2017 TAMS Alumni Reception

The second annual TAMS Alumni Reception went down at the UNT Student Union on June 23, 2017. TAMSters from many classes – but particularly the 5-, 10-, 20- and 25-year reunion classes – dressed up and socialized while reminiscing about classes, shenanigans and forged friendships.

Here are some photos from the reception – as well as from a few reunion activities, including breakfast at Bruce (which doesn’t look the same), a tour of McConnell (which mostly does), a picnic at Eureka, and at least two visits to the now-hopping Denton square scene.

It was TAMStastic! ūüėÄ
