Upcycled Halloween costumes

University of North Texas design students have an unusual class presentation – a Halloween costume exhibit featuring outfits they designed to benefit charity.

 

The University of North Texas and Collin College will participate in Education Design Lab’s Seamless Transfer Pathways Design Challenge, a 15-month design process exploring ways for students seeking a bachelor degree to transition smoothly from a community college to a four-year institution.  

Four University of North Texas faculty members will be among the educators celebrated for their dedication to excellence through research, service and education. The awards will be presented during the sixth annual Salute to Faculty Excellence Awards Dinner & Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 20 (Friday) at the University Union’s Emerald Eagle Ballroom.

Qawwali began more than 700 years ago as a musical tradition to deliver inspirational messages to devotees inside a shrine – a place where Sufi Muslims with mystical beliefs would seek the truth of divine love and knowledge. It is rarely heard outside of those sacred walls. Now the University of North Texas College of Music is bringing direct descendants of some of the original Qawwali singers to the Recital Hall in the Music Building, 415 S. Ave. C, at 8 p.m. Nov. 2 (Thursday) to perform their spiritual craft.

The rally will increase awareness and understanding of substance use and mental health issues of college and university students, and also awareness of resources on campuses where students can receive help.

Robert L. Bland, a longtime faculty member in the Department of Public Administration, will be honored at the annual conference of the International City/County Management Association Oct. 22-25.
