UNT Insider

Members of the Class of 2018 were the guests of honor at the Graduation Block Party, which quickly became my favorite event of the year. We had more than 8,000 graduates, students, faculty, staff, alumni and families join us for an evening of games, dancing, music, giveaways, food and fireworks.

Dear alumni and friends,

The best part of my job is interacting with our 38,000 students and watching how UNT transforms their lives and prepares them for successful careers in the evolving workforce. During our nine spring commencement ceremonies, UNT awarded more than 4,600 degrees, and we are on track to award more degrees in the 2017-18 academic year than ever before!

In this issue, you'll read about the launch of UNT's NetDragon Digital Research Centre, the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism's new dean, our designation as a Purple Heart University, numerous student awards, new turf at Apogee Stadium, and our newest residence hall, which will be named for NFL great Joe Greene.

Thanks for your continued support of the Mean Green!

UNT Proud,
Neal Smatresk
President
