Happy holidays and thank you from the Javelina Alumni Association! 

In the spirit of the holiday season, we want to give back to you! We have put together two videos which showcase all of  the amazing efforts by our university and our Javelina alumni this year. The first video shares some of the many accomplishments that the university has experienced over the last few years thanks to your steadfast contributions.

The second video is a scrapbook that shares just a few of the many photos that were captured during a memorable Fall  2011 semester. Whether it was just a fun Saturday afternoon tailgating before a Javelina victory or a formal reception to recognize our donors and scholarship recipients, the last few months were full of good times and lasting images. 

We truly appreciate all that you do and wish you and your family a wonderful, safe and happy holiday season! We look forward to sharing more great memories with you in 2012.

Sarah Saldana becomes state's first Latina U.S. Attorney

Alumna Sarah Saldana made history last month when she became Texas' first Latina U.S. Attorney. Saldana, a 1973 graduate of Texas A&I University, was sworn in to office on November 18 for the Northern District of Texas in Dallas. She was nominated by President Barack Obama and approved unanimously by the U.S. Senate.

The event was covered by the Corpus Christi Caller Times and The Dallas Morning News. Interviews were also conducted by the local Fox affiliate in Dallas (in English) and Univision (in Spanish).
