Message From the AD

Dear Maverick Fan,

It's a great time to be a Maverick! The 2012 opening of the 7,000 seat College Park Center has truly created an excitement that is contagious. While the basketball and volleyball teams enjoy this new arena, all Maverick teams welcome the challenge of playing in a new conference. Our teams are competing in the WAC this year and are off to a great start. There is no question that a new era in Maverick Athletics has begun and we need you to be a part of it and help make it a success.

In order for our Athletic Program to be successful and something that we all can be proud of, we need an investment from our loyal alums and supporters. We need you to be invested not just financially but through your pride, tradition and passion for Maverick Athletics. One way that you can do this is to join the Maverick Club. The Maverick Club supports our more than 200 student-athletes who compete in 14 NCAA Division I programs. Your gift to the Maverick Club will help provide our student-athletes a great college experience and will help our teams to compete on a national level. Your gift will help fund the general athletic operations budget, which helps the University recruit and retain talented coaches and supplements the budgets of each individual team. It will also support the Athletic Director's discretionary fund, which helps finance travel to prestigious tournaments, new workout equipment and numerous other activities that contribute to a championship-level athletics program.

It's time to take a stand and reposition Maverick Athletics as a nationally-prominent program. Our annual giving program is currently not competitive within our conference. If we are going to succeed and move our sports programs forward to compete for championships each year, it all starts from within and we can't do it without your support!

Thank you for all of your continued support. We look forward to your investment in UT Arlington Athletics becoming the best it can be.
