    It is your senior year of high school, you think that you are going to graduate and life can only get easier. You are excited to see what the world has for you and are now legally an adult. College is at your fingertips and freedom is your middle name! For some the next four years of your life will be the best and for others not so much. It all boils down to if you select the right school for you. When choosing a college we pay attention to all of the small details and one thing can quickly sell us on selecting that specific college such as â??all my family went hereâ??, but what really matters? My college of choice straight from high school was The University of North Texas and for me; it was the worst of times. First, UNT would have never entered my thought process if it was not for my brother. WARNING! This is the number one thing that you should not base your decision off of, someone else. My brother had a turn of fate and ended up being incarcerated. I wanted to live for him. I wanted to make him proud (another warning). Because of this I took a visit and things I liked and disliked did not matter because nothing was more important that finishing my brotherâ??s quest. This is the first step in whether or not you will enjoy your college and I done it all wrong. I went for my brother not myself and I did not do what would make me happy. If you do not listen to yourself then any school can become the worst of schools. But, regardless of these facts my mind was optimistic and I eventually began to really like and enjoy being a mean green eagle. The professors, peers, and alumni at this school are amazing! They are the highlights of this university. Everyone is like a huge family. You will definitely effortlessly make an unlimited amount of friends with never ending relationships. If I met someone today who has ever went to this college, even if in a completely different time frame, then we would automatically consider ourselves family and have each otherâ??s back. This is the main reason my time at this institute was extended. I felt that even on days that I did not feel like going to class or was not feeling the â??mean green vibeâ?? I had an enormous amount of unwavering support around me that I could not let down because we inspired and uplifted each other. Onto the things that were not so appeasing for me. The dorms! There are many halls. Different ones are specified for males or females separately which is a very good thing for most people especially worried parents. They also have co-ed halls, which leads me to Kerr hall where I stayed. It was dark, gloomy, and depressing. I actually fell into a depression staying here. I had to take counseling to help me with the process of transitioning from a cozy home to a small gloomy room. Given I do have a history of anxiety and depression but the area definitely brought it out of me during a time that I was excited for a new journey. Also, for me personally I needed to attend a school with a lot of spirit and pride. A lot of people at our school actually had more spirit for schools other than UNT. It heavily brought down the fulfillment in attending. In addition to this our sports were not booming. The football team always has a new coach and did not have a good recordâ?¦ever. We had great players but as a team we could not excel. Basketball games were more exciting than football but still very vague in support. I think what a lot of high school seniors seem to look at does not consist of school spirit but they do recognize it if it is there. This could be a huge disposition from transitioning from high school to college because high schools have a lot of spirit. For me this should have been a deciding factor in the choice that I made. After all of the tests and stress you want to thoroughly enjoy the aura and joy. A lot of universities make that atmosphere bearable and therefore it unconsciously makes your life as a student less stressful. Being able to enjoy yourself is just a small notch in importance under verifying that the school is good for you educationally. You need a level plane. It is definitely something to think about when narrowing down things. After it is all said and done you have to know yourself. You need to evaluate what is important to yourself and things you know are important to you regardless of what other people believe or think should be most important. We all weight differently on different factors. For some this essay will not be helpful at all because what mattered to me is irrelevant to you. For another person it might help. Even with my reflections visit for yourself because nobodyâ??s considerations are as vital as your own. The best thing I can say to any potential student is to be ready. A college can be perfect but you have to be ready for it and all that it has to offer will embrace you.

    Tips I would give is to first be yourself. The school is populated and full of different people so it's not hard to not meet someone. You will easily find your group of friends. Use the library and the media library! Those are a must! When your roomate is getting on your nerves or you like to study in peace, the library has everything you need. Oh, you've heard that before? Trust me, I'm a student athlete who's hangout spot isn't exactly the library, but when I want to get away, use the computers, listen to some music, rent video games, or even just rent a movie I'm able to do so. The media library does have certain hours versus the general library that's open 24 hours 7 days a week. ALSO, get involved with the school because I promise it makes college more fun. UNT is all about activities and organizations and getting their students involved. They hold most of their events at the library mall during the middle of the day (11am-3pm) and now the student union is up and running so you can never run out of things to do.

    If you're an incoming student I highly suggest: 1. Scheduling a orientation date early on. During your orientation date you will schedule your classes, so take advantage of your time and apply early. 2. Visit the campus. This really is optional, however I still recommend doing it because it's a big campus. Once you walk around even a couple times it will be really easy to remember where you are. 3. Opening up and communicating with other freshman 4. STUDY: Some classes are reviews and slightly more in depth than previous classes. Others are new, and it's important you don't take advantage of the fact that class is optional. You will need the information 5. GO TO CLASS: That whole 'Class is optional' is a lie. First off, some professors do take attendance, either by attendance papers or class work. Secondly, even though some are optional it's still important. You may have a professor that will repeat what they went over the class before, but that's only up to them. 6. Take notes. College is nothing like high school. No one is too cool to pay attention. Take them. Bring a notebook, laptop, or tablet and write down those notes. 7. Read between the lines. Some professors will try their best to help you, but there will be some things that you have to learn on your own: responsibility and commitment. 8. ALWAYS try your best. Very cliche but very important. Most professors don't have extra credit opportunities so it's important to take each assignment seriously. Some classes only have a few quizzes and your exams meaning that 58 could really hurt you.

    Do your research before you come here- come visit, look around to see if Denton is right for you. Also look over the majors offered- make sure there's plenty to choose from if you ever change your mine. On top of that, make sure the major you are perusing has a large program here because small programs tend to have less rigorous classes, less people and it hard to connect to those who are in the same field.
