Parade and Pep Rally


School spirit shines brightest on game day. Before the Mavericks take on Cleveland State at College Park Center, the University is hosting a ton of fun activities that will remind you why you’re proud to call yourself a Maverick.

Get in the Game

Friday, November 15, 4 p.m.
Spaniolo Drive

The Party on PecanLet’s get this party started, Maverick style. The pre-game party gives you and your friends a chance to soak up the College Park District atmosphere and get the blue and orange spirit going before the game even starts. Get your face painted or adorn yourself with a temporary Maverick tattoo. Make your own spirit signs. Eat, drink, and be merry at College Park District restaurants before the parade starts. It’s a great way to start a spirited evening of fun.
