Join an Alumni Group to Stay Connected
It’s an exciting time to be a Maverick, and you don’t have to live near Arlington to stay plugged in to your alma mater. As enrollment surges and more students graduate, it’s easy to find UT Arlington alumni throughout Texas and beyond. Chances are there’s an alumni group near you, organized by former students who share a common interest. Perhaps they live in the same city, work in the same industry, or have the same heritage.
UT Arlington has three types of alumni groups—chapter, professional, and special interest. Alumni chapters are based in Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas, with more on the way. Professional groups have been established for architecture, business, and nursing and help graduates reconnect with friends and colleagues within their professions and academic disciplines. Special interest groups include African-American, Cadet Corps, Hispanic, Native American, and athletics. A group can form any time. Alumni Association staff members provide program advice, tailored websites, and marketing.
While groups like the Greater Dallas Alumni Chapter, above, commonly gather for happy hours and cheer on the Mavericks at watch parties, many also raise funds for scholarships and mentor current and future students. Opportunities for involvement are endless, including volunteering. Alumni groups could not succeed without the volunteers who serve as a lifeline to UT Arlington and whose leadership and passion ignite Maverick spirit. The Alumni Association is committed to helping graduates stay close to their alma mater. For information, visit utaalumni.org/alumnigroups.
