UNT Alumni Pavilion

September 13th, 2010 | Posted in Alumni News

Discover the power of pregame and reserve your place in history

Located at the northeast entrance of the new multipurpose football stadium, the UNT Alumni Pavilion will serve as a facility that members and friends can enjoy during special events throughout the year and be the permanent headquarters for the association’s Alumni GameDay Grille pregame parties in the fall of 2011.

Award-winning architect HKS Inc. Architects, who also designed Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, and Manhattan Construction will build the pavilion using the same brick as those used for the new stadium. It will also follow the LEED certification standards of the stadium.

With more than a 5,000 total square foot imprint, the pavilion will include 2,000 square feet of indoor space for sports fans to enjoy big-screen TVs, as well as stunning views of the stadium from a 3,200-square-foot outdoor deck.

“The UNT Alumni Pavilion project will provide a permanent presence for alumni to gather for food, fun and fellowship as well as opportunities to meet in a less formal campus atmosphere,” says Derrick Morgan, executive director of the UNT Alumni Association. “Additionally, our alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, friends and organizations have the opportunity to permanently etch their names into this highly visible venue.”

The UNT Alumni Association is offering several donor recognition opportunities in conjunction with the building of the pavilion. Donor recognition opportunities include naming rights, an interior column marker, donor wall recognition or a brick paver on the adjoining exterior patio. Morgan says supporters can get involved for as little as $100, and by pledging support to the new pavilion they will be helping to build tradition and leave a lasting legacy for future UNT generations.

Contributions are tax-deductible. For more information, contact the alumni association at 940-565-2834 or visit www.untalumni.com.

The Alumni Insurance Program

September 13th, 2010 | Posted in Partner Profiles

AlumniLTC® – a benefit for alumni

Like most people, you probably recognize the need for long term care insurance. It’s not simply “nursing home” coverage, but insurance that helps assure you of continued independence as you age – without depleting the personal assets you’ve worked hard to acquire. But choosing the right protection from the many plans available can be a daunting task.

AlumniLTC, part of our Alumni Insurance Program, is a resource during the decision-making process.  And, our alumni are entitled to a special discount on certain LTC plans available through this program.

To request a free informational Long Term Care Planning Kit, visit our plan administrator’s.
