University Day celebrates history and heritage

University Day 2009April 5, 2011

Dear UNT community,

April is a great time of year when we have many opportunities to join together to celebrate the history of UNT and the accomplishments of our students, faculty, staff and alumni.

I hope you will celebrate these milestones with us and take pride in what our campus community has accomplished.

The 50th annual University Day will be held from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 15 at Library Mall. The ceremony starts at 11:30 a.m. Started in 1961 when UNT transitioned from a college to a university, University Day lets us celebrate our past and future.

There will be live entertainment, games, prizes and food. While supplies last, those who bring a UNT ID card will receive a free picnic lunch that includes a brisket sandwich, chips, cookie and a water bottle. Water refill stations will be available to encourage people to participate in the B.Y.O.B., or Bring Your Own Bottle, initiative to minimize bottled water use. Right, University Day fun in 2009.

The annual Alumni Awards Dinner and reception will be held starting at 6 p.m. April 15 at the Gateway Center ballroom. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m. We will honor recipients of the Distinguished Alumna/Alumnus award, Distinguished Young Alumni award, Outstanding Alumna/Alumnus Service award and the Ulys Knight Spirit Award. To make reservations, call 940-565-4851 or email The cost is $50 per person. The deadline to reserve tickets is April 8.

Each event allows us to honor in a special way the people, programs and history that make UNT a great university, one that is growing bigger, stronger and better each day.
