Commencement is all about the transformation from student to graduate, and it's time to celebrate that milestone the UNT way.

UNT will honor its new grads with all the fanfare they deserve at one of the university's newest traditions, the Graduation Block Party.

What is it? A celebration filled with festivities such as commemorative giveaways, a special gift for graduates, free festival-type food, food trucks, live music, games, photo ops, Scrappy, and UNT merchandise and memorabilia. Everything wraps up with fireworks and the UNT Alma Mater at dark.

Where is it? The University Union south lawn off Highland Street and the Onstead Plaza in the Library Mall.

When is it? 5-9 p.m. May 11

Who can attend? All UNT graduates from the current academic year, along with family, friends, alumni, current students, faculty and staff. Graduates should bring their tassel and UNT ID to receive a free graduation gift and be entered into the drawings.
