Faculty and Staff enjoy a night of fun and spirit at first football game

More than 700 faculty and staff picked up free tickets to watch the Mean Green's win over Lamar University at Faculty and Staff Appreciation Night on Sept. 2 at Apogee Stadium. The event was sponsored by North Texas Athletics and the UNT Staff Senate. In addition to game day pizza, a spirit contest and employee attendance competition, Carter BloodCare was on-hand to facilitate a blood drive that collected more than 83 units of blood for Hurricane Harvey relief.

Additionally, the winners of the employee competition, a drawing for employees who registered at the game, will be celebrated at the President’s Sack Lunch.
