The Athletics department, along with SAAC, held their annual Student-Athlete Orientation on Sunday evening. In the first session, the incoming freshman and transfer students learned about policies, procedures and the great traditions of Maverick Athletics!

They also took part in a community service initiative put together by SAAC, Athletics and Pastor Paul; by putting together care kits for children battling cancer at Children’s Hospital. Included in the kits were coloring books, activities, and words of encouragement from the student-athletes themselves.

Following the community service initiative, returning student-athlete’s joined the newcomers and formed groups for a campus-wide twitter scavenger hunt! The student-athletes had to take selfies at eight different locations around campus, with the first group to complete all eight receiving #GoMavs stickers.

It was a great time, and the students really got in the spirit!
