Dear alumni and friends,

On the heels of a record-breaking year, our start to the 2018-19 academic year is soaring to new heights -- and it just keeps on getting better! We awarded a record-breaking 9,465 degrees last year and are celebrating our largest-ever enrollment of 38,154 this fall. The Mean Green football team continues to bring good news, having started the season 4-0, which is the best record since 1966. Plus, UNT Athletics recently received its largest ever donations from the McNatt and Lovelace families.

In this issue, you'll read about the highlights from my 2018 State of the University, our upcoming UNT Alumni Association Regional Alumni Receptions, and numerous awards including Tech Titan honors, a diversity award, faculty honors to be celebrated during our Salute to Faculty Excellence Week and alumni honors to be given during Homecoming Week, Oct. 22-27.

UNT Proud,
Neal Smatresk
President
