Very student orientated! With all of my high school friends being scattered across the state at different colleges, I notice that a lot of their campuses don't have many student activities. UNT is perfect for that! There are so many opportunities to interact with other students on campus from the various events that the University Program Council host.

I have now attended UNT for almost 3 years now. What drew to the school was its affordability, as well as, the diversity. The campus includes a broad range of students, but even though many are from different backgrounds, the campus has the ability of bringing everyone together. While living on campus, I have never felt more safe, safety is a top priority for the school and I am proud to call myself an eagle. The resources available on school are simply amazing, so you should never feel behind on anything course related. For the future, I am considering on continuing with a graduate academic career in the near future at UNT. Go Mean Green!
The University of North Texas is a great school, you get the freedom to make your own choices for the first time in your life while being surrounded by a community that offers you resources to succeed. Here you are free to be the best you that you can be! The only downside that I have encountered is that the financial aid process is more difficult than it needs to be, following a lengthy, repetitive, and confusing process. The buildings are a little boring so if you are choosing a school based on looks UNT may not be your first choice. You will feel very safe as cops can be spotted around campus 24/7 watching to make sure everyone is kept safe. The food is amazing with a variety of foods including vegan options.
