Students in 2019 planning for the UNT Day at the Capitol event.
Alumni and Students Plan for a Virtual UNT Day at the Capitol
From the UNT Office of Alumni Relations
We’re gearing up for a virtual UNT Day at the Capitol 2021 — a letter-writing campaign — and alumni and student volunteers are invited to participate. The goal is to mail hundreds of letters and turn the Capitol’s legislative offices Mean Green while promoting UNT’s legislative funding priorities!
In 2019, the University of North Texas Alumni Association assembled a group of more than 120 alumni, students, and friends of the university to advocate for UNT at the Texas State Capitol. Now we’re asking our alumni to raise their Mean Green voices once again for UNT Day at the Capitol 2021!
We are planning a robust letter-writing campaign that will allow you to promote UNT's priorities and make a tremendous impact on state legislators without ever leaving home.
Here's how it will work.
- Sign up using the link to the UNT Day at the Capitol web form. Alumni and students are welcome to participate!
- Participants will receive information about training, which you can take online at your leisure.
- In early January, alumni will receive a box packed with everything needed to write effective letters to legislators (plus a little UNT gift for helping your alma mater). Students will receive information about how to write their letters, and we’ll mail them for you!
- Alums will mail their letters in early February.
- Everyone can attend a virtual party we're planning in early February, where we'll celebrate our incredible volunteers!

The help received from alumni and students in 2019 — telling their success stories and touting the power of a UNT education — made an enormous impact on behalf of the University of North Texas.
