It’s Commencement Week, which means nearly 4,500 Comets will transition from students to alumni.
As the spring semester draws to a close, we asked several seniors what they’ll remember most about their time at UT Dallas.

“My favorite time spent at the University is in the morning. Experiencing UTD at dawn is great. It’s very quiet, and it allows you to appreciate the nature and environment that surround the school.”

“A campus experience that is dear to my heart is the philosophy club — The Philosopher’s Society. This organization helped me find new — and some lifelong — friends and discuss ‘big ideas’ with my peers. I also learned so many leadership skills from being an officer. Philosophy club allowed me to supplement my classes to do more of what I loved — philosophy!”

“SUAAB does a great job of organizing concerts featuring different types of music genres. Working at Student Affairs Marketing gave me opportunities to take photos at some of these concerts and discover new artists during the process. My personal favorite was Coin at the Totally Awesome Concert of Springapalooza 2017. I got to meet the band members afterward, and I’ve seen them multiple times since!”

“Construction. It’s kind of a running joke at UTD to talk about it since it’s been going on for a while, but seeing the growth of UT Dallas has actually been really cool.”

“We are both health educators at the Student Wellness Center. We found our people there, and we all love spreading health awareness. Our favorite memory is when we both got to educate on the importance of health at a freshman seminar.”
