Get involved with the UTA Wranglers! Throughout the entire year, Wranglers serve as the super fans of the University. This particular spirit group is known to wear striped blue and orange overalls and spread school spirit. They cheer at athletic events, show their Maverick pride, and make appearances around campus and at community events. For more information on how to join the UTA Wranglers, send us an email.

Meet Alexa

I am a captain of the Wranglers and I have gained friendships for a lifetime. I now understand that all UTA students come from different backgrounds. The Wranglers have taught me that no matter our background, we can stand together and cheer for something we love! Our school spirit brought us together. On my first day at UTA, I got lost and missed my very first class but I was able to push through and now that I have met so many people at UTA through Spirit Groups, I am able to find my way on campus and always arrive early for all my classes.
