University of North Texas Reviews
The professors here are very personable and the campus is easy to get around! UNT features awesome amenities like a huge food court with plenty of options (the University Union,) free bus transportation, and so many tutoring opportunities if you're struggling! They really care for us students here and offer free mental health counseling, a clinic for any health issues, and assistance with testing/essays. The only downsides would be the parking situation for students that live off campus and freshmen who have to park across I-35 and the older residence halls. Aside from these little obstacles, UNT is a wonderful university (and definitely worth the price!) Go Mean Green!
To me personally, University of North Texas is the best for everybody who has creative minds or not, you will get what you want at the end of each semester i.e the good education from the professors. Since i'm a sophomore currently, I'm experiencing lots of fun times in the University of North Texas through studying with friends and talking with professors. The professors really care about your education and they also try themselves to improve further to teach the students. The student staff members are also very helpful to the students and also try their best to teach the best possible solutions to the students. Also the restaurants and the fast food chains are also good in that they also serve the best food as they can and also security staff is good too. I hope this helps a lot. Thanks!
I have visited the University of North Texas many times and I've loved it every time. My mentor, Kevin Sanders, helped me a lot and showed me around the campus. I attended the Admitted Student's Day and was met by a plethora of friendly, new faces. The students were awesome. Our group leaders were fun and energetic. I toured the dorms with my mentor, got insight on the best classes to take, and met some of the professors. One thing I absolutely ADORE about UNT is the fact that I can have fun on campus without partying or drinking. They have NBA 2K tournaments, intramural sports, golf kart karaoke, and more! There are so many good things I could say about this institution, but there are too many to think of. The only thing I would change is the online housing application. All of the residence halls say full, but if you call you can get into a different hall. All in all, the school is great. I can definitely see why it is ranked in the Top Ten Public Universities in Texas.
