EDINBURG - The University of Texas-Pan American Student Government Association Senate recently donated $500 to the UTPA library to be used towards the purchase of new books.
"The Student Government Association understands the importance of maintaining ample resources and is glad to assist in the pursuit to better serve the needs of the students and allow them to experience excellence," said Renuka Kondapavuluru, SGA senator for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. "One of the goals of the Student Government Association is to enhance the quality and scope of education for all the students of this University."
The UTPA library recently completed a three-story, 49,000-square-foot addition built by Wilson Construction Co., and designed by Ashley, Humprheys and Sanchez.
The new addition which is located on the West side of the library, will hold the rapidly growing collection of books, the library's technical service functions, study areas for library users, and two state-of-the-art computer instruction classrooms with teleconferencing and distance education capabilities.
