Dallas South News Wire (UNT Dallas)
Discover UNT Dallas offers guests a chance to search for prizes in a campus scavenger hunt, observe a college lecture and enjoy a “Taste of Southern Dallas.” UNT Dallas mascot Jagger the Jaguar will also be on hand to greet visitors and pose for photos with guests. All activities are free and no registration is required.
Immediately following the event, UNT Dallas will host a concert featuring local 70’s, 80’s and 90’s dance, rap and party band The Vegas Stars. The group performs hits from Montell Jordan, KC and the Sunshine Band, Kool and the Gang and the Commodores.
Jasmin Brand, a staff member in the Office of University Advancement and the organizer of the event, said the open house will help potential students and members of the community become familiar with the university and learn more about its affordable degree programs and course offerings.
“We want Dallas to experience firsthand its one and only university, to know what it is like to have the college experience and discover the benefits of higher education at UNT Dallas,” Brand said. “By exploring the university, observing a lecture and meeting faculty and staff, we believe visitors will understand why UNT Dallas is such a special place and why it should be their first choice in higher education.”
