Celebrating New Graduates

Students at an outdoor UNT Block Party
The annual Grad Block Party offers fun and festivities for the UNT community,

It's time to once again celebrate the newest additions to the UNT alumni family with the annual UNT Grad Block Party. Set for May 10 at the University Union South Lawn and the Library Mall, the celebration is an opportunity for the entire UNT community to come together and celebrate everything new graduates have accomplished. Filled with festivities including commemorative giveaways, a special gift for graduates, festival-style food, food trucks, live music, games, photo ops, Scrappy, and UNT merchandise and memorabilia, the evening will wrap up with a mock champagne toast, fireworks and the UNT Alma Mater at dark.

UNT graduates from the 2018-19 academic year are the guests of honor, but the entire UNT community -- including guests of graduates, faculty and staff, alumni and current students -- is invited to join the festivities. Graduates should bring their tassels and UNT ID to receive a free graduation gift and to be entered into the drawings. Drawings for winners will be held every half-hour throughout the event.
