The answer is b. The Mean Green Blowout is an annual event and a UNT tradition held in late April that gives UNT students the chance to relax before finals. The evening is filled with free food, live music and fun games. The first celebration, called Let's Party, was one of the highlights of inauguration week and was held the night before UNT installed Norval F. Pohl as the 13th president in the institution's history. The party attracted 6,300 students and their guests, who danced the night away to music provided by DJ "Tiger" and Pat Green. The event was such a success that it became a yearly event under the new name of Mean Green Blowout. This year, the free event was held on Thursday, April 22 in the Coliseum.
