Ambassador Events

Ask Me Days
During the first two days of each semester, Ambassadors are stationed at tables around campus to answer questions and help students find their way around the campus. The UTA Ambassadors distribute campus maps and assist students in finding their academic buildings. 

Trade in those old school rags for some designer Maverick duds! Bring a t-shirt from another university or college, and the UTA Ambassadors will swap it with a brand new, UT Arlington t-shirt for FREE! The items collected are donated to charity. This traditional event is hosted three times a year during Welcome Week, Homecoming Week, and Spirit Week.

Maverick Speakers Series
The UTA Ambassadors are the official hosts and hostesses of the Maverick Speakers Series. Mr. and Ms. UTA welcome the guest speaker to campus while the UTA Ambassadors serve as greeters and ushers during the lecture. The Ambassadors also assist in publicizing the Maverick Speakers Series on campus by showing short videos of the upcoming speakers at student organization meetings.

Paint the Town Blue
The UTA Ambassadors, in partnership with CollegeTown UTA, strive to "Paint the Town Blue" by encouraging local businesses to show their Maverick pride! At least once a semester, the UTA Ambassadors give UTA spirit items (such as UTA flags, pennants, t-shirts, athletic posters, and decals) to area businesses to put up in their stores. We want everyone to celebrate UT Arlington and be proud to be a Maverick! 

Decorate Downtown
To take "Paint the Town Blue" to the next level, the UTA Ambassadors revamped the Downtown Arlington Homecoming Challenge and started Decorate Downtown in 2018 to encourage student organizations and businesses in Downtown Arlington to decorate their storefronts with Maverick Pride during Homecoming Week. Participating students organizations and businesses paint their store windows, fly UTA flags, and decorate the outside of businesses to show the Arlington community that something special is happening at UT Arlington. The business with the best decorations in crowned the "Most Spirited" business in Downtown Arlington and receives a trophy, along with other Maverick prizes. 

Pep Rallies 
Who’s got spirit? MAVERICKS DO! Pep rallies allow students to come out and show off their Maverick apparel, knowledge of the fight song, and knowledge of UT Arlington Trivia. The UTA Ambassadors host pep rallies throughout each semester to get everyone excited about being a Maverick!

Arlington Parades
The UTA Ambassadors represent UT Arlington in Arlington community parades. For the 4th of July and Holiday Lights parades, the UTA Ambassadors show their Maverick pride by recruiting student leaders to ride in the parade, along with the Maverick cheerleaders, dancers, and Blaze! 

Hosting Events
The UTA Ambassadors are asked to host & assist with different university events throughout the year. It's a great opportunity for Ambassadors to meet prestigious alumni, university officials, and community leaders, while representing UT Arlington as some of the elite student leaders on campus. MavsMeet Convocation, UTA Night at the Levitt, Graduation Celebration, Parent & Family Weekend, and Homecoming are just a few of the high-profile events that Ambassadors have been asked to host.

Late Night Shopping at Target
Late night shopping at Target is an event hosted by the UTA Ambassadors usually during Welcome Week each year.  Come enjoy door prizes, games while you shop with your fellow Mavericks.  (Transportation provided to and from.)
