Walk in the Park for UTA softball

Bark in the park weekend was full of excitement for UTA softball. Clouds covered Allen Saxe Field and so did Georgia State as they were able to get the victory over the lady Mavs in the first game of the series. The second game of the double header was delayed due to rain and it seemed to help the Mavs as they were able to come up with a big win. Game 3 was Randi time as she was able to come up big and deliver a no hitter, 6th in UTA history.

For many students, it can hard to keep up and apply for scholarships because of the amount of time it takes just to fill out an application. In recent years, UTA has seen a decline in applicants, but no the school believes they have a solution. UTA has came up with Mavs Scholarshop, a one stop shop that allows students to apply for multiple scholarships at a time. This online feature will help save students time and money, and the university hopes it can have more applicants for available scholarships.
