History

One of the earliest Homecoming celebrations to involve a football game was on Nov 11, 1929. The Eagles defeated East Texas State Teachers College 34-0 in the Armistice Day Game. Attendants were referred to as “home comers” in the yearbook. Activities included a parade of bands around the downtown square, a boarding house decoration contest, a pre-game barbeque and a dance after the game sponsored by the Talons.

During World War II, official Homecoming festivities and football games were suspended. November 1946 marked the first postwar Homecoming celebration and included the election of the first Homecoming Queen, Nikki Hendrix. Hendrix was elected by the football team, and the tradition of the team electing the queen continued until 1952, when the student body elected the Homecoming Queen.

The coldest UNT Homecoming of the century began Friday night, Nov 12, 1976, with a torchlight parade and Bonfire to keep 200 attendants from freezing. By game time that afternoon, Fouts Field was buried under six inches of snow. Some Florida State players had never seen snow, so the team built a snowman before the games as some 3,800 warmly dresses fans filled the stands. Halftime was also not to be forgotten in this premature blanket of snow. Four brave musicians marched onto the field and entertained the crowds with the university fight song, Jingle Bells and White Christmas.

 

Homecoming is a great time to show your Mean Green spirit. Come out and celebrate. Go Mean Green!

Part of a student group? Participate in one or several competitions held during Homecoming week. Competitions will be run amongst Greek Life, residence halls, and student organizations. Greek and other student organizations must be registered with Student Activities in order to participate.

Homecoming Court

Equality and Diversity

This year, the Homecoming Crew wanted to make an effort to expand the diversity of Homecoming Court. We will still have a homecoming court made up of four women and four men. The top candidate from each category will be deemed Homecoming Royalty. The intention was to allow students to feel comfortable running as their associated gender. For example, a female that associates as being male could run as a male candidate.

Role Models

The Homecoming Royalty will serve as role models for the entire campus and university. Candidates must exhibit qualities such as leadership, diversity, character, communication skills, and creativity. The two students that are chosen to be Homecoming Royalty are a positive representation of the University of North Texas.
