As we face challenging times and live this socially distant life, the UNT Alumni Association is finding new ways to have fun and keep the UNT family connected.

During UNT Alumni Live! virtual events, we go behind-the-scenes and chat with UNT faculty and alumni experts to learn and laugh without leaving the house.

Attendees have toured a winery, explored the Texas Fashion Collection, cooked with UNT President Neal Smatresk, heard from celebrated musicians and photographers, learned about craft brewing and more.

Upcoming UNT Alumni Live! events include:

• August 13: Author Deborah Smith Pegues ('72)
