It is true to say that
every year, students look
forward to attractions that
abound during Homecoming
week. They range from social
scheduling like keg parties,
meetings, pep rallies and
other preambles before the big
During this time also,
expectations are very high
and some students are very
anxious to see who will be
crowned Homecoming
Queen. As far as one female
student was concerned, the
parade and the crowning of
the Homecoming Queen were
the two highlights that
fascinated her most during
that eventful weekend.
In complete contrast,
members of the football team
are only concerned about how
many touch downs they must
make and how many fumbles
they must cause to win the
game. It is therefore not
unusual to find the football
team engaged in very serious
practices and workouts well
in advance to the game.
The marching band,
cheerleaders and other groups
also put themselves in readi-
ness for this weekend.
Over the years, the
marching band has trans-

formed its outlook and in-
creased the scope of its
activities to include perform-
ing at basketball and football
games, taking part in diverse
competitions nationwide and
of course showing up in full
force at Homecoming.
The Green Brigade
also has had its own share of
the Homecoming celebrations.
With costumes that mark a
drastic departure from the old,
the quality of their music if
nothing else has been captivat-
Fraternities and
Sororities also celebrate this
event in their own ways. They
take time out to "count their
blessings" and revel about
their achievements. The Delta
Zeta Chapter, a sorority that
chartered at UNT in 1968 has
created a niche in this society.
So has Alpha Kappa Alpha,
Alpha Phi Alpha and a host of
others on campus.
It has been very
satisfying to note that Home-
coming events come and go
every year without a hitch.

Members of Sigma Alpha
Epsilon participate in the
Homecoming parade before the
big game that night.

University Players presents the
Carnival of Drama float at the
Homecoming parade.
