2013 Theme: Carnicus 101

In the early part of the previous century, UT students celebrated the end of the year’s classes with an event called the June Jubilee. It evolved into a carnival with the Glee Club performing, vaudeville shows by the students, and side shows. In 1912 a circus was added with students dressing as elephants, cows and other animals. By 1925 the carnival had become a mid-winter carnival held indoors and the circus an outdoor event held in the spring. In 1929, the All Campus Events Committee combined the two activities and George Abernathy, a member of the All Students’ Club, coined the word “Carnicus.” As Carnicus evolved over the years, emphasis was placed on the skit competitions.
