UNT: The First 50 Years : Student Activities

Students were encouraged to take part in extracurricular activities, such as the Kendall-Bruce Literary Society, the Mary Arden Club, and the yearbook. In the early days of the college, however, students were limited in the number of activities they were allowed to take part in based on a point system, with a maximum of 20 points allowed. Certain activities considered more intensive, such as holding an editorship, were worth more points than other activities. A student could choose to divide their points among just a few large activities or among many smaller ones.
