The first UTEP Town Hall Meeting open to the general public with new Director of Athletics Jim Senter will be Friday, February 16th at Tortuga Sports Lounge, 126 Shadow Mountain. 600 ESPN El Paso will be broadcasting the entire event from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. during Sportstalk.

The concept behind the Town Hall meeting is for Miners fans to voice their opinion on the things they feel that UTEP Athletics does well along with the things that need improvement. Last night, the first Town Hall Meeting was held at WestStar Bank. However, that event was closed to the public, but next Friday's Town Hall at Tortuga Sports Lounge will give any UTEP fan a chance to have their comments heard by Senter.

"In the coming months, we look forward to hearing from El Pasoans far and wide on ways that we can make their UTEP Athletics experiences better," Director of Athletics Jim Senter said in a press release. "Every person makes a difference! We’re excited to gather feedback from GECU, which has been a tremendous Pillar Partner of ours through IMG."

Tortuga Sports Lounge will offer three dollar tortas and a full kitchen with an extensive menu. In addition, domestic beers will be $1.50 through the Town Hall.
