The University of North Texas is a beautiful and diverse campus. The professors are very welcoming and helpful. They care a lot about your success. I thoroughly enjoy most of my classes, as they allow me to learn valuable knowledge for my career field and make me excited to advance professionally.
UNT is a great place to find a variety of activities, interesting classes, and great food. There are many diverse students, so everyone is able to find friends who have similar interests as themselves. UNT always has fun events to attend which makes campus life interesting.
*My major is Applied Arts and Sciences with concentrations in English and World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. Applied Arts and Sciences was not an option under the "Your Major" tab, so I selected one of my concentrations which is English.*
I love going to unt at first I was scared because I didn’t know anybody, but after a while I made lots of friends. I also really enjoy the classes and constantly feel educationally challenged. The facilities are also great and everything you need to succeed is already on campus.
My opinion on North Texas is nothing short. I love North Texas, I feel like the environment since I’ve come here has been so positive and extremely helpful. When I started off as a freshman I knew absolutely nothing when it came to college life. When I came for orientation, all the helpers and group leaders were so warm and kind! Since it was January they even offered us hot chocolate and had signs everywhere to help us navigate our way through the campus! Coming as a freshman the campus was super intimidating and very scary but the advisors told us it was nothing to be worried about and that soon enough we would be running this place. When my first day came I was so excited to try out the dining halls! UNT has vegan, vegetarian, and regular options for you to choose from. My favorite was Eagle Landing. Eagle Landing has such a wide variety of food stemming from all different cultures and backgrounds. The dorm life is good too, your RA’s make it a habit to check in with you periodically on if you need help with anything or if there is anything bothering you that you may want to talk about.They also have all types of transportation for you, instead of ordering an Uber late at night, UNT has its own E-ride that you can call anytime late at night. Thankfully UNT has helped guide my success by providing me with all the resources I need to succeed. I’ve created so many memories and friends here and I’m so grateful to be a part of this family.

Get excited! You are about to embark on a new part of life that will guide you through different experiences that will help you figure out how you want to live your life and who you want to be as a person. Take a chance and dont be scared to get involved in anything and everything, everyone is just like you and is coming in not knowing anything. No one is better than you and you are better than no one, but you can be an amazing person. I would say pace yourself, you have plenty of time to sort out your college time, but keep it in mind it can fly by really fast, so dont let something go by if you even think you might want to get involved or try it. Dont ever be scared to go ask anyone around campus a question, knowing all about campus and the people on it makes it a better experience. Meet as many people as possible even if you dont plan on keeping in touch, because memories and the experiences you go through on campus will shape your life. Mistakes are part of college, be smart and have fun!
It is well known and they have a great deal to offer. It is a safe area too. The libraries are open late and on the weekends.
I think the thing that I dislike most about the University of North Texas is the fact that it is a big commuter school. I feel as if the lack of school spirit is due to the fact that the majority of the students who attent UNT are from the Dallas/Ft Worth area and tend to go home quite often.
My first semester's classmates really reflect today's modern campus' with perhaps 15 or more countries represented in some of my larger classes. Fashion 'runs the gamut' with everything from "I just got up and wore yesterday's jeans and T", to flashy colors on designer clothes! I was surprised with the range of ages as well, estimating they run from 17 or 18 up to at least 45 years of age. At least a lot of students do wear our school colors, basically green, and often -especially on 'game Fridays'.
I wish I knew more about what this program expects out of its students.
Commuter school ttha offers an excellent variety of opportunities with engaging staff members.
In the past semester i have been attending UNT, i have met a lot of different kind of people. I dont really know what kind of person would not enjoy this school. However, a person who does not enjoy spending time working with or getting to know others may not want to attend UNT, because we learn a lot about networking here.
The University of North Texas is unique because of its incredible music program. Unlike other schools that are known for their football or basketball teams, UNT sets itself apart by being one of the best music colleges in the country. Being one of the best music colleges in the country really lets you appreciate musicians more and all of the hard work they put into making amazing music.
there is none, I love my school.
The kind of person that should attend UNT is a person that is willing to work hard and has a good amount of dedication. They should be willing to sacrifice alot of time and effort to make themselves and the school look good. The person should be prepared to study, work hard, and overall reach their goal in life. They should know that this is the right place for them, because at UNT they encourage that and so do the professors. Even though times may get hard and distracting they should know the right way to go and be determined.
It's very convenient. I can get across campus in 10-15 minutes, but it's big enough to feel like you are in college, not high school.
My professors are excellent and very knowledgeable. The classes are very challenging. It's too bad that the MBA program administration are doing much to advertise this to the rest of the country.
I'm in the MBA program and very dissapointed about the fact that there is no structure to it. Professors and advisors don't encourage or help you get internships. They come and teach their class and their done. Most MBA programs work with professors to make sure that they communicate to students the importance of an internship, of getting a job, of networkin. In fact, most MBA programs create a networking environment so students develop strong relationships.
Also, professors don't encourage us to participate in any school activities. The school should not take for granted the value of making the members of an organization feel part of it.
The major stereotype is that everyone is going to major in music and people are almost shocked whenever I tell them I am not one.
In my opinion, the most popular organization on campus are the fraternities and sororities. I am involved in a non-panhellinic christian sorority, and I have met some of my best friends because of my involvement, not just my sisters, but also by involvement in greek week and interacting with other fraternities and sororities. The stereotype is that most of greek life is just partying, but it is a lot more than just drinking together on the weekends. We do community service together, have clean non-alcoholic date parties with other fraternities, and have weekend retreats together to just have fun. If partying is an interest, then there are opportunities, but there are other things to do also. A lot of students go to college nights at clubs like Billy-Bob's, and places like the Denton Cinemark and Movie Tavern have college discount nights. Homecoming is a huge deal at UNT every year, and there is a big parade and every organization makes a float. Football is also very important to our university, although we haven't been very good in the past, students still make tailgating and going to the games into a big social event.
I chose UNT because I had heard awesome things about the Mayborn School of Journalism here, and since I am a Journalism major, that is one reason why I was drawn towards this school. Another reason I chose UNT is because it is only a 45 minutes drive back home. I have always been kind of a homebody, and I am extremely close to my family. I didn't really feel I was ready to be more then an hour away from my parents, so UNT was the perfect option! Is far enough away to where I won't run into my parents around town, but close enough where I can go home on the weekends, or run home after class if I forget something at home. Also, since I did grow up in the DFW metroplex, I am familiar with the area and never have to worry about getting lost if my friends and I decide to drive to Dallas or Fort Worth!
I think the the stereotype for most students at UNT, is that it is a very artsy, and liberal school. I do believe that this is a pretty accurate stereotype. When most people think of colleges, especially ones in the south, they imagine a lot of preppy, sorority/fraternity students wearing nothing but khakis, and polo's who party all the time. UNT has a very low greek population and is an extremely diverse campus. We have students from all ethnicities, and backgrounds. We have everyone from the artsy students, to the preppy greek students. You can see all types of students on a daily walk through campus.
everyone in denton has a nicotine addiction and wants for you to gain one.
