Family. Friends. Fun.
All of this and….chili! This weekend is Family Weekend at UNT. It is time to invite the family, close friends and enjoy the festivities: the 5k fun run/walk, football and did I mention, chili.
Family weekend is a great opportunity to get involved. Whether you are planning on spending the weekend with family and friends or going it solo, you have the opportunity to take part in lots of fun activities.
Stephanie, I know you told us that you like to run. Rachel is not a fan of running, but do you enjoy a good walk? The 5k fun run/walk is a great opportunity to run/walk the campus (without having to do it to get to class) and get entered into a tuition raffle. Yes…by simply putting your feet to use, you could win free tuition for one semester. If interested you need to register (online or at the site) and the cost is $10 advance and $15 day of.
Peppers, beef, spices….Mmmmmm….Chili! On Saturday there will be the 13th annual chili cook-off. Are any of you chefs in the making? Does your mom make the world’s best chili? Then you should enter the chili cook-off. I would enter my chili recipe but I am still tweaking it. I am also unsure what the reaction would be…I put beans in my chili (I was born and raised in Ohio…we use beans). However I am sure that Texans will like one thing about my chili…the heat…I love spice. Maybe next year for me…will this be your year?
The culminating event of Family Weekend is the football game! Attending the game is just one of the many ways you can get involved…and I guarantee that you will share something with the hundreds of people sitting around you, UNT pride.
