Introducing the Maverick Wranglers


Campus is buzzing about the new College Park Center that will be opening next semester.  Student organization leaders, don't miss your chance to be a part of the next big thing at UT Arlington!  Join the Maverick Wranglers as they head 'em up and move 'em in to the new facility.


The Wranglers are some of the most spirited blue and orange overall wearin', Maverick pride burstin', trail blazin' students this side of town and we want YOU to join them! The select student spirit group will be seated in the student spirit section within the College Park Center and loudly and proudly cheer for the men's and women's basketball teams, perform spirit related routines coordinated with the band and cheer/dance teams and much more. This will all be done at the first men's basketball game in the College Park Center on 2/1 and also at the Homecoming game on 2/11 with a possibility of continuing on throughout the season.  Incentives include free reserved priority game seating, apparel and spirit items, food vouchers, and more!
