No Hazing Week

Every September UT Arlington participates in No Hazing week, a week dedicated to raising awareness and education against hazing. This year the theme was “These Hands Don’t Haze”. Students were able to help the cause by signing a banner that was located outside of the University Center all week. Wednesday evening there was a special showing of the 2008 documentary Haze, starring Robin Wright Penn the film focuses on the death of a college freshman due to hazing activity. New Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Timothy Quinnan had a few words for the students before the film. For more information about how you can stop hazing visit uta.edu/greek.

Blaze mascot performers remain a mystery

Blaze replaced Sam Maverick as UTA’s mascot seven years ago. The mascots are considered one of UTA’s spirit groups, along with the cheerleaders and the Wranglers. In order to become Blaze, students must go through a tryout process to ensure they can walk and act in accordance with his persona. As compensation for working events on campus and in the community, Blaze performers receive a scholarship at the end of the semester.
