Giving Back

One of the best ways that Alumni can give back to UT Dallas is by sharing their university experiences with incoming students and recruiting new students to the University.

Deran Abernathy (BA '04) is a great example of an alumnus who gives back by quite literally recruiting students to UT Dallas. Deran works for the University as an Enrollment Services Advisor, frequently talking potential students through the recruitment and enrollment processes and sharing his student experiences with them.

He says of his unique opportunity to recruit the next generation of Comets that, "giving back to UTD is a natural and gratifying action! Why wouldn't I support the institution which provided me a holistic education, lasting friendships and opportunities to create the future? Helping recruit the newest undergraduates is a truly rewarding experience that allows me to ensure UTD will enroll the brightest students. As alumni, the more we provide, the more UTD can achieve!"
