Wendell - 07/28/2022

UNT is a great college. I love it there, because there is always something to do even when you are not in class. It even matches my preferences of what I want to do as an undergrad. I am a STEM Major, but I also like to play music as a hobby. UNT matches exactly what I want to do before I go on and become a graduate student.

Jordan - 07/08/2022

UNT is a good school for artistic minded individuals, there's some bumps and areas for improvement but it's a good school. All in all, it's not bad. Sure the president is a bit of a tool but you can't have perfection in everything. Generally, it's a safe campus and the teachers care about the students

Natalia - 04/21/2022

I think that school is a great distance from home and everything that I'm used to. My main goal is to push myself to be someone I want to be proud of. I want to seek new opportunities and UNT has granted me that opportunity. I received so many chances from the school after two years of sorting out my personal life as well as my academic life.

  4. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    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.

  5. Describe the students at your school.

    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'.

  15. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    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.

  18. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    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.

  19. Why did you decide to go to this school?

    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!

  20. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    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.
