Shorthorn Shots of the Week 9/11

Yet another hectic week balancing school and work. This is also the first week in what seems like an eternity that I have not shot a video but focused more on stills. Labor Day and torrential rain made for an interesting week none the less. Let us all remember what happened on this day in history and I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, enjoy.

Civil engineering sophomore Ricky Ho, left, teaches social work sophomore Mado Assani how to play a song on the guitar Monday in the University Center. Assani said she likes to sing and Ho gave her his old guitar so that she could learn how to play. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
Civil engineering junior Ivan Romero pulls a front tire grab outside of University Hall on Monday. Romero said that he has been riding since December and originally bought the bike to get around campus, but started doing tricks as a study break. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
Reference librarian Tom Lindsey, left, chats with sociology senior Faye Hanson after she arrived to find the Central Library closed due to flooding Wednesday. Torrential rain caused leaks in the Central Library and maintenance shut off the electricity as a precaution. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
The “Private Collections II” exhibition, now showing through Oct. 16, in the Gallery at UTA showcases 20 works from four local DFW collections that illustrate the interaction between private and public display spaces. Art historian Benjamin Lima will give a talk on Sept. 22 at noon to discuss the works displayed in the gallery. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
Public relations and communication junior Robert Ostrout, left, and journalism junior Heath Rush admire the piece “A death, a fall, a march: toward a better world” by Robyn O’neil on Wednesday in The Gallery at UTA. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
Philosophy junior Elizabeth Perez will now be a part of two diamonds as a Texas Rangers Ball Girl and as the newest member of the Maverick softball team. Perez said that she tried other organizations on campus but she just had to play softball and she couldn’t live without it. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
Junior outside hitter Eld-hah Kawatuka has shown her ability to adapt to any situation both on and off the court in her two years at UTA after coming to America from the Congo when she was eight. This season, Kaswatuka is averaging a team-high 3.04 kills per set and 2.04 digs per set. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
