Winter 2017

Each of our 2017 issues also has its own, distinctive theme.

The theme for this one, introducing our centennial celebration, is “the past”—we look back at the last 100 years in some important areas in the life of the university. The theme for our May issue will be “the present,” when we focus on where the university and its graduates are now. “The future” is the theme for our final 2017 issue, in September, when we’ll take a peek at what’s next for UT students and alumni.
