All alumni are invited to join the UNT Alumni Association at 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 10, when its new pavilion opens with a dedication ceremony just before its inaugural "Alumni Pavilion Party" at 3 p.m. The new 2,000-square-foot pavilion designed by award-winning architect HKS Inc. features space for hundreds of fans to enjoy three high-definition TVs, misting fans, food and beverage stations and spectacular views of UNT's Apogee Stadium from a 3,200-square-foot exterior patio.
"This new pavilion will give alumni, students and friends of UNT not only a great meeting place," says Derrick P. Morgan, the association's executive director, "but also a venue to build camaraderie and a stronger, more viable presence at the new stadium on game days and throughout the year for other special events."
While the pavilion is designated for use by association members, everyone is welcome for the grand opening to experience the new venue. Membership in the UNT Alumni Association will be required for entry to the pavilion at all subsequent home games. Each member can bring one guest for free. Alumni and friends also can renew or register for membership at the pavilion or purchase a temporary one-day membership for $10.
Located at the northeast entrance of the new stadium, the UNT Alumni Pavilion will open for each home game three hours prior to kickoff.
