The afterglow of Homecoming 2013 was definitely Maverick blue and orange. UT Arlington alumni, students, faculty, staff, and fans enjoyed traditions such as the chili cook-off, Paint Your Ride, and the parade of lighted golf carts. Newer events, such as the 5K Run/Walk and step show made strides. About 4,000 fans energized College Park Center for the men's basketball game, where Homecoming king and queen were crowned at halftime. All in all, it was a good time to be a Maverick.
