Maverick Stampede (Welcome Week) is the official kick-off to the new academic year. During Welcome Week, which coincides with the first week of classes, students experience a number of fun and exciting programs centered on integrating new and returning students back to campus; including MavsMeet.
MavsMeet, the New Student Convocation, is a formal assembly commemorating the beginning of the academic year. The event took place in College Park Center. This major academic event honors all undergraduate and graduate students, but particularly new UT Arlington students. Faculty, staff, alumni and parents are also welcome to attend.
