Comet Call

Alumni and friends can connect with current students each year through the Comet Call program. Throughout the year, Comet Callers communicate with alumni and friends to update records, share University news and request support. When you receive a call, please take the opportunity to share your news and to learn how things have changed since your last visit to campus. Missed your call this year? Please update your record.

Legacy Lane

Legacy Lane allows graduates to leave a lasting mark on campus. Made of beautiful shades of red brick, the pathway of personalized pavestones stretches along the creek behind the Eugene McDermott Library. Order a brick for yourself, and it will be installed in the section dedicated to alumni from your class year. Bricks also make great gifts and provide an impact on the UT Dallas landscape.

Since 2008, each graduating class has made a difference to its alma mater through the Class Challenge. Classes have established scholarships and beautified campus. Most importantly, the Class Challenge shows future generations of Comets that graduates are helping to create a brighter tomorrow.
