Happy Holidays

Dear UNT community,

Neal and Debbie SmatreskCreativity is a UNT tradition and a core part of our university DNA. Our students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends are dreamers and doers. In research, art, athletics and education, the Mean Green Nation is known for stepping outside the box to innovate, experiment and lead the way. I believe we've done just that with our holiday video and once you watch, you won't be able to LEGO of it!

We're wrapping up a busy year — focused on growing research, improving student success and retention, expanding student access and cultivating partnerships with the private sector — and continuing our work to become a global leader in education innovation. Our Mean Green sports teams have brought home three conference or division championships, and we have so much more to celebrate.

Most of all, we're celebrating you — a valued member of the UNT family. You continue our tradition of excellence and help us achieve our core mission of making each student's dreams come true. Because of you, we're able to support current and future Eagles who will join our alumni network of 407,000 to change the world for the better.

We wish you and yours a joyous holiday season. May the beauty of the season bring you happiness throughout the year ahead.

UNT Proud,
Neal and Debbie Smatresk
