    Art and Music students are everywhere, and with good reason considering the focus on those programs. Commuters are in great supply. A lot of the students are from the area, so most go home on the weekends but that doesn't mean campus in dead if you know where to look. Any student who doesn't want to pay an arm and a leg for a good education belongs at this school - with the already low price and the abundance of scholarships, loans, and grants, it's perfect. It's also a very diverse school with many opinions and people from all around.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's predominantly an arts school with the big emphasis on music, but given its reputation, that should be no shock to anyone. That doesn't mean that the other programs are ignored. Most of the teachers are good, but before you enroll, check the teachers out on ratemyprofessor.com because just like every other school out there, we have our share of bad professors. It has a good atmosphere with tons of activities if you know where to look for them - most activities are advertised by the school email and flyers around campus. There plenty of intramural and club sports for everyone, and all students have free admission into the gym and all sporting events. If you just want to hang out with people the Student Union and Willis Library are the places to be, especially later in the afternoon. The food isn't half bad. Bruce is the most convenient cafeteria, and its food is decent. Mean Greens at Maple Hall is the best food on campus - although I've heard that Victory Hall has some good food as well. As far as dorms go, they're not half bad, although probably not worth how much you pay for them unless you pay extra to live at Traditions or Sante Fe or get accepted into the Honors College and can live in Honors Hall. Parking on campus is very difficult, but there is always a space open if you're willing to walk a little.

    North Texas has the allure of having a great art/music school with the diversity (and affordability!) you would expect from a state school. Denton is a great city as well with many parks and festivals to partake in. The public transportation is fairly decent as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Weird/art kids tend to gravitate towards Bruce Hall their first year (myself included). Most residence halls have a distinctive community feel. Mean Greens has the best food on campus with the paninis being the best.

    The University definitely has an extremely broad horizon of students. Because the Visual Arts program is extremely well known and growing, there are alot of artsy people. I think this school is perfect for those who may want to spend a few semesters close to home before they go further away to a different school, but definitely is worth spending all four years at as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    When coming to the University of North Texas, make sure you become a part of one of the hundreds of organizations the University has to offer. It really is helpful when it comes to meeting new people with similar interests. And also, as a first year or even second year student, having a meal plan is an excellent choice. It gives you the ability to meet others and be social, and its fairly cheap!

    Am enjoying being here

    The location of this campus, Denton, can be extremely dull at times, but the overall atmosphere of the school is gorgeous. On top of that, there is such a variety of students, you will never have trouble looking for the right crowd to fit in with.

    Am learning a lot

    Overall, the University of North Texas is a very accredited institution. However, every now and then you will find a blow off class or professor that might be alot easier/harder than others at the same level.

    The University of North Texas is perfect for any student who likes music or who gets along well with musicians. The school also has a lot of art students, and is likely the most liberal-minded university in Texas. Avid football fans might be disappointed in the school's football team, but they are still close-enough to Dallas that they can cheer for the Cowboys instead.

    Tips for prospective students

    Paying the extra money to live in one of the newer dorms is worth it; the most recently built dorms at UNT more closely resemble apartments than traditional student dormitories. Many have private rooms and kitchenettes.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT has been named one of America's Best College Buys for many years, and is significantly more affordable than most other Texas universities. It is still more expensive than community college, but many students receive at least partial scholarships and since it is such a large university there are plenty of places to work on campus.

    Am enjoying being here

    The city of Denton is one of the top cities for indie music in the country, and with the huge music college it seems like everyone here either plays music or knows people who do. It is also pretty close to Dallas, and the campus--while not the most beautiful campus in the country--is nice and has lots of old trees that look great during the fall.

    Am learning a lot

    I have learned a lot in all of my classes at UNT so far. Most of the professors are really helpful with making sure that all of the students understand the information that is presented to them, and tailor the pace of the lessons accordingly.

    Anyone. You see art kids walking around, jocks, nerds, cool kids, gay/lesbian every type of person is here at UNT. There is a place for everyone here, I love it!

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be shy. Everyone is in a great mood, and ready to learn and get to know more about you! An awesome environment to really break out and be yourself. Like I said, there is so much diversity and people are very, very accepting.

    Bang for the buck

    Definitely worth the money. I feel like UNT is an amazing secret catch in college education because we have so many distinguished professors that our education surpasses the amount they ask to be paid. They are very fair with fees.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am absoluetly enjoying myself here. I love meeting new people, and this is a perfect place to do that. There is so much diversity that it is contagious to want to go out there and show off your own unique personality. They really do cater to the student, and make sure that there are tons of events for you to go and get free food and stuff and mingle with new people.

    Am learning a lot

    UNT is an awesome place to not only learn new curriculum that will benefit you in our degree, but also to teach you about life in general. You meet and come into contact with so many different kinds of people, that being a freshman and living on campus is such a learning experience.

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice for any student looking to come here for school would be to attend some sort of orientation, whether it be Transfer or Freshman. Talk to people and try to make friends with people in your hallway, classes, even those in the cafeteria! You never know who could turn out to be your best friend and it is so much easier to survive college if you have people close to you that are going through the same situations!

    Bang for the buck

    Every university is expensive but it depends on where you think you belong. So far i've received every bit of information that I believe I payed for and so much more! The meal plan that is mandatory for freshman is a bit pricey but you'll never going hungry! Within the many fees you pay, you can print anytime you want in the computer labs for free, workout at the Recreation Center for free, and access all sorts of things in the library for free also!

    Am enjoying being here

    After the shock of new friends, new challenges, new classes, new everything, I love it! Every day brings something new if you want it to. There are so many things to do all the time whether it be hanging out with friends at a coffeehouse on the square, attending one of the many shows around town and on campus, or simply watching our Mean Green as they face off against the enemy, it's never dull!

    Am learning a lot

    As a music major, attending the top jazz school in the country, the knowledge available is boundless! Every day I am learning something new, but not only from the professors. My fellow classmates continually amaze me with their talent and their knowledge of the same art that intrigues me so much! Every person is passionate about what they do and are rarely hesitant to help if help is needed!

    Night Owls Non-working Those with previous work experience

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you like where you will be living first and if you need a job apply in June or July. If you don't like noise don't stay in a dorm. Best freshmen halls for walking to class are Kerr and Maple as they have food for first thing in the morning and bus stops right in front of them. Also DON'T DO MORNING CLASSES!!! It's not like high school 8am because at least there you can go to bed before oh say... midnight?

    Bang for the buck

    It's not community college cheap but it's alright.

    Am enjoying being here

    I'm not really a Denton fan, don't get me wrong the school is great but careful on your driving, cops get bored here. Also motorcycles? Don't bring them. Never have car thefts but we had 8 motorcycles stolen in one night the first month of school!

    Am learning a lot

    Most of the teachers know their stuff and are pretty entertaining but some I have one or two who should probably go teach high school or stop getting off on tangents.

    UNT is a great school for whatever student you may be. It will fit any major and help you to excell.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to college having an open mind and be ready for a new experience different from anything you have ever experienced. Be prepared for more homework and course work and don't be afraid to ask for help from the tuitors, professors and fellow students.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is noted for it having one of the best educations for the least expensive price. UNT has one of the cheapest tuitions for the standard of education it will provide.

    Will enjoy being here

    I have had many friends attend UNT as well as family. Each person that has attended as loved their time there and have made many life long friends.

    Will learn a lot

    With UNT having a very well rounded selection of academics and a recognized proficiency, I expect to learn anything and everything I hope to learn. I know I will be able to have the best experience here and be fully prepared for Law school after graduation.

    This school is great for students looking for a diverse surrounding, large classes, and surrounding amenities such as close grocery stores and restaurants. The school is mainly and art school, so anyone whose focus is performing or visual arts, this is the school for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    College is what you make it. You are your own teacher. With any college you attend the teacher is never going to teach you 100% of what you have to learn. You must meet them half way by reading prior to class and doing outside research. The University of North Texas is a great school for students looking into the Arts, weather it be performing or visual. For engineering students I would recommend looking into other school prior, however the engineering building is amazing and the department provides you with many opportunities such as career fairs and project classes.

    Bang for the buck

    For the most part, you get what you pay for at this school. The service from financial aid are very good and tend to operate smoothly. The school food is pretty okay in the dorms. and you have a variety to choose from. The dorms themselves could use a bit more maintenance as far as elevators and bugs.

    Am enjoying being here

    UNT is a fun, exciting, diverse atmosphere. You see someone you have never seen before everyday because it is a very large school. There are always activities to do for the students, so you are hardly ever bored. The activities are great ways to meet new faces.

    Am learning a lot

    The Electrical Engineering program at UNT is fairly new. Though you you learn many new things, the program does not leave you completely comfortable with what you should know. I find that many of the professors are experts, however they are not very good teachers. They know what they are talking about, however many of the professors do not know how to communicate in a teaching technique. This may be a result of UNT being a primarily Arts based school.

    Honestly, anybody can find a fit at UNT. We have a lot of commuters who come strictly to get their degree, but we also have a great community on-campus and in Denton. The Greek life is really thriving and we have so many clubs and organizations for any interest.

    Tips for prospective students

    UNT is growing closer and closer to becoming a tier one university. So when you come, bring that Mean Green pride with you! Support our football team at the new stadium in the fall, wear green on Fridays, and be proud of the Mean Green! Also, live in a residence hall for at least your first year. It's required, but many freshman find a way of getting around it. But, you'l find that living in a residence hall your freshman year really helps you transition to the college life and you'll make life long friends there. Plus UNT Housing and Residence Life has so much to offer as far as the learning communities, called REAL communities, the programs, and housing associations.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is definitely one of the best schools for your money. It's even been on the national list for the best education for your money three years in a row. My best friend goes to TCU and pays SO much more than I do, for the same quality education!

    Am enjoying being here

    I love it at UNT. The community is so diverse and united. Once you find your place at UNT, my happens to be with Housing, you are sure to feel at home! Join clubs and organizations because UNT has so many to offer and that's where you're going to find your closest friends and connections. Plus, Denton is an awesome town with cool local businesses and such. Make sure you go to the square!

    Am learning a lot

    The faculty and staff here at UNT are the biggest resource to students, but you have to be active in using them as your resources! Professors are impressed by those who take time to talk to them during their office hours, so do it! If you are having any problem, may it be academic, social, or emotional, go talk to them about it! These people wouldn't be at the university if they didn't want you to succeed. It's not like they get paid a fortune to do so. Also, the people in your major are experienced and have connections in your field. So pay attention in class, take their advice and build strong relationships with them. They have the connections to get you internships and jobs. UNT is what you make of it! It can be a great place for learning but you have to be active in learning.

    UNT is home to such a ridiculously wide variety of students that it's almost overwhelming, but fear not! There's a place for you. Obviously, Music students would be most at home here, but that's not the only thing we've got going on here. We have an exceptional Theatre program here, and our Accounting and Business majors are above par. We also have an amazing Art program, and if you're into Design of any kind (fashion, graphic, or interior), then we have a place for you as well. These are but a FEW of the many opportunities that UNT has waiting for you, so quit reading this and check it out! You'll find that there's much more than I was able to fit in this review.

    Tips for prospective students

    TALK TO YOUR T.A.'S AND PROFESSORS!!! I cannot stress this enough!!! They are not going to bite your head off if you ask to talk to them during office hours, and if you can't make it to those, they will schedule a meeting with you at both of your earliest conveniences. If you are in a class of 400+ people and your name is unknown to them, they will be that much less likely to help you when you need it. A way to prevent being overlooked is to sit in the FRONT of the class and PARTICIPATE in class discussion. Doing this will show that you have a vested interest in the class, plus it's easier to see and hear the teacher and board/projection/power-point. Also... do NOT let partying destroy your study and sleep habits. It's fine to go to a few, I did, but make sure you understand that your grades come first, because what else are you paying for if not to learn? Remember the saying Good grades, enough sleep, and a social life. Pick two, welcome to college? You don't really know how true that is until you're here. In addition to this conundrum, most students, myself included, have one or more part-time jobs, and then time management becomes more of a crucial skill than it already is. So to recap: Get to know the people who can help you, prioritize, and make sure you're actually getting some sleep. It catches up with you when you don't.

    Bang for the buck

    College is expensive. That's true of any university you pick, albeit some cost more than others. But at UNT, you're guaranteed to get the most out your tuition; you just have to know what's available to you. For instance, part of your fees pay for the random computers that are all over campus. These are there for you, so use them! Your library fees are included, and as extensive as Willis Library is, you would be silly not to use it. (I didn't learn this till my second semester... big mistake!!!) Another thing people may not know is that residence halls are always having events that are free for UNT students, and that Bruce Hall tends to be the most proficient at this. Speaking of, Bruce Hall is centrally located on campus, and because of this is a central hub of sorts. In addition to it's location, the cafeteria is being expanded over the summer, which means that Bruce Cafeteria will be able to serve even more people than ever before, and trust me, it gets busy in there!

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy UNT. Everyone I know enjoys UNT. The reason for this? It's simply because there's something for everyone. At UNT, there are so many clubs, organizations, and fraternities, that the last thing you should be doing is sitting in your room bored out of your mind. Seeing as UNT has quite the reputation for music, you should know that there are concerts, recitals, and all manner of performances almost EVERY day!!! Not a concert-goer? Then check out the fitness center. There's so much to there, even I go to the gym every once in a while! They have an amazing indoor pool, an upstairs jogging track, multiple basketball courts, and enough workout equipment to scare an Olympic athlete. The best part? It's all FREE for UNT students!!! What are you waiting for?!? Join the Mean Green and you'll understand just what an amazing community this truly is!

    Am learning a lot

    At UNT, there are MANY opportunities to learn what you need to know, and an amazing amount of resources available to you. For instance, Willis Library is always open late, and there is a 24-hour computer lab just for students! If they don't have the book you need, they know how to get it. There are grad students that VOLUNTEER their time to help YOU, just so you can be ensured the success you deserve. There are quite a few areas on campus that are perfect for studying, and the professors are always eager to help you, provided you're willing to ask for their assistance. If you live in a residence hall, the R.A.'s (Resident Assistants) are trained (and quite happy) to assist you with anything you may need. Many of them are upper-level students in their field of study, and if they can't help you, they know someone who can. There are so many paths to success at UNT, which leaves no question about it being the best college you could hope to attend!!!

    Food is not bad here and there are many options. Dorms are also quite nice, including the older dorms. The school is currently working on building a new Stadium, a new parking garage, and possibly a new Union so future students will be well off.

    People who are tolerant of many different views. People who are ready to meet all kinds of people. People who want to have fun.

    Tips for prospective students

    I have a roommate who never leaves the room. She also happens to have a boyfriend who she is always on the phone with. I want to shoot my head every time they decide to strike up a conversation when I am ready to go to sleep. With that being said, do not come to college planning to be glued to your boyfriend or girlfriend all the time. I am not saying that every one should come single to college either. I am simply saying that you should come ready to do experience.

    Bang for the buck

    Overall, tuition for UNT is not relatively expensive. 18 grand a year sounds a lot more appealing than 40. However, housing is expensive. Six thousand per year is pretty expensive for a standard residence hall where you have only a bed, a desk and restroom you have to share with three other people. One more thing, do not get the seven-day meal plan unless you are from a super far away city. Trust me, you will not be on campus nearly enough that it will be worth it to have to pay for the two extra days.

    Am enjoying being here

    It took me awhile to find the people who are my friends today, but I found them. As long as you try to find friends, you are bound to find and keep some. Once you find a few, they just keep multiplying and multiplying. Next thing you know, you are never bored!

    Am learning a lot

    The school is has a large student body, but that has helped me find who I am. Because there are so many different people here, it was easy for me to find who I wanted to hang out with and who I want to be. Although UNT is a large school, no one is really left behind because there are help centers that provide students with assistance. If that isn't enough, students can easily form study groups. I am a freshman this semester, and I am proud to admit that I am doing really well thanks to the resources here on campus.

    I would say it is great for all kinds of students. But this is a very big fine arts school. So if you are very artistic and talented in that field you would definitely love it here. There is always music playing everywhere you go on campus which also makes it a very fun environment.

    Tips for prospective students

    Learn study habits before going to any college. Take advantage of everything your campus has to offer. And also just have fun while your here. Take a break from studying every once in a while.

    Bang for the buck

    It can be a little expensive depending on how you look at it. I believe that is is well worth it. You get tons of tutoring opportunities and just a lot of great things to help you further your education while here.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love it here! There is always something on campus to do. Plus if you want to go off campus there are buses that go everywhere around Denton. Once you start riding the buses it is very easy to get around without a car.

    Am learning a lot

    UNT has a great mix of classes for everyone. A lot of the classes I am in now are difficult and easy. They each have times when it seems absolutely pointless to be sitting in class but there are many other days that it seems like your learning an overwhelming amount of information. If you spend your time outside of class studying, you should have no problem.

    The University of North Texas is well known for being an arts school, so if you are an art major or music major of any sort, this school is definitely one you want to be on the top of your list. This school is also big on education, so if you are looking to teach, you're in good hands. But that isn't to say other areas aren't excellent. The engineering program, fashion program, political science department, and various other departments are far beyond outstanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your research, of course, before you choose a college. I have never, however, met anyone who said they are transferring because they did not like North Texas. I've known several people from high school to return home because they chose the wrong college. Not a single person I've ever come into contact with has said they didn't like UNT. Most, in fact, are sad to leave at the end of the semesters, and always look forward to returning to Denton when classes begin again. But keep an open mind when going to any college. You can definitely meet new people, but it’s easier when you're open to try new things and listen to other people's opinions.

    Bang for the buck

    Since it’s a public university, UNT isn't very expensive. Most people believe you get what you pay for, but North Texas proves you can have a great education without the massive amount of debt after you graduate. Its affordable, has several scholarship opportunities, as well as work programs and work opportunities for those who need extra help. There are several benefits to being a student, for example, free clinic, gym membership (to an AWESOME gym), free printing, free admittance to concerts and many other perks. It’s definitely worth it.

    Am enjoying being here

    Making friends and being social is something most people look forward to when going to college, UNT is no exception. I made several close friends my first year here. There is always something to do, on or off campus. There are several programs and organizations you can join, and none have an obligation to join or continue being a part of. There are also several community service opportunities, which is always a good thing.

    Am learning a lot

    The University of North Texas is known mainly as an arts school, with an excelling jazz program and various other artsy areas, but that isn't to say the other programs don't excel either. For the basics anywhere, you're definitely going to learn only a certain amount. North Texas definitely changes the definition of reviewing basics from high school. This college is filled with prospective students of all ages that are there for one common goal: further their learning. UNT absolutely helps students in this aspect, challenging students far more than most other public college, whether they are junior colleges or universities.

    Campus Safety

    well lit, unt shuttle buses run all over campus and town until like 10:30, and emergency stations are numerous.

    Greek Life

    prevalent on campus in the form of sweatshirts/teeshirts/other clothing items.

    Clubs and Activities

    tons of clubs to join, no matter your interest/schedule, just keep an eye out for a new flyer or even a facebook page in your field of interest! we've got everything from the feminists, democrats, socialists, intramural dodge ball players, dungeons and dragons, glee and much more!

    Great for these types of students

    music, art or education student will really enjoy the extensive options offered in each of these colleges at unt.

    Bang for the buck

    ridiculously low tuition price compared to other public universities in texas. dorm prices are pretty pricey, but they're nicer than off campus and so convenient.

    What to do for fun

    go to the movies on college days (thursday for $3), work out in the fantastic rec center, check out the music scene downtown, hit up fry street if you like to abuse your liver, or just chill out and eat jimmy johns late night in your dorm.

    Food and Dining

    each cafeteria has a different theme, and totally different food. bruce - just well cooked food, every meal, offers homestyle as well as freshly made pizza and pasta. west - lunch and dinner only, homestyle cooking. kerr - open late late late, bluebell ice cream! lots of selection, but not as good as bruce. mean greens @ maple - delicious vegan food, every meal of the day, even delicious if you're not vegan/vegetarian. champs @ victory - far off campus, unless you live at victory, but delicious food!

    Dorm Life

    i live in an economy dorm on campus, and i have a giant (but old) room, communal bathrooms (but get cleaned every morning mon-fri by a professional), and a dining hall downstairs. what more can you ask for?

    Academic Rigor

    the administration recommends students take 15 credits. add any of the following: a part-time job, an intramural sport or hanging out with family and friends, and your free time disappears.

    Tips for prospective students

    visit more than once. you're not likely to run into the same people on campus, eat in the same place, or see the same organizations out and about. its diverse and there are always events going on (free food) if you just look for them.

    In three sentences

    diverse student population, lots of nontraditional students and commuters. lots of options for food on campus. great teachers and class sizes.

    Great for these types of students

    They have majors for almost anyone. That's one of my favorite reasons for attending UNT. If I realize I don't want to major in something, they most likely, will have just about everything else to major in.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early and do all the steps to admissions as soon as you can. That way you'll get many of the steps to admissions and entering into the school out of the way and you can relax and enjoy the school.

    Bang for the buck

    Very affordable. And they have payment plans if you can't pay up front.

    Will enjoy being here

    I've been to the campus 2-3 times already, and it's great. There is also a lot of things to do in Denton. And, the DFW area has over 2 million people and a ton of things to do. You'll never be bored!

    Will learn a lot

    I am planning on majoring in criminal justice, and being a Crime Scene Investigator. The DFW area has aALOT of crime, so I will have many opportunities to learn hands on. And the professors are people who have had experience already in the field.

    It is not a secret that UNT is known for liberal arts! Perfect for art students and musicians! However, there are a wide variety of students! The atmosphere on campus is wonderful and you will be able to meet people in no time!

    Tips for prospective students

    ENJOY THE COLLEGE LIFE! Look at the positives of living on campus if you are a freshman, everyone has to live in dorms at least once in their lives, it is all about the college experience! It was definitely an unusual way of living, so close to your roommate in a tight area but you can make it work! Join the organizations at school, take advantage of the tutors around campus, get to know your professors, go to the many school events where free food and free t shirts are always available! UNT does its best to keep the student community lively and close! Have fun and do good!

    Bang for the buck

    With tuition on the rise, finding an on campus job and applying for scholarships is the smartest thing to do. Although it isn't one of the cheapest school, there are many other universities that are much more expensive, UNT will always try to help you as well.

    Am enjoying being here

    I've grown up in Austin all my life and have never lived anywhere other than Austin. Moving four hours away to go to school, especially to a smaller city such as Denton made me nervous. However, I absolutely love Denton, TX. I think it is the perfect size not to small and not to big, if you ever need a big city atmosphere Dallas in minutes away. As for the campus it is beautiful and filled with people that are easy to get along with!

    Am learning a lot

    Learning a lot at North Texas depends on the amount of effort you put into activities and school work! You get what you give in! There are multiple tutoring times around campus that help you with all sorts of school work. There are also multiple guest speakers that come and speak to you! You have the opportunity to create a great learning environment

    great for all types of students.

    Bang for the buck

    college is expensive. make sure to apply for as many scholarships as possible. but for what this college is priced at, it really is worth it.

    What to do for fun

    there are many different opportunities for students to have fun on campus. these range from movie and game nights in the campus dorm halls to special events (concerts, guest speakers, etc.) in the coliseum.

    Food and Dining

    the dining halls on campus offer the students with exceptional food services that is paid for in the tuition, if the student applies for a meal plan. outside of the on-campus dining halls, there are many different restaurants around the campus that are conveniently placed and very good!

    Dorm Life

    living on campus is a huge factor in obtaining the college life. staying in a dorm while in college has many advantages. when you stay in a dorm, you acquire the privilege of on-campus dining for free (though it's not technically free, it is paid for in your tuition, should you choose a meal plan, which is offered to those who choose to live on campus). living on campus also allows easy and convenient access to social programs, learning activities, and just fun and entertaining things to do with interesting people.

    Academic Rigor

    the staff and faculty on campus really try to enforce the importance of academics. they are always throwing out rules and regulations, and even suggestions, regarding academics. the students follow and even promote these same ideas as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    make sure you practice studying, because in college studying is what gets you the grades needed to succeed. and practice writing too, because there is plenty of writing to be done in college. and as you progress in school, the writing tends to become more and more challenging. so, stay focused primarily on studying and practice (not just of writing, but of any other important scholarly skills).

    In three sentences

    the university of north texas is a well developed university that takes a lot of pride in its students. the staff really go out of their way to fulfill every students' needs and requests. overall, this school is a good school to attend for anyone.

    There are lots of art and music people, also a fair crowd of engineering students. It's great for just about anyone in my opinion. You can really choose for yourself the type of experience you want. You can go through and be anonymous and keep to yourself for four years if that's your thing. Or you can get super-involved and have a million friends and know everyone. There is a good mix of challenging and easier classes. Pretty much the perfect college.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a tour, go to the preview days.

    They have a ton of scholarships for just about everyone. Plus they are inexpensive to start with, for in-state anyway.

    Great for these types of students

    This university is great for anyone wishing to study in music, psychology, or the arts. There is a great jazz program here and all of the design classes are difficult and brutal which will only prove your worth to future employers and help you to learn more.

    Tips for prospective students

    GO TO CLASS! The more you are in class, the more you will learn and the more you will succeed. It may seem like a pain but it is well worth it. Definitely stay on top of your work. You do not want to be that student who is pulling all nighters at the end of the semester. Likely, your grades will suffer. Although this college is fun and exciting it is also challenging and you have to stay on top of your classes and works if you wish to succeed.

    Bang for the buck

    I am definitely learning a lot at this school. Students have to want to learn in order to learn so you can't just show up to class and expect to be the next expert in your field. The teachers are dedicated to the students learning and having a good knowledge base of things affecting not only their majors and future jobs but also their live.

    Am enjoying being here

    This is not only an educational school but one that is fun as well. There is always something going on and the quality of students allows for good friends that you will always have. The teachers are interesting and fun as well. The particular building I am in nearly everyday of my college life, the Art Building, always has something interesting in the Lightwell. There are always shows of some sort of art and there is always something going on down town which is just minutes away from campus.

    Am learning a lot

    This is a great college for anything to do with the arts. I am currently studying Interior Design and the teachers are dedicated to teaching all of the students all they can. We are taught about not only space planning and finish selections but about computer programs that may be helpful to us as Interior Designers and any information that may apply to our major and future jobs. There is a built in internship which we have to take before we can graduate and there is a lot to learn from actually working in your field of choice. The teachers are helpful and you will learn as much as you want to and put your effort into.

    Watch out for the squirrels and bike cyclists! (Even uni-cyclists). They own this campus hands down.

    Every day there is some event going on, and they all have one thing in common. FREE STUFF!! Every college kid loves free stuff, there's no point in buying UNT gear at the bookstore when they just give it out for school spirit on football game days. It never fails. There's either a group trying to rack in more members with free stuff, apartments surrounding the campus giving out free stuff, companies and corporations giving out free opportunities to get a nice job, free information about free cinema standard movie showings on campus at the Union (building where most of the action goes down), and the list goes on and on. The people here are super nice, and it's easy to find your own niche because campus life, food, and Denton life is so diverse.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors here are fantastic. Not only do they encourage their students to think on a deeper level but most of them think they have their own stand-up show. (Their jokes are pretty awful, but they try to keep subjects like Political Science exciting). The weirdest and most abstract teachers are the graduate students, my philosophy professor's eyes would light up each time Aristotle's name was mentioned in discussions. He loved doing his job and jumped at the chance to debate (respectfully), which really helped me get a A!

    Musicians, Psychology Majors, UNT is great for just about any kind of student. There's something for everyone here.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students planning on applying and/or attending UNT should have a pretty good idea of what they want out of a college. While UNT is known for their prestigious Music program, it also offers many other wonderful majors and degree plans. I myself am a Psychology major and am loving every moment of it. Along with its well rounded educational opportunities, its alumni are very impressive. Singer/Musician Norah Jones, Dr. Phil McGraw, Mean Joe Greene, and Author Larry McMurtry are just a few among the well renowned UNT alumni. The campus is always alive, people are everywhere. The Residence Halls are very well kept. I stayed in Victory Hall my first year and absolutely loved it. Athletes mostly resided in Victory, but not everyone there were an athlete or had anything to do with the athletic department, such as myself. All of the Residency Halls have an amazing community feel and it is very easy to make friends. All around UNT is a wonderful choice of college for just about anyone who is interested in great balance of education and social life.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love the atmosphere of UNT itself, but Denton as a city has yet to really win me over.

    It is great for anyone but college is what you make of it!

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are transferring from a different university, make sure that most of your credits will transfer! You do not want to go to a college where you will be extremely behind. Go to student orientation, I know it sounds crazy, but it helps in the long run! Finally, join organizations and clubs! Never be afraid to make a difference and help others!

    UNT is a cost efficient campus that provides a state-of-the-art education at a convenient price for out of state residents and in-state residents.

    Transportation is AWESOME!!! If you do not have a car do not worry at all. Denton has a bus route system that will take you almost any and everywhere you need to go. Grocery Store, Mall, Class, Home, it even has a commuter bus and train, so if you want to go all the way to Dallas you can do that. FREE OF CHARGE just show you UNT student i.d card. If you love to ride your bike, bikes have their own lane so you can ride safely where ever you go!

    I am a very social person, I love interacting with people, and University of North Texas makes that possible everyday. The countless activities and group organizations.

    I am a current transfer student here at UNT, and I have fell in love with the way of teaching here. The professors make sure you find a way to understand the material and get help. When you enroll in your classes you have a recitation for every class, and with doing that you have everyday to learn and get help without falling behind. Everyone is so willing to help.

    I.... freaking.... LOVE UNT. However if you want a football school, go elsewhere. Our Basketball team is pretty good though. But UNT's pride and joy is their music program. Nearly every month, there is a huge concert that students can go to for free to get their dose of classical, rock, or any other type of music. The different kinds of clubs here range from the academic, atheletic, or screwy.

    Am learning a lot

    Even though my desired major was to be East Asian Studies (which UNT doesn't currently offer), UNT's plethora of courses helped me get the courses I needed in order to equivilate myself to an East Asian Studies degree. Most of the teachers here are extremely qualified and most want to see their students succeed in their respective fields.

    Anybody interested in music- this school is famous for their music program. People in the military- They have great ROTC programs and a lot of good things for veterans. Transfer students- It's number one in Texas and number four in the country for transfer students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Research. Make sure you're making the right choice for whatever college you're going to. I'm transferring to UNT because I made the wrong first choice.

    Bang for the buck

    I consider it an average tuition (I'm out of state) but with the scholarships they offer it's going to be a lot lower. It's worth whatever the cost. There's so much to offer in this school and it's in such a great location.

    Will enjoy being here

    I hear they have an excellent music program that gives free concerts. They also have over 300 clubs so there's something for everybody. Also their football team is great! School spirit is top notch at this school.

    Will learn a lot

    I am majoring in Pre-Law so I looked up/researched the professors by using the internet or asking current students and they only had good things to say. And the rate of people that graduate and get successful careers afterward is high.

    If you are an artsy person who loves music, film or anything along those lines, this is a really good school for you. If you love hole in the wall kind of places there are plenty of restaurants and clubs and such that you'd enjoy. This campus is full of hipsters and non-hipsters, but its always got a bit of a chill vibe to it with a bit of silliness mixed in :)

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest really trying to get into and understand the culture at UNT rather than compare it to other big name schools. Always go to the football games even if we start losing, because the last game this year was awesome! Get into some kind of group... this year i decided to do college marching band and it was pretty interesting, and although it does take a lot of time and effort, I made some really good friends and got to experience UNT in a way that I know a lot of my classmates haven't yet.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT has many scholarships and thanks to Cappex you have the ability to dive into all of those opportunities.

    Am enjoying being here

    The first couple of months were kind of hard, and it took a lot of getting used to, but because I met some really cool people and took time to go out and do things on campus it has really become my second home.

    Am learning a lot

    This is my first year at UNT, and I am even surprised as to how much I've learned just over this first semester.

    Music Students, especially those wanting to major in Jazz Studies.

    What to do for fun

    The college campus has a rec center free with student ID that is available everyday of the week and late nights. There's a place called The Square located to the east of campus that offers many cool restaurants (with frequent band performances) and places to shop.

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely tour the campus before attending. I would also suggest trying to sit in on a couple of classes so you can get an idea for the class sizes and professors at the University of North Texas. If you're a music student, try to schedule a meeting with your area's head professor. I found that helpful for both being able to screen who I would potentially study under and for getting to know what they would expect of me for the audition.

    In three sentences

    UNT is an excellent school that provides a world class music program for an affordable price. I love the campus as it is positioned 40 miles from Dallas giving it a secluded feeling. Overall this college satisfies both my desires for a exceptional college of music and for an academic challenge.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of on campus activities, whether they are sponsored but Student Government Association, Campus Life or by our Rec Sports Program. There are a lot of weekly things that go on in our Student Union and then almost year round there are intramural sports available as well as club sports ranging from free to no more than a couple hundred dollars, just depending on how much you are wanting to invest into it.

    Food and Dining

    Cafeterias vary, the nicer and newer dorms don't necessarily have in-house dining so you might have to walk to another dorm to eat. Some of the on campus eating places are good but other are not. Again come and take a look at the campus and see how you like it. There are a lot of close off campus dining choices that are withing walking distance.

    Dorm Life

    I personally didn't live in the dorms but I have a lot of friends who have, apply early and if possible live with someone that you know or with people you know. From what I have heard the dorm is where you are going to meet a lot of your friends that you stay close with throughout your time at UNT.

    Academic Rigor

    The general core classes are going to be similar to high school classes but they are going to be more demanding and less material based and more test and essay writing based, then the upper level classes that are more major specific are going to make you think and work a lot harder.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come and take a tour of Campus, whether that is with out Eagle Ambassadors or a self-guided tour. Come a get the feel for Denton and the atmosphere of campus.

    Food and Dining

    there are many eateries in and around campus so you'll always have options. the union has a corner store for quick bites and offers fresh meal choices to satisfy both vegan/vegetarian and more carnivorous appetites.

    Dorm Life

    having never lived in the dorms, all i can say is that they have made vast improvements in the meal plans since i attended school.

    Academic Rigor

    depends on your major, but all majors are taxing in a positive way. you will have to do research papers and be well versed in your subject matter.

    Tips for prospective students

    take charge of your own education. this includes staying on top of deadlines, homework, and opportunities to expand your college experience. university is what you make of it. join clubs, be involved, and embrace the community in and out of university.

    What to do for fun

    right across the street from the campus is an oxygen bar open only in the afternoons, haven't been yet, but i plan to check it out soon. there is a large variety of places to eat both on campus and in the neighboring area.

    Food and Dining

    abnormally large percent of neighboring businesses seem to be local & independent rather than corporate chains. there are several pizza places, bars, and specialty restaurants (indian, seafood, etc.)

    Dorm Life

    there are lots of campus housing areas, most within 1/2 mile. public buses are free with campus id.

    Academic Rigor

    i have taken several social sciences classes and they did not seem that challenging. this could be due to the fact that many instructors are doctoral candidates. instructors are very willing to spend a few moments after class for any questions and i have yet to find a rude or unpleasant one. i have only had once class so far that didn't have some form of extra credit.

    Tips for prospective students

    Artistic.

    Bang for the buck

    North Texas is much more affordable than other schools and offers a great experience and education.

    What to do for fun

    Party on the weekends; Denton is also known as the other smaller music city and has lots of under ground shows in the bars and house shows around town if you can find them. Dallas and Fort Worth is also located 30 minutes (roughly) each way.

    Food and Dining

    On campus food is just mediocre; it's better than Ramen and Chef Boyardee though. Denton has a lot of good places to eat.

    Dorm Life

    My experience in the dorm was good; the halls are generally well kept and the RAs/HAs are attentive and helpful.

    Academic Rigor

    North Texas' (unless we are talking about the music program) isn't known for being the most challenging school around; but if you apply yourself and go above and beyond the work can be very rigorous and you will learn a lot; it also depends on the classes you take.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be proud of the University no matter what. Also get as involved outside of class work in extracurriculars, going to athletic/arts events etc. as possible.

    In three sentences

    University of North Texas is a great school. Not only is it the third largest school in Texas, it's on it's way to becoming one of the best in the nation. UNT offers great academics and social life as well as the chance to be a part of something special.

    In general I felt safe on campus. Even though we had a few minor incidents on campus, I was never aware of them or personally affected by them.

    I was not involved in any of these.

    Clubs and Activities

    I was involved in the tango club as well as the DPF (soon to be RUF) club on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    There's a lot of diversity on this campus. I really like the music program as well as the dance and theatre program. I also know that they are continuing to invest in more research and development in the math and science fields.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I really don't know of any.

    Bang for the buck

    For what you pay, I'd say you get a pretty good deal. When I first applied to schools in Denton, I also applied to schools in Dallas like SMU. I was pleasantly surprised that for what I payed at UNT, in many ways I got a similar experience as I felt I would have had at SMU. Although there may have been more opportunities at SMU, I felt that I had more creative freedom in my academic career at UNT.

    What to do for fun

    There's all types of things. I didn't do a lot outside of my classes, as I was more dedicated to my studies. However, I did enjoy attending some ballroom classes in there dance clubs they have on campus. I also enjoyed getting to know other religious students in some religious clubs that were on campus.

    Food and Dining

    As I eat mostly vegetarian, I was happy to see that they made an effort towards including more vegetarian foods. They do have some specific dining halls that are more health conscious than others. For a college campus, they have a decent variety.

    Dorm Life

    I lived off campus, so I really can't speak to this.

    Academic Rigor

    It's fairly challenging. I would say that it really depends which department your in. The theatre department was not as challenging as I would have hoped, but I was thankful, that I had the freedom to gain more challenge and variety by taking courses in other related departments to my field.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be open to all sorts of possibilities. Even though my degree was in theatre, I branched out and took other classes in different fields to better myself in my field. From my experiences in the theatre, dance, and music departments, I've had the opportunity to be more well rounded and made a lot of long term professional friendships as a result.

    In three sentences

    I like the scenic beauty of the campus, it creates a restful study environment. Most of the staff and students are friendly. They maintain a great standard of excellence.

    UNT has its own police in addition to Denton Police. The University is pretty safe so is the city. it's a pretty small city there is not much insecurity

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs and activities depending on your interests and your field of study. I am a member of the pre-pharm club and I have to say it has been helpful. Students in clubs help each other concerning books, classes, tips, and teachers to take.

    What to do for fun

    You can always hit Fry street for fun on weekends.

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of options concerning food in UNT and that is something I like.

    Dorm Life

    I haven't been living on the dorm so I can't really relate but I have friends that do stay on the dorm and they seem to like it.

    Academic Rigor

    Instructors from UNT do not curve much. What you get is what you earn. However, most of them are willing to help you do better.

    Tips for prospective students

    As a current student of UNT, I will advise to go to all your classes, do your work and take advantage of all the help such as the free tutoring.

    In three sentences

    What to do for fun

    Theres a beautiful lake in lewisville that I go to. The square is also a nice place to go to, Beth Marie's is a great place to go to for ice cream. The square has so many different places to go to, just to have fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food is okay but in the Union, where they have all the different restaurants, thats where you want to be. Jimmy Johns will be your bestfriend during finals, they deliver until 3AM.

    Dorm Life

    I never lived in a dorm but I spent plenty of time there. The dorm life is intense, fun, indescribable in a sense because you experience so many new things. But in the end you become a better person.

    Academic Rigor

    Great academics, you get the help you need for your classes. Not every class will be a breeze but at the end of the day, you will come out knowing more and feeling alittle closer to your goal.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay focused, I know partying and having fun is a must but getting good grades and going to class is a priority to. You just have to find the right balance between the two.

    Campus Safety

    If there is ever any kind of incident on campus, all students receive an email alert with details.

    Great for these types of students

    relaxed, artistic, casual learning environment.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Nothing too unusual...

    Bang for the buck

    convenience, great teachers, lots of opportunities for students. It's worth the price.

    What to do for fun

    Denton is your typical college town with lots of hang-out places, but it is an amazing place to hear live music. Don't miss the festivals in fall & spring.

    Food and Dining

    Big city= lots of options. Since I didn't stay on campus, I didn't deal with dining halls, but there were lots of hole-in-the-wall restaurants around campus.

    Dorm Life

    I didn't stay in the dorms, but my friends that did loved their time there.

    Academic Rigor

    School is what you make of it. I have had some amazing professors during my time at UNT.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your research, and take time to meet the staff and advisers before the semester begins. They are there to help, but once classes start, things get busy.

    In three sentences

    UNT offers a wide variety of opportunities for students from all backgrounds. Whether you are looking for the traditional college experience with dorms and campus activities, or just looking to complete a degree while working, they can offer it to you. I was lucky enough to experience both sides of the campus, and loved them equally.

    Campus Safety

    The campus has a place you can text if you're ever in an emergency, there's cops everywhere and there's actually posts all around campus you can press to call 911 or Denton police. By accident, it was VERY early in the morning and i leaned on one.. making an ambulance and like 5 cops come.. oops. I was new and tired! That's how I figured out that UNT has GREAT campus safety!

    Greek Life

    OH YEAH, this is where I could write and extremely long essay and have you read it for hours, but I'm not gonna do that to you haha. Greek life is actually 3% of the campus, a VERY small portion of it sadly. But we let ourselves be known. We're always doing activities with fraternities (not just partying ya'll haha) like actual sober ones. We help millions of philanthropies everywhere. I love my sorority (which will not be named, because I don't know who's reading this). My sisters are literally my real life sisters. They're always there for me. My sorority has opened my eyes to bigger and better things and how to achieve them. Let's not forget the parties though, they're a lot of fun. Going greek for me has been the best thing i've done. I'm always doing something wether it's social, philanthropical, for my studies, for a future job or just for leadership.

    Clubs and Activities

    Need a club? you name it UNT's got it. Seriously.. I already mentioned this but there's a club called club awesome. I've always wondered what they do. Also there's like free stuff at every campus activity. I LOVE THAT. I mean, who doesn't like free stuff? Plus they're super fun and people are super nice!

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is GREAT for the type of student that just wants to live. By that I mean, that is not focused on superficial aspects of life, like people from other universities (which will not be named). I see a lot of hipsters, sporty people, nerds, etc. It's a place for anyone really. We always have a lot of transfers from other universities because they didn't like the superficial competitions. We honestly don't have that hear and I LOVE that. Even Though I'm a girl. I hate drama. Not much drama goes on in UNT, just normal college people partying and having fun, and of course studying too!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    A VERY unusual yet annoying tradition is whenever there's a football game, they shoot the most annoying cannon like every ten minutes. Funny story, the cannon caught me off guard and when they shot it i got scared thus spilling my entire coke on some dude in front of me. It was extremely embarrassing and i learned my lesson! Cover your ears and put a lid on your drink!

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is definitely worth the money. It's not super cheap but it's not as expensive as other universities. My parents actually spend the $ so .. I know it's bad.. I don't know much about it. But! that's why i'm filling out this scholarship :D ! TO HELP ! so i guess that's good? haha

    What to do for fun

    There is SO MUCH to do for fun, theres so many clubs and organizations you can join from the traditional math club & art club to the awesome club. Who knows what they do? I guess they're just awesome. If for some reason you can't find one you like (which I doubt) you can make one! The university completely supports students involvement. You could also join a sorority or fraternity! They help you learn about philanthropies and they've personally helped me shape what I want to do and how to achieve it by giving me the tools, skills and connections. If you're more of a volunteer person you could join The Big Event. The areas largest community service that UNT conducts every year. It's a lot of fun! Last but not least, if you're a sporty person there's a club for virtually anything. Even kayak! You could spend your time at the REC center where they have awesome facilities to do any sport like rock climbing.

    Food and Dining

    If you get a meal plan I actually did a feasibility study on the cafeterias at UNT the best one being Bruce, it has the most variety in food, the best service and the closest to all the buildings for a quick grab in between classes. The worst was Maple which is a vegan cafeteria, not many people are vegan. I personally love meat. If you're reading this and you're vegan I'm sorry :(. Not only is it vegan though, it's the one with the least variety of food and the farthest from classes. West has country western food which is obvious given the name, relatively close to classes and Kerr is the closest and it has a good variety of food, mostly fried or unhealthy foods, yet still so so yummy! We also have a cart in campus that makes sandwiches Cuban style and we have the union! The union offers fast food chick-fill-a, taco bell, Chinese, pizza and a cafe if you just want a Starbucks sort of meal or breakfast. Last but not least we have a lot of fast foods and restaurants very near campus such as subway, olive garden and Texas roadhouse. Trust me you will not starve in UNT.

    Dorm Life

    Kerr is not one of the best dorms yet it's not a terrible one either. They're mostly just well, dorms. Can't expect much from a college dorm, but hey, at least it's not a dump. They all basically have just what you need for a college life. They do offer a lot of dorm activities, which is fun because you get to know a lot of the people. I personally liked Santa Fe the most because the rooms are bigger and you get a bathroom with your roommate and no suit mates or other people. You also get a mini kitchen. West is not a bad dorm either, it falls in between Kerr and Santa Fe. Victory is a little far from campus, which is its downfall but it's a big dorm and it's next to the football field for those that are more interested in sports.

    Academic Rigor

    Teachers push you to do your best! I have yet to find a teacher that was not willing to help me with my homework or tests. They get so happy if you go and ask them questions, so don't be shy. That's why they're there! They offer tutoring if you're having trouble with a class. If you find a class hard they definitely give you the resources you need to be able to pass the course and fully comprehend the material.

    Tips for prospective students

    I suggest students to go to UNT because they're a well rounded university. They care for their students and they offer opportunities for anything. I am a part of a sorority there and that's just one of the many organizations you can join. They have the resources for anything you could imagine.

    In three sentences

    UNT has a beautiful campus that has many facilities. The staff is very gracious and willing to help with anything. Anything you need, they'll have a building and staff for it.

    Food and Dining

    Food here is acceptable. It's not restaurant style, but it's tolerable.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm Life is awesome, West is the Best.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor is not too too difficult, it is certainly NOT a school filled with blow-off classes, you do have to study. Here they recommend you study at least 3 hours per credit hour, that does certainly make a huge difference in your GPA. If you feel that your high school taught you well, you should do just fine here and your first (if not all four) year(s) should be a breeze.

    Tips for prospective students

    I know this is beating a dead horse, but when you are told study, study, study. They mean it, I got where I am because I worked hard and studied hard. Also, it's a good idea to generally study until a piece a material is hashed into your brain. By that I mean just don't stare at it for about 2 min and say OK, I'm done, you have got to do about an hour of hardcore studying.

    In three sentences

    This college is awesome, I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. The people here are awesome, the atmosphere is awesome. The classes are excellent and you really learn stuff from excellent professors!!

    Free rec center memberships for all students is an awesome plus. Whether you want to get a workout in before a class or just want to sit around in the hot tub with your friends after a long day of exams, it is more than awesome to get free entrance to this state of the art building.

    What to do for fun

    Keep an eye out for posters around campus, there are always unique and interesting activities going on if you just pay attention.

    Food and Dining

    I loved the vegan cafeteria, but the main cafeteria was a bit bland some of the time. Some meals were repeated too often, I got bored. On the other hand, Champs cafeteria (Victory Hall's dining hall) is always excellent.

    Dorm Life

    I loved living in Clark Hall, I would recommend it to any incoming freshman nervous about dorm life. The people are amazing and the whole place has a feeling of community.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes were a reasonable level of difficult.

    Tips for prospective students

    Buy a good pair of shoes, the hills will destroy your feet. Enjoy the experience!

    In three sentences

    A big university with a small university feeling. There are close to 40,000 kids on campus but it feels like there are 4,000. There's always something going on on campus, so boredom is not an issue.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very safe, there are safety poles located throughout campus, and when the button is pressed the campus PD comes through the speaker while simultaneously sending out a squad car to help. The police are always around campus making sure everything is safe. And within the dorms there are two doorways to get in, especially in the dorms with cafeterias. The first set of doors let in anyone with a meal plan, then the second set let in anyone that lives in that dorm. Then there's the campus wide alert system that sends text messages or calls whenever there's an emergency. the campus is very safe.

    Greek Life

    I'm personally not much into Greek life, but I know its there and a lot of students are into Greek life. The first week before classes start in the fall is rush week and tons of people participate. Then the Greek life is very involved on campus, they put on events, step shows, and are very involved in the community.

    Clubs and Activities

    There's all kinds of clubs and activities on campus, some clubs as popular as student government, and others as lesser known as the Bronies Club. Activities? There's tons. For gamers, I know there's is an annual Halo tournament. Every week there seems to be some kind of party put on by our program council, and free stuff is always involved.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is great for anybody. Any type of person can fit into the atmosphere of this campus

    Bang for the buck

    College is expensive as is, but UNT is cheaper than a lot of schools in the area, but it is also very good school. But some of the stuff to buy on campus can be a bit pricey and housing isn't the cheapest either, but all in all UNT is worth it, especially for the artsy and music majors.

    What to do for fun

    There is tons to do for fun. If your into sports not only are there official sports matches between UNT and another school, there are clubs and intramurals for almost any sport you can think of. UNT also has movies playing every week on campus. Clubs love to put on events on the campus that involves a lot of free stuff. Plus residence halls put on things. Then right off campus is the Denton Square, where there's a movie theater, old-style ice cream shop, and quite few antique shops. Then down the freeway, not a five minute drive, is a mall and some serious shopping. Then there's also some bars and clubs for those who love the nightlife. All in all there's a lot to do for everybody.

    Food and Dining

    There are 5 cafeterias on campus, all with a different feel. There is a cafeteria to handle big groups of people, one for vegans, three for home-style foods. The food is really good, not as good as mommas cooking but really good. Only thing is if you don't pay for a meal plan eating at a cafeteria is really expensive. But the cafeterias are really good.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is amazing. There are 13 dorms for students to live in, all with a different personality. Each dorm has a committee of five that plans amazing events for the dorm. All the RA's are friendly and helpful. You'll always feel welcome. If there ever isn't a fit in your dorm then you could change dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the professor like to give quite a bit of homework but its not too difficult. The professor definitely challenge you in class. I had art classes for the first year and I thought I'd just breeze through it, but I didn't. The classes challenged me and my art became so much better.

    Tips for prospective students

    The atmosphere at this university is amazing so just be yourself, there's room for every type of person. Also the campus may not be massive but it is fairly big, so, if you can familiarize yourself with your buildings before classes start, but the farthest place you'll walk is 10 minutes away at most, and that's if you walk.

    In three sentences

    This university is amazing. There is so much to do for students during free-time, and the classes are fair. There are also a lot of places to do homework.

    Denton square, recycled bookstore, bowling alley, Fry street (bars, live music), volunteer opportunities

    Food and Dining

    Subpar yet edible. The dorm halls, except for the new vegan cafe, don't offer very good food and the meal plan is too expensive for the quality of the food.

    Dorm Life

    Never lived in a dorm, but my boyfriend has (Kerr hall). It was a fun environment and there were lots of great people, but it wasn't very clean? Nothing broke except the laundry machines sometimes. Don't live in a dorm for more than you need to - there are cheaper, nicer apartments around campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Depends on the teacher. My major is anthropology and my teachers definitely challenged me enough to keep my attention. The basic classes are a joke and some are pretty tedious, but I've made all A's without too much effort.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get as many scholarships as you can - if you want a clean dorm experience try to get in the honors college. I transferred so I wasn't able to do this. Don't buy books from the bookstore. It's convenient but expensive.

    In three sentences

    First of all, UNT is a public institution, which will always change the way your college experience occurs. UNT is great for academic learning but it also has good Greek life.

    Rockin Rodeo (Country Dance Bar in Denton, As a country dancer, it's not my favorite but if you're looking for country music close to campus, RR is the place to go) The old town Denton Square, there's lots of shops and restaurants, and it is hope to the BEST coffee in Denton, Jupiter House Coffee (Try the cosmonaut). Fry Street (The bar scene) Movie Tavern in Denton has discounted movies monday-thursday with your Student ID and Cinemark Denton has discounted movies on Thursday nights with student ID. Outside of Denton there's tons to do, you're only 30-45 min outside of Downtown Dallas or Fort Worth. Check out Cowboys Dance hall in Arlington, in my opinion, best honkey-tonk in the DFW. Wednesday nights - Ladies night (no cover for girls 18+). Friday Night - Free Dance lessons 7-8p (free cover for 18+ when attending lessons) 12 and up free cover all night.

    Bruce Hall Cafeteria is my favorite, and second is Maple Hall. Least favorite, Kerr Hall Cafeteria, but it is the only one open on weekends and it is open late.

    I never lived in the dorms so i can not personally speak to the dorm life. I have many friends however who loved living there. I would recommend anyone but Kerr Hall, unless you like the huge, loud dorm with people running around till all hours of the night, then Kerr is for you.

    The campus is pretty safe. Everything is close by and secured and since the campus is pretty busy, nothing bad really happens. I walk to the REC every morning st 5:45am, still dark outside, and I feel perfectly safe.

    Greek life isn't a big, big deal, but it is fun. There is always a fraternity or a sorority hosting something from parties to talent or step shows on campus. They are so much fun to go to.

    Food and Dining

    Kerr is there for you when you need it. It might not taste the best but the fact that it stays open until two in the morning is a BIG plus. Also, flex dollars are very handy. Flex dollars is a special type of money that the university gives you to spend in their campus restaurants and stores.

    Dorm Life

    I enjoyed my time in the dorms. There were sometimes when the Resident Assistants are a little annoying, and the fire drills were a little annoying but other than that it was fun!

    It's an excellent school. I feel like I'm almost going to get the experience of a nice private college at a public university.

    What to do for fun

    Denton isn't known for it's bustling streets, but Dallas isn't far away- and there are lots of opportunities for fun there. Plus, you'll have new close friends that you could have fun with by just spending time together playing some sports in the gym.

    There's a wide variety, and even organic food for those who would rather eat that instead.

    Dorm Life

    The place is smaller than your average bedroom in an actual house, but at least you're never alone. If you need help, you could ask your roomate or someone just across the hall.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm not exactly sure of the academic rigor, because I have not attended just yet, but I'm sure I'll have to do studying to get the grades I want.

    1. Take a tour of the campus. 2. Choose your dorm as quickly as possible- they run out of places quickly.

    The university allows students who want to be successful a chance to do just that, with SI Sessions, or open hours with professors which are very through.

    Greek Life

    Really great! I love the Greek life here, but if you're going to join, make sure it's something that you know will benefit you and make sure it's something that you'll enjoy doing. It is time consuming and there are fees to being Greek, but it helps a lot in the long run.

    Clubs and Activities

    Go Greek, join clubs, get involved in the student government!

    Bang for the buck

    Apply for financial aid and look for scholarships! The university isn't too costly, but it would help a lot if you didn't have to pay for going to school alone.

    What to do for fun

    Just hang out, maybe go see a movie or shop. If you're 21, there's Fry Street to go to, if you're over 18, there are hookah bars, the Square, just different things to do around here and it's all really fun.

    Food and Dining

    On campus, it would definitely depend on which dining hall you go to, but off campus there are many places around the campus within walking distance that are close and very good!

    Dorm Life

    My first year here, I stayed at Clark Hall and I became really good friends with a lot of the people who lived in the dorm, I found my best friends here and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Definitely be involved in the ResLife here because you will make connections that are great!

    Academic Rigor

    Academic rigor definitely depends on what classes you're taking. Science and math classes will be harder than art classes and core classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Check ratemyprofessor.com before actually signing up for classes. Check out the campus, maybe sit in on a class if you can because it'll give you a taste of what to expect.

    In three sentences

    It's very green oriented, which is nice. There are many places to go and see that are old fashioned and the school is very close to those places. The classes here can be vigorous but can also be fun, so choose your professors wisely but make sure it's what you need to do to finish what you're planning on doing.

    Campus Safety

    Campus is very safe, no campus can be 100% safe, but our campus officers do the very best they can to keep everyone safe and sound.

    Greek Life

    Greek life personally isn't for me, but there are multiple Greek frats and sororities. Some are business oriented and some are community oriented.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is so many different clubs on campus, if you want a club on it they probably already have it and if they don't, you can try to create it.

    Great for these types of students

    This college is great for fine arts students, they get all types of speakers to speak with and have great opportunities for internships and apprenticeships.

    Bang for the buck

    With all the costs you pay, they definitely repay you in all the freebies and free activities they provide, sometimes they even throw in free food!

    What to do for fun

    You can go to the square which is only about 2 miles away, you can also go to the movies or go bowling. There are also multiple events you can attend on campus that are usually free!

    Food and Dining

    There are several dining halls to choose from, all with pretty decent food. But it wont be the same as how your mom cooks.

    Dorm Life

    You can easily make friends with the people in your dorm. The RA's provide fun activities to meet people in your dorm and to have safe fun during the school year.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early, get good SAT scores, and try to find lots of scholarships. If you're going to be an art student, get your classes early!!

    In three sentences

    This University is fantastic, it's great where you can walk end to end of campus in 15 minutes, but still feel like a big campus. It's academics are great, especially in the fine arts areas.

    So far my roommate and I get allow fine and you always have some form of help at your dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Because it is an University, at times it can seem life a bit much. Just study and use your time wisely and you should do fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Schedule a personal tour so that your student leader will be better able to answer your questions and so that you do not get pushed to the way-side. 2. Apply for Housing as soon as you can or as soon as the Housing apply form opens. Don't wait or you may not be able to get a room at a dorm. 3. Schedule a meeting with an advisor in your major before you orientation. This will save you a lot of time and effort and it will allow you to talk with him or her more thoroughly that if you were to wait until your orientation to do so. Remember you are just one out of many other future students at your orientation that advisers must see.

    In three sentences

    There are wonderful student leaders here to help with the transitions new student will face from just leaving high school or from transfering from another college or university.

    Tuition is farely cheap for a Texas University.

    What to do for fun

    Attend all activities you can! Whatever interest you do it! You will meet so many people and just enjoy college life. Once its gone you can't go back and relive it.

    Food and Dining

    Each door has its own type of food. Some are better than others, but once you get use to it, food is food especially when your hungry! Victory has the best food by far. (They cater to the athletes that live in the dorm)

    Dorm Life

    Stay at Victory Hall if you can!

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not underestimate the size of the campus. UNT is a small school and easy to be accepted but it takes hard work and dedication to stay on track and stay in good standing with the university. Take advantage of all study groups and sit up front in class, professors will learn your name and be more willing to help you out when it comes to grades.

    In three sentences

    On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best school to attend, I would rate UNT at 8. It has great connections and opportunities for students to grow in whatever career field they desire.

    Secure, well lit, college police on patrol. Good.

    Greek Life

    No idea, do not belong to any.

    Clubs and Activities

    I have not explored any clubs and activities at the school. But there are plenty of clubs and activities at the school. I receive emails and updates on them a lot, but don't have the time to be involved.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for full-time resident students and students on day classes. Evening students, it get's progressively harder to get evening classes towards the last year or so of your degree. If you work days and attend evening classes, you will quickly realize that the school does not gear itself up to cater to evening students to the greatest extent possible.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I am aware of some traditions shared during orientation, but can't tell you what they all are.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT ranks better than most other public 4-year schools in the DFW metroplex in terms of fees. Not to mention, obviously cheaper than private ones.

    What to do for fun

    I may qualify as boring, because I am a student over 30 with a family and don't spend more time than necessary at the campus. No idea on what's for fun.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food was good for the one time I ate a sandwich on-campus. However, I usually eat at home or off-campus restaurants before I get to school for class. I carry my own snacks.

    Dorm Life

    I have no opinion on dorm life as I live off-campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor may vary dependent on the courses you're taking and of course the instructor. Some course material may be difficult but the instructor may be very good at explaining the material and vice versa. Overall, I would say that it is above average but not extremely difficult.

    Tips for prospective students

    Before you start your application process, arrange an appointment with an advisor in the academic program you're considering. If you have more than one major, see the appropriate advisors for each one or discuss with same advisor if they are related. Put in your application early and also make sure to visit with Student Scholarships and Financial Aid office for advice on scholarships and financial aid applications.

    I have attended UNT since Spring 2012 including Summer after having transferred from a junior college. I attend evening classes and had been working fulltime until now. As a result I am not very involved with lot's of campus activities, my review may be limited in some aspects.

    Campus Safety

    The Campus is very safe, there is literally a police station right across the street from one of the dorms. Also there will always be police cars rolling down the street no matter what time a night it is. Of course it will still be smart not to stay out real late by yourself and just to be careful I would buy a pepper spray for your key rings just to carry because even though its very safe you never know what might happen.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is a big thing on our campus, we even have a street for the Greek houses. Also there will be little Takeovers every now and again, where certain frats or sororities strut, pay music, and show you what Greek Life is all about. Rush Week is also at the beginning of school which is a pretty big deal.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are over 200 clubs/organizations you can join. Then of course you can always make up your own.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are really into music, art, design, or anything of that subject this is one of the best schools for you because the schools for these subjects are really big and pretty much run the University.

    Bang for the buck

    School spirit is out of this world, like every Friday is Green Out Day. So you wear as much green as possible and its just a really cool way to show support for your school. Then of course were in Texas so football is one of the biggest sports ever and we just got a new stadium last year so that was exciting.

    What to do for fun

    There is plenty to do for fun. I mean they have so many different activities on campus it changes daily that it is almost impossible to be bored there. Then also once you make friends you will be in their dorm rooms or they will be in yours. Plus the movies are right down the street and on Thursday nights it is college night so the movie only cost 3.50. It is one of the best things ever. Then Dallas is only about 30-40 min away and there is plenty there. Arlington is about the same difference and Six Flags is there so sometimes on the weekend we head that way so that can be real fun for you. Also in the dorms the RA will do fun things to get you involved.

    Food and Dining

    Food was great, I mean you do get tired of it after a while because they serve the same things over but there are five different cafe's so if you get tired of one you could try the other one. Also on campus there is a main area where they have Chick-fil-a, Taco Bell, and some other little places to eat and then walking distance from the campus is Micky D's, Chicken Express, JacknBox, and plenty more. So really there is no way really you should ever go hungry. Plus Walmart is around and you can have fridges in your so keeping food in there is good just in case you need a midnight snack or don't want to leave your room.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life was awesome to me. I however did not experience the whole roommate situation, i had a private room to myself which i liked very much. The only problem i had was with my suite mate and that was because she thought she was too good to clean the bathroom ever and always left that up to me. I however should have talked to her about it but I just figured that people have manners and should know how to clean up after themselves but I learned quickly in college that everyone is not raised the same way you are so sometimes you have to talk to people so they can understand what they are doing wrong. Also you learn that sometimes its okay to either let loose or tighten up. The hardest part was not having someone pushing me like my mom did in high school but once you make friends that will all change.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers are not too hard but they are not easy either. If you are having a problem in class though they give you their emails and also their office hours so you can ask them questions. They challenge your mind so you learn to expand on subjects.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come to North Texas with an open mind and you will fit right in.

    In three sentences

    North Texas is a very diverse school with different ethnicity's I have never seen before. The people are personable and very active. The school is not to big but not too small either just the right size to meet new people but see your friends walking around too.

    Swim in the Rec center's leisure pool, play tennis, hang out on Fry Street.

    Food and Dining

    There are many options for food on and around campus. Five of the dorms have cafeterias and the food is pretty good. The only problem is that one of the five cafeterias is open later in the evening so it narrows your options.

    Dorm Life

    I lived in West Hall and I really enjoyed my stay there. My RA was always there when I needed to ask her a question or needed help with something. I found it very easy to make friends with fellow residents as well as other staff.

    I feel the syllabus they give us at the beginning of each class helps and know what is expected. It is pretty much the same in every class, not really rigor. I have learned a lot in all of my classes at UNT so far. Most of the professors are really helpful with making sure that all of the students understand the information that is presented to them, and tailor the pace of the lessons accordingly.

    Tips for prospective students

    There are a lot of majors to choose from and academic advisors to help along the way. Don't forget to apply for the general scholarship application. Make sure if you get a scholarship check GPA for it to continue each year.

    Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone a little. I don't mean attend parties and such. I mean, making friends in college is a lot different than high school because you aren't with the same people all day. Find some clubs or organizations and be confident.

    Though the campus can seem large, UNT gives a small college feel. There are activities almost every hour of every day, which makes meeting new people very easy. The professors here are helpful and understanding, and the students are great too.

    Academic Rigor

    A school that gives you a lot and expects a lot, but does not overwhelm you with a ridiculous course load of homework every night. Giving you somewhat of a life outside of school. Which is great for other parents out there raising a family and attending college at the same time.

    Tips for prospective students

    Meet with your Advisor EACH and EVERY semester to discuss classes and opportunities for the next semester. If you fail or do not do well in a class, talk with them and they will let you know what is best to do, either retake the course, or take a different course all together, or maybe even switch majors. NEVER switch majors before discussing it with both your current advisor and an advisor for your possible switched major.

    In three sentences

    This college gives you a top notch education while also saving your pocket book with more affordable tutition cost. This discount so to speak does not take away from your education and gives you a well rounded and deep knowledge of whatever major you choose from. The choice of majors is wide and there is one that will fit your choice of career.

    Used to walk from the library to my dorm at two/three in the morning and never once thought anything of it. After dark the dorms entrances require residents to swipe their cards to enter (as an extra measure of security) and there is always a staff member at dorm front desks. Always felt safe.

    Don't take it for granted once you relinquish your meal plan. Sometimes hit or miss, but usually pretty tasty.

    Best experience, by far. Bruce Hall was a lot of fun, and West Hall never, ever slept. An excellent way to meet lifelong friends. Dorms also provide the students with weekly activities and a good selection of board games.

    Campus safety is outstanding here, we have patrols on every block about every 30 minutes. plus we have emergency phones and call buttons all over campus.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Here at UNT when we win a game we light our clock tower green, its an old tradition from when we beat texas A and M a student climbed the tower and painted the face green, because we are MEAN GREEN.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is one of the most affordable colleges in the state and you get quite a few classes for the amount compared to what you'd spend going else where.

    What to do for fun

    we have an amazing recreational center with weights and cardio machines, that when used supply energy to generators. We have a pool and basketball courts and a rock wall. And if your looking for off campus activities we have several clubs that students can join and meet off campus and partake in activities such as frisbee golf or flag foot ball. Ontop of this there's also the Denton square that has restaurants and bars for students to hang out at and there's also the arts and jazz festival that comes every year in the spring.

    Food and Dining

    since I neglected to get a meal plan I can't tell you much about the food on campus, but from my understanding, from my friends, the food is usually good at the beginning of the semester but you'll get used to it and won't like it much after that. I would still recommend a meal plan though since the food at the restaurants is quite over priced, So I would say give it a health balance between eatting out and the meal plan.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are very nice ,you have your personal space and most have a very apartment home feel, which is nice, there are multiple resources to have a good time in the dorms as well, whole floors well get together and have flag football tournaments or go about and decorate for halloween. The dorm reps are always willing to help you if you have an issue and it'll be dealt with in a prompt manner.

    Academic Rigor

    Personally I found the curriculum to be very challenging and all the more rewarding. The professors are always willing to help students whom fall behind and we have multiple resources for students to go to if they need some tutoring.

    Tips for prospective students

    get a meal plan the restaurants here and surrounding the university are way to expensive and buy a bike,

This is a must for students wanting to be apart of something big. The greek system helps with community service and on campus events to promote going green. Along with better the world, greeks have the best social, competative and campus events at the University. Spend the money and get the experience.

    What to do for fun

    Joining an organization really opens up doors for a social life and meeting friends. You can explore the down town square with friends stopping at beth maries for the best ice cream in town, hop apartment gatherings for some late night fun and hit up waterburger at 3am for some munchies. For the older, 21 and up crowd, Fry street is the place to be. Fry street has many bars to choose from and be apart of the best night life in Denton.

    Food and Dining

    The University offers a variety of food choices ranging from vegan to good hearty food. The menus change to students liking and you can always find a hall open after hours for pancakes or waffles.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is an adventure every student should experience. Though the rooms may seem small, old and hot, it's the memories that really matter.

    Academic Rigor

    Because the University of North Texas is a 2 tier school means better teaching and professors willing to listen. As a student, you will attend classes taught by professors, not teaching assistants, which makes for a better overall education, experience and grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips for prospective students: Live on campus your first year as a freshman, it's an experience you do not want to miss out on. Join an organization to make friends and gain skills - though it may cost some extra money but people are willing to help, you gain so much more than lost dollars. Take time picking the right major for you, I changed 3 times before I got it right. Get involved!

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas is expanding in many areas - business, football and overall education, all while going green. The University brings students together with celebrations and keeps an open mind to change and student ideas. I would rate this University at the top for it's teaching, community and spirit.

    The campus is very secure. Our campus police is nationally accredited and an active part in maintaining safety on campus. The only thing is don't get caught speeding on campus. You won't like that ticket.

    Greek life is definitely a blast. If you're considering joining a Greek organization, UNT has you covered.

    Activities are numerous. There are professional organizations, fun clubs, all kinds of things for people to enjoy and there's ALWAYS something going on somewhere.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is one of the nation's largest public universities. That means there are a many different courses available to all kinds of students. That also means the price won't shock your or your parents. It's a great education with a great price.

    What to do for fun

    Denton particularly thrives as a college-oriented city. UNT has a variety of enjoyable experiences nearby. If you want a nice Saturday by the lake, Lake Lewisville is only 15 minutes away. Fry St host a number of restaurants and bars for college students to enjoy and there's always a pool party, organization event, or some other event going on weekly, most at little to no cost for entry. You'll rarely, if ever, be short on what to do for fun.

    Food and Dining

    Our food court in the Union, features many restaurants with various kinds of foods, vegans too. Prices are always reasonable and there's usually a special going on. One floor above the food court is a full fledged restaurant, The Avesta. It features fresh, daily entrees as well as many sandwiches, salads, desserts and vegetarian alternatives. Other dining opportunities include Einsten Bros, Southern Tsunami (fresh sushi), Taco Bell, University Burger Company (satisfying grilled foods), Chick-fil-A, and Mia's Mediterranean (wood-fired pizzas, salads, pastas, etc). Literally a five minute walk from most dorms there are Khush Roti (international sandwiches, delicious, great bottled sodas, vegan chips, homemade peanut butter bars, Lee's Grilled Cheese (includes classic American Grilled Cheese, BBQ Pulled Pork, Mac & Cheese, etc), and the Angry Friar (authentic fish and chips served from a mobile double-decker bus). There are many restaurants to choose from and you never have to eat the same thing two days in a row.

    Dorm Life

    There's a lot of community in the dorms and all of them have a history. Dorms tend to be the place where we begin those friendships that will last those four years and some even the rest of our lives. UNT has a number of dorm halls, 13 to be precise. Each hall has amenities to compliment it, like a main hall with pool tables, ping pong, couches next to a big screen TV, etc. Many also have an on-site cafeteria, some holding unique specialties like hand-made milkshakes, vegan meals, grilling, and many more. Each dorm tends to have a specific kind of student it's dedicated to, some being primarily occupied by freshmen, some having mostly music students, or even health professions. This doesn't mean you can't enter any of these, they're just more oriented towards something than generalized.

    Academic Rigor

    There are many great professors and most classes are kept reasonably sized. Whatever your field is, there's a great professor ready to help you reach your goal, all you have to do is ask. Courses are, if you take them seriously, interesting, challenge you to do your best, and fun. You get out of this experience what you put in. Give it your best and it will be four years well spent.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be active. Find people in your courses, majors, whatever and join study groups. The best way to learn is to share your information and teach somebody else. Take it seriously, but don't live in your room. Get out there. Spend time in the main hall. You could end up with a life long friend. Talk to your professors. MAKE SURE they get to know you and what you want out of this college experience. One of them could write the recommendation that could get you that dream job or into the professional school you want to attend.

    In three sentences

    It's a bustling little city with a lot of love for college students. You'll enjoy the quaint feel, the proximity to our big city Dallas and it's multitude of attractions and nightlife, and most importantly, you'll get a quality education at a great price. What else could you ask for?

    For prospective students something to remember while coming here is to get involved. This University supplies a lot of opportunities that will help in advancing ones resume. The sooner they get involved the better.

    Campus Safety

    There are usually little to no problems being dealt with on campus. We have campus police that either are in their car or on a bicycle. They are partly responsible for keeping the streets quiet at night as well as writing citations for students who are parked in parking spaces without a parking permit. You can buy one online or at the parking office. You are paying for the permit for an entire year. It costs around $250. There are light poles on almost every corner with a red button, which signals the police that someone is in need of help.

    Greek Life

    I have not personally been in a fraternity but I do see things around campus that the frats do that make me want to join one. Most if not all fraternities or sororities participate in community service on campus. It costs to live in one of the frat/sorority houses, and there are several of them on campus. They probably do have some of the best parties.

    Clubs and Activities

    UNT has intramural sports they hold at either the Rec Center or the Physical Education Building(P.E.B.). There is a club for pretty much anything you are into. The fraternities and sororities hold events on many occasions regardless of weather conditions.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are into going to church, Chi Alpha(XA) is a place great to go. It is often confused with a fraternity. It is a church organization that meets every Tuesday for worship, etc. The head coordinators of XA also setup campouts, trips, and other exciting events throughout the semester.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There are not many unusual places on campus, but one place a lot of people like to go to look around or to eat is The Square. A group of people might be at their dorm and one might say, Let's go eat at the square.

    Bang for the buck

    A lot of times, student organizations will hold events outside the Library Mall and serve food and drinks to everyone that is around at the time of the event. Students get discounted prices on almost everything on certain days.

    What to do for fun

    On campus, there are a couple of clubs and a hookah bar that you can attend as long as you are of age. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the dorms if you are looking to go out to eat.

    Food and Dining

    UNT has around six dorms that contain cafeterias in them. All you must have is a meal plan and your student ID so that when you walk inside, your ID is swiped and you may enjoy whatever foods are being served at that specific cafeteria. The menus are posted at dining,unt.edu for all students to check out what is being served within each dorm. There is a union that contains campus chat. It is a dining place that has anything from Taco Bell, to pizza, to Chick-Fil-A. Although there are a lot of people eating at lunch time, the construction of the cafes and the people that work there make it very convenient for students to eat, and even study. Within 3 miles driving distance, there are places to eat off campus. Mcalister's Deli, Cici's Pizza, Burger King, Buffalo Wild Wings, Freebird's and a list of other places you can eat.

    Dorm Life

    Unless it it finals week, there are almost always students in the dorms playing card games, ping pong, watching TV, etc. The dorm noise levels are usually less than moderate. If students need to study in their room, there usually is no problem with that. There are quiet hours in the dorms. Those are generally anywhere from midnight to 10 or 11 A.M. That means loud music or activities are not allowed to be played during these hours. After 9PM, the doors are locked and you swipe your ID at your own dorm to get inside. The Hall Directors and Resident Assistants(RAs) come up with games and activities for all students within your dorm to participate in throughout the year to keep it fun.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors at UNT really care about their job. They want you to learn the subject and most are available on an appointment basis and a few days out of the week at certain times. The class is only as hard as you make it. Take notes and study the material and you will do fine. They do everything they can to help students, such as give extra credit to make up for any missing or failed assignments.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students coming into college should live it up. Make going to class and studying your first priority. It is an amazing experience your first year, but don't take advantage of it by not going to class. There is a very large community of people within the university. Get to know people and develop study groups. Become active in the school and join clubs, fraternities, and other recreational activities.

    In three sentences

    UNT has a wide variety of anything from academic majors to food. The campus is fairly large in size and the networking of people within the dorms is great in number. There is something to do for everyone and your experience on campus is what you make it.

    Here at the University of North Texas, the school colors are green and white, with the theme being Mean Green. Every Friday it is a tradition to show school spirit by dressing in your best green gear!

    What to do for fun

    One thing I have learned is that there are several things to do on this campus. There are things to do such as campus christian ministries, welcome parties for new student, recreation sports, and much much more. I can safely say that there should never be a dull day on this campus.

    Food and Dining

    The University of North Texas has a different set up than I am used to when it comes to the dining halls. Every dining hall is within a dorm, on the first floor of each dorm. It can be a bit of an inconvenience because the dorm halls are so spread out from each other, but it gives you a chance to explore the campus, while comparing and contrasting which dining hall is most enjoyable.

    Dorm Life

    There are about 7 dorms here on campus, and though some are nicer than others, people seem to enjoy them. I enjoy the space in my room, as well as the person I am rooming with this year.

    Academic Rigor

    Being a new student, I have still not experienced the challenge of academics here full throttle. The school seems to be academically challenging as well as quite enjoyable. I enjoy all of my professors thus far, and that always helps when it comes to the curriculum. I feel comfortable enough to ask my professors for help.

    Tips for prospective students

    For any future student, my advise is this. If you are needing to apply for Financial Aid make sure the FAFSA is completed by the deadline of which the school you are attending provides. I made the mistake of procrastinating, so make sure not to do that. It will may off much better in the end to stay ahead of the game so that you do not have any last minute financial worries when it is time to start class.

I am enjoying the school I am currently in, but there are several differences in contrast to the previous university I attended. Since my previous school was a private Christian institution, one can only imagine how different that must have been. But I am adjusting well to the changes, and I am excited to see what else the University of North Texas has to offer me!

    Campus Safety

    It is not a high risk area, and if ever were a person to feel unsafe, then they could simply call a shuttle to pick them up and take them to their dorms or class. There are police cars constantly patrolling.

    The Greek Life is welcoming and enthusiastic. They are always looking for new members.

    Everyone wears green on Friday for Mean Green Spirit Day. There is a bonfire lit for the homecoming game. Boomer the canon is shot off every time the Mean Green football team scores a touchdown.

    Bang for the buck

    It is a fairly inexpensive school, unlike most of the colleges I signed up for. It has many scholarship opportunities, and financial aid available. Every ounce of money is worth it though.

    What to do for fun

    The entire campus is fun. Walking, running, riding bikes. There are also two close by recreational centers than have pools, basketball courts, and an indoor track. Not to mention a smoothie king inside. Oh, there is also a rock wall too. Not limited to the rec centers, there are sports that one can sign up for. Canoeing, mountain climbing, paintball, bootcamps are just a few of the activities to sign up for.

    Food and Dining

    The food is fresh and delicious. Not to mention they serve vegetarian and even vegan dishes for such lifestyles. They have a cereal bar full of every type of cereal, also mile from whole to soy.

    Dorm Life

    All of the dorms are wonderful and have their own unique style. There are little entertainment areas in each lobby for downtime. The rooms are spacious and inviting for furniture and decoration.

    Academic Rigor

    I've never seen a school so well rounded. There is a degree for nearly every field and shows to be outstanding in every aspect.

    Tips for prospective students

    Sign in early, because this is a popular school and classes fill up quick! Don't be alarmed by the size of the campus, it's actually smaller than it seems. Whether you want to be an engineer or an artist, this school has pretty much everything. Never be afraid to ask for help, the people are friendly and are willing to answer your questions in a heartbeat.

    In three sentences

    It is a fun and active environment; there something for every type of student! It is an easy to navigate campus, but there is always help close by. The people are friendly and happy to welcome incoming students.

    Campus Safety

    I always feel safe at UNT. You need your student ID to get into buildings, and if you ever feel unsafe outside at night, you can push a button on poles located on campus and police are there to escort you where you need to be within 30 seconds.

    Clubs and Activities

    Like I said earlier, you are never bored here. With over 400 clubs, you are bound to find something you like. If it doesn't exist, get a group of 11 of your closes friends and make it a club!

    Great for these types of students

    This is a great place for anybody really! I'm majoring in mathematics and I love it. There are a lot of Fine Arts Majors and Business majors here. Don't turn this school down because you aren't a fine arts or business major though. There's something for everyone because there are so many options.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    If you happen to see an albino squirrel, you have good luck for the entire day. If you see a dead squirrel, you have bad luck for the entire day. Everybody wears green on friday's to support Mean Green. It goes crazy here on Earth Day.

    What to do for fun

    UNT always has something for you to do. If it's not athletic games, it's seeing a comedian. If it's not seeing a comedian, it's going to a foam party. If it's not going to a foam party, it's having a party at Target after Target has already closed. You never get bored!

    Food and Dining

    The food is so good! It's a buffet-style cafeteria and with so many cafeterias on campus, it's hard to get sick of the food.

    Dorm Life

    My roommate and I get along great even though I wake her up every morning before I go to class. Whoops! People say hi to you when you're walking down the hallway or write you cute notes on your dry erase board that is on your door.

    Academic Rigor

    So far, the classes seem to be easy. There isn't too much homework; the only problem is that you have to purchase books, but that is the same at any college.

    Tips for prospective students

    The classes are sometimes big, so make sure you're ready for that. I enjoy it being larger than some college campuses. Good luck trying to find a parking spot! Don't sit in your room all day; go outside and meet new people. It's so worth it. With such a diverse group at UNT, it makes meeting new people worth it.

    In three sentences

    The people at University of North Texas are so friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is gorgeous and peaceful. It's in a perfect place in the DFW area!

    What to do for fun

    The University is constantly providing forms of entertainment for its students from movie nights or live performances free of charge or for a very low fee. There is also the Rec center, a fully functional gym with courts, an olympic size track and pools that is entirely free for students. With over 400 clubs and organizations on campus, there is something for everyone from Forensics club to Quidditch. Denton is also a quaint cultural town with musical performances, clubs, shopping and outdoor activities available for low prices.

    Food and Dining

    University of North Texas has several dining halls on campus, each has an individual twist or meal that is unique to it, for example Maple Dining Hall is the vegetarian cafeteria. The facilities are clean and with all you can eat for each seating and late service hours it caters perfectly to a busy college student.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms are a great place to meet people as there are constantly others milling about. Different dorms can be specialized for different types of people, for example Bruce Hall caters more to the Art and Music majors.

    Academic Rigor

    The amount and difficulty of homework, quizzes and tests varies for each course but expect to be intellectually challenged while not intentionally buried in assignments by your professors.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply and register early to ensure that you get the classes you want for each semester. Get to know your academic advisors because they are the most willing to help you and can often have the answers no one else would think of. Don't be afraid to talk to other students, they are full of tips and everyone is very friendly.

    In three sentences

    The campus is commendable for its diversity and friendly air, there are numerous recourses for students to stay active on campus. Professors are enjoyable as they maintain their professionalism but ensure that they are approachable for questions and valid issues students might encounter, there is a level of mutual respect that is rare between students and teachers. The general institution strives for efficiency with its implementation of technology into everyday life, this is both helpful and hurtful to students in that while it does offer a number of resources at the touch of a button, one can get lost and is often treated coldly when face to face assistance is necessary.

    What to do for fun

    Fry Street, but only once you're 21. Nothing is fun around there until then.

    Food and Dining

    Food was delicious! Wish I could have eaten more of it.

    Dorm Life

    I stayed in Kerr Hall, only for a semester. It's expensive and especially being on a co-ed floor, it was very difficult to get sleep when a bunch of others not far from your room are partying it up. Being located right above the dumpster wasn't exactly fun either.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you are prepared for college. When I first started here, I was completely unprepared for the large amount of people at the school and it overwhelmed me how much work there is to do.

    In three sentences

    It is a very diverse atmosphere here, however the number of attending students is absolutely overwhelming. The enormous class sizes some of the classes has makes it very difficult to get help from some of the professors. However there is most certainly a lot of school pride here which I absolutely love!

    Food and Dining

    Freshmen are required to have a meal plan for this school, but the food is great. They offer many different styles of cafeterias such as, an all vegan hall, a Cajun hall, a general foods hall, and many others. We have many places to eat on campus and some high dollar places like Starbucks.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are an average size, but if you want bigger and better, be ready to pay some cash. It is required for freshman to stay in the dorms their first year, but typically the noise level is good and the community is comforting. Almost like a home away from home.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major, there are going to be some very tough courses. However, the professors are very friendly and are always willing to help out a student who is in need.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you go to this school, make sure you are willing to open up and get to know some people. It is a very social school where almost everybody gets to know everybody.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas is a great prospective university for any student wanting a quality education from a large college with that small-town community feel. Not only is it a great school, but there is also so much to do around the area. The traffic gets quite crazy sometimes, but you still can't beat the sense of pride you get by supporting the MEAN GREEN!

    Campus Safety

    There are police everywhere! They are very nice and aren't just searching to pull someone over. If something ever happens call them, they will jump right on your case. There are also safety buttons on all the buildings so if you ever get in a bind run to one and push it and it will notify police.

    Greek Life

    I'm not in a sorority, but many of my friends are. They say rushing is one of the best experiences ever! Theres also a co-ed fraternity called Phi Sigma Pi just for the very excelled students. You have to be invited to join and they have a lot of different things they do like relay for life and help out with the human society.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are countless activities and clubs. Theres always something for someone and if you don't think there is, just go talk to the resource center and they will hook you up!

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is definitely a big music and art school. But also a big science school. Their forensic science program is one of the best in the nation. I think UNT is definitely geared more towards arts and science.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Eagle claw! CAW! If someone walks up to you, throw the claw right back up and CAW back! We are very proud of our Mean Green Eagles! We wear green on fridays just to show support for the whole campus!

    Bang for the buck

    UNT if affordable. One thing people worry about, and should, is the quality of education. Honestly, as a student, I feel as if I'm getting 110% out of the teachers and out of my money spent. I don't regret a thing, I know I'm getting an excellent education that will take me places.

    What to do for fun

    UNT always has events going on. They all are free and have free stuff! You will definitely get plenty of free UNT Mean Green T-shirts at these events. There's also a Rec center that is all Eco-friendly and has many different work out places, pools, tracks, rock wall climbing, and basketball courts. You'll never be bored here!

    Food and Dining

    Food is definitely an A+. All the cafeterias serve a different kind of food. One is mostly homestyle cooking, while they also have an all vegan cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is amazing. The dorms are bigger than most universities, and with the roommate matching quiz, you can pick a room mate that you will get a long with all year long. You can also choose a dorm according to your major. Bruce Hall, for example, it for the music majors. They also have Real Communities. Those are based on different things like majors and community service groups.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are definitely more challenging than others. Depending on what you take will show how many hours you need to study. But needless to say, you will have to study for all of your classes. UNT provides many different study resources at little or absolutely no cost. They want you to get an A.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a tour! You'll fall in love with the UNT campus. Talk to your major department and get to know the people there. Apply early and attend the earliest orientation you can to get good classes! UNT is affordable for everyone and you definitely get all of your monies worth of education. It's a great place to be.

    In three sentences

    UNT is very up to date on eco-friendly ways to conserve energy and make the world better. Also, their research departments are fantastic, a recent one being with Autism. UNT has many different ways to make sure students can study and get tudoring for free.

    Academic Rigor

    There are many dedicated students, but also students who like to mess around. I would say there are more dedicated and studious students.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's okay if you are certain what you want to major in. When you come to college , your mind will be opened even more and you can discover more about yourself and what you desire for your career.

    As long as you don't walk around every day after 3am you are safe, for the most part.

    Great for these types of students

    Arts and Science students i.e. English, History, Biology, Chemistry, Art, Foreign Languages, etc.

    Bang for the buck

    The main reason I chose UNT is because it offered the same quality of education as the University of Texas and A&M for a lower price. Unfortunately, it seems the school will try to join the same league as those two universities, which means it will probably be more expensive in the future.

    What to do for fun

    UNT has several events for a variety of students. It is a frat and sorority school, but they're are more inclusive groups you can join. There are parties every Thursday most of the time open to all students. They also do performances, sporting activities, and other stuff

    Food and Dining

    It's college food, nothing special. Plus it think it is overpriced. Especially if you do not waste food or eat more than three times a day.

    Dorm Life

    Very nice dorms. Some are better than others, but even their cheapest option college inn is not terrible.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take your core curriculum math course over the summer at a smaller campus, you will waste money taking the three math classes it takes to meet core requirements, when you can be exempt from those courses in other colleges by your SAT, ACT, and THEA scores.

    In three sentences

    The dormitories are nicer than most colleges for less the price. The classes are usually well taught, and you can receive a lot of feedback from professors. The people are not too friendly, but you can find friends if you look for them.

    Well so little into the year, not much but there have been many events that have sounded interesting such as the Mythbusters coming to give a speech. Also Max Brooks coming to do a book signing which I'm planning to attend in a week or so. There are so many things to do and I constantly hear people make plans to attend this or that event with their friends.

    Food and Dining

    During orientation, I had dinner at Kerr Hall and it was nice and delicious. There are many lines so people don't have to wait long and there are also different types of food for all people such as vegetarians.

    Dorm Life

    Well for this academic year at UNT, I commute so I don't really experience dorm life. However, I've heard from my friends that they really enjoy dorm life because they get to be with their friends and have freedom they didn't have when they lived with their parents.

    Academic Rigor

    Personally, my classes are not difficult but then again I've been in class for a little more than a month. Classes are what you make them, if you choose to study or not is up to you. Even if the classes are difficult, UNT provides many ways to help you with the classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're thinking about attending, apply, there's no harm done in applying but a heads up, you'll enjoy life at UNT. Whether you become a resident, commute, are a transfer student or international student there are always events for everyone, no one is left out.

    In three sentences

    Never in my school life did I care for school pride but since the first day of attending UNT I felt the need to show that I'm an Eagle and my pride of the Mean Green. UNT also provided a great transition program as they were friendly and helpful since many of them were current students and had been through the same. It's my freshman year at UNT, been in school for a bit more than a month and I've enjoyed it to the fullest especially with all the events that UNT has to offer.

    Campus Safety

    If you stay on campus you are going to be safe. They have the light system that contacts the authorities on campus which has helped a lot of campus crime to drop. Now if you go wondering off into apartments off campus I would have to say that you have a possibility of getting yourself in some trouble

    Greek Life

    Is the highlight of this school to me. I had wanted to transfer, but after meeting my hopefully soon fraternity brothers I may stay just to be with them.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is outstanding in their music careers, so anyone in the field of music will enjoy this school.

    Bang for the buck

    The reason of my parents sending me here was because of me not filling out scholarship forms to attend out of state schools. You get the same education as most other schools.

    What to do for fun

    The only place that I have had fun on in campus is with Greek Life. Meeting a bunch of cool fraternities / sororities has been the most entertaining part of college here at UNT.

    Food and Dining

    It really does depend on where you eat.. There are two halls that are consistent with decent food, which are Victory ( across i35 ) and Bruce Hall ( near the center of campus. ) Everywhere else has it's days where meals are superior, but those days are rare.

    Dorm Life

    I currently live on campus in the economy dorm that is known as West Hall. The only two positives about living in this hall is that the rooms are quite spacious and that the bathrooms are always cleaned throughout the day, but otherwise I have nothing that I would brag about living in this hall.

    Academic Rigor

    Attending school here at UNT is nothing more vigorous than going through High School. All my classes are self-taught so you can learn at your own speed. What has been the hardest part of school here is keeping up with time management.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a medium sized school that has many majors, but it's most profound major has to be in Music. If you are not into that carrer I would say this school is a good way to get a feel of college and than transfer into a larger university.

    There are lots of things to do for fun, but the most fun thing to do is interact with peers, going to the games, and attending student functions. There are also parties, social gatherings, and discussions.

    Dorm life is wonderful. You are walking distance from class and you get to meet really nice people. Having a compatible roommate helps out tremendously.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors have high expectations of their students, therefore it is imperative that you study and stay on task in terms of assignments, discussions, and exams. If you put in a great deal of effort in your studies, then you will do well.

    Tips for prospective students

    The prospective student should major in something that they are passionate about. You must also study at all times in order to be successful in your classes. If a student is having difficulties in a certain class, the tutoring services are always available.

    The University of North Texas is a great school that has empowered me to complete my Bachelor's degree. It is an institution with a foundation for academic excellence and achievement, the classes are small and the professors treat each student with kindness and respect.

    It is great for aspiring dancers, like myself, and also for those who are looking into the field of education. If you are wanting to be a teacher this is a great place to attend.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are planning to attend, like I am, I would recommend doing the easy online applications as well as completing it early so that you will not miss the scholarship deadlines for the upcoming school year, as I did.

    Bang for the buck

    I have looked at many prices for colleges of the same stature as UNT and have found that the prices are really low and easy for low income families to accommodate to. They have many scholarships and a good variety of work opportunities around the college campus as well as the surrounding city.

    Will enjoy being here

    I have also looked into the surrounding area as well as pictures of the campus itself. I think I will enjoy being there. The campus is beautiful and the surrounding town in not too big and it seems pretty amiable.

    Will learn a lot

    I have looked into the education program in talking to peers and adults who have attended here and they have stated that they have learned a lot from the school. They said the teachers are personable and you enjoy learning from them. I can't wait!

    UNT is especially great for music and other students of the arts, being that this university is really well known for its music program. Now, don't be discouraged if you're another major though. I'm a business major and the business teachers here are great, AND we just got a brand new building this year with fantastic accommodations.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tip is that you should definitely take a tour of the beautiful campus before coming here and see the fantastic facilities we have for all majors. Come to UNT with an open mind, willing to learn and grow as both a person and as a student.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is a pretty cost-effective college. While being huge in size and population, it is still cheap to attend, and has great teachers. It is definitely the underdog in the giant pool of universities in Texas, but in my opinion, it's better than most. Also, the meal-plan is amazing because you can have an unlimited amount of meals all week long from 7am to 2am (for midnight snacks) on weekdays, and 7am to 8pm on weekends, which I love.

    Am enjoying being here

    The social aspects of UNT are my absolute favorite part of this university. There is a LOT of diversity in the types of people here, so you definitely learn more about the spectrum of people in the world, and have opportunities to make many friends. I love the community here: Everyone is very accepting/open, everyone likes to make new friends and work together on schoolwork, there are rarely stealing/crime problems... I could go on and on and on. COME TO THIS SCHOOL. It's amazing.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers here are pretty motivated and good at teaching, for the most part. As with any other school you occasionally get a bad teacher, but Rate My Professor helps a lot with avoiding that. Other than that, the teachers here are pretty fantastic and I am learning a LOT.

    UNT isn't insanely pricey like other colleges and along with student aid, it's affordable.

    Everybody I've talked to in admissions are extremely nice, so if everybody are as nice as them - along with all the opportunities - there's no way I couldn't enjoy being here.

    Both my aunt and cousin graduated from UNT, and they rave over how great of an education they got while attending this university. I really believe I will get a great education here.

    Outgoing and social students would definitely like it here because most everyone is friendly and there is a huge variety of students. Other than that, it really is good for everybody. The school is really flexible and relaxed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Try to be outgoing. The school has 35,000+ people so it's really easy to be anonymous. Join a club and stick with it, otherwise you don't meet new people and if you're away from home, it's not fun. Choose your teachers wisely. Use ratemyprofessor.com religiously. Even if you can't avoid a bad teacher, you can at least know what to expect and it'll be less frustrating.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition has gone up this year, but not very much. The school tried very hard to cut costs elsewhere to keep from the tuition from skyrocketing. If I'm correct, it costs about $8,500 a year for tuition and fees. It's not the cheapest school, but it provides a lot of variety in school, clubs and even people.

    Am enjoying being here

    It's a huge school and I feel very anonymous here. I haven't joined any clubs and my classrooms are huge. So in my third semester here, I haven't really made any friends, and that's hard to take when you're away from home. The people here are very nice. I suppose it's the culture here.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers here are great, but just as many are horrible. I've had an even mix of boring and rude teachers who don't help you and nice, funny, eager to help and who know how to teach a class. Even if you do have a bad teacher, you can still get by. The university has great programs that help struggling students.

    Art and Music students will do well here. I've also heard good things about the History, Journalism, and RTF schools.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep your grades up so you can join the UNT Family :D

    Bang for the buck

    This is one of the cheaper schools in Texas but the programs don't suffer for it. We have the best music school, our art school is fantastic, and I've never heard any complaints about other schools in the University. Not to mention you can get everywhere on campus and around the city for free using the DCTA which students get to ride for free. The campus itself is small enough you can get around on foot if you don't feel like taking the bus. So no real need for a car and gas.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is great, and has everything you need right near campus. Denton Square isn't to far either. The professors are usually amazing, knowledgeable and fun. There's also plenty of campus groups to entertain yourself with :D

    Am learning a lot

    The professors I have had thus far really know their stuff, and most even make it fun as well. I'm and art Major with a Japanese minor, and so far in my 3 semesters here I have learned a great deal and have definitely improved in my art. Not to mention all the other pieces of knowledge I pick up in my cores :P

    From what I can tell so far, there's a wide variety of classes that you can take at UNT, especially if you're planning on being a music major. The music program is awesome.

    Great for these types of students

    To be honest, UNT is perfect for all kinds of students. Depending on what you want to major in, there's room for everybody and UNT honestly has majority of the majors that exist in college. UNT is great for those that love music or being in the band since the band rules and UNT takes music majors seriously. If you love science, I believe a good amount of students within UNT is in any science or medical majors. If you love art, the art program is considered one of the best in the state and since I'm pursuing an art major too, I'm serious when I say it's competitive just like other majors and worth your experience in any art majors. Even if you're not sure what to do in life, there's plenty of students going through the same light by going Undeclared until you know what you want to do. To be honestly, I've even seen people involved with the military, with kids and are older than the average 16-27 year old college students at UNT too so there's no reason for not having room at UNT.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just because college is the pathway into freedom and partying doesn't mean that you should sacrifice studying or doing a project for a moment with friends or partying every weekend yet all it takes is a balance of time management. Depending on your financial circumstances, don't blow off the money you get for certain things (clothes, expensive things, etc.) since Housing payments, school supplies and other important personal things are very important to deal with financially outside financial aid in college. Sleep is one the best things to do in the world yet late nights during high school can pay off when you're studying or dealing with a project last minute ( right up my alley ) so sleep can make or break you when it comes to school work.

    Am enjoying being here

    I'm not exactly a people person but despite the odds, I enjoy UNT. I would go into detail about the school spirit when it comes to sporting events but let's just say it's full of green madness & very fun to attend. The RA's, teachers are mostly friendly & the students vary when it comes to personality and interest.

    Am learning a lot

    As a pre-major, it's one rude awakening between what I thought I knew, what I actually know and what I didn't know when it comes to classes or what I learned at UNT. I definitely learned a lot from my classes from what I originally knew and the teachers are very reasonable when it comes getting a better understand of whatever class you take while at UNT. I also learned about the basics of being on my own and figuring out how to balance myself financially. At first, it may seem kinda scary when it comes to dealing with school by yourself but for me, I got the hang of it quickly. UNT isn't just an interesting place when it comes to school spirit but an actual place of learning.

    I feel safe walking on campus. I have a few night classes so sometimes I have to walk back form class kind of late and I never feel in danger. I see the campus police all over. Besides, if anything does happen UNT is quick to post and warn us.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a few great parks, so if you like to sit outside, there are lot of beautiful places. My friends and I often get Frozen Yogurt and then go to a park to eat it.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is great for people who care for the environment like I do. It is easy to recycle, and shopping at thrift stores to reuse clothing but still keep in style is easy. Also there are a lot of vegetarian friendly restaurants and even a vegan friendly on campus cafeteria.

    Bang for the buck

    It is easy to live cheaply in Denton. For one there are lots of events constantly offering free food around campus. But also with all the thrift stores people can keep their shopping habits for a cheaper price.

    What to do for fun

    For fun I love going to the movies, on Thursday it is discounted for college students. Also, like I said before there are a lot of awesome restaurants. My favorite is called Mr. Chopstix, it has the best Asian food hands down. Denton is widely known for its music. There re constantly different shows and people playing at local bars. There are also a few music festivals including South by thirty-five and the Jazz festival. Not to mention there are constantly people playing music around campus, with UNT known for its music department. For shoppers, there are tons of great thrift stores with all kinds of different vintage things to see.

    Food and Dining

    I am on the meal plan and it is nice to have the cereal buffets, but other than that with it nearing the end of the year look forward to not eating at the same places with the same food everyday. Maple cafeteria is vegan friendly and I find it always has the freshest fruits and vegetables. Living in the dorm has limited me to what I can cook, and next year I plan on cooking for myself more. But if you don't like to cook the foods around Denton are amazing. There are a lot of unique restaurants, I work at one off of the downtown square and it has some of the best food I have ever tasted.

    Dorm Life

    I live in West Hall. I have not had any bad experiences in my dorm. My has been awesome from the start. We both have our separate friends but live together wonderfully. I have community bathroom which has its ups and downs. A few ups are that it gets cleaned every week day, I don't have to pay for toilet paper, and it never too busy. A few downs are that people clog up the sinks and can be inconsiderate about their messes made. Overall the rooms are spacious and I have enjoyed living here for my first year of college.

    Academic Rigor

    I find that the quality of your professor is what makes or breaks your class. Ratemyprofessor.com has become my favorite website. One thing I do love about this school is that the classes tend to not be too big and that means I get a lot more individual attention from my professors.

    Tips for prospective students

    One tip I have for students is to get involved from the start, but do not overload yourself socially so that you are unable to do school work. I have noticed that the school has a lot of commuters which can make it hard to find friends. However, if you start from the beginning having a social life is very important in getting through this new change in your life.

    In three sentences

    I read in the North Texas Daily newspaper that it a national tree campus, because of that I never mind walking to class and admiring all of the beautiful trees. There are recycle bins everywhere, the campus is very recycle friendly, with the Recreation Center's power running off of the use of exercise equipment and the new Business Building being built from older buildings. Overall, not only is the campus color green but the campus is very environmentally green as well, and that is one thing I love about it.

    The Music School has a lot of concerts. There is the new football stadium and students get in free. They have a great soccer team, and basketball and soccer. There's always something going on for students!

    Food and Dining

    Lots of variety around campus besides the different school choices. The school has a commitment to healthy food choices, too.

    Dorm Life

    Excellent dorm life. I wasn't prepared for how much I would miss home, but get involved in groups, especially study groups. And I found that getting out of my room and doing something made it easier. There's always something going on.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are tough. Participate in class, though, and you will find the discussions will help. As long as you keep up and don't skip class, you will learn a lot!

    Tips for prospective students

    College is a lot harder than you expect. It is a lot of reading and thinking on your own. UNT has excellent resources to help with tutoring and class assignments. Just don't be afraid to admit you need help!

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas takes its Mean Green slogan seriously. Its new football stadium was named a LEED facility, they have installed three wind turbines to help conserve resources, and their new athletic facilities are awesome. It's big enough that you get a diverse experience, but small enough to have that home town feel to it. The best of both worlds.

    While attending there have been no crazy incidents, that completely scare the crap out of me. But there are some parts like many college's where you don't want to be walking around campus alone at night.

    They have an average Greek Life. Not too crazy.

    UNT has a great selections of clubs to join and that usually consist of alot of activites, even if you arent in a club they have a great selections of activities to choose from.

    UNT isn't too expensive compared to other colleges of its size in TX, and as they continue to grow and get recognized your degree will look even more worth it.

    What to do for fun

    Most will say if you are over 21, you should go to Fry St. Fry St is like a mini 6th St from Austin. If you are not 21 the university usually holds tons of events that can be fun and they are on campus.

    They have many choices of food on campus from chick fil a, to taco bell, and they also have some healthier options in some of the dorm dinning halls, which they have 3 of.

    Campus Safety

    I have never felt unsafe walking around on campus during the evening, but please be constantly aware of your surroundings. There are help monoliths spattered around campus. I have only heard of people getting assaulted on the northern outskirts of campus, so just be careful! Maybe the buddy system is a good idea after all.

    I feel like I've received a quality education at an affordable price.

    What to do for fun

    Well, I got involved in a Christian organization called The Navigators, and loved hanging out with them. We did all kinds of activities. This type of organization obviously isn't for everybody but there literally ARE organizations for EVERYBODY! So find something you're interested in and make a few buddies. Go out to eat, get coffee with friends, try not to exclude yourself from groups.

    Food and Dining

    The dining halls seem to constantly be changing, but the food wasn't terrible my freshman year. It's not too hard to eat healthy, what with the fruits, vegetables, and salad bars. The snacks and fried foods are tempting but honestly I don't think they're even worth eating!

    Dorm Life

    DID NOT LIKE. Try to find friends that are involved/enjoy the same kinds of things you do. Don't go home every weekend. Try to make your dorm homey! Also don't forget that you only HAVE to live there one year.

    Academic Rigor

    I am an art student, and I can easily say that classes are definitely not easy. They challenge you and push you to try things you normally aren't comfortable with, and in the end it grows you into a better artist.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure your stay on top of your financial aid, and be aware of early registration deadlines! There's nothing worse than realizing you can't pay for school when it's too late, or finding out that all the classes you want/need are full.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas is a great liberal arts school for those who are perhaps a bit off-kilter. There are areas of study and organizations for every interest you may have. I do believe that I'm receiving a quality education (especially for the price!), and wouldn't trade my college career for anything.

    The dorm life is not that bad. I wouldn't recommend staying in Crumley because there is a community bathroom. It has its advantages as well as disadvantages. The advantage is you do not have to clean it yourself, but you have to leave your room and use a code just to use the bathroom.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be dilligent when it comes to your work in class. Start the way you want to finish. Stay away from the Student Union when there is a takeover, especially if you have class at that time.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas is a great school for networking. It is not that far from home for me, but far enough. A lot of great memories and opportunities are created at this university.

    What to do for fun

    At first there are a lot of activities on campus to meet people but after a while you're on your own to find things and get involved.

    Food and Dining

    Lots of variety between cafeterias, but after a while it gets redundant. Lots of access except for closing early on Fridays. Also, it's nice to have a option to eat at the Union instead of a cafeteria

    Dorm Life

    Good not much supervision. Security was ok but could be better. Quiet hours are taken way too seriously in some places.

    Academic Rigor

    Teachers don't make the classwork so difficult that no one can pass, but not so easy that everyone passes with flying colors. You have to work a little to get the grade you want, which is how I think college should be anyway.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that you have all of the necessary information needed to apply and get financial aid well before the deadline. Get involved and meet new people, it will change your entire college experience.

    In three sentences

    UNT is an extremely diverse university. There are many ways to get involved, like joining groups and organizations that fit your interests. UNT has a big and beautiful campus.

    We have a Beth Marie's ice cream shop on campus and in town square and they carry the most unusual flavors. GLAD puts on a drag fashion show once a semester which the entire student body loves.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is relatively cheap, maybe even under-priced. You will definitely get bang for your buck.

    What to do for fun

    My friends and I like to go to the parks, shopping, and wondering around the square.

    Food and Dining

    The dorms have cafeterias, and cafeteria food is gross. But there are a lot of fast food restaurants and the student union and student cafes are pretty good.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is amazing and the dorms themselves are beautiful. Each dorm has a different personality or character.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are pretty easy and the admission standards are very low.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't go home a lot. Spending too much time at home or with high school friends takes away from the college experience.

    In three sentences

    There is a large student population, which provides a great opportunity to meet diverse people and join diverse organizations. The campus is in a small town, with a great transportation system, just 40 minutes from Dallas and Fort Worth. Professors take the time to get to know you.

    On campus food was good but what's better are the places right around campus. Kat's Burgers, Central Grill, and there a drive-thru chinese food place across the street from these.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are better than some other colleges I've seen. I stayed in Maple and I loved it. The newer ones are nice but more expensive but overall great experience.

    The campus police are always around and super helpful. They have jumped my car several times when the battery died. They usually answer on the first few rings and are really quick to respond.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition seems expensive, but it's still the cheapest in the state. I have always felt like I'm getting my moneys worth.

    What to do for fun

    There is a lot to do in Denton. It's a very artsy type city. There are art galleries, movie theaters, shopping, an amazing water park that's pretty cheap, amazing food, and a million other things to see. It's really a wonderful city.

    Food and Dining

    Denton has amazing food and so many choices! The on campus food is actually pretty good, but the real treasures are found on Fry St and Downtown near the square.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in the dorms, but I looked at several before I started there and they are really nice. I have never heard complaints from anyone.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes can be really difficult and the work load can be insane, but there are also some really easy classes. It really depends on the teacher and their teaching style.

    Tips for prospective students

    Look up reviews for professors BEFORE you take their classes. Sometimes you can't help who you take a class with, but knowing a little bit about them beforehand always helps. Be open to meeting new people. Almost every one is really friendly, but keep in mind that they may be nervous or shy too, so it doesn't hurt to make the first move.

    In three sentences

    I have fallen in love with all things Denton and UNT. The campus is open and welcoming, and I can't help but feel at home there. The campus is really culturally diverse in every way.

    Campus Safety

    I'm a runner. I walk to most of my classes. I have run all over campus at different times during the day and never been bothered. The campus is very safe and the community is very friendly. Its always good to be cautious, but Ive seldom heard of any problems! UNT is almost like a mini Austin!

    Great for these types of students

    Art, Design, Music, Theater, any creative type!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    This is going to be my first year back, but I love the music scene the best. Walking through the campus and seeing bands play, whether its a local band, production, or jazz, was really cool. Football games and basketball games were also a lot of fun to attend!

    Bang for the buck

    Im coming back to UNT this year to finish up college because I feel like I've gotten more out of my college experience here. As far as my major, they are very thorough when covering the basics and I am always learning something new!

    What to do for fun

    Check out fry street! There's a great music scene happening almost every night! There are many art shows as well, so the art building is always interesting. There are awesome sculptures all around the campus, and lots of extra curricular activities to participate in! The rec center is incredible and there are lots of intramural teams to join!

    Food and Dining

    The food is great and there are tons of options available!

    Dorm Life

    Ive never lived in the dorms. I always lived in the apartments, which I prefer. However, I have visited the dorms and they seem very clean and have lots of friendly people living there.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are very informative and the professors are very engaging. They are always eager to help! They are constantly on their email and reply quickly if you have any homework problems and they are very attentive in class as well.

    What to do for fun

    There is no shortage of on campus activities through the semester. There are cookouts, intermueral sports, swim parties, finals parties, concerts and much more. Its hard not to find something to do during the school year.

    Food and Dining

    There are cafeterias located all over campus serving a wide variety of foods, sure to satisfy anyone's appetite.

    Dorm Life

    There are a number of dorms all giving different vibes and satisfaction for different personalities. be sure to do your research before selecting a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending of your feild of study your studies can be very time consuming. It will take time and effort in order to succed at UNT.

    Tips for prospective students

    Look for all the financial aid possible and as early as possible. There are many scholarship oppoutrunities available through the school but they go very quickly due to the amount of students enrolled. Make sure also to get involved in on campus life such as student government, work study, greek life and numerous on campus events year round.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas in Denton is a very diverse campus and is full of extra curricular oppourtunities. The enviornment sarrounding the campus is very lively, with many things to do when your not studying. Although tuition continues to rise I believe this is a top notch choice as far as schools in the state of texas.

    Campus Safety

    There are always police cars patrolling the campus. There are portable stations where you can just push a button and a cop car will show up as soon as possible. Every building requires a student ID to use its facilities and a fine is issued if you cannot relinquish your ID when asked to. Oh, and there's a police station right across the street from campus. The campus also constantly provides tips to students about safety through emails. (like walking in groups of five when at night)

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is prevalent on campus. There's step shows, initiations, etc that take place for everyone to see. We have a whole strip of fraternity and sorority houses on the outskirts of campus where the brothers and sisters can live. There's also, of course, honor societies that are affiliated with the Greek so there's many ways to participate in those type of organizations.

    Clubs and Activities

    Anything from step shows, barbecues, poetry slams, concerts, softball/tennis games, there's literally so much to do here! Like I stated earlier, there's so many clubs; just pick one or make one up!

    Great for these types of students

    Any type of student will find something that attracts them to the campus; it's very diverse in terms of things to do. Where the quirkiest, nerdiest, and most athletic inhabit peacefully.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Well, after every game, win or lose, we sing the UNT song showing pride to our Eagles for just playing. Also, we have a library mall which is basically an open space in the center of the campus where concerts, step shows, and gatherings (where free stuff is given out) happen!

    Bang for the buck

    I think UNT is worth what it costs but it's so easy to slip into debt or find yourself taking out more student loans than you intended. You have to keep an eagle eye out with the financial aid office.

    What to do for fun

    Like I said previously, there's always something to do on campus. From magic shows and stand up comics to basketball and football games, there's always something to do. There's everything you can think of to do here. Have a group idea you dying to share with the world? Make up a group of your own, get it approved by the president, and make it official.

    Food and Dining

    I have a duplicitous attitude about this. Having a meal plan, meaning having 3 meals [breakfast, lunch, and dinner] guaranteed at all times is very convenient. However, it costs a pretty penny and sometimes just having microwaveable dinners is cheaper. Do what makes you happy, but the food UNT provides is delicious.

    Dorm Life

    There's always more than a few people who still have a child's mentality and will be inconsiderate regardless of others. But having a dorm will definitely teach you patience, sharing, and even more respect. Just remember, it's what you make it and people will take advantage of you if you let them.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are, of course, more rigorous than at a community college or junior college. But with anything you put your mind to, study hard for, and pray about, it's doable.

    Tips for prospective students

    I always say, if you're having too much fun, you're not making good grades; if you have excellent grades, you aren't having a lot of fun. Take that for what it's worth and find a happy medium.

    In three sentences

    UNT, like most colleges, is what you make it. There's literally always something going on or something to do on campus that will interest even the most seclusive student. Oh, and a lot of goodies are included in your tuition, so when that basketball game, football game, or John Legend concert rolls around, it's all free!

    Campus Safety

    We get the occasional email about a theft or a robbery, but it's usually only once a semester. Denton is pretty safe and the UNT police do a good job of making sure no mayhem ensues during events.

    Greek Life

    Lots of greeks and lots of greek activity. I'm not involved, but they seem nice.

    Clubs and Activities

    Student Gov't is huge here, as are service organizations and music events. There is never nothing going on. And sometimes there's free food!

    Great for these types of students

    Fine arts: music, art, dance. Also liberal arts and business students. Expect weird people and lots of hipsters. But I have never met a Denton-ite I didn't like, honest uncle.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The school mascot is an eagle, so on the rare occasion the football team scores (although it's getting better), we all form claws with our hands and hold them up. Also, there's a lot of caw-ing. It's weird.

    Bang for the buck

    SO MUCH BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! This school is Texas' best kept secret! 4 academically rigorous years at a cheap(er) state school with a massive alum base to hire you after graduation? We are so lucky to go here!

    What to do for fun

    The Square (our downton) is a nice walk from campus and there's tons of little shops and restaurants or bars to explore. Or you could sprawl out on the big lawn in front of the courthouse and study or read or play frisbee or whatever you feel like. There always seems to be some sort of protest or demonstration going on, and those are always pretty entertaining. And even though UNT is by no means a party school, somebody somewhere will have a house party on a weekend. For those who are 21+, Fry Street houses our array of local watering holes! The mall has a $2 movie theater and it's on a bus route so people without cars can get there on weekdays. And because it's Denton, someone always has a gig. On any given night you can find somebody making music. Go to those.

    Food and Dining

    Avoid at all costs. As a freshman you're pretty much required to have a meal plan; stick to the salad bar. Seriously. Make friends with someone who has a car and get them to take you grocery shopping so you can stock up on oreos and pb&j, because campus food is not something you should ever put in your body. Also, try to avoid the Freshman 15.

    Dorm Life

    Every dorm has its own personality! The majority of your friends when you move to a new place come from where you live, and UNT is no exception. It sounds cliche, but there really is a place for absolutely everybody to fit in here.

    Academic Rigor

    The UNT College of Music is like boot camp for musicians. If you think you're good enough, you're wrong. Ray Charles isn't good enough for the UNT CoM. But you make your bed and lie in it, and when you graduate you have a tight group of friends and an alum base that will hire you anywhere you want to be. UNT has one of the highest post-grad employment rates in the country because we push our students so hard there's just no way you don't come out great at what you do. But don't expect to sleep much. Sleep is for slackers and bums.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get a bicycle! Denton is an adorable town and almost everything you need is a bike ride away. Fall and spring are particularly beautiful, so invest in a good pair of flip flops and a frisbee.

    Campus Safety is really important at UNT. Between 9 PM and 2 AM you can call E-Ride to take you or pick you up from anywhere on campus for free. Also you can call for a police escort at any time.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are way too many clubs to name but if you are looking for a club to join but can't find one, you can go to Student Affairs ( one of the many free services) and they will help you find a club that's perfect for you! If you don't find that perfect club, it's super easy to make a club!

    UNT is great for ALL students. You can find everything at UNT, but our world renowned music program pulls many students to UNT. Despite UNT is known for music, you'll find a lot of art, fashion merchandising and biology majors. That just shows how diverse UNT is.

    Every April there is a 12 hour concert in one of the dorms (Bruce Hall) called Bruce Jam. This concert is open to everyone and features student bands. Bruce Hall also host a haunted house every October/

    Bang for the buck

    UNT gies a big bang for its buck! It's a state school and uses the these funds to keep tuition lower than most Universities like it. The tuition pays for a lot of services that are open to all students, such as the Learning Center for extra help on classwork, Student Affairs, media checkouts( Wii's, XBox, DVDs and games), and many more. There are services for every type of situation that you may be in.

    What to do for fun

    Denton is the ultimate college town because of the 2 universities that call it home. Almost everywhere you go there are deals and discounts for students. Denton has everything you would need and want, a downtown square, shopping district, and a lively music scene. If Denton doesn't satisfy you needs, it's just short drive to Dallas, TX, where there's always something to do for everyone.

    Food and Dining

    There are 5 dining halls on campus, which provides you with many options for food. There is even a vegan dining hall with delicious food, even if you aren't a vegan. In addition to the dining hall, there's also a campus chat in out student union which had retail dining options, such as Chick-fil-A and Taco Bell.

    Dorm Life

    With 13 dorms on campus, each with a different atmosphere, there is bound to be a dorm that's perfect for you! There are tradition dorms with community baths and some with suite style baths. Each dorm puts on different events multiple times a week. If you're lucky, you'll get a dorm with a dining hall for easy food access.

    Academic Rigor

    Like any University, that academic rigor depends on the student. If you're a highly motivated student, then you will succeed anywhere you go. UNT provides many opportunities to better yourself and make great grades! Make sure you utilize the Learning Center, which will provide you will everything you need to excel academically! (at no cost to you!)

    What to do for fun

    Like I said earlier there are a ton of organizations that get you involved and you have a lot of fun but one thing that I really like about UNT is that they try to get everyone together for like swimming bashes, christmas parties, etc.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good food but it doesn't compare to home cooked meals. Sometimes it gets old eating the same thing every week but you can always splurge and go out and eat.

    Dorm Life

    In my opinion dorm life is a great way to meet new people but if you like having space I would definitely try to find an apartment. Dorm life is fun and you have to have a meal plan with almost all of the dorms you stay in.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics of students really depend on your major. I can tell you that I am a business major and you have to keep on top of all of your work to get where you need to go with this degree. Teachers are fairly lenient but they expect you to be responsible.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid that you are not going to fit in, UNT has over 100 organizations that you can get involved with and meet new people who are just like you.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor is high. UNT professors make the students think out side the box and approach problems in different ways. They make the students look at all the viewpoints and think creatively in order to develop a good solution to problems.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involve in organizations, they really help you have the complete college experience and keeps you interested in college. Go to the SI sessions (if they are offer for that particular class), they help you study the things you will actually need for tests. Also, go to your professor office hours; get to know your professor, it might come in handy if you ever need an extension on an assignment.

    Campus Safety

    There have been some minor mishaps on campus, but whenever something like this happens the campus steps up its security ensuring nothing else goes wrong.

    What to do for fun

    There are plenty of different organizations a student can join in order to keep himself entertained, but if none feel right to him then he can always go to different places such as Denton square to pass time, or he can stay on campus because there are many different events that happen on a daily basis.

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of cafeterias to go to which is convenient during the weekdays, but on the weekends most of them are closed. This would not be a problem if I was living in a dorm on campus, but I live across the highway from the only cafeteria that remains open on the weekdays.

    Dorm Life

    Most of the people in my dorm are friendly, so I have not had many problems in that aspect. The resident assistants are understanding and always capable of fixing any problem when one arises.

    Academic Rigor

    The tests in most of my classes have challenged me more than I have ever been before, and I almost always feel like I have learned something new when I leave the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to take advantage of the tutoring provided for you, and pay close attention in class so you at least have an idea of what you need to get further instruction on.

    In three sentences

    The campus is very well-maintained, beautiful, and easy to navigate. The professors are extremely accommodating and ensure that you are able to learn as efficiently as possible. Students are given easy access to a variety of different tools which aid them in their learning.

    Campus Safety

    There are many security police and I feel very safe in my dorm room. UNT has established enough rules for the dorms and well lit streets to keep me feeling safe.

    Greek Life

    I have enjoyed being part of UNT's Greek life. The week of rush was exciting and I have already made many lifelong friends

    Clubs and Activities

    Greek life at UNT is very rewarding.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is great for someone who has plenty of money and can afford the higher costs of education. If one is looking for a good education on a budget, I would recommend the local community college.

    Bang for the buck

    I do not think UNT is a great bang for the buck because of the overpriced dorm rooms and educational curriculum. I am paying more to attend UNT than some of my friends who are attending more recognized state schools.

    What to do for fun

    There are many social activities and sporting events. The cost of sporting events is added into the overall cost and is therefore free for students.

    Food and Dining

    There are lots of facilities to choose from but most of the food is not nutritional and lacks in flavor. UNT needs to reinvest in their culinary department so that they may provide students with healthier, tastier choices.

    Dorm Life

    UNT's dorm life is very disappointing. The rooms are very dingy looking and overpriced. The room mate matching service, although recommended by UNT, is not used properly. The day before my move in the university assigned an additional roommate to my two person room. I eventually purchased another room but it cost me almost $200 dollars a month more.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are somewhat difficult as the lectures have very little to do with what I am tested on during the week. I have had to adjust my schedule to include more time for studying my text books after each class so I do not get behind on my test preparation.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students who want to go to the University of North Texas need to really compare school costs and available scholarships. When I went back and examined the cost of room and board, I believe I am overpaying.

    In three sentences

    Unfortunately the University of North Texas has been a slight disappointment. My main concern are the excessive fees for overpriced materials and boarding fees. I am paying as much for my education as those students attending better state institutions.

    Campus Safety

    Safety is a primary issue for UNT. Campus police are on constant alert and always looking to make the campus just a little safer for students and faculty. Eagle alerts are sent to student warning them of criminal activity, so they can be prepared and up to date on information.

    Clubs and Activities

    Many clubs and organizations are available to students looking for a place to fit in.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is great for students looking to do research in forensics and the sciences. The biology and chemistry departments offer great professors.

    Bang for the buck

    While it may cost a little more than previous years, the money in your tuition actually covers a lot of student fees that free up everyday necessities like printing, lab services, busing.

    What to do for fun

    On campus activities are never not in session. There are movie days, free lunches, and sorority and fraternity organized events to raise money for charity.

    Food and Dining

    The university offers a full vegan cafeteria and on campus dining services. Many of the food choices are diverse and there is not something you cannot eat.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms are probably the main place to make long-lasting friends. There is not a time when you will feel alone.

    Academic Rigor

    The University of North Texas strives for excellence in education. Many of the programs here will test you in unexpected ways.

    Tips for prospective students

    There are many clubs and organizations to help facilitate a community feeling and transition you from a high school student to a full fledged college student.

    The police are everywhere, which makes me feel very safe. Plus we have emergency poles that are pretty much anywhere you turn. As the campus continues to grow, the number of poles increase.

    Jupiter House is a coffee shop in the Denton' square, which is in walking distance from UNT. Not only is the square a truly amazing place to enjoy, but Jupiter House is a great locally owned coffee shop that encourages art students work to be displayed, musicians play there, and provide a quiet study place.

    Bang for the buck

    Professors really want to help you succeed. I haven't had a professor that didn't take the time to really make sure and explain the way classes work, tests are taken, and they hold you to high expectations, pushing you to do your best.

    What to do for fun

    There's concerts going on all the time on campus, at nearby coffee shops and bars, plus Dallas and Ft. Worth are only a 40 minutes drive away who host larger scale concerts. UNT has great school spirit and a beautiful new stadium to watch football in. Also, the campus has tons of places to just hang out on the lawn or you can work out in the recreation center to burn off some steam.

    The dorm cafeterias are awesome and nearby Fry Street contains great local food restaurants that are unique and delicious.

    Campus Safety

    There have been a few instances where students have been harmed very late at night, but if you're indoors during the middle of the night, there is nothing to worry about. There are also UNT officers who drive around campus 24/7, and there are these alert systems throughout the campus where you can immediately talk to an officer if you're being harmed somewhere on campus.

    Greek Life

    Very expensive, and strict in my opinion.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are over 400 different clubs throughout the campus, and activites are happening daily.

    Every time the football team wins a game, the clock tower on campus lights up green. The main location on campus I would have to say is the union, just because that's where the book store is where you can buy mean green wear, there are different places to eat there, and there is a big lounge area to hang out at.

    Bang for the buck

    College is very expensive, but there are always events happening where free food, coupons and even t-shirts handed out.

    What to do for fun

    There are many restuarants around the city. There are always movies being shown on campus. Each dormitory has an activity going on every night, and bigger activites over weekends. And sport fuctions are exciting to attend.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty good, just eating the same type of food every day gets old after a while. But there are different cafeterias on campus to give you a variety, and there are a couple cafes located in the school's union.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is great if you are very social. The only down side is there are never quiet moments. I tend to not ever have time doing the dormitory activities because I'm either doing homework, catching up on sleep, or working.

    Campus Safety

    Lately there has been a lot of crime around campus. Being a freshman, I don't know if it's always like this or not.

    Bang for the buck

    This kind of depends. You have to pay for certain things like the REC Center and Library even if you might never use them. Other than that, it's a cheap school considering what all you are learning!

    What to do for fun

    If you look around, there is usually something to do every day. I'm more of a hermit and keep to my room, but I hear about a lot of different things. Andy Grammar even did a concert here the other week! Most things are free too!

    Food and Dining

    Overall, the food is good. Sometimes, they either can't get the alfredo sauce right or the bacon tastes super burnt. But otherwise I love the food. We even have a vegan cafeteria!

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are so much fun. I live in Clark and I don't regret my decision. The top three dorms in my opinion are Clark, Kerr, and Bruce. Clark has an atmosphere like we are all a family. There's always activities to get involved with and it's just a ton of fun. Kerr is nice because it has a cafeteria but I heard it's really loud so if you need to study, you spend most of your time away from your dorm. Bruce is nice because it's where most of the music majors are located so you'll always hear either someone singing or playing an instrument. Also, Bruce has a cafeteria, but the choices are small and there's not many places to sit.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are nice because they will challenge you to where you'll learn the material, but it's not too bad where all you do is stress. If you are looking at having a job, I would take about 15 hours worth of classes and no more so you can handle a job as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are a music major or a psychology major, this is definitely the school for you and if you are questioning other schools, just stop. It has everything you need to succeed. Regardless of your major, live in a REAL Community in the dorms because they give you opportunities to get your name out there which will help you in the future.

    In three sentences

    The atmosphere is wonderful. The classes are challenging, but not too stressful. The food is alright.

    Campus Safety

    Never walk alone when it is dark outside. If you are worried about walking alone, especially if you have a late class, you can either call the campus police ahead of time so when your class is over you don't have to wait. Or you can call a friend.

    Greek Life

    I am not in a sorority, but from what I've seen is they do a lot of community service and many other activities to raise money. I saw a fraternity set up a booth for smashing pumpkins if you donated to a organization.

    Clubs and Activities

    For my freshman year, I am still learning about all the many organizations and clubs. My favorite that I have learned so far is a club called the Talons. The get to set off Boomer the Canon at football games and they are the only ones that get to camp out overnight and build our massive bonfire for Homecoming.

    Great for these types of students

    For those who enjoy studying or just being outside, UNT has provided these swing benches all around campus, so if you are early for a class and wouldn't mind sitting and reading for the next class, etc, then you should relax on our swing benches.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Traditions at UNT is on game day we paint our clock tower Green so at night the clock is glowing green. Also we wear green on Friday's for Spirit Day. Our cry on game days is CAW and you hold up your claw sign which is your pointer and middle finger and thumb in a claw sign.

    Bang for the buck

    You can find a ton of coupons for many of the restaurants on and around campus. With your meal plan you'll be able to save a lot of money that you can spend on food, or even luxury books in our bookstore for those who like to read.

    What to do for fun

    For fun I like to go to the Rec Center and workout, I watch movies out in the lobby of my residence hall, play ping pong, and nap.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is pretty decent. Watch out for Kerr Hall though. If you are a vegan then Maple Hall is the place to go. Bruce Hall is personally my favorite because they have anything from home-cook meals to pizza, to people making your sandwich in front of you. Kerr Hall makes their own ice cream (watch out, it's addicting) and t is delicious.

    Dorm Life

    No CURFEWS! I love the dorm life. I was nervous as a incoming freshman because I didn't know what it would be like having a total stranger as my roommate.Turns out she is really great! If you happen to get a weird/ obnoxious/ creepy roommate no worries, just talk to your RA (Room Assistant) and they'll take care of some new arrangement. The only problem I have living in the dorm is how paper thin the walls are. You can hear everything out in the halls, the floor above you, or people walking out in the hallway.

    Academic Rigor

    My average here is a B+. the classes here are challenging but hey, that's college. Just keep up your studying skills and don't procrastinate and you'll do fine. The professors will work with you.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips to you is to attend class, take advantage of naps, using up that meal plan, and using the POHL Rec Center.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a very fun and exciting university. The atmosphere here at UNT is VERY energetic whether it is a recreational sport, a ping pong tournament or on game day. I love being part of Mean Green!!

    Campus Safety

    There are police officers that patrol campus from time to time, and several emergency call stations are located around, but it is best to stay where the people are, especially at night, because there are occasionally reports of thievery and other things here and there.

    Bang for the buck

    I think I am definitely getting my money's worth; I transferred from a college where I had to pay about $10,000 per semester (as opposed to UNT's $9,000 per YEAR), and I have to say that I definitely enjoy classes, campus life, and just about everything else a LOT better, especially for much cheaper prices all around.

    What to do for fun

    There are many local coffee shops and bars. Lots of great restaurants with Denton-authentic food and environments. Even simply walking around Denton Square and other parts of Denton is pretty exciting and interesting; lots of neat things to see.

    Food and Dining

    The prices are way cheap and it's good quality for what you pay. There are lots of options to choose from, and campus is somewhat small so off-campus restaurants are fairly easy to get to (and there are some GREAT options to choose from).

    Dorm Life

    I don't actually live in the dorms or anywhere on campus, but the students that do live here seem to enjoy it pretty well, and everything is really easy to get to, even just by walking.

    Classes are pretty easy to keep up with as long as you actually go to class; the professors are great and teach quality material, keeping the workload pretty reasonable.

Dallas is only about 15 minute drive.

    The best advice I can give a prospective student is to ask questions. Everyone on UNT campus is more than willing to help. The other thing you must do is your research, regardless of the school you are looking at research thoroughly. This will also help to figure out what questions you should ask.

    Anything and everything under the sun. There are many intramural sports to get involved with on campus. For the age-appropriate folks, there are a lot of cool bars and food joints on Fry St. - located right next to campus.

    What to do for fun

    The Student Rec Center is fun, you can take a friend and workout together. There is a Media Library in Chilton Hall where you can check out movies, video games, and more for up to 3 days. There are other places around Denton too where you can hang out, it just depends on what you're interested in.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeterias are definitely no five star restaurants, but they are still pretty descent. There are about 5 cafeterias on campus, all which you have unlimited access to, depending on your meal plan. All offer different varieties of food, so if you don't like what they are serving in one cafeteria it's no problem, you just have to go to another cafeteria. One cafeteria even stays open until 2 a.m.

    Dorm Life

    I expected it to be a lot more fun and to have a better community. I suggest living off campus, the dorms are way to expensive anyway.

    Academic Rigor

    I'd say the academic rigor is pretty tough, but very do-able.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you are okay with the idea of walking a LOT, there are also many hills on campus that you'll be walking up and down to get from building to building. Campus is so big, I suggest you bring a bike. Also be prepared for the ghost town weekends in Denton. A lot of students go home for the weekend and leave Denton looking like a ghost town.

    The Mean Green Fling happens to kick off every year and there's a lot of free food, pens, highlighters, sunglasses, tank tops, t shirts, even little goodies like portable tool kits and banners. You get to interact with other students as well.

    Bang for the buck

    Stores are within walking distance, UNT offers a LOT of free things like shirts, meals, ice cream, energy drinks, and the Mean Green Fling is a lot of fun. Also, the rec center is amazing. Denton square is only a bus ride away and there are a lot of small shops like vintage/thrift stores, a comic book store, atomic candy, and a record shop.

    What to do for fun

    Join organizations, hang out in your hall's lobby, have movie nights with friends. You can even take the bus and explore Denton. A lot of stores are within walking distance.

    Campus Safety

    Denton is a quiet college town, and I've never felt anything less than safe whilst walking long distances to enjoy its thriving night-life.

    Greek Life

    UNT has a healthy Greek life, with a full fraternity row and sorority row, the members of which can often be seen on campus tabling for new recruits and raising funds.

    Clubs and Activities

    The Denton chapter of the International Socialist Organization (ISO), the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance (FMLA), the Gay and Lesbian Alliance of Denton (GLAD), Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), as well as many other organizations, provide a variety of opportunities for many different kinds of students to feel included and get involved.

    Great for these types of students

    Those students who appreciate a population of diverse political views, nationalities, races, religions, sexual orientations, as well as those students who appreciate a strong art community would do well at UNT.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The annual UNT production of the Vagina Monologues and the associated V-Day fundraising effort for local and international women's organizations is particularly popular, well renowned, and effective at raising money and awareness.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT has a large working-class student population and for good reason. It actually faces a budget deficit because the quality of services offered is so high compared to the relatively low prices of housing and tuition.

    What to do for fun

    UNT puts on a number of excellent musical performances, features many special guest lecturers, produces some notable plays, and screens several fine films a year, and many residential events (pajama parties, a haunted house in October) provide an array of fun times. It also has a brand new football stadium which is very admirable.

    Food and Dining

    UNT is generous enough to provide five cafeterias, one of which is 100% vegan, one of which specializes in fried comfort foods, and others which, together, represent almost every palate.

    Dorm Life

    There is a great deal of diversity amongst the dorms in terms of style and level of involvement. There's something for those who are quietly studious, those who are full of school spirit, those who love social interaction, and more.

    Academic Rigor

    The difficulty curve is great for the average student. I have found that hard work earns an A, and that only a complete lack of effort or really unfortunate circumstances could earn a failing grade. The average student putting in average effort would probably earn a B.

    Tips for prospective students

    If prospective students were to take a tour of our quaint campus, they would get a good idea of what UNT has to offer for their unique interests and talents. That's all that it takes!

    In three sentences

    UNT makes the college experience very easy. The teaching staff, in general, is very accommodating of diverse needs and talents, and the other services (dining, housing, transportation, and extracurricular events like plays and musical performances) are all affordable and accessible. It all comes at a relatively low price, as well.

    Campus Safety

    There is not a whole lot of crime on our campus. When there is crime, they send out crime alert with a report of the incident as well as tips for staying safe. Our university police are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet who really care for the students. Our university has never had an active shooter nor have they received any bomb threats at this point in time.

    Greek Life

    I don't know much about greek life past my business fraternity. But, I do have many friends who are apart of one of the many sororities and fraternities and they absolutely love it.

    Clubs and Activities

    UNT has over 400 registered organizations. If you have an a hobby or an interest, there is probably an organization for you. If not, you only need 6 people to start up your own!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One of the strangest traditions on campus is that of the albino squirrel. When you attend orientation as a freshman, they tell you all about the albino squirrel. The myth is that if you see the albino squirrel, you are going to have good luck!

    Bang for the buck

    UNT probably has one of the cheapest tuition in Texas. The reason for this being our generous alumni. We have so many donors which provide many students with scholarships and grants.

    What to do for fun

    Denton is a very vintage town. One of the main attractions is the square, which has all kinds of food a fun. There is an old candy store, thrift shops, a comic book shop, amongst other things.

    Food and Dining

    If you live in the Residence Halls, there are five dining halls on campus, one of which is an all vegan cafeteria. There are a couple of restaurants on campus, such as Chick Fil A and Taco Bell as well as surrounding the campus. UNT has some of its own snack shops, my favorite being the Khush Roti, which is a sandwich shop located right behind the General Academic Building.

    Dorm Life

    As a Resident Assistant working in the Housing department, I have first hand experience with the care of residents at UNT. Dorm Life is exciting, as there are always programs happening, but the RA's also work hard at each hall to keep everyone excited and doing well in school. Each hall really has a big community, family feel.

    Academic Rigor

    Many of the classes you will take here at UNT require a lot hard work. But most of the professor's just want to engage you in whatever subject it is that they are teaching. Participation goes a long way.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not let opportunity pass you by! This university has a plethora of organizations, scholarships, and assistance to help make your college journey as smooth as possible. Take advantage of it all!

    Campus Safety

    We've had a few instances where people were attacked, but that was in alleys and stuff where you really shouldn't be walking around at night anyway. Overall, I feel really safe at UNT.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is great for those of us that are a little more eccentric or artistic. It's a great environment to let your imagination run wild.

    Bang for the buck

    The classes are pretty good as far as classes can get. All of the ones that I have taken are thought provoking and even a little entertaining.

    What to do for fun

    Some of the movie theaters offer discounted tickets on certain days for UNT students. There's also a lot of programs that are put on in the Union called the One o'clock Lounge, which is great and a lot of fun. Once they had dancers and musicians from Africa and it was a really cool thing to get to see. There's a whole lot to do in Denton and on campus, you just have to know where to find it.

    Food and Dining

    The food in Bruce Hall is the best on campus (don't go to Kerr, it's awful there). You can also get a meal plan where you have something called flex dollars loaded onto your ID that can be used for any of the restaurants on campus. There's also a lot of restaurants around UNT and in Denton in general, so there's a lot of variety to chose from.

    Dorm Life

    I'm living in Bruce Hall this year and the price of the dorm is fairly reasonable. The food is great in this dining hall and Bruce offers a lot of activities to get you involved. The only complaint I have about Bruce is the showers, but I think it's basically like that everywhere.

    Academic Rigor

    UNT's classes are fairly difficult but it's not too bad, since you can tell that the professors really care about what they're teaching.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get your financial aid info sent in on time; they're pretty generous with their funds. Also, take advantage of all free opportunities, like tutoring or entertainment or even free food in the Union.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a beautiful campus, and everyone in Denton are really friendly and happy to help you if you get lost easily (like I do).

The teachers are also always willing to help you in class if you need it.

    Campus Safety

    It's pretty safe, I mean we have our own police station and security posts throughout the campus. There are carts and guides that take you throughout campus if needed at night (they have numbers to contact them with), buses are everywhere, and security is always around really. I've been out pretty late and nothing has ever happened to me or anyone I know, so you'll be fine as long as you don't go looking for trouble.

    Greek Life

    While I am personally not part of greek life, it is very common and pretty much part of UNT. There are a lot of partys involved around them and typically have events as well as their own organizations, but they're pretty cool and great people to hang around. Dedication is required and being part of a greek is more than just being in a club or something, it is almost a lifestyle really.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a whole bunch of clubs in UNT, and if you can't find a specific one, you are free to create your own really. A few examples of created groups are... - Feminist Club - LGBT SGA and Anon. Help Center - UNT Libertarian Club - D&D and Classical Gamers

    Great for these types of students

    - Music Students - Geeks - LGBT - Liberal Minded - Art Students

    1. Campus Bondfire 2. Bruce's Haunted House 3. Zombie Survival Night 4. Geeked out Week 5. Drag Show and Race 6. Band Night 7. Hall Dance Competiton (Yell Like Hell)

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is a pretty cheap school and provides a great education for that price. Tuition is usually about $15k to $18k (depends on your hours, classes, meal plans, hall, etc.), and the place is pretty great. I had plans to transfer, but I am pretty convinced this place is the best bet.

    What to do for fun

    The community is everything here, and if you can think of it, you can find it. Bruce and Clarke are known for its geek culture (D&D, card games, video games, etc.), Maple is the vegan and vegitarian hangout, greek life is radiant no matter where you go, contest and events are weekly, concerts from local bands and our own bands are very common, etc. All you have to really do is look for it.

    Food and Dining

    The food is alright, not the best meals I have had, but it's school food (don't expect too much). Bruce and some other halls casually host events and special meal nights, so you might be surprised when you stumble across themed food or different meals from other cultures (Ex. we just had Eastern food the other month).

    Dorm Life

    I live in Bruce Hall and the dorm life is pretty cool actually. I am friends with most, if not everyone in the hall and my roommate and I are actually really cool with one another (we hang out pretty much all day). Every hall has it's down community and you are free to be as involved as you want to be, so go for it.

    Academic Rigor

    If you try you will pass with pretty much an A or high B. I made the error of slacking off quite a bit and ended up with a 2.8 GPA for my first semester, but that is entirely my fault. There are tutor and opportunities everywhere really.

    Tips for prospective students

    UNT is a very community based school and tends to be very social. You are bound to meet new people and quickly make friends, but that is only if you want to. You are as dedicated and as social as you want to be, nothing just comes to you here or in any college really.

    In three sentences

    Don't be afraid to meet new people but try not to have too much fun. Stick to the books.

Make sure to go to rate my professor before you take a class to know what you're going to get. But classes are easy if you show up and do the work.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are an art student, or music school you will fit right in. If your a sports nut like me and want a party school, UNT is not it, but you can still have fun here if you go out and look for it. There are a bunch of students that do commute from the DFW area to school, or go home for the weekends.

    UNT is a good basic school, I am a transfer student form out of state and can clearly see that the Texas education system needs some improvement.

    Campus Safety

    The campus has police officers patrolling throughout the day. There has been only one serious incident on the campus recently, but in certain areas nearby there is known to be crime. If you feel unsafe travelling around UNT, there are numbers you can call to have someone assist you.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is only 4% of the student population but it does exist and they don't tend to have bad reputations for partying (leave that to the art kids).

    Clubs and Activities

    There are clubs on campus for every type of student. There are sports clubs, academic clubs, music clubs, social clubs (like GLAAD), and clubs that make an effort to change the world (RAGE, FMLA, NORML). There's even a Sci Fi club. Any type of person can find their niche at UNT. The general student population is very accepting of other people and it is a very positive environment. Most people tend to be liberal, but even the most conservative will be respected if they effectively express their opinions.

    Great for these types of students

    If you're a student who loves the arts and loves school, you will love UNT. I don't think i realized quite how much I loved being in school until I attended UNT, and now I'll graduate kicking and screaming because I won't want to join the real world and leave the college bubble.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I'm not quite sure of any traditions, but there are some very cool buildings on campus. For example, the Business Leadership Building is spectacular and has many great places to study. There is a rooftop terrace on the faculty floor and another on the second floor that's more easily accessible to students. Some of the buildings have some quirks with stairs, I have no idea why. For instance, the language building has 3 floors and 2 staircases. One staircase connects the first and second floors, and the other connects the second and third. So if you wanted to go from the first floor to the third, you'd have to go up the first staircase, circle the building, then go up the other staircase. It's stupid.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is one of the most affordable instituions in Texas and they are very proud of it (and they should be). You will be getting more than your money's worth here. The school has an effective public transportation system on not only the campus itself but the surrounding Denton area. UNT is getting more selective by the year, and your degree from UNT will be even more valuable as time goes on as its good reputation grows.

    What to do for fun

    Denton is a small town but there is quite a bit to do if you know people or where to go. Movies are relatively inexpensive and there's bowling for a dollar out there somewhere. UNT has many clubs to choose from and they often throw events either at UNT or elsewhere in Denton (for example, the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance puts on the Vagina Monologues annually). A club on campus does screenings of recent Hollywood movies for free, and the media library in Chilton Hall has almost every movie you could imagine available to check out. Denton's town square is adorable and has independent stores, restaurants, bars, and clubs to visit. It's very cool to see an area like it without a major retail establishment. Really, finding fun at UNT isn't too hard if you get yourself out there. It may be a college town but the music and art programs have a strong foothold in the community that makes it never boring.

    Food and Dining

    Your dining experience will depend on which dining hall you decide to eat in. For example, if you decide to go to Kerr, expect to throw the majority of your food away, as it will be either colder than it should be, or dripping in grease. Bruce has the most variety and is usually pretty okay, which makes it the most popular dining hall. If you're a vegan, Maple Hall has all vegan options, and the food only tastes vegan on occasion. I preferred Maple over any other hall as it was usually not very crowded and the jazz music constantly playing gives it a very cool atmosphere. There are also several restaurants on campus. There is a Chick Fil A and a Taco Bell, and a few others unique to the school. I've been adventurous and have tried the majority of them, and I have to say they get a thumbs up (Khush Roti has some awesome sandwiches).

    Dorm Life

    I moved out of the dorms after my first semester because I personally did not like living in them. The buildings were always clean and the desk staff was helpful, but thin walls and my preference for peace and quiet kept me from feeling right at home (it was particularly my suitemate Rachel who bothered me, she sounded like a whiny Meg Griffin and it annoyed me immensely). The dorm I lived in (Maple) had plenty of storage for my things. That was surprising because I brought the majority of my closet and shoes and I'm a bit of a clothing hoarder. All in all, the dorm experience wasn't too terrible. The only thing that really got to me was when I tried to get a room change after my roommate went on a rampage with my belongings. I live in the dorm that houses Emerald Eagle Scholars, and after speaking to the housing advisor I found myself to be incredibly disappointed with her ability to help me out. She didn't offer any clear solutions and made excuses for my roommate's childish behavior saying she could have been potentially abused (EE scholars are chosen by both need and merit). As a former abuse victim, I found this statement to be ridiculous because by the time a student is living in a dorm, (s)he is accountable for his/her own actions and it is no longer a reflection on upbringing. My roommate's actions reflected upon herself and how she chose to direct her emotions, so I found the housing advisor's words to be ludicrous since she essentially refused to do anything to help me get out of the tense situation that I was living in right after I had moved out of another (my childhood home).

    Academic Rigor

    I'm still in introductory classes (and the majority of them aren't too challenging). Classes will get more difficult as you progress with your degree. The only class that I've needed help in is a foreign language, and my professor is very adamant about having students go to her office hours and get help. The majority of the professors I've had seem very happy to teach and want to see the best out of their students. Even if you are in easier classes, your professors will be very impressed if you go above and beyond and speak with them, and if that isn't enough for you, the university has a plethora of academic help available to you. There is no reason to not succeed at UNT as a student other than pure laziness.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply to the honors college if you can. Having priority registration is very important for more competitive majors. Take advantage of all of the resources given to you, they are plentiful and will help you succeed as a student.

    In three sentences

    The facilities at the school are up to date. The professors are excellent and are passionate about helping you. The university and the town it's located in has a unique, relaxed atmosphere.

    Campus Safety

    Although UNT has its events: petty robbery, public intoxication, and fights, it is still a very safe campus. Emergency phone booths are located everywhere around campus, making it easy for a quick jog to safety. The alert system that UNT has with real time notifications of storms, robberies, and fires are very useful as well.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life at UNT is only 3%. This is not very big at all but Greek Life still makes its face on campus known! IFC, MGC, NPHC, and PHC all work together to make the best out of what Greek Life has become at UNT. Greek Row consists of 8 IFC fraternity houses and 7 Panhellenic Sorority houses that make UNT look beautiful from a stand back view. On any given day you will find a fraternity or sorority raising money for a charity, putting on a new event, or recruiting out in the Library Mall located in the middle of UNT. Greek Life is such an important part of the campus because of its major contributions to GPA, social events, and campus friendly philanthropy.

    Clubs and Activities

    With over 350 organizations campus-wide there is surely something you can hop into. From the rugby clubs, to the service fraternities, to the music clubs, to the running clubs, there is no way someone cant find at least one organization they would like to be in.

    Great for these types of students

    Hometown students. Small Campus lovers. Looking for diversity. Focused Students. Music Lovers.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    UNT is great on traditions like the Mean Green Victory march after winning football games., our Alma Mater chant at Football games. Fraternity Bid Day marches around campus in the Fall and Spring. The campus bell that rings a nice little tune every hour on the hour. And certainly the unforgettable Eagle CAWH that anyone can throw up at a given time to show school spirit.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is not the best for its money, but it certainly is not a bad campus. The positive aspects out way the bad by miles and it will always be a great place to come back to. The overall tuition is perfect for a student who wants to get their degree and have a mildly enjoyable college experience at the same time.

    What to do for fun

    UNT is never really a dull place. Although it is in the middle of Denton, TX, there is still a lot to offer on and off campus. The local sports teams always have events going that are cheap and most of the time free! Many of the places located in the town square and close to campus have bus routes to get you back and forth. The Golden Triangle Mall is also relatively close for those who love to shop. Local groups such as Dallas Entourage host events weekly for those who like to go out to Dallas and have a little more fun. Fraternities and Sororities at UNT are always putting on creative philanthropy and social events for all to come and enjoy as well.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining services are great at UNT. Although it is not any home cooking, the food is never below a B- at any of the the 7 dining areas at UNT. Campus Chat located in the Student Union also has a very good variety of fast food and other better food choices if you have a little extra cash.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life anywhere is going to be rough. UNT is not much better than any other campus. Although there are constant activities to participate in, there are way better things to do in the Denton Square than to be partying in the Kerr Lobby on a friday night.

    Academic Rigor

    I would say from a starting engineering major standpoint the rigor is not that difficult. There are PLENTY of resources on campus that make it very easy to pass classes, study hard, and maintain that 4.0.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a tour! The campus is small and the tours are fun and interesting. Look at all the organization options! There are over 350 student organizations. Some of those include sports clubs, art clubs, music clubs, and Greek Life fraternities and sororities. Investigate the majors! There are over 90 different undergrad major categories with tons of sub categories to choose from.
