Dr. Frank Lamas

Dear Members of the University Community,

As vice president for The Division of Student Affairs at The University of Texas at Arlington, I would like to welcome you to Maverick Country and congratulate you on your decision to join our community. UT Arlington attracts some of the best and brightest students and we’re committed to providing you with the support and resources necessary for you to succeed both inside and outside of the classroom. I encourage you to become involved in campus life as a student at this university. Involved and engaged students will have a richer collegiate experience comprising the best years of their lives. They are also more likely to persist and succeed.

Within The Division of Student Affairs, you’ll uncover your key to involvement on campus with our wide variety of dynamic programs and services that will help you achieve your academic, professional, and personal goals.

Bring your student experience to life by joining a club or organization­–there are more than 330. Celebrate Maverick traditions with some of our time-honored events including Welcome Week, Oozeball, Bed Races, Heritage Months, The Big Event, SpringFest and more. Join us at the events, activities, concerts, and performances throughout the school year. Strengthen your leadership skills by becoming a student leader on campus by running for an elected position within Student Governance, becoming an orientation leader, working on campus or by taking advantage of the programs, retreats and organizations provided by The Leadership Center. Stay healthy and relieve stress with the fitness and wellness activities at the MAC. Take advantage of our student-centered support services including, disability services, relationship violence and sexual assault prevention services and more.

At UT Arlington, we invite you to have the time of your life. The faculty, staff and I look forward to getting to know you. We’re here to help you find your way, to grow, create ever-lasting memories and develop lifelong success with an unparalleled college life experience.

Please feel free to contact me at or stop by my office in 350 Davis Hall if I can ever be of assistance.
