT AFFORDABLE PRICES.
IN MAY, THE TEAM WON $10,000 AT THE PASO DEL NORTE VENTURE COMPETITION.
CONGRATULATIONS TO EVA DEEMER, DIEGO CAPELETTI AND ALEX PASTOR.
###

CAPELETTI WILL CELEBRATE ANOTHER ACHIEVEMENT WHEN HE JOINS MORE THAN 2,500 OTHER GRADUATING STUDENTS DURING UTEP'S 2013 SPRING COMMENCEMENT ON SATURDAY, MAY 18TH.
IF YOU CAN'T BE THERE, MAKE SURE TO LOG ONTO 2013COMMENCEMENT.UTEP.EDU TO WATCH ALL THREE CEREMONIES LIVE ONLINE.
STUDENTS FROM THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS GRADUATE AT 9 A.M.; FROM THE COLLEGES OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND EDUCATION AT 2 P.M.; AND FROM THE COLLEGES OF ENGINEERING, SCIENCE, HEALTH SCIENCES; AND THE SCHOOL OF NURSING AT 7 P.M.
BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT TO THE DON HASKINS CENTER, CHECK OUT UTEP.EDU/COMMENCEMENT.
THERE YOU'LL FIND INFORMATION ABOUT WHERE TO PARK, INCLUDING THE BEST PARKING OPTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES.
###

PROVIDING ACCESS TO THE CAMPUS WHILE MANEUVERING AROUND ITS BEAUTIFUL TRANSFORMATION IS WHAT ONTHEMOVE.UTEP.EDU IS ALL ABOUT!
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS AREA BEHIND ME — I'M AT THE INTERSECTION OF UNIVERSITY AVENUE AND HAWTHORNE STREET.
THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME THE CAMPUS WILL LOOK LIKE THIS BEFORE IT CHANGES FOREVER.
ON MONDAY, MAY 20TH CONSTRUCTION WILL BEGIN ON WHAT WILL BE THE EXPANSIVE CENTENNIAL PLAZA.
IT WILL BE A LARGE, OPEN GRASSY AREA IN THE HEART OF CAMPUS FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY.
THE PLAZA WILL BE SURROUNDED BY A PASEO LINED WITH NATIVE MESQUITE TREES AND WILL BE THE SIGNATURE PIECE OF THE UTEP CAMPUS TRANSFORMATION.
WHILE THE UNIVERSITY AVENUE ENTRANCES TO CAMPUS WILL REMAIN OPEN, THE ROAD WILL NO LONGER BE A THROUGH STREET.
HAWTHORNE STREET WILL ALSO BE CLOSED TO THROUGH TRAFFIC.
PARKING PERMIT HOLDERS WILL BE ABLE TO ENTER HAWTHORNE THROUGH THE GATE NEAR RIM ROAD, BUT THE STREET WILL DEAD END AT THE ACADEMIC ADVISING CENTER.
WITH THE USE OF NEW ROUTES, THE CAMPUS WILL REMAIN OPEN AND ACCESSIBLE TO THE UTEP AND EL PASO COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE CONSTRUCTION PERIOD.
DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU'RE HEADED, THE SCHUSTER, SUN BOWL, AND GLORY ROAD PARKING GARAGES WILL LIKELY BE THE BEST PARKING OPTIONS.
ADA ACCESS TO THE CAMPUS BUILDINGS WILL, OF COURSE, CONTINUE.
###

WIGGINS ROAD WILL REOPEN TO TRAFFIC NEXT FRIDAY, MAY 17TH — ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT QUITE FINISHED.
THE LANDSCAPING OF THAT AREA WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE SUMMER AND IS EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETE FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE FALL 2013 SEMESTER.
THE PROJECT INVOLVES AN OVAL-SHAPED, MULTILEVEL PLAZA THAT WILL INCLUDE SHADE TREES, CURVED BENCHES, SOLAR LIGHTING AND A UNIQUE LABYRINTH.
ONTHEMOVE.UTEP.EDU IS THE SITE TO VISIT FOR UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION AND WHERE YOU'LL FIND MAPS TO HELP GUIDE YOU TO YOUR DESTINATION WHETHER YOU'RE ON CAMPUS EVERYDAY OR EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.
THIS IS AN EXCITING TIME AND WE'RE GLAD YOU CAN JOIN US AS WE BUILD A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR PEDESTRIANS WHILE PROVIDING GREATER OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR STUDENTS TO EXCEL.

I'M VERONIQUE MASTERSON.
WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT FRIDAY.
GO MINERS!
