Welcome to UNT 101, a weekly series to prepare you to hit the ground running for your new life at UNT. We've interviewed Eagle Ambassadors (read: UNT aficionados) about everything from the best places to study to the best music venues in town. Let their answers be your guide to joining the Mean Green family.
Every college has its own traditions and experiences that make it unique. We asked our ambassadors to tell us something every UNT student should experience at least once, and there was a clear leader:
A tradition that dates back nearly a century, the bonfire is built and guarded by the Talons student org and lit as the culmination of a week of spirit events leading up to the Homecoming football game.
Mean Green Football
Speaking of football, cheering on the Mean Green at Apogee Stadium is another item ambassadors say every student should check off their UNT bucket list.
At UNT, We Mean Green, which means we take Earth Day to another level every spring with our own Earth Fest complete with music, plants and giveaways.
