Mean Green Football Season

The 2012 Mean Green football season is here, and there are plenty of social activities for alumni to enjoy.

Three hours before every home game, the UNT Alumni Association's pavilion, which features a 3,200-square-foot patio, will open for fans to mingle with other alumni and enjoy games on high-definition TVs.

Entry to the pavilion for home games requires membership in the UNT Alumni Association. Members are allowed to bring one guest free. One-day memberships at the pavilion can be purchased for $10.

This fall, the association is again extending the opportunity for alumni to purchase brick pavers on the adjoining exterior patio of the pavilion. With as little as $100, alumni can have their names engraved on a brick paver, leaving a lasting legacy for future UNT students and alumni to enjoy. Contributions are tax-deductible. To order a paver, contact the alumni association at 940-565-2834 or visit the UNT Alumni Association online.

"The pavilion has become the place for alumni to gather for food, fun and fellowship," says Derrick Morgan, executive director of the UNT Alumni Association.

"And it's a great reason for alumni to return to UNT to support their alma mater, whether it's enjoying the excitement of game days in the pavilion or having their names permanently etched at the facility."
