At the 2015 State of the University, the university celebrated the day UNT was established in 1890 and its 125 years of excellence and impact. President Smatresk outlined a vision for UNT to become a nationally prominent institution and the steps we must take to achieve that goal. The event also formally kicked off UNT's 125th anniversary celebrations!
UNT alumni have turned their passion for UNT into $3.2 million in gifts to help UNT advance. Local businessman and alumnus, Jim McNatt ('66), and his wife, Linda, gave UNT more than $2.6 million to support scholarships, research and athletics. The gifts, some of which are eligible for matching funds from the state, could have a total impact of more than $3.4 million. At the same time, five alumni leaders including McNatt committed to funding UNT's National Merit Scholars for four years – gifts totaling $600,000.
