Such Great Heights
In 2012-2013, the Maverick Speakers Series continued to delight and enthrall the UT Arlington community and beyond. More than 14,000 attended our much-lauded fifth season, which included noted journalists Frank Deford and Cokie Roberts, Saturday Night Live funnyman Seth Myers, astronaut Mark Kelly, and TV personality and animal conservationist Jeff Corwin. And in an unprecedented special edition of the Maverick Speakers Series, the season closed with stunning performances by singer Aaron Neville and his special guest, jazz legend Ellis Marsalis.
We don’t like to rest on our laurels, so we’re challenging ourselves to make the 2013-2014 lineup bigger and better than ever. Check back for updates as we prepare to announce the new slate of big thinkers and huge entertainers who will grace the UT Arlington stage. And get ready to plan your next great night out on the town.
