The UNT community gave big this semester to help those in need, globally and locally. The Student Government Association coordinated a campuswide initiative, the UNT Big Give, aimed at raising funds toward a $40,000 goal for Haiti relief. Several concerts were sponsored by the College of Music featuring the Symphony Orchestra and A Cappella Choir. Funds raised at campus events including the College of Music performances and men’s home basketball games will be divided among the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and Doctors Without Borders.
The second campuswide CANstruction food collection and contest benefited the Denton Community Food Center. The contest, which collected 7,050 pounds of non-perishable food, included faculty, staff and student groups who were judged on their sculptures built from canned food donations.
