But Wait..

What is an "Awakening?"
It is a weekend retreat put on by college students for college students that takes place at campuses all across the country. An Awakening retreat is designed to help young adult students deepen their faith and relationship with God through prayer, reflection, and fun activities with their peers. We strive to spark an “awakening” to Christ’s presence and infinite Love in our retreaters lives, Church, and throughout the world. Awakenings also serve to encourage students in finding a home within the Catholic community in their area, and taking a more active role within that community.

Who can go?  Maverick Awakening is open to all college students and young adults 18 years old and up. Although it is a Catholic retreat, you do not have to be Catholic or a UTA or TCC student to attend this retreat. We also welcome students from any university or college and young adults who live in the DFW metroplex.

When is it?  Maverick Awakening traditionally takes place in the fall semester every year.

Where will it be? Just arrive at the UCC (1010 Benge Dr.) at the specified time and date, and we'll take care of you from there.

Do I have to pay? The retreater fee is $40 for early registration ($50 for late registration), which includes a t-shirt, 6 meals, and boarding, and, oh yeah, and the experience of a lifetime!

What if I am a poor college student who lives off ramen noodles?  If the price alone is the only reason you can't make it, talk to Jeff Hedglen, the campus minister (email here). Partial scholarships might be available!

Okay! I'm sold. Now what?
