2016 Clark Weekend: Come Fly Away With Us

Clark Weekend is a fun-filled weekend held each fall to recognize and celebrate our Clark and Junior Clark Society members. The theme changes annually, and members attending this year’s Friday night event enjoyed "Come Fly Away with Us," an evening abroad featuring multicultural drinks, an internationally inspired menu and music by Trey and the Tritones. The evening included remarks from Clark Society Board Chair DD Burke Alexander ’82, who introduced the 2016-2017 Clark Society Scholars. The student speaker, Lea Sandoval ’18 shared key moments of her study abroad experience to Seoul, South Korea. Thanks to everyone who traveled abroad with us!

2017 Endowed Chairs and Professorships Dinner

The Endowed Chairs and Professorships Dinner is held in the spring semester of each academic year to recognize and honor donors who establish TCU’s endowed faculty positions as well as the holders of those positions. These positions are among the most prestigious and impactful types of investments a donor can make, and are one of the most revered traditions of higher education. This year's dinner took place on February 25 at the Dee J. Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center and honored newly-established positions and their donors, as well as the inaugural and new holders of previously established positions.
