University of North Texas Reviews
I was surprised by the acceptance and encouragement of diversity on campus. I love the many opportunities to get involved and make a difference in the community surrounding campus, and issues at large. My professors have been, on average, understanding, and informative. Topics of interests are taught and feedback outlets are widely available. There are sources for mental health care as well as general health and counseling. The gym facilities are vast and a variety of classes are offered. I appreciate the "Mean Green" nature of facilities on campus to reduce environmental impact and most importantly to me, a fully vegan cafeteria on campus. I spend a lot of my time there in the calming atmosphere and love nutritious options to fuel my studying efforts. I've made amazing friends and found comfort in the Denton community. Thankful for all the time I've spent with friends who love and accept me and support social justice as I do. I cannot imagine getting an education from anywhere else!
I’m a music major at UNT, and the experience of a music major is very different from the usual UNT student. Facilities on campus definitely need some work (the art buildings and business buildings are more updated than music/practice buildings). Still, my experience in the college of music has been wonderful! Though it is not perfect, the students and faculty are constantly working hard to make it so. The music academic classes are challenging, but worth it in the end. UNT’s College of Music is known as one of the top music schools in the nation for a reason.
I have completed my Bachelor degree and chose to pursue an MBA at UNT. My experience has been tremendous. I would do it all over again if given the opportunity. The staff and faculty truly care about their students, and the community of the campus is felt even now as we interact remotely. There has never been a question that I could not get answered. When asking someone who did not know they did not defer my question to someone else, rather they took the time to do the research and provide me answers and solutions. During the time of COVID-19 UNT has truly stepped up their resources online and chose to keep their residence halls open. They did this while other schools closed because they recognized some students have no other options if forced to move out during the semester. I feel UNT truly cares and goes above and behind for their community!
