The Newest Exhibition at UTA’s art gallery is built around the subject of disability. The exhibit features nine artists from around the United States whose work focuses on disability today. The artwork is used to express the experiences and stereotypes that someone with a disability may face. The exhibit also commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Starting today, UTA’s central library will have telemerobots available for check out to help increase connectivity between faculty, staff and students in and away from campus.
This telemerobots can be very helpful to online or distant students. Another great thing about this innovative robots is that you can move them around yourself using a video-audio connection and a control mechanism.
The robots are rented for three consecutive hours to any student, faculty or staff member interested in using them.
The time to file your taxes is here, and college students around the nation have the opportunity to receive free money to pay for school. The only thing they have to do is to fill out and submit the free application to receive federal financial aid or better known as FAFSA. In the years 2011-2012 over 2 million students nationally did not complete the application to receive financial aid, and over 9 billion dollars were left on the table. Students sometimes can only qualify for loans when attending a community college and get discouraged to apply again.
It’s Social Work Month at UTA and the school is getting involved to promote and raise awareness. One event was a lunch party for everyone connected in the school.

This month serves as a recap over the past few years. Faculty and Staff are proud in how the school has grown in numbers and expanded in research. The School of Social Work is also participating in the Big Event in celebration.

With Maverick baseball well under way, UTA News was able to catch a glimpse of one of the Maverick standout players, Travis Sibley. The Senior shortstop is an indelible cog in the Maverick lineup, and has been for four years. His on-field and off-field leadership has proven essential for the team’s continuing success, especially with the start of conference play.
The University of Texas at Arlington stays on track as the second largest campus in the UT system just behind the University of Texas at Austin. UTA is one of the more diverse schools in the nation, and in great part is because of the changes in demographics around campus… The community is changing and this reflects the student population. New demographic statistics show UTA has reached more than 48 thousand students enrolled, whether it is in campus or online. One trend helping UTA reaching new enrollment heights is the continuous growth of the Hispanic student population.
