Good luck to all who are applying. The McDermott Scholars Program is a lifetime adventure!

So this isn’t strictly about McDermott Alumni, but still… a “Thursday Thinker” if you will:
Of course, here at McDermott Alumni.com, we have our favorite founder!

Looks like the love jack has been given a fresh paint job. It’s looking lovely! I’m sure we all have lots of good memories of walking past it on the way to class.
The Love Jack — a beloved campus feature that arrived in 1976 — was created by American sculptor Jim Love. The 10-foot-tall, steel jack recently was relocated to the ATEC courtyard. As we approach Founders Day (Thursday, Oct. 29) follow us on Twitter and @Official_Temoc for more fun facts about our visionary founders and UT Dallas’ history. #utdfounders
Dionna Budd ’08 and a friend were checking out the Austin City Limits festival last weekend and were snapped by the Houston Press photographer.
I’m currently living in Houston. I teach sixth grade math at a Title I school, Christa McAuliffe Middle School. We are 86% economically disadvantaged. I am team lead for sixth grade math and serve as one of our school’s intervention leaders, coordinating programs and activities for our failing students. I do Crossfit and run in my spare time, and I still have the world’s cutest dog. I am trying to hit up the music festival circuit whenever my schedule allows.
