Welcome Back the Mean Green at UNT Fan Fest

August 18th, 2017 | Posted in Alumni News
Do you have the meanest, greenest family in North Texas? Show off your spirit at Fan Fest, the UNT Alumni Association’s biggest celebration of the summer!

The Denton County Alumni Chapter is kicking off the UNT athletics season in style at Apogee Stadium. Get in the spirit with a Green Brigade marching band performance, get autographs from UNT players, and follow along in the stands as the football team warms up the crowd with drills.

We’ve packed in too much fun for one evening, so stick around after sunset for a movie night on the field. Spread out your blanket and unwind as “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” plays on the world-class Jumbotron.

Summer Family Events

July 18th, 2017 | Posted in Alumni News

A giraffe’s tongue is black. An airplane’s “black box” is not.

Curious minds young and old can explore these facts and more at the UNT Alumni Association’s summer family events.

On July 29, we’ll have our eyes to the skies at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas. Guests will enjoy a catered breakfast on the mezzanine level with an eagles-eye view of suspended aircraft displays. Kids can enjoy the indoor play space and flight themed crafts while parents explore the museum’s impressive 35,000-piece collection of aviation and space flight history.

On August 12, our Tarrant County Chapter invites you to a fun-filled day at the Fort Wort Zoo. Start off with a hearty breakfast and an up-close Animal Encounter, then discover the wild with your family. 

Whether your interest takes you down onto the Savanah or high in the skies, you’ll create new family memories at the UNT Alumni Association’s summer events. Bring your UNT friends to celebrate the old memories, too!
