MISSED ALL THE FUN, BUT STILL WANT TO MAKE AN IMPACT?
THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF A COSMIC IMPACT ONLY COMETS COULD CREATE!

Thank you to everyone who joined in to celebrate UT Dallas' 50th anniversary by being a part of this year's 1,969 minute Comets Giving Day. While the giving day might be over, the impact felt across campus, is just beginning thanks to all of our loyal, UT Dallas supporters.

 

Please be patient as we finalize gift totals and announce challenge winners in the coming days. #COMETogetherUTD
