The University of Texas at Tyler celebrated its 50th year Thursday, Nov. 11, at Tyler’s downtown square. Representatives, school alumni and guests mingled, enjoyed jazz music, picked up plenty of school swag and tried the Patriot Pale Ale, a new beer crafted by fermentation science students in partnership with ETX Brewing Co. and True Vine Brewing.
UT Tyler’s impact on East Texas is soon to ramp up through its medical school, projected to enlist its first medical students by the summer 2023.
The Tyler Loop took its lens to Tyler’s square to capture the anniversary in photos.
