Dear Alum,

At the end of August, we welcomed students back to campus, marking a great start to the 2011-12 academic year. In the included video, our students share some of their excitement about things happening on campus and I thought you might enjoy seeing a little bit of our spirit.

We anticipate many more great things are on the horizon this year after experiencing an historic summer during which we attracted more than $51 million in landmark gifts and sponsorships, including a $22 million gift that is the largest ever in UNT history and a 20-year, $20 million naming sponsorship agreement for Apogee Stadium, UNT's new home for football and entertainment events. It's among the largest naming-rights agreement for a college football stadium to date.

These milestones are propelling us forward and will fuel our continued excellence. The gifts will foster student learning and faculty scholarship, while furthering UNT's reputation for cutting-edge research and world-class arts and music.

You can see progress at every turn from new buildings such as the Business Leadership Building to this year's freshman class, which is expected to be one of our largest and brightest.

This fall, I invite you to come back to campus to share some key events with us:

It's a great time to be part of the UNT family. We promise to continue to give our students a superior education so that their time here and future is defined by excellence. It's what they deserve and it's how we will achieve our goal of growing as a major public research university offering the best undergraduate education in Texas.
