Oozeball is a muddy volleyball competition that has been tradition at my college for a while now. Greek life isn't as big at my school as other schools but they take up a lot of the majority of people on campus. The MAC Is where people go to exercise we get in free and it's just something to do with time. I go to a commuter college so people normall leave

The first event would be Oozeball. Oozeball is a traditional volleyball game; however, instead of sand the playing field is filled with mud! The second event would be the Got Culture Jam. This event has an open floor dance with a DJ, and it allows students to connect to the many cultures here at UTA. The third event, and my favorite, would be the Bed Races. The Bed Races allow teams of 5 to compete against the clock to win prizes. One of the team members must be on a bed, holding on for dear life, as the other members must push this "hotrod" bed on wheels to the end of the course. These are only a few of the many different events that are hosted here at the University of Texas at Arlington.

For the first week back, the University throws a "Maverick Stampede." There are different things every day ranging from a pajama themed dance party, a late night shopping run to Target, and a Waffleopolis, where students get free waffles along with music and entertainment. Later in the year, they have bed races and an all mud volleyball tournament.

  1. They compete in the Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) contest, where students design and build a formula-style race car, and race against other schools from all over the globe.

  3. They see their designs come to life and problems solved at the UTA FabLab, a space where students have access to 3D Printers, CNC machinery, and other cutting edge technology.

UTA offers a lot of unique forms of entertainment. We have Oozeball, which is basically dodgeball on a muddy field. We have Bed Races, where people build bed carts to race in. And, of course, like every university, we have sport teams, so many people enjoy going to their games.

Honestly the school more of a commuter feeling to it. But for fun, everyone goes to the MAC(Maverick Activity Center) you can do anything there: workout, play basketball, indoor soccer, sand volleyball, rock climbing. Lots of things to do, definitely the number one place for students. There are a lot of events held by our EXCEL student organization. Anything they have planned is always fun and a great way to meet new ppl. The third thing is going to the games, of all sports. We may not be good or very popular, but we do have lots of fun at the games.

  1. Beginning of the semester kick-off activities (bed races, balloon fights, various other social activities that are primarily held on campus grounds).

  2. Visit local restaurants--such as Nizza Pizza--with friends!

  3. Weekend activities: go downtown (either Fort Worth or Dallas, since UT-Arlington is a midpoint between both!) with friends to enjoy local bars, holiday festivities, arts and crafts festivals, etc.

One of the top things to do at UTA is join a club. UTA is more of a commuter school so it's important to be involved, especially if you live on campus. The next thing to do is go to the events that organizations have. Many of the events are free with FOOD! If you need a good time one day and you're on a budget, that's the thing for you. Last thing, there are a couple parties here and there so enjoy some night life.

During the summer, every Thursday night, students organize an event known as "Night Under the Stars" where a movie is projected onto the outside wall of the student center and current students and the surrounding community come to enjoy different movies with friends and family.

During the year, the sports scene is the next biggest form of entertainment for students. When basketball season comes around, majority of the student body will be at the games cheering the Mavericks and chanting the school fight song.

Finally, the most notable time for exciting events is the first week back, also named Stampede Week. New and returning students are welcomed back onto campus with live music, food, and games.

Every Friday our EXCEL organizations set up movie nights which is usually takes place outdoors, depending on the weather. Another thing that UTA's students do for fun is going to support our sport teams at least twice a week with great school spirits, our fans will have UTA gear on to body paint. Last but not least, our Fraternities/Sororities have an event every week for students to participate in and view. Some examples include cook-outs, donations and talent shows.

Well, when I'm on campus I normally just go there for lectures and to study, but one fun that at UTA that I really enjoy is actually when different organizations have fun events outside of the University Center. Another fun thing at UTA is the little "strip" by the bookstore. There are restaurants and little stores people can go to. Also, another fun thing UTA offers is the screening of movies on campus. That is another fun activity to participate in.

UTA students are passionate about sports. They love to cheer on the Mavericks, with tailgating extending hours before and after the events. Faces are creatively painted depicting the school colors, blue and orange, and people dress up like Maverick (the UTA mascot). In addition to Maverick games, UTA offers intramural sports opportunities for whatever your interest is. This active culture helps everyone get to know one another, while supporting an active and healthy culture among the leaders of tomorrow. Inactivity and isolation are two big deficits in today's society and this customizable athletic culture is key in preventing these problems. The MavStrong Competition is something no student would want to miss. These exciting UTA games include the tire flip, log press, sandbag lunge, and more. There is a surge of excitement in the air as the competition day draws close, and it is exciting for the competitors and the spectators! Another activity the students truly enjoy at UTA is volunteer work. There are over 100 different student organizations which are dedicated to giving back to the community which has been enjoyable and meaningful for everyone involved. This has brought many of the students closer together as well as unified the communities served. Money cannot purchase a sense of fulfillment like that of service.

Even though we are a smaller campus, us Mavericks still like to show our pride and have a fun time. Greek life is an important aspect at my university. going to events and supporting other organizations is one way we like to have fun. We may not have a football team, but attending other sporting events like basketball, track and volleyball is another way we show school spirit and have fun while doing it. The last thing we do to have fun is attending all of the programs and theatre plays the liberal arts department puts on. Showing support to other organizations on campus is what makes UTA so great!
