President V. Lane Rawlins and his wife, Mary Jo, participate in Homecoming 2010 festivities.
For me, Homecoming is about coming together as a community and having our extended family come home. I hope to see you out in force at Homecoming 2011 festivities, showing off your Mean Green pride and sharing your Homecoming memories as they happen.
This is going to be a great Homecoming. We've certainly got a lot to celebrate as we will play the first Homecoming game in UNT's new Apogee Stadium and celebrate our beloved traditions.
The Homecoming weekend highlights include:
- Non-Fire Bonfire, Yell Contest and Pep Rally at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Eagle Point
- Homecoming parade at 1 p.m. Saturday
- Tailgating at Apogee Stadium before the game Saturday
We've moved up the start time for the game to 4 p.m. so sports fans can also see the Texas Rangers play in the World Series. You can still buy season and single game tickets.
Of course, Homecoming is about more than football. It's about showing off our school spirit, reveling in our traditions and celebrating what a great university UNT is. And this is a really wonderful university because we have the best students, the best faculty and staff, and the best alumni.
We look forward to seeing you back on campus to show your Mean Green pride at this year's Homecoming.
Go Mean Green and Happy Homecoming!
V. Lane Rawlins
