Senior Reception and Ring Presentation

The UT Dallas Alumni Association sponsored the 2007 Ring Presentation Ceremony on April 13, 2007 in the School of Management's Davidson Auditorium. Despite a terrible storm, which caused a temporary blackout in the middle of the ceremony, Dr. Daniel presented class rings to UT Dallas juniors, seniors, and graduate students while their family and friends watched. The class rings are presented annually during this ceremony, and alumni and eligible current students are encouraged to attend to have their rings presented to them by Dr. Daniel.

This year, the Association was also proud to award complimentary rings to seniors Fern Yoon, Lucas Shelton, Pamela Palagonia, and Rebecca Krznarich, and Doctoral Candidate Raksha Anand. The Alumni Association’s Ring Award honors outstanding juniors, seniors, and graduate students whose work on and off campus has improved UT Dallas and its surrounding communities.

Special thanks are extended to Alumni Council member Summer Brown Farmer for chairing the Ring Award Committee and participating in the ceremony, the Ring Award committee for reviewing all of the nominations and selecting the 2007 Ring Award winners, and Joseph Lanners, Alumni Association Chairman, for delivering the closing comments at the event.

Visit the 2007 Ring Ceremony website to learn more about the 2007 Ring Award winners.

Thirsty Thursday at Metro Grill
On April 19, a diverse group of alumni attended the UT Dallas Thirsty Thursday happy hour at Metro Grill. We had graduates ranging from the class of '81 to the class of '04 who were both undergraduate and graduate level alumni. Metro Grill provided a great setting for networking, story telling and catching up for all who attended. Don't miss the next Thirsty Thursday on May 17 at BlackFinn Restaurant & Saloon in Addison from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. We hope to see you there!

Ericsson Corporate Alumni Event

On April 26, UT Dallas hosted the second in a series of Corporate Days at the Ericsson headquarters located in Plano. We had great attendance by alumni who had the opportunity to hear President Daniel provide an update on UT Dallas and participate in a question and answer session immediately following. Thank you to all the UT Dallas alumni who attended the event!
