North Texas Exes News
North Texas Exes celebrated the start of construction on
their Alumni Center, on the ground floor of the Gateway
Center, July 17. UNT President Norval Pohl (left), Denton
Mayor Euline Brock ('74 Ph.D.) and Joe Cannon ('56),
president of the Exes, were among the dignitaries in attendance.
The Exes will host alumni receptions at the center before
and after university events — the first was Sept.
6 before the UNT-Baylor football game. The new alumni home
offers former students a place to reminisce over North
Texas memorabilia and socialize with old college professors
and classmates. Check out the Homecoming
activities at the center.
2004, UNT will mark the 50th anniversary of its desegregation
with a yearlong observance, 50 Years of Progress
and Opportunity, 1954-2004. Plans include a musical
gala, alumni and Homecoming gatherings, a halftime celebration
at a football game, speakers, exhibitions and an issue
