  • Starring UNT Libraries. The UNT Libraries played a role in the three-time 2014 Oscar-winning movie Dallas Buyers Club. The movie's producers used the expertise of the Special Collections department to gather a letter, newsletters and photographs of Ron Woodroof, the real-life activist who started Dallas Buyers Club to obtain non FDA-approved drugs for his AIDS treatment. Some of the memorabilia, now a part of the Resource Center LGBT Collection of the UNT Libraries, was used as background research for the film, and UNT was included in the movie's closing credits.
  • Super Bowl Alumni. The Seattle Seahawks clinched this year's Super Bowl title, but UNT turned out winners for the game, too. Jeff Rodgers ('00), a former Mean Green linebacker, served as the special teams coordinator for the Denver Broncos, and Scott Steenson (ʼ70) was the field judge, part of the seven-man crew of officials working the game. It was the last game of Steenson's 23-year career as an NFL official.
  • TAMS Students Make a Difference. Alberto Him, 17, and Arun Yagnamurthy, 16, started their own nonprofit, EverCare Medical Foundation, which provides medical supplies to free clinics in Venezuela. Read more about how the dynamic duo is recruiting their dream team of other UNT students to raise their goal of $10,000 by May.
