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.

Another parking option is the privately opertated Maverick Parking Garage. For more information on prorated schedule, visit parking and transportation services or email email@example.com.
The start of this semester brought about new additions to dining. The Connection Cafe now offers dining prices for mid-day and mid-morning times instead of just breakfast, lunch and dinner. These mid prices are cheaper out of fairness. During those times, the cafe offers less food options then during regular meal times. The P.O.D. also added more hot food options for students on the go. The idea for more meal times started in Student Congress. A resolution was passed and then presented to dining who puts these changes in. Dining hopes to make more long term changes in future semesters
