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.

Sponsoring Org: Terry Scholars

Major: Criminal Justice

                              Classification: Junior

I am a 20 year old UNT Terry Scholar studying, Criminal Justice, Pre-Law. I'm from Red Oak, Texas but call Denton home. My first college experience was at the opening game of Apogee stadium. I loved it so much I came back for another game when I was a senior in high school, where I was asked to get painted up and that's when I became a UNT diehard. The University of North Texas opened a whole new world for me and I am thankful to be here everyday.

Aaron Presley

Sponsoring Org: Interfraternity Council

Major: Finance &                                             Accounting

                              Classification: Senior

Aaron can almost always be found roaming the halls of the Business Leadership Building as he approaches graduation; where bachelor's degrees in both Finance and Accounting await. While not in class, one can expect Aaron to be somewhere on campus with one of the multiple student organizations he represents. While academia has important value, campus involvement has always been the defining factor in Aaron's undergraduate career. From President of his fraternity, to sitting on the executive board of the Interfraternity Council, Student Government Association, and the Order of Omega Greek Honor Society, Aaron demonstrates servant leadership throughout all his activities. Even though his skills on the sticks are sub-par, Aaron will never pass up a chance to play a game of FIFA '15 in his spare time.

Hi, I'm Nate! I'm currently President of UPC, and I've also been actively involved in SWOOP, the Distinguished Lecture Series, and SGA here at UNT. I really, really like Whataburger, 90's pop music, petting cats, and cheering on the Mean Green every Saturday. #GMG

I’m extremely involved in my major as well; I currently serve as the Secretary for the CMHT Ambassadors and a Senator in SGA representing CMHT. I have had the honor of being inducted into both the Order of Omega and the North Texas 40 Foundation within the past year due to my involvement and dedication to academics and was a Freshman Orientation Leader in 2013.

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.
