UNT: The First 50 Years : Freshman Parade

The Freshman Parade was held in conjunction with freshman day on the North Texas campus in the 1920s. Among the day’s activities were athletic contests between the Fish (freshmen) and the upper classmen, student and faculty speeches, and a movie presentation at night. Seen here are freshmen in cars decorated and prepared to parade down Avenue A to Hickory Street, from Hickory to the Denton Square, and from the Square to return to campus by Oak Street.
