crowd of students at mavsmeet


UT Arlington kicked off the fall 2014 semester with Maverick Stampede, a week devoted to welcoming Mavericks to campus with entertainment, educational programs, and social events. A highlight was MavsMeet Convocation, a formal assembly that marks the beginning of the academic year. The more than 2,000 students, faculty, and staff attending the annual event in College Park Center enjoyed remarks from popular radio DJ Edward “Shoboy” Sotelo. MavsMeet was followed by music, games, food, and fun at the AfterParty on The Green at College Park. Throughout the week, new Mavericks participated in other traditions like Waffleopolis, Wet ’n’ Wild, and Pajama Jam. Watch a 2014 Maverick Stampede video at
