InnovationDay@UTA

The second annual InnovationDay@UTA held Oct. 22 featured a student innovators competition, a technology showcase, faculty and student poster presentations, and sessions with guest panelists discussing entrepreneurship and how to engage angel investors. UTA Alumnus Fadi Bishara, founder and CEO of startup accelerator Blackbox, told the crowd, “What I’m doing now is going out and teaching to the rest of the world how things are done in Silicon Valley… But everything I’ve done, it all started here.”

Family Time

Hundreds of Maverick families got a taste of UTA excellence as they visited sons and daughters at their home away from home for Parent and Family Weekend Oct. 23‑25. The weekend included a Movin’ Mavs wheelchair basketball game and a barbecue dinner with President Vistasp Karbhari. As one Maverick Mom said, “I’m so proud of my daughter being here at UT Arlington. I love the school spirit, I love the professors, I just love the entire college experience!”
