Alumni Gather for 20th Homecoming During Several Events

UT Dallas’ 20th annual Homecoming featured an exclusive alumni breakfast with President David E. Daniel and the deans. More than 100 alumni visited with friends, networked with colleagues and learned more about the University’s progress toward becoming a Tier One research institution.

Following breakfast, free Comet Quick Courses were offered by UT Dallas faculty on topics ranging from identity theft to marriage trends.

Later in the day, alumni and their families packed the Alamo Drafthouse for a screening of the animated feature film Free Birds, by Reel FX and Relativity Media. UT Dallas alumni who work at Reel FX also talked to the group about their contributions to the film.
