Distinguished Alumni Gala
Each year, the Alumni Association hosts a gala to recognize outstanding graduates from each of UTA's colleges and schools as well as from the departments of athletics and military science. The photographs below are from the 2000 Distinguished Alumni Gala held in October at the E.H. Hereford University Center.

Portrait of a UTA Family
The Taylor family's association with UTA and its preceding institutions began in 1911. It continues today through Lloyd Clark and his granddaughter, sophomore Alida Eggen.

Birth of Nations spawned UTA family affair
With the family home on land now occupied by UTA's South 40 parking lot, it's not surprising that seven Nation siblings attended neighboring North Texas Agricultural College in the 1930s and 1940s.
