Click here to read more about the new alumni newsletter, The Link. As a relatively young university, UT Dallas has several new and intriguing traditions. One is our alma mater, which two sisters - an alumna and a current student - have been belting out since the song was first penned six years ago. Fall is always a busy time at UT Dallas, and the last several months were no exception. We kicked off the semester with a carnival-themed homecoming that boasted a diverse lineup of events. And at semester's close, we saw 1,729 new graduates become alumni during the fall commencement ceremonies.Fall is always a busy time at UT Dallas, and last semester was no exception.
