Mavericks Personified
Bright minds and distinctive personalities thrive at UT Arlington

Why? Because people here are free to be themselves—not just in name, but in their very nature. They’re intellectual adventurers with novel ideas who ponder the questions as much as the answers. Free spirits with passion and ambition who choose to travel down only one path—the one they create for themselves. They seek out people with a kindred spirit, places where nobody limits what they can achieve. They’re inquisitive, creative, determined and innovative. They’re mavericks.
