With all the talk these days about the Super Bowl and the Olympics, you can't help but think about the hard work and perseverance it took for those athletes to reach such lofty heights. The same is happening at The University of Texas-Pan American as we think about achievement and success and celebrate our ranking on Forbes magazine's 2009 list of "America's Best Public Colleges." It wasn't easy to reach the point of being named 32nd best public college in the U.S.—and 3rd among Texas' universities—and it didn't happen overnight. The foundation for this great achievement was laid by the tens of thousands of students, the many committed faculty, staff and administrators, and the legions of dedicated alumni and friends who have walked the halls of this great University during its 83-year history. For all who came before us—and for our University Community of 2010—we thank each of you for helping UTPA become the 3rd best public university in Texas!
