Scrappy rocks! Mascot heroics will be Homecoming theme

Scrappy welcomed by fans(Editor's note: Event inclusion deadline has been extended to July 20. See below, send your information.)

Homecoming 2011 will be Oct. 18-22 and will include popular events such as the annual bonfire and pep rally, parade, golf tournament and plenty of tailgating before the football game versus the University of Louisiana – Monroe in the new Mean Green Stadium.

The Golden Eagles, who graduated 50 years ago in 1961, will enjoy a reunion luncheon, and the Floyd Graham Society, former students who danced to music of the Big Band era and beyond, also enjoy a luncheon and scholarship presentation on Homecoming weekend.

The Athletic department celebrates the achievements of alumni with its annual Hall of Fame breakfast and induction. Spirit groups such as Green Jackets, Talons and other student organizations schedule special events on one of the campus’s busiest weekends.

Be sure your department or organization’s Homecoming activity is included on the website, posters and other promotional materials shared with alumni, student parents and families and Metroplex communities.

  • Send event listings – be sure to include time, date and location – along with costs, registration deadlines and contact information to the Homecoming event planners.
  • Email information to Karen Selby, Karen.selby@unt.edu by July 1.

This year’s Homecoming theme - The Incredible Scrappy - celebrates our own campus superhero. The eagle mascot was selected by students in 1922. A live eagle came to campus for a football game in 1950, and a series of real and costumed birds were the official mascots for 45 years.

Scrappy, the spirited, peppy dude we know today, debuted in 1995. Above, the big bird is welcomed to a football game by fans of all ages.
