[The façade of the North Side Coliseum in Fort Worth]

Description: Photograph of the facade of the North Side Coliseum, now known as the Cowtown Coliseum, located at 121 E Exchange Avenue in Fort Worth, Texas. The photographer takes the photo from behind a fence, so a leafless tree takes up the majority of the photo. The Coliseum itself has an entryway that is separated from the outside by a wall of arches. It is a tall building; around 4 stories. The whole roof is pitched into one large triangle, and a large, curved section of windows takes up the inside of this triangle. Each different section of roof has Spanish tile on it, and there are six visible sections.

The music heard during the procession was composed by Dr. Dennis Fisher, a College of Music professor. Music professor Lynn Eustace performs the national anthem, Eagle Ambassador Drew Wilborn offers the invocation and Chancellor Alfred F. Hurley serves as master of ceremonies, introducing the speakers. A performance of the finale of Beethoven's 9th Symphony by the UNT Symphony Orchestra and UNT Grand Chorus is featured halfway through the ceremony. After the musical performance, the investiture ceremony, where Pohl receives the UNT medallion, is conducted. Provost Dr. David Kesterson presents Dr. Pohl with the ceremonial mace and explains the symbolic significance of the UNT presidential mace. Then, Dr. Pohl speaks to express his gratitude and share his vision. After Dr. Pohl speaks, Dr. Hurley asks those in attendance to rise and sing UNT's alma mater, "Glory to the Green," led by UNT's Grand Chorus. A recessional concludes the ceremony.
