Our Story

In 1924, a group of prominent El Paso women, led by Mrs. Frank H. Seamon, organized the El Paso Women’s Association of the College of Mines (Sponsors’ Club), which later became known as the Woman’s Auxiliary. The charter members, aware of the college’s increasing needs, aimed “to do any and all things conducive to the betterment of the College and ultimate welfare of the student body.” The ladies worked tirelessly to raise funds for student loans and to help pay faculty salaries. They supported dormitories, gyms, and athletic teams, organized band and music programs, and developed the library. The club members worked to beautify and landscape the barren campus. Among many other projects, the women also started and staffed the Pick ‘n’ Shovel cafeteria, the first campus dining facility. Later the group supported the building of the Centennial Museum and purchased collections for the museum. The Woman’s Auxiliary of UTEP has supported generations of UTEP students through various fundraising projects, including the annual Scholarship Benefit Luncheon. Nearly a century later, the membership of the Woman’s Auxiliary of UTEP has grown to more than 300 loyal UTEP supporters. Recent fundraising efforts have raised over $275,000 to support educational endeavors at the University.
