This weekend marks the culmination of our students’ hard work, with commencement tonight at Inspiring Body of Christ Church and our law school’s first-ever hooding ceremony on Saturday at the Majestic Theater. Congratulations to all of our graduates for reaching the summit in your areas of study – you have all played a role in helping us make the visions of UNT Dallas and the UNT Dallas College of Law a reality. I am personally excited for all of our graduates as the enter a Dallas job market that was named the No. 1 big-city employment market in the nation this week by Forbes.

As a university, we have plenty of hard work and exciting milestones ahead – including the opening of our very first residence hall this coming August –  but this weekend is a time to celebrate. All of us in the UNT Dallas administration, as well as our faculty and staff, are genuinely proud to know that 430 UNTD graduates will carry the wisdom and experiences they have gained on our campuses with them for the rest of their lives. As alumni, our graduates are now part of a very unique group of learners that will help continue this region’s rise as a world class center of industry and innovation.

Thank you to everyone in the UNT Dallas family for a wonderful academic year.
