Daylight hours are receding as the calendar creeps closer to the first day of the fall semester. You’re scrambling around on Amazon and Chegg to find the best deals on textbooks and Mean Green fanatics are counting down the days until the first football game of the season.

While you prepare for another, or your first, semester at UNT, we want to take you back, back to a time when Denton was transforming from a one-horse town to the music vomiting, hipster-ridden city it is today.

Last summer, we chronicled the history of Denton, but this issue discusses the evolution and the people who witnessed it. For a city bursting at the seams with pride, it’s important to know the path it endured throughout the years.

For someone who’s been here for almost seven years, it’s incredible to see how much the city and university have grown in such a short time. Unfortunately, my path continues past Denton city limits, and I must part ways with its rich culture and large times.

The torch is now in the hands of those eager to begin their journey between Bonnie Brae and Welch Streets. Keep this city and UNT growing toward a bigger blip on the radar and go Mean Green!
