BreakMy name is Kevin Tydlacka, and I am a graduating in Chemistry major.  Myroommate, Andrew Pham, and I have a band called The Family Business thathas garnered a respectable following.  We also happen to be members ofCollegium V. For our senior Collegium V Honors project, we decided to write, record,perform, shoot, and produce an entirely original music video about ourcollege experience. We had a wonderfully enriching time here at UT Dallas and wanted to showjust how talented the student body is -- and that there is much more to theUniversity than meets the eye.Our ultimate vision was for UT Dallas to be able to use this video to attracthigh caliber potential students/faculty, as well as shape the way theUniversity is perceived in the future.
