UNTRA Events

UNTRA has traditionally sponsored several events during the Spring and Fall semesters of each academic year. The UNTRA Programs Committee plans a wide variety of events each year based on member interest. Our standard events include Academic Updates from various departments on campus, our annual spring & winter holiday potluck gatherings, Homecoming tailgate, and the President's Retiree Brunch. We are grateful to the UNT Division of Advancement, the Office of the President, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UNT, and UNT Colleges/Departments for their help in co-sponsoring events.

UNTRA members receive email invitations to upcoming events throughout the Spring and Fall semesters of each academic year.

PUSH Program Events

On a regular basis, UNTRA participates in events with OLLI at UNT and students in UNT's PUSH Program. PUSH (Persevere Until Success Happens) provides a structured, campus-wide network of support to assist foster care alumni in achieving educational success by focusing on the academic, financial, career, and social well-being of each student, enabling them to arrive and thrive on campus. At these dinners, retirees have the opportunity to meet with PUSH students, participate in fun activities, and offer their support and encouragement.

UNT Food Pantry Donation Drives

At the President's Annual Retiree Brunch in September as well as at the end of the fall and spring semesters, UNTRA collects canned food donations from its members for the UNT Food Pantry. Any current UNT student in need can visit the Food Pantry in Crumley Hall.

President's Retiree Brunch & Campus Expo

At the beginning of the fall semester, UNTRA works in partnership with the Office of the President to invite all UNT retirees to a brunch on campus. At this event, the President addresses retirees and provides an update of the exciting new developments at the university. Representatives from around campus also participate in an expo showcasing opportunities for retirees to stay engaged with life on campus.

Academic Updates

Once a semester, UNTRA receives an update from a department at UNT to learn about exciting research, scholarship, and the practical applications of work being done by UNT faculty and students.

UNTRA Potluck Dinners

UNTRA members gather for potluck dinners both in December, before Winter Break, and in May, before Summer Break.

Homecoming in the Alumni Pavillion

UNTRA partners with the UNT Alumni Association for this annual tradition of food, fun, and football!

College of Music Concerts

Each semester, the College of Music generously makes complimentary tickets available to members of UNTRA for selected concerts. Members are notified by email when each semester's list of concerts is available.

Mean Green Sports

All UNT retirees are eligible to claim 2 complimentary tickets to each UNT home game while tickets for that game remain available (contact the Ticket Office at 940-565-2527 or ticketoffice@unt.edu). In addition to that great benefit, UNTRA members also receive some exclusive offers from Mean Green Sports throughout the year. We are very grateful for their support of our organization!
