Let the school year begin
Organizers expect MavsMeet to become a campus tradition

Chanting "Go big blue," 1,800 students representing 54 campus organizations paraded from the E.H. Hereford University Center to Texas Hall for the first MavsMeet Fall Convocation. Held the first day of the fall semester, the event informed and entertained new and returning students with speeches, skits and music. Students learned the alma mater and the proper way to extend their thumb and pinky to form the school?s spirit sign. Following the convocation, they headed to the east lawn of the Activities Building for food, bands, an illusionist and interactive games. "The event was a great way for freshmen to see what goes on at UTA and to get a feel for what the year is going to bring," said Kristin Kyser, a freshman from Johnson City, Texas. Organizers expect MavsMeet to become a campus tradition.
