Mav Swap is 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today and noon to 2 p.m. Friday on the University Center mall.
Mav Swap began in 2004 to encourage students to show school spirit. Students, faculty and staff bring T-shirts from other universities and trade them in to get new UTA gear. The old shirts are then donated to Goodwill.
Ms. UTA LaQruishia Gill said the turnout last year was great, T-shirts went pretty quickly and students had a lot of fun.
Communication technology junior Jhamelle Acoff traded his T-shirts from another university at last year’s Mav Swap.
“I gave my UCM [University of Central Missouri] shirt for a new UTA shirt,” he said.
Education sophomore Brittany Miles hasn’t participated before because she didn’t have anything to trade. She said she has been at UTA since her freshman year. She said she wishes the UTA Ambassadors had other items you could donate.
“I would trade off an old UTA shirt, or bring canned goods that could be donated,” she said.
Gill said she looks forward to Mav Swap this year and hopes the turnout is better than last year.
“I want the turnout to be just as good if not better, and I hope that this time there are fewer students saying they wish they’d known about it sooner,” she said.
