UTPA and the P.O.W.E.R. Center are Helping Athletic Students
UTPA Bronc athletes live a busy life no matter what sport they're involved in, they find themselves practicing an average of 20 hours a week and when they're not playing at home.
They're on the road, sometimes for days at a time to participate in away games, Even with this added pressure, statistics show these young men and women are out performing the general student body population when it comes to their grade point average. In hopes of keeping the momentum going, UTPA administrators with the support of $40,000 grant from the NCAA, opened the new P.O.W.E.R. Center which stands for Promotes Overall Wellness, Excellence and Responsibility.
