Dear UTA alumni,

We’re thrilled this week to share some tremendous news: UTA has earned national recognition for its outstanding academic and support programs serving thousands of military veterans and their families! The top ranking kicked off Homecoming Week 2015 and gives us even more reason to celebrate as basketball season opens this Friday and Saturday. Hope to see you on campus at the big games!

Jimmy Campbell, a College of Business alumnus and banking executive, wanted to help two big influences in his life — The University of Texas at Arlington and Cleburne High School — so he and his wife Cathy have committed $250,000 to establish a new endowed scholarship fund that will enable Cleburne High graduates to pursue a business degree from UTA.
