University Day 2013

First held May 10, 1961, when North Texas State College became North Texas State University, this spring event includes free food, music, activities, and a celebration of UNT’s founding.

The official University Day ceremony will start at 11:30am, and traditionally includes a welcome by the UNT President; an historical proclamation by the Mayor of Denton, pronouncing the college a university; and music by the pep band.

This year’s ceremony will also include a dedication of the new campus historical signage and an unveiling of the newly refurbished Mean Green Machine, the Talons’ 1929 Ford Model A sedan.

Following the ceremony, the group KAOS will perform a unique show of popular music accompanied by a drummer.

Starting at 11:30am, almost 70 departments and student organizations will be on hand to distribute information about their respective areas.

During the event, Dining Services will provide a BBQ lunch (including a vegan option), and UNT community members should bring their UNT ID for access to the free food.

Show your Mean Green Pride on University Day and you could win $150! It’s easy! For details, see https://meangreenpride.unt.edu/Participate%20on%20Campus.

University Day is sponsored by the Office of the President, Dining Services, Auxiliary Services, University Union, Student Activities, University Program Council, and Student Government Association.
