ARLINGTON, Texas – UT Arlington student-athletes helped continue a tradition on Monday as they helped at the University's annual Move-In Event. 

The athletes helped new and returning Mavericks move into housing around the campus.  

"It is really cool to see how our student-athletes are serving and doing a really good job in giving their time to give back to the student population," Tim Kennedy, Student Development Specialist II said. "It is an opportunity for them to introduce themselves to the students and tell them a little bit about who they are."

Helping carry everything from boxes to computers up the stairs and into the dorms, the student-athletes got a chance to be one of the first to welcome them to campus. UTA baseball player Christian Hollie used it as an opportunity to get the students involved in Maverick events.  

"We encourage them to come to all of our games, all of our sports need the support for them to come to the games," Hollie said. "I't is fun because I'm out here with my teammates and athletes from the other sports."

The Move-in Event is a campus-wide tradition to help residence hall students move into their new homes on opening day. More than 700 faculty, staff and student volunteers are on hand throughout the day to welcome students and parents.
