The UNT Alumni Association is expanding its regional chapter programming in response to the number of UNT graduates who pursue careers across the state. As a way to celebrate the broadening of UNT's reach and reputation, the association will offer more events in areas such as South Texas to provide increased opportunities for alumni to celebrate their college experiences.
"Alumni chapter events are an ongoing source of enrichment and a great way to sustain lifelong relationships with fellow alumni and with the university," says Rob McInturf, executive director of the UNT Alumni Association.
For alumni who reside in the DFW area, the Alumni Association has scheduled its spring mixers. Collin County alumni will meet April 5 at Sixty Vines in Plano; Tarrant County alumni will meet April 12 at HG Supply Co. in Fort Worth; and Denton County alumni will meet April 26 at Marty B's in Bartonville.
All events include an appetizer buffet, free parking, prizes and one drink ticket. Prices are $5 for members and $10 for non-members. More information on regional chapter events can be found at the UNT Alumni Association website.
In addition, the Alumni Association is currently accepting nominations for the 2018 Distinguished Alumni Awards ceremony. Completed nomination packets are due April 15. Forms are available online.
