UTEP History Students Will Share Research Findings on UTEP History

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
May 2, 2013

El Paso, Texas – All UTEP history students are required to write an archive-based research paper as the final experience in the history major. During the spring 2013 semester, several students have been researching UTEP’s history as part of the University’s upcoming Centennial celebration. The student-researchers invite the interested public to attend a free information session from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, in the McNeely Room on the 6th floor of the University Library.

The students spent countless hours researching everything there is to know about the University, from the start of school to the present day. Their subjects range from the Chicano movement and its many organizations and students that made the movement successful, to the women studies and their own struggle in our school. Some students also focused on the military and its correlation to the success of this institute. Other subjects covered are the early years in the music department; as well as the relationship between the Mexican Revolution to the construction of our school.

During the reception, the student researchers will answer questions about the University’s history and will donate their papers to the University’s C. L. Sonnichsen Special Collections. Prizes will be given to the students with the best paper and to the presenter chosen by the audience in attendance.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to have studied this wonderful school,” said Christina Bretado, one of the students. “Everyone is invited! Hope to see you there!”
