Parent & Family Weekend is a long standing tradition at the University of Texas Arlington. Every October parents and families spend a weekend on campus to see what it is really like to be a Maverick.  Families have the chance to explore campus through the lens of their UT Arlington student, participate in family-friendly activities, engaging demonstrations and spirted competitions.  It is a weekend filled with good ole fashion family fun, you won't want to miss it!
