The University of Texas at Dallas in Richardson celebrated the campus's $30 million enhancements project. The two-year project included reforesting the main entrance along University Parkway with more than 5,000 trees and native plants. The enhancements also include a columnar misting system and walkways lined with magnolias.
"UT Dallas was the ambitious dream of individuals who created a place where young researchers and future leaders would find a first-class education," said UT Dallas president David E. Daniel, in a press release. "This project is an external expression of the confidence and commitment that imbued our founders, and that we share today. The university must be excellent in all it does, and that should be reflected in the way our campus physically welcomes those who join us here."
