Signature Ambassador Programs include:

Ask Me! Days
During the first two days of each semester, Ambassadors are stationed at different tables around campus to help students find their way around the university to & from class. Printed information about campus activities, services & advising are provided as well.

The identity crisis at UTA is coming to an end! Just bring a hat or shirt from any other university and "swap" it for a FREE SHIRT! The items collected will be donated to charity. Location: UTA Library Mall

Hosting Functions
Ambassadors are asked to host & assist with different university functions throughout the year. It's a great opportunity to meet & greet prestigious alumni, university & community officials. Homecoming, Studio Arts Center Dedication, Chancellors Council Dinner, Fall Convocation, & Founders Day are just a few events Ambassadors have been asked to assist.

Free Scantrons
Forget your scantron, blue book, &/or pencil for the big final exam? No need to worry! Every semester, Ambassadors are set up at the Library Mall & UC Mall to pass out FREE scantrons and such to students on their way to the big test! Scantrons, Blue books, & pencils are donated by The UT Arlington  Bookstore.

Maverick Mondays
Who’s got spirit? MAVERICKS DO! Maverick Monday is a competition that allows students to come out and show off their spirit apparel, knowledge of the fight song, and knowledge of UT Arlington Trivia. Come out and show your Maverick pride!
