    Tips for prospective students

    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.

    To each their own person. Please read my review further for more details

    What to do for fun

    UNT is always throwing parties. On campus and off campus. There is a bowling alley around campus, you can chat with the deaf at Zarra's, Contribute in community service, attend the events hosted (There's a bunch...... trust me), attend the sporting events or go to the mall off exit Loop 288. Denton is a small city, but there is always something to do. If that's not enough, the next closest city is Lewisville and Dallas is no more than 45 mintues away.

    Food and Dining

    There are a bunch of food choices all around campus which is my favorite part of UNT.... just kidding. But, the food is great. The dining halls include: Champs, Maple, Bruce, West and Kerr. My favorite hall is Bruce because they have more variety in their food and the food tastes better. They have a different variety of food everyday with pizza, pasta, salad and deserts. On campus there are more food choices like Kush Roti that specializes in international sandwhiches and now with the student union being open, there are even more choices! I love it.

    Dorm Life

    Living in the dorm my freshman year was really fun! I stayed in Victory Hall, which is like it's own secluded island on the other side of campus, but I like to make it seem like a private party island. I met a whole bunch of people of different majors, the RAs' are really cool and laid back and they help whenever you need it. Victory hall is my favorite because you have free washer and dryer, they have vending machines, pool table, ping pong table and about 2-3 lounging areas in the lobby. Also, Champs is the dining hall connected to the building as well as neighboring the athletic center and Apogee stadium. As a student athlete going into my sophomore spring semester, I live in Victory Hall again and I've pretty much grown out of it. In addition, whenever we have home games, you are litterally right next to the stadium so go out to the game and get your Mean Green on! (The games are free, c'mon) But, the parking is a hassle. Every night before the day of the game, you have to move your car onto campus in order for guests to park unless you want your car towed.

    Academic Rigor

    UNT, I believe is the perfect size for me. I am a Kinesiology major and my upper level classes aren't too big in size and the professors are very serious about their job. They have the perfect amount of strict and sense of humor. Also, in my classes other than my major, the proffesor can be very helpful with assisting with TA's and provididng extra credit. my favorite part (:

    Tips for prospective students

    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.

    In three sentences

    Attending The University of North Texas has changed my life tremendously. The school is extremely diverse and highly involved with their students. The staff are all around people and there are multiple opportunities to join clubs, meet new people and get to understand the campus better.

    Campus Safety

    There are cops patrolling the campus to ensure you safety. I haven't heard of any incidents either.

    Greek Life

    I wasn't in a sorority but my roommate was. I was actually really surprised how expensive they were to get into. She paid into the thousands for her dues.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are hundreds of organizations on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is great for all students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    During the Spring, UNT have a day where volunteers get together and volunteer around Denton in order to help to community.

    Bang for the buck

    My parents (mother) wasn't and still isn't able to contribute anything towards my college fund, so I literally needed all I could get. I did have to take out a small loan my first year, but it was for my personal expenses. So, you have at least enough money for the small things you should be covered. They covered everything else for me.

    What to do for fun

    There are lots of organizations on campus that you can get involved with, so make sure to at least look and see if there is something you will like.

    Food and Dining

    Every morning I ate at Kerr Hall. The food, to me, was good. Things to know: 1. Your hall may not have a cafeteria in it, so you will have to walk to another hall. This may or may not be a problem for you, if you are relying on eating in the cafeterias; during the winter it can be hard. 2. Sometimes the cafeterias are empty, and sometimes their crowded. 3. Bring your I.D. card with you if you have a meal plan, if you don't bring you will have to pay to get in and eat. Remember this: Your I.D. is the most important thing you can carry with you besides your books You will NEED it to get in you Hall past certain hours of the day, upstairs in the hall, and to eat on your meal plan. Don't forget it. EVER.

    Dorm Life

    I stayed in Clark Hall my freshman year and it was great. The RA's (what you will be calling them AKA resident assistants) are really nice and helpful. Each hall holds events to try and incorporate the students in resident life, it's fun. Things to know: 1. There will be drills held during the semester, they're LOUD. So if you go to sleep early, you're in for a wake up call ;) 2. It's college. You will soon learn that it's not home, it's your new home. You will have to adjust to living with another person and around other people. It's what you make it. Leading to my next points. 3. Everyone has a different bed time. 4. You will be living with a stranger, not staying, living. I imagined my roommate to be someone that I just saw between classes when I went back to my dorm, well there's that and then some. Even if you like you're roommate, you will still have to adjust. You will be waking up around the same time, eating around them, and having a couple awkward moments when you first meet them, but that's fine. Make sure to just be yourself and get to know them. They're yours for 9 months. 5. Respect your roommate. Their space, belongings, and wants. However, don't be passive, allowing them to disrespect you. So treat them the way you want to be treated. Also, be sure to actually have a conversation on who will do what; who will clean this? Who will provide that? Will you provide your own? 6. There are laundry facilities in the dorms where you will of course wash your clothes. Get there early or during a time you think it won't be crowded, for obvious reasons. 7. Make sure you have some way to have your necessities stocked up in your room. Toilet paper, laundry detergent, etc. 8. Have fun. Don't get to caught up and forget to have fun. One of your classmates may live in your hall.

    Academic Rigor

    I am giving the academic rigor five stars because I believe you'll get what you work for. Simple as that.

    Tips for prospective students

    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.

    In three sentences

    UNT is an amazing school. It is student friendly in ways you wouldn't imagine. During my time here, I couldn't name one problem.

    Campus Safety

    Great campus safety- there's always police around to make sure everything to okay

    Greek Life

    I am not in Greek Life so I don't know

    Clubs and Activities

    There's not a bunch of clubs- maybe there is but it's not advertised well so you never know. The clubs that I know UNT has are clumped together in a couple of categories

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for the artistic and music majors. Bio majors have a large department and is okay for them. Good for diverse student who want a comfortable environment.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Here at UNT there is not any tradition that I have come across

    Bang for the buck

    What you are paying for is exactly what you are going I get- nothing more but nothing less. Interpret that how you want

    What to do for fun

    They have movie nights every Thursday, there is the square but honesty nothing appealed to me. Denton seems very quiet compare to the city I came from so I find it boring.

    Food and Dining

    UNT has many places around it to eat as well as more places to eat on campus since the Union just finished up. Very diverse food options!

    Dorm Life

    I really don't know since I commute but based on my three day stay at UNT for orientation I did not enjoy it. Socially I don't know but physically the rooms are all cramped, too many people and nothing is attractive.

    Academic Rigor

    Academically the school is good but not great- maybe it's because I haven't yet taken 3000-4000 classes yet but I expected it to be more difficult. Talk to your professors. I know it's hard since classes mostly consist of 100+ but if you can't, I would recommend you to talk to your T.A's- they can super helpful.

    Tips for prospective students

    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.

    In three sentences

    A good school for the tuition you are paying. The school is diverse and filled with a large body of different skill set. It's location is not that great since there's always construction going on plus Denton seems dead at times to me probabaly because I come from a bustling city.

    Bang for the buck

    You get a quality education for less than other major universities.

    What to do for fun

    The Square is a fun place to go with friends in the evening. They usually have live music and some great restaurants. Dallas and Fort Worth are also pretty close by and are really fun cities to visit on the weekends.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty good and there is always a wide variety of food options - even a vegan dining hall!

    Dorm Life

    Each hall has their own dorm culture and the RA's are very willing to help you out.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm a music major, so of course the classes will be challenging when you're attending the 13th best music school in the world. So speaking from my experiences, I am sure all classes provide the same challenging experiences because UNT has so many amazing programs.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early, as with any other school. Find other prospective students over social media, both in your major and not in your major and make friends! This'll not only make your first semester more enjoyable, but you'll also have a strong support group in your classes who can help you out with homework, studying, etc.

    In three sentences

    For me, it has become a home away from home. You get a top notch school that is known worldwide, yet you get the feel of a calm, safe environment at the same time. Everyone is so willing to help you out and make you feel welcome.

    Campus Safety

    The campus could use more lighting at night, but otherwise I've never had an incident that compromised my safety.

    Bang for the buck

    The education is awesome and there are great amenities. Overall, I don't feel like I'm being cheated out of money.

    What to do for fun

    They have many different activities you can attend. However, I do not live on campus so I can't really specify on anything.

    Food and Dining

    The university has a large selection of different foods to choose from. I like the food.

    Dorm Life

    Cannot not comment since I commute.

    Academic Rigor

    There is a large difference in he amount of work expected of you from community college and high school, but it is not unreasonable. They are working on redesigning the class structure and the new designs help enhance education.

    Tips for prospective students

    Explore everything that the university has to offer and make use of it. Memorize where your classes are ahead of time and have a campus map with you the first few days.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a great school. The overall costs are reasonable for the caliber of education. I love attending this university.

    UNT is definitely a reasonable price considering the neighboring Universities and offers many resources for its students!

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of options to choose from on Campus and with the Union coming soon by the end of the 2015 Fall semester, it will be even better! Not to mention, the surrounding places to eat that provide a lot of variety. Down the road, there are always new places opening up and within 5 minutes from campus.

    Dorm Life

    I can not comment on the dorm life since I commuted.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes I have taken on campus have all given me another outside resource to use if I am not feeling confident in the material we are learning. In my opinion, this is one of the key features I liked about this University. Professors are always easy to contact and to communicate problems with. So far, this University has made given me assurance that I can master any class if I use all the help they offer.

    In three sentences

    University of North Texas offers a great variety of resources for academic and personal purposes. There is definitely a positive vibe here that promotes social interaction and comfortability. This school has definitely opened my eyes to the opportunities this University provides for all of its student's futures.

    Food and Dining

    UNT is so close to big cities like Dallas and Fort Worth which is definitely a big help to start exploring different types of food. However, don't worry if you can't afford to dine out because they also have the widest variety of foods at their cafeterias.

    Dorm Life

    The admission counselor mentioned that the campus has a low crime rate and is probably one of the safest schools in Texas!

    Academic Rigor

    They don't have high expectations compared to other campuses. If you need help with a class or struggling to choose a major, they got you covered! They have professional academic advisors who genuinely care about your success.

    In three sentences

    I met the admissions counselor today and I instantly fell in love with this school! It's a little bit different but that's exactly what I'm looking for. I definitely liked the fact that they have over 300 student organizations and tons of events on campus so I can meet new people!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There's constantly programs and guest speaker lectures (you can usually attend these for free!) and free stuff being handed out on campus.

    Food and Dining

    There are 5 dining halls/cafeterias at UNT: Bruce, West, Victory, Maple, and Kerr. All dining halls have a salad bar. The menus can be found online so you can check where you want to eat in advance. Victory, imo, has the best food. However, it's also the farthest cafeteria, as it resides on the other side of the highway (you can take a bus to get there but it stops running after 5pm). The food is well-cooked and seasoned, and they have omelettes for breakfast. I haven't eaten very often here, though, as I am not an athlete. Maple probably has the second best. It's a vegan cafeteria but the food is delicious and the paninis are delicious and they also make grilled PB&Js that are also delicious. The fruits and veggies are the freshest here as well. Bruce is a bit of a toss-up. They consistently serve mac&cheese, rolls, and rotisserie chicken if you're into that sort of thing every day. They have a sandwich line (sometimes they don't take your order correctly and give you rye instead of sourdough and stuff like that) and a pizza/pasta line (50-50 chance that the pizza is dry or the pasta is overcooked) and a vegan bar that varies (breakfast for dinner on Thursdays is the best though). You can usually find something you want to eat though, as they serve a lot of food. Kerr is like Bruce except it's the only cafeteria open after 8pm and on weekends. The desserts are better imo and they also have ice cream. West has home-style food. Apparently their fried chicken is really great, which they serve on Wednesdays. I've enjoyed the food their at the times I've been there, but it's probably the smallest cafeteria with the least amount of options. Surrounding restaurants within 5-15 minute walking distance include Jimmy John's, Subway, Chipotle, Yogurtland, a boba place, Viet Bites, Seoul Chicken, Chicken Express, Chinese Fast Food, Pie Five, Crooked Crust, Potbelly. Denton square is a short drive away (<5 minutes) and has more restaurants and food choices. The Student Union is opening in Fall 2015 and will have more places to eat as well. Coffee is sold at several locations on campus and there is a Starbucks.

    Dorm Life

    Not much to say here, as I have not lived in many halls.

    Academic Rigor

    The music program is what UNT is known for, so that should probably be a 10/5, haha. However, judging math/science courses as a student taking mainly math and science courses, some classes are above average, some are below, and some are just average. I strongly believe your course rigor will depend on your professor. Some are more thorough in their teaching than others. This semester, I had several classes that were canceled due to weather and my cal3 prof opted to drop some topics that she previously planned on teaching, and thus was less comprehensive and rigorous in her teaching. Some classes are obviously not going to be on par with the best schools out there but if you're going to be an in-state student conscious of your tuition, UNT is not a bad place to be at all.

    From what I have seen online it looks like a great school, I was just curious about housing. If you lived in a hall that didn't offer summer housing would you have to switch halls for the summer then move back? How bad is it living in a triple room?

    Food and Dining

    This is the only campus I've visited that had a purely vegetarian dining hall. The dining halls are buffet style so if you're a stress eater this is the perfect place to study, although they play jazz music kind of loud in the dining halls so bring some headphones if you do. Every once in a while they'll have free food in giant white tents near the library

    Dorm Life

    The dorm lobbies were full of people having fun. The only problem is they're absolutely tiny, but an upside is you get to share a bathroom with your dorm neighbor (obviously they're same sex as you), instead of a communal bathroom at the end of the hall. The more space you want the more you'll have to pay, but there's plenty of apartment space close to campus for after freshman year if dorms arent your cup of tea. Also they're currently (2015) adding a ton of new dorms close to central campus that should be complete by 2016.

    Academic Rigor

    I reviewed the graphic design program while on a visit there and found they go through 4 reviews throughout the 4 year program, and usually have a graduating class of about 40.

    Willis Library is called Club Willis, and the walkway in front of the library is called the Library Mall. The field by the library is literally just a field, but they called it the Onstead Promenade. At orientation and homecoming week, you'll walk across the bridge that links to Apogee (the stadium). It will be terrifying and your friends will leave you behind.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT will do everything in their power to help you financially. For those of you in serious need of financial need, this is the place for you.

    What to do for fun

    Hang out in Willis Library, go to the Square, go to the Rec, go to UNT Events, stay active in your Hall Association, sleep in on weekends, go to Fry Street, etc.

    Food and Dining

    Food is good. Kerr Hall and Bruce Hall are always reliable. You'll always have fresh vegetables/greens and you'll most likely always have a choice of meat or chicken. There's also a vegan hall!

    Honors Hall (or Rawlins, for future freshmen) is fantastic. Dorms like Mozart, Sante Fe, Traditions, and Victory are worth the price you pay. Bruce is old and noisy but is located in the center of campus - easy access.

    Academic Rigor

    This depends on what classes you are taking. Average classes are pretty simple if you DO HOMEWORK AND READINGS. Seriously, slacking off is what puts you in the gutter with grades. Honors classes are fun, interactive, and way more challenging most of the time.

    Tips for prospective students

    Think about what Denton has to offer you. Also, if you don't have a car, consider how you would get from campus to stores like Target, Walmart, etc. Get the 7 day meal plan - the food is good and you won't have to spend more on the weekends. Get to know your RA and your roommate. They will be there in your times of need.

    In three sentences

    Deemed the last resort college but will feel like home. Dedicated to green living, most likely to hear music on your way to class. Don't need to be a sports fan to have fun.

    What to do for fun

    Fry street or Downtown Denton. Ride the train!

    Dorm Life

    Depends on you. Don't put yourself out there and then not be involved in the dorm life, because then you just become a target of discussion. It's not always personal, but it is annoying. So, if you know your gonna be busy living your own dang life outside of Kerr or Crumley or West hall and don't want a messy thing, thendon't get too friendly with the locals.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are hard for no reason.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your research about your major, the graduate programs offered here and the administration. Change comes from all of us, especially if you're a prospect. You don't really need your car around here, but it can come in handy, but trust me it's not a necessity. Find your niche. Your Freshman year is your opportunity to try things and not like them and no one if gonna come after for it. But whatever you do, do something! Make your money worth it! Always appeal fines! Always ask questions. Don't let authority scare you! The air is thick; bring eye drops.

    In three sentences

    UNT possesses great potential in it's current Tier 2 status. However the current administration doesn't necessarily provide the very good support facilities and options for students, or at least doesn't them utterly visible. Tuition is much too high for a school of it's caliber in the past year, it's selling point was that it was the best buy in the state of Texas and in the U.S. and now UNT isn't.

    What to do for fun

    There are always great parties on the weekend. There are two movie theaters close by the campus and right next to the campus is Fry Street. There are bars, a hookah bar, and places to eat. There's also The Square, which has the courthouse and a lot of little shops and good places to eat. Beth Marie's is probably the best ice cream place in Denton. The Golden Triangle Mall is probably the best place to shop. There's a great bowling place as well.

    Food and Dining

    The best place to eat is probably Victory Hall or Bruce. Victory is kind of inconvenient since it's across the highway, but the pizza is really good and if you go in the morning, they make omelettes - they're incredible. Bruce is just convenient since it's close to all dorms (other than Victory) and usually has the best food on campus. The Kerr cafeteria is definitely not known for it's good food, but it's open until 12 PM so that's where everyone goes if they want a late night snack or they're hungry after an intramural game. The Mean Greens cafeteria (behind Maple Hall) is a vegan cafeteria and even though I'm not a vegan, I think the food is very good. The breakfast is so good - the biscuits are amazing, especially with chocolate syrup sauce. On 2 days of the week they had a station open for stir fry and those were my favorite days. The food is so good.

    Dorm Life

    I loved living in Maple Hall. It was so fun. If you don't hang out downstairs in the game room or trophy room though, it probably won't be too fun. All the dorms are the same, not the way they look, but that they all have dorm hall associations that plan activities for your dorm and they all have areas where people hang out. I met most of my friends my hanging around my dorm. I volunteered for the hall association in my dorm, so that always gave me something to do if I had finished all my work or if I was just bored.

    Academic Rigor

    It's not the hardest school to get into, but I've heard that if you want to study music, it's pretty competitive. It depends on what classes you take that determine how hard/easy it is. Last semester I took Art for non-art majors, and as a mechanical engineering major, it was pretty hard in my opinion (and others). The teacher was very passionate about the subject, so she graded stricter than I would have expected. All my math classes have been incredibly easy, but I've heard that Physics is very hard to pass - I'll find out soon for myself. I have a lot of friends majoring in Biology and Chemistry, and they've said some of their classes are pretty hard as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are planning on studying at UNT, be sure to play intramural sports. I did and I made tons of great people. It also helps if you want to know about other clubs to join, but you can usually find flyers throughout the campus and inside the buildings. UNT usually holds many activities during the school year, like last year, J. Cole performed. It was so fun, pretty much the whole school was there. The teachers that I've had and have heard of are all great, but always make sure to look up teachers on ratemyprofessor.com to make sure since every school has their share of bad professors. The main library - Willis Library - is the place to be. Everyone is there, so if you ever need people to study with or need somewhere to go before your next class, you'll find someone at Willis. It's also open 24/7, which is extremely convenient. If you need somewhere to study, there are 5 floors - the bottom and the last 3 are the quietest.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a great school for students pursuing a degree in the arts, biology/chemistry, or business. All the professors that I've had have been great and the people in Denton are generally nice. There are various types or organizations and club - intramural sports is a big thing at this school and it's incredibly fun!

    Campus Safety

    Every campus has their flaws, and this may be one of them for UNT. Overall though with police on campus all the time and nearby (station across from campus) I think they do an excellent job of combatting crime in the area. Always walk with someone else to be on the safe side though.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life has it's advantages. Great grades, brotherhood/sisterhood, and lifelong friends.Find one that meets your needs.

    Everyone hangs out on Fry St. in between classes and after. Also the Student Union will be amazing once construction is complete.

    Bang for the buck

    With college tuition increasing all over the country, it's nice to know that UNT has still made college affordable- even for a single mother with 2 part time jobs. Not too mention financial aid for those who need it most.

    What to do for fun

    Denton is great. Get to know this amazing town by going to the Square or the many festivals they have throughout the year. Fry Street is so much fun, and all right next to campus.

    Food and Dining

    Hello, they have Chick-fil-a! Okay really though, they have a great variety from vegetarian to Italian they have it all. The healthy salad bar is always delicious!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life can be chaotic. From what I've heard it's a hit or miss. I myself chose to commute instead.

    Academic Rigor

    UNT has some very talented professors. Take the more rigorous courses to learn more from some of the best professors around.

    Tips for prospective students

    Work hard, especially in the beginning! And don't let the college experience shown on tv/movies fool you as that is just Hollywood's touch of magic. Join an organization so that you feel apart of something bigger than yourself. After all, college is about getting to know thyself.

    In three sentences

    UNT is great because it's close to home, yet far enough to feel away at college; also you will meet so many new people and have the opportunity to network with alumni for after graduation. Eagle pride is all around, and this campus has so much more to offer- you have to experience it for yourself- so be sure to join an organization. Go Eagles!

    Campus Safety

    As long as you don't walk around at night alone with your earbuds in, you should be fine. The campus cops are pretty active and patrol regularly, and you should feel safe here. The campus is well-lit and almost always has people walking around. Just exercise your common sense and you'll do just fine here.

    Greek Life

    Greeks live in opulent, dedicated chapter houses on the outskirts of campus, and have their own parking. Although I am not Greek, I have seldom seen them around campus. For the most park, UNT Greeks tend to keep to themselves. There's a new Greek Life Center on campus, although I'm not sure what for. Perhaps if more of the students were interested in going Greek it would be relevant.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are lots of clubs on campus, and there is surely something for everyone. The UFC has several free events planned each week with food, movies, and other fun stuff to get students talking.

    Great for these types of students

    Any variety of liberal arts student will be very happy here. Music, art and theatre majors clearly have the advantage as far as campus facilities.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The annual homecoming bonfire is a major attraction, as is the pre-game tailgating at the Hill. The fountains on the library promenade are dyed green during homecoming. Our clocktower glows green when we win a football game, and the bells within it chime our fight song on the hour. UNT really is full of school spirit and pride, if you know where to look.

    Bang for the buck

    I'd say UNT is fairly well priced, and they have a great program called the Eagle Express Tuition Plan. This plan sets your rates at a fixed price if you graduate in four years, which saves you roughly $4000. PSA: Steer clear of the on campus BN bookstore; they inflate their prices ludicrously. Even pencils and notebooks end up costing you twice as much as Target or Walmart. If you're needing textbooks, check Chegg.com for rentals, and wait until the first day of class to ask if you even need a book. You're welcome!

    What to do for fun

    Denton is a great little city that is always growing. You can shop at the Golden Triangle Mall or the strip center in town, and the Square is lined all around with cute local shops. The Square also holds several festivals in spring, such as the Jazz and Classic Car festivals. If you have a car, you can drive a ways to Highland Village for more shopping, or even further to Grapevine Mills for a large mall with an ice rink.

    Food and Dining

    The dining halls on campus are great. There are some that are vegan, such as Bruce, and others that feature BBQ, such as Kerr. Meal plans are fairly well priced, and you swipe in with your convenient little ID card. Other places to eat on campus are the food court, which has Taco Bell, Chick fil A, Boar's Head Deli, and Market Homestyle Cooking. Khush Roti(a great little food truck on campus), Go! Station(a grab-and-go coffee shop), Biz Cafe(another cafe on campus), Cafe GAB(coffee shop), and Park Place Market(grilled sandwiches at Discovery Park) are also located on campus.

    Dorm Life

    Most dorms reserved for Freshman, such as Kerr or Victory, are extremely old and in various states of disrepair. Sure, the location is amazing (bang on campus for all except Victory), but the poor sound insulation and inconsiderate neighbors will make this a very trying year. The dorms tend to be overpriced for what you get, in my opinion, and meal plans are usually not included. There is a pseudo roommate matching service in which you fill out a survey, but I'm not sure the staff even looks at those. If you're a resident on campus, parking is wonderful. You can park in the lot for any dorm on campus, which can be very convenient for classes or visiting friends.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major, UNT can be the best decision you've ever made, or the worst. Any liberal arts major will fit right in here, and you will look forward to going to class each day. Any other major, science majors, specifically, this is not the case. UNT's science classes are half-relevant at best, and the professors are more interested in their research than you. It's really a crapshoot if you get a warm, open, helpful professor or a harsh, cruel, professor who would rather be anywhere else.

    Tips for prospective students

    UNT does not place too much stock in test scores or academic records. They will let pretty much anyone in until space is filled, which is quick. Be sure to submit all your pertinence to Admissions as soon as you can to secure a spot. If you are an accepted Freshman, try to live at home if you can. The dorms on campus are expensive, crowded, and frequently ridden with maintenance issues. Also, if you commute, try to park somewhere on a UNT shuttle route and just take the bus to campus, because you will not be able to get a parking spot unless you arrive at the crack of dawn.

    In three sentences

    If you are a Liberal Arts Major, UNT is perfect for you. This University will cultivate your passion and provide boundless inspiration with its beautiful campus and creative students. UNT is generous with aid money, making achieving your goal that much more attainable.

    There are always activities for the general public and if you're part of a club you'll always have things to do! Just get involved and there will never ben a dull moment.

    Food and Dining

    Their vegan cafeteria is delicious! Kerr cafeteria is questionable, but Maple dining is always a good choice!

    Dorm Life

    I mean, I've heard of some good residence halls at UNT, but whatever you do, DO NOT LIVE IN KERR. It's absolutely terrible; people scream in the hallways in the middle of the night, nobody has any respect there. It's like a jungle.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel like the professors here couldn't care less about whether what they're saying is even beneficial to the students sometimes. I often find myself wondering if they just lecture in classes to hear their own voices because they seem to lack the ability to teach and only seem to ramble. I know they're lectures, but I've heard lectures that were much more comprehensible than these.

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice would be to really investigate the schools you are considering prior to making you decision. Know what's important to you in a school and be picky about the areas that matter to you. If you don't quite know what you want in a school yet, find one that is satisfactory across the board, just don't settle for something you're not proud of!

    In three sentences

    This school deserves more credit than it gets. With that being said, it's not the right school for me due to lack of a competitive atmosphere and drive. Though it has some wonderful programs (such as the jazz music program), it lacks both funding and attention in other less highly acclaimed programs and majors.

    If you never want to be bored in your dorm join a few clubs. They have meetings that arn't mandatory, so if you have to study you can choose to not go, but if you're bored you have the opportunity to. UNT also holds many events like movie nights behind the library and zombie laser tag around halloween. You can always find something to do if you get involved.

    Food and Dining

    The food is really good, at first I thought it was amazing. It does tend to be repetitive but it still it food in your belly. It is a really good deal, a buffet for around $7. If you get tired of the dining halls you can use your flex dollars and go to restaurants on and around campus and get tax free food.

    Dorm Life

    Living in a dorm is nice, you arn't too far from your classes so you get to sleep alittle more. The community is friendly, it is a good way to establish a good friend base. If you get a dorm that has a dining hall you will love just going downstairs and eating.

    Academic Rigor

    It really depends on which class you take, some teachers will have online tests while others will have fill in the blank tests in class. If you choose right you could make it really easy or really hard. Even the harder classes arn't too hard, you just have to apply yourself.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do you work ahead of time, also make sure you study ahead of time, don't wait until the last week to cram, it might work for some, but it is extremly stressful, and could be dangerous to your grade. Learn from mistakes and don't make those same mistakes again.

It's awesome to be able to attend a school where the people that work there have actually done the things that you want to do.

Find a good hang out spot. There are tons of places on campus to hang out, study, or to even just take a nap. Find a good place where you can go if your dorm room just becomes a little too much. Take advantage of everything on campus. This school isn't cheap, but it comes with a lot of benefits. They really take care of you on campus. The gym is great, they have movies every week, and there are always free events going on. Find some things that will help take your mind off school and take advantage of those. You paid for them.

    I felt very safe on campus while I was there and I saw a lot of those blue emergency button thingys around campus.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is great for people who fear being alone and not being able to find any friends in college, like me! My high school is very preppy and are not accepting to minority races or people hat are different. This is a place that is the opposite of that. Everyone that I saw was a completely different person. There were quite a few people who are over weight who go there as well, so if you are insecure about weight, racial status, social status, or anything of the sort, I assure you you'll fit in to UNT.

    Food and Dining

    TBH, the food was not good. It tastes like middle school cafeteria food. Yeah, you know what I'm talking about..a typical cafeteria with typial cafeteria food that tasted nasty and looked nasty. Although, they do have some pretty amazing pizza, I'll gie them that.

    Dorm Life

    I am not a student here but I did come here for a camp and stayed in a dorm. It was spacious but it was overall pretty crappy. There was a small chunk of the floor missing, scratches and dents on the furnature, and the sink sucked and constantly dripped. We shared a bathroom with another dorm which had a good toilet but the shower didn't warm up all the way. The water was luke warm at its best. The worst thing about it was that we couldn't control the temperature in our room so it was freezing at night. Other than that, the dorm building was okay, with 2 rooms to hang out with people in on the main floor and a front desk person which was there 24/7 kind of like a hotel. lol.

    Campus Safety

    I've never had an issue on this capmus. I had tons of late classes and there were alwsys campus police patrolling the grounds and buildings. There was never a time when I didn't feel safe.

    Greek Life

    The IFC really rule this campus but you can also catch the greeks on the strip propmoting events of there's or even strutting. It's pretty fun seeing all of them doing chants or steps.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are tons on clubs and things to do around campus. There are constantly organizations on the strip in front of the main library that offer games, music, food, and information. The school also has events all the time with really big events throughout the year.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a very interesting spot in about the middle of campus where you can be free to express what ever you wish. There are usually many odd and interesting displays there but it keeps your walks around campus fun and interestingly weird.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is very affordable and there a plenty of job opportunities here for you to chose from. The school offers many scholarships and grants.

    What to do for fun

    There are tons of bars close by campus and even if you aren't of age for that there are still many hang out spots. The campus itself is usually alive with events and down town Denton stays entergetic.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty great and each caf has it's own wonders to enjoy. There is everything from traditional southern food to italian to tex mex to veagan and vegitarian cafs here. The variety keeps things interesting and fun.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are pretty average depending on where you stay. The dorms based on different majors and intersts are pretty great. They make it a big deal to ensure you're comfortbale in your comunity.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes here are pretty tough but the staff is very helpful and eager to assist you with anything you might need. The students also often come together to get harder classes conquored.

    Tips for prospective students

    With this being a pretty nice size campus I would recomend having a bike handy to get around. The people are also very friendly so don't be afraid to say hi!

    What to do for fun

    There was always something going on at UNT, some festival or fair or party, they even bring a major artist to campus and have a concert free for students. Student organizations were always having events for UNT students on campus. Denton itself is a college town, so it was easy to find something to do. During weekends though, campus is kind of dead because most people that go to school there live nearby and go home for the weekend. I myself went home every weekend and whenever I came back on Sundays campus was really dead.

    Food and Dining

    The food was pretty good. There are a total of 5 cafeterias on campus and each kind of had their own theme. Kerr was the freshman dorm and their cafeteria stayed open all night so that was nice. Bruce is the central cafeteria and it was in the middle of campus so it was really convenient to grab something to eat going to and from class. Maple was my favorite in my opinion and it was an all vegan cafeteria. West served southern style food. Victory had some of the best food however, it was off campus. The food could kind of get boring sometimes but you did have a big variety and you have to purchase a meal plan if you are a freshman living on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I lived in West Hall which is one of the smaller dorms on campus. I loved West, it's a very tight-knit community and it was easy to meet people and make friends. There was always something going on in the dorms, lots of RAs hold activities to meet people like during Halloween there was a party, a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt, a beauty pageant, there was a campus wide assassination game that was really fun. Intramural sports were always fun and I played a bunch of sports and got to know the people at West. There were rules you had to abide by, especially during midterms and finals week, they wanted to make sure you could study in peace. Overall, I recommend living in a dorm your first year, it was a great experience.

    Academic Rigor

    I am an ecology major so the classes I am taking are geared toward science majors, which have to take separate science classes than a person who isn't a science major. So, my classes are definitely harder than most on campus. UNT can be a challenge and you won't get bored because the material is too easy. But, if you go to class and take good notes you will do fine in your classes. Plus, UNT offers a bunch of resources for students. Depending on your class, they could hold SI sessions to help review before tests, professors are always available to you, the Learning Center and Writing Lab and Math Lab offers free tutoring for students, and it's always easy to make friends and have study groups. UNT can be a challenge, but they will always make sure their students are prepared.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always follow up on your paper work. UNT is really bad about it, I know they lost my stuff several times and I wouldn't have known about it if I didn't follow up with them.

    In three sentences

    I love UNT! Don't be intimidated by the big size because for a huge campus, it definitely doesn't feel like one. You will get comfortable and make friends easily here.

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus and I think that was the best choice for me. Some dorms only have community showers and some only have community bathrooms!

    My classes so far are pretty easy but they hold your focus. You can enjoy some days off, but usually not too many in a row.

    Campus Safety

    Campus is generally safe. we have emergency buttons all over campus just in case. Crime rate is absolutely low.

    Greek Life

    There are different fraternities and sororities but I am not a memebr of any. I do not know much about it so you might want to look them up on orgsync.

    Clubs and Activities

    OMG there are almost 40,000 students so every single club you can Imagine is on campus. If not, you can start your own! I am part of a few of them and it helps to make friends and network or to show off your leadership skills.

    Great for these types of students

    Relaxed, chilled, into music- so many concerts going on around denton. I am not that much into concerts but hey I go once in a while.

    It is located in Denton, Tx. I have never heard of this place until I got here. I did not know what to expect, but i ended up liking it. I call it my second home :)

    Bang for the buck

    The reason why I chose to go to UNT was because of the cost. It is really affordable and there are so many scholarships available to students from all backgrounds. I couldn't have made a better choice!

    What to do for fun

    Campus events are a big thing for me. There is always someting going on everyday of the week on campus. there are lots of places to go eat around denton and the bars and pubs are right on campus. awesome! (I do not drive)

    Food and Dining

    The food is good. I had the option of eating from atleast five different cafeterias. We also have a vegan cafeteria. I would go eat whenever I was hungry or just wanted to hang out with friends. Everything that I wanted to eat was provided since they have sugesstion boxes that you could request what type of food you will like to see them serve. The staffs are really friendly and did I mention that I worked in one of the cafeterias for my freshman year! I really do miss the food since I no longer have a meal plan :(

    Dorm Life

    I lived in Maple dorm my freshman year and I can say I really liked it there. I made friends easily even though I was reallly timid.We have common rooms that anyone can go chill and relax after class, equiped with pool tables, Tv and other games. Dinning hall was downstairs so I would go down in my pyjamas to go eat lol. There are other dorms that are really descent for you to choose from.

    Academic Rigor

    College is demanding regardless of the school you chosse. I am currently a Bioogy Senior and I study really hard. With Exams, quizzez, homeworks, and presentations ,the course can be rigorous depending on the professor and the material at hand. Work hard and you should be fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Visit the campus to get a feel of it. Our Eagle ambassadors that give the tour know the campus really well so ask them questions.Get to know them too! because you will be seeing them around once you choose to go here :)

    Victory hall is the best dorm but you live across the highway! Transportation is provided. I do not recommend Maple hall or Kerr Hall. Although Kerr has a dining hall, its always busy and getting to your floor takes a while because the elevators are always in use.

    UNT classes are not easy. That being said, they are definitely doable. Honors classes are fun and academically more challenging!

    Campus Safety

    I've never had any problems, but as usual there's been reports of issues. Though I think it's typical of any college campus. Just don't do anything stupid, be aware of surroundings and you'll be fine.

    Greek Life

    I know that there is Greek life, but how good it is, I don't know. The few people I know that are in Greek Life love it though.

    Clubs and Activities

    There's a ton of them, hundreds I believe.

    Great for these types of students

    Students that want a huge college will love this school. Those that want a decently easy school to get into will fit in nice here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I don't know that we have any traditions.

    Bang for the buck

    College is expensive, and UNT is about average. Typical of all colleges, they spend too much money on football and not enough on education. The college does feel old though, and many things are outdated. If you want a super modern feeling college, this is not the campus for you.

    What to do for fun

    There's a variety of activities, and the rec center which isn't half bad.

    Food and Dining

    Chick Fil A, and Taco Bell are on campus. Subway, Church's Chicken, and Jack in the Box are within walking distance. There's no Starbucks on campus which is a shame, but there is a few coffee shops on campus. The dining halls usually smell good, but I've never tasted the food.

    Dorm Life

    I'm rating this 5 stars because I never lived in the dorms, so I'm not going to penalize a rating for something I know nothing about.

    Academic Rigor

    This is not an easy school. Compared to community college, which is where I transferred from, this is almost twice as difficult, but not impossible. Class difficulty varies obviously, and as long as you do the work, I believe you'll be okay. Tutors are available for free for some classes as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tour the campus, and get comfortable with it. The university is not that difficult to get into, though that doesn't make it any less of a good school than the rest. Do what makes you happy.

    In three sentences

    Full with options, the University of North Texas is for a variety of students. If you are looking for a small college, this college is not for you. Filled with a variety of majors and activities, this college is sure to have a little something for anyone, and despite the fact that that can be intimidating at times, I believe it is actually a really good thing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a tour before going, but if you don't you'll still love this campus. Also to prepare for all of your classes each semester make sure you read all of your syllabuses. Buy a planner and write down all of your major exam dates and reviews.

    There is no smoking on campus, take it to any one of the bars nearby that allows smoking indoors. The campus is huge: always consult the map when making your schedule. Get involved in ANY group. They are all wonderful. Rent a house, not an apartment. Apartment rent in Denton is very high, but property values and taxes are low. Keep the violence elsewhere: Denton is a town full of good vibes as well as good music, good art, good food, and good people. Don't take online or hybrid classes unless you are very self motivated. Always go to class. You might miss test answers or your professor dancing - both are worth waking up for.

    Food and Dining

    UNT doesn't short you in options for dining. Whether your a dorm resident or off campus student, you can choose to dine at any of the five dining halls on campus. UNT also has the unique distinction of having the first all-vegan dining hall in the United States. If dining hall food doesn't get your taste buds salivating, you can pick from a variety of off campus dining options, surrounding the campus. Chipotle, Subway, Crooked Crust pizza, Potbelly sandwiches, thai food, indian food, we've really got it all.

    Dorm Life

    Most students dread the idea of dorm life. At UNT, it's where I met some of my very best friends. There are 8 different dorms to choose from which cater to the various needs of students. And if you're interested, you can even choose to live with people of your same major. Dorm life is where you will build the foundation of your college experience. And mingle with your fellow single freshmen, hello.

    There are emergency stations around campus and the police in Denton are very dependable. Every campus is going to have it's crime, but I don't think I've ever felt unsafe at UNT.

    Greek Life

    UNT doesn't seem to like Greek Life. In fact, if they catch wind of anything Greek Life related (even off campus) they'll put the police on alert.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are lots of different types of clubs and activities you can get involved with. It's pretty easy to find a group of like-interested people on this campus. If you're looking for any club or some activity to get involved with there are usually posts all over campus, otherwise there are a lot of things you can just get involved in in your field of study with groups in departments.

    Great for these types of students

    If you like to karaoke there are a lot of places around campus for you. If you like the arts there are a lots of art shows and the theatre usually has something going on. If you want to be a part of a fraternity or sorority all these groups are really active on campus.

    There are a lot of different events that take place on campus that can be fun to attend. There's also the Denton Square not too far away and there are lots of cool shops to look into as well as the Campus Theatre.

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of great dining options at UNT. There are meal plans, but there are also a lot of dining opetions just around campus.

    Dorm Life

    I personally haven't lived in any of the dorms at UNT, but from what I understand it really depends on what dorm you get. Some of them get praises while others seem to fall short (particularly when it comes to the cafeteria food).

    Academic Rigor

    I haven't had a class at UNT where the professor just didn't care or was completely crazy. Of course I've had classes where the professor didn't teach in a style that I found easy to mentally hold on to (me being a strong visual learner), or professors that gave out homework like their class was the only class you were taking; but despite that I think every class has been worth it. Some professors I have had, have really impacted not only my education, but who I am as a person.

    Make sure you keep up with your advising. It doesn't seem that important when you start out, but when it comes time to graduate it feels great to be on schedule with what classes you need to take.

    I have loved attending UNT. I wish I had started out here as a freshman rather than transfering, because I love being involved in on-campus activities. There are lots of things to do on and off campus, and the community is great! The only aspects of UNT I haven't enjoyed is that the financial office can be disprganized and it's stressful to have to be sorting out your financial situation with only a day's or even a few hours warning. Other than that I can't say I've had a class I didn't enjoy, and some of my professors have made my learning experience incredible. The people are great, and getting involved with campus on-goings is totally worth it.

    Campus Safety

    Campus is very safe with very few incidents.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is there but not very strong.

    What to do for fun

    If you want to have fun in the Denton area be sure to visit the Denton Square were there are many music venues, coffee shops, and bars.

    Food and Dining

    UNT has many diverse eateries on campus, including the Maple Hall dining room which is a all vegan cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is very good if you are open to meeting new people, but not all dorms are the same. If you want to get into any particular dorm be sure to apply in advance.

    Academic Rigor

    The University of North Texas has many great academic departments to choose from, but UNT is most know for it's Music Department.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're coming to North Texas come here for it's educational programs not it's athletic programs. While UNT won't have a football team competing for the BCS championship, the school still has school spirit and many different clubs and organizations. I would recommend getting involved in the organizations as they are a great way to meet new people.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas, while not the most well known school, offers great and affordable college education. North Texas offers many different degree programs taught by a quality teaching staff. I am very happy with my UNT experience and would recommend it to future students.

    What to do for fun

    UNT always has events going on for its residents. From movie nights outside the library, famous comedians brought for a show, concerts from our many ensemble groups, athletic events, even guest speakers such as Rainn Wilson and Seth Rogan! Looking for a night life? Fry Street is a great place to stop by, it's always fun (Granted you're 21 or older of course) and for the underaged, there's always the Denton Square that is about a 5 minute drive. It has various dining options, a theater, and various shops to pass the time. But that's only around campus, with the help of a car your free to enjoy all the fun Denton has to offer! Sure it's a small town, but it sure is packed with things to do and experience.

    Food and Dining

    UNT offers 5 on campus dining halls, on of which is completely Vegan and defiantly worth a try! On top of this, there is also a Chat where other dining options such as Taco Bell, Chick-Fil-a, Hog's Head, and several other restaurants are located. There are also several Cafe's around campus including at the huge Willis Library where you can stop by for a quick coffee or snack. UNT is also located by the Denton-Famous Fry Street, that offers great dinning options such as Crooked Crusts, Jimmy Johns, Pita Pit and many more! Great for a weekend out with friends or even a nice date night.

    Dorm Life

    The students are so friendly! You'll never be bored, there's always something going around in the dorm halls, whether its a weekend party, competitions, bonfires, or even just pool tournaments in the game rooms, the dorms are great for first year college students!

    Academic Rigor

    It's college, and you defiantly get what you paid for!

    Tips for prospective students

    We have the best Music program in Texas, the Kinesiology, Health Promotions and Recreation department is one of the top ranking around, our business school has a beautiful building and amazing teachers, and our College of Visual Art and Design is unrivaled.

    Campus Safety

    Never had any problems with security. The Campus has a ton of emergency poles and lights. They can always talk to you and send someone out to meet you in needed.

    Greek Life

    I didnt participate but many of my alumni friends loved their Greek experience.

    Clubs and Activities

    Was very active in my majors club and made a large number of friends and contacts that i am still able to work through. Recreation and Leisure Studies Society, It not just a major but a lifestyle.

    What to do for fun

    UNT has a million things to do! The Recreation Center has lots of fitness and sports going on as well as an outstanding Outdoor Pursuits Program! They have al kinds of low cost outdoor trips for students and faculty. They have a climbing wall and also rent out camping gear. Not to worry that your tent and sleeping bag are still at mom and dads and you are having major camping withdrawals. You cant take everything with you to college. UNT also has lots of festivals and event on campus which are mostly free!

    Food and Dining

    Great dining halls with lots of options and even some open late nights. The meal plan is worth it if you live on campus. If you donâ??t and commute they have some set number of meals a week dining plan, worth every bit of it. College is hard enough without trying to squeeze in making something to eat.

    Dorm Life

    Great dorms. I know they have built some new since I was there in 2009. They have triple, double and single occupancy with en suite bathrooms and some community bathrooms. Try to do you housing early to avoid the triple rooms with community bathrooms. They even have some doubles with a small kitchen area. Very helpful as you get to be sophomore and above trying to work and go to school.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes were difficult but doable. The hardest were the online and large auditorium classes. Avoid if possible.

    Tips for prospective students

    The academic advisers seemed overloaded especially in the education department. Get a list of your required degree classes and a list of when they will be offering said classes. Most departments have a listing of the upper level classes expected semester schedules since not all classes are always offered. Go by that and you should be fine.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a wonderful college filled with friendly students, faculty and squeriels. The Campus is beautiful and very accessible. I was able to ride my bike and walk 90% of the time.

    Campus Safety

    Extremely Safe campus, there are plenty of on campus officers cursing around campus along with plenty of escape routes.

    Greek Life

    They have plenty of Greek sonorities to join. I personally avoided them because of their parting and drinking habits, which are something I do not wish to take a part of, despite the school recommending these types of organizations.

    Clubs and Activities

    This university offers Soccer, Football, Swimming, and etc. There are just too many activities and clubs for me to name them all. If you want a full list simply type University of North Texas in the search bar at Collegeboard.org.

    Great for these types of students

    This college is great for student who love big crowds, and enjoy learning from taking notes.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is the UNT bond fire that takes place once a year. It's where thousands of students gather around the biggest bond first in Texas, maybe even the nations. This takes place before the homecoming football game.

    Bang for the buck

    They offer the most for the very least. You can do your research at collegeboard.org yourself if you don't believe me. They offer free counseling, a pharmacy, a free gym membership, tutoring, student assistants, and much more. I'm considering transferring because of the big university isn't really my preferred preference.I feel it restricts my learning and therefore my grades as well. Either way I might get lose the opportunity to finish my freshmen year. I finished the first semester here but I cannot afford to pay the rest of my housing which may lead to the cancellation of all my classes during the 2nd semester. If i can't afford this college seeing as this is once of the cheapest universities how could I have any hopes of transferring to another.

    What to do for fun

    There are plenty of thing to do here. From going to the gym to playing soccer, there are just numerous of clubs with almost every sport you can think of. Also if you are into listening to excerpts and musicians preform they offer some type of orchestrated event almost everyday through out the day. Last but not least they offer fun get-togethers so you can relax and socialize.

    Food and Dining

    Food and Dining is actually pretty amazing for the most part. They offer a vegan cafeteria and 5 others if I'm correct. My favorite personally is the Chick Fil-a on campus.

    Dorm Life

    The Dorm life kinda isn't the best to be honest. The dorms are kinda small and secluded, especially in victory. The transportation for people who walk are buses, but unfortunately buses stop running after 5pm. This is a very big campus, once you visit it you will understand.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic difficulty honestly isn't hard for the most part, but this was my freshmen year and I had classes I really didn't see the use of so my grade suffered as a result.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you like the feel of a big huge class room instead of a one on one learning experience. Know whether you like a small or large university before apply simply by visiting universities.

    In three sentences

    This College is a very diverse college. It can offer a variety of opportunities while maintaining an affordable price. If I had to rate this college 1 out of 10 considering its teaching methods and effectiveness I would rate it an 7 or 8.

    Greek Life

    There are no greek clubs yet.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs being started up and the list will grow from year to year.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for students who don't want the big university life, the students who'd rather be in a calm environment and want to live close to the Dallas area.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition is low because there aren't any dorms so you'll save money while still getting a real university education.

    What to do for fun

    The campus is small so there aren't many things to do as you'd find at a big university. You can join or start clubs, make friends at the student lounge, or occasionally join a soccer game some students have.

    Food and Dining

    The food sold at the cafe can be a bit pricey but you get quality meals. There are many choices to be made and all are delicious.

    There are no dorms at UNT Dallas yet.

    Academic Rigor

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is one of the best priced colleges in the state of Texas. As I said earlier, for the money, your education quality can't be beat here.

    What to do for fun

    You can attend all sorts of games--basketball, football, and most other sports. Denton has lots of music venues and several good bars, if you are of that age. There are music festivals and arts festivals. Also, the Denton town square is a really cool place to go. UNT's jazz lab bands are also great to listen to.

    Food and Dining

    There are multiple cafeterias on campus with options for almost any type of food you could think of. There is a vegan cafeteria for those so inclined. I went to Champs cafeteria, which is attached to Victory. They had delicious pizza.

    Dorm Life

    I lived in Victory and Traditions Hall(s) on campus. Dorm life can be fun. Victory was very nice and new. Traditions, while not as new, was nice enough--I had a very roomy private room.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of my undergraduate core classes were pretty easy. You didn't have to attend and could still pull off a B or an A. My concentration courses in Accounting were rigorous and while some could have been a little more challenging, over all they prepared me for a career in accounting.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply as early as you can, you'll have a better chance at scholarships. Visit the campus and explore the town of Denton--it's a pretty cool place that most people dismiss. Don't let people convince you that University of North Texas is a small community college that is not very hard. There are 36,000 students here and many nationally, if not world recognized programs.

    In three sentences

    UNT has great career opportunities for everyone and the price tag, while still shocking, is much less than other universities, especially when considering the quality of education received. School spirit is great, especially this year with our football team going to a bowl game. I just got into the graduate school here and look forward to the same opportunity--phenomenal teachers at a reasonable price.

    Campus Safety

    I go to the Rec center around 10 PM and I feel completely safe. I've never even gotten close to being threatened or afraid for my life. People are always walking around and the campus is well lit everywhere. If something were to go wrong, the authorities aren't very far.

    Greek Life

    They have a variety of different chapters people can join for different reasons. I personally don't like them because they are always asking for donations in the library mall and they are generally annoying to me.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs to do here. Even if you decide to join in the middle of the year, they are accepting to anyone that wants to join. Everyone is always happy to whatever you have to bring to the table. This is a really accepting campus.

    Great for these types of students

    People that enjoy being environmentally concious, open-minded, and tolerant to others. Basically it's a pretty hipster campus.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Fireworks and cannons always go off every time we score in a football game. Which, is cool, but I feel as though my tuition dollars would be best spent not going up in flames. We wear green on fridays and if you take a picture of yourself on instagram you could win $50. There's also a bonfire during homecoming. It's pretty large and quite impressive.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel I got the university experience without going homeless. If you have a scholarship, than it's even better. Also, they're building a new union, which looks pretty cool. But that means that there's always construction going on.

    What to do for fun

    Fry street has a lot of restaurants and is close to UNT, but about a mile away is the Square. The square has little shops and antique stores that are cute. But anything more interesting than that would require a car.

    Food and Dining

    My first week my stomach always hurt because I wasn't used to eating so much processed food. But the taste is generally good and there's a vegan cafeteria for those with those dietary needs. Pretty good variety of vegetables on the salad bar but it gets boring after awhile.

    Dorm Life

    There's no communal bathroom which is a plus. The toilet and shower is connected by another room; so you share with 2 other people. This creates a quieter environment for sleeping and studying. Laundry is also free which is a MAJOR plus. There's tile on the floor and the beds are pretty comfy.

    Academic Rigor

    My first semester I took all core classes so i might not be a good judge. It wasn't as bad as all my AP teachers said it would be. I felt prepared for college, but it's harder than high school. The teachers do care about your success, but they don't spoon feed information like high school teachers do. I feel I have learned things in my first semester that have changed the way I used to see the world.

    Tips for prospective students

    Really look into scholarships because tiny fees here and there add up. Get a planner and write down all the dates that the professor gives in the syllabus. Invest in a good pair of sneakers because there's a lot of walking around. And don't worry too much about the work load; take baby steps.

    In three sentences

    It's not only my home but where I found myself. It's where I work hard and it pays off. No matter the mistakes I make in my life, choosing this school wasn't one of them.

    Awful, I was matched with someone who is a complete opposite of me for my roommate. We have nothing in common, he likes to party also and comes in almost every night after 3:00AM, Also room changes here are impossible because their website is down and no one will work with you to change rooms. Awful experiance

    Academic Rigor

    In smaller classes the professors work with you extremely well, in larger classes the material taught is rushed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Please do not take to many hours your first semester! You will be overwhelmed and will feel like you are constantly studying. Do not take classes after 5:00PM, if you are like me you will not be able to function fully. Lastly make sure (if you live in a dorm) that you get to know your room mate! It will make a lot of difference.

    Great for these types of students

    It's definitely a Music and Art college. You will run into a lot of these types of people.

    What to do for fun

    They definitely have a lot of clubs that you can join depending on your interest. If you get yourself out there, I guarantee you'll find something fun to do.

    Food and Dining

    The food was actually good considering it was cafeteria food.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life can be enjoyable if you get along with your roommates. Always make sure if you have a problem with them to try and resolve it and talk to your RA before things escalate.

    Tips for prospective students

    Parking on campus is close to impossible so I recommend riding your bike as often as possible. Make sure to join clubs and be active in the community.

    Clubs and Activities

    As a freshman, it is best to join at least one organization. Make your freshman year awesome. If you're going to live in the dorms, apply to be part of the hall's association or any other on-campus organizations.

    Food and Dining

    Cafeteria food is a hit-or-miss, but I can tell you that Bruce has the best lunch and dinner. Never tried their breakfast though. Be sure to check out Maple's cafeteria. Although it is a vegan cafeteria, don't be scared to try their breakfast. They serve the best pancakes, and if you're lucky they make chocolate chip pancakes.

    Dorm Life

    I live in Maple hall right now and I am liking the intimate and chill atmosphere. It is occasionally noisy after quite hours but it's bearable and not as terrible as some halls.

    Food and Dining

    The food at UNT is great! With the meal plan, one has access to all the cafeterias on campus, which server phenomenally tasting food. Then, you add the fact that there are a various number of great restaurants and fast food places surrounding UNT to dine.

    The classes are well organized and with little to no problems whatsoever. Communication and interaction with the professors is made easy. Professors love to help you if you seek their help.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be shy when coming to the UNT. Simply become a part of one of the hundreds of organizations the University has to offer and one will easily get along with people and create new friends! And also, as a first year, having the meal plan is an excellent choice giving you the ability to not only consume the great food the cafeteria's have to offer, but to meat new people and socialize.

    The University of North Texas is the place to aim for if you are aiming to attend the best music school in the country and if you're interested in a great engineering department.

UNT is definitely a great university to spend your four years.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many things to do for fun here at UNT. All a student has to do is look for them, there are dozens of posters spread around the campus with different opportunities to do something. they recently hosted a meet and greet pretty much for the men and women's basketball teams in the super pit. also if you ever want to do something try starting at your residence hall, there is usually something fun to do as a group or you could always just play pool or ping pong in the lobby.

    Food and Dining

    The food is pretty good. Bruce has the best macaroni by far ! West, Maple, Kerr, Victory and Bruce all have different styled cafeterias. I made it my mission to eat at all of them and I did and they were all pretty awesome.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is awesome! I stay in Kerr and I love it. there is always some interesting activity going on in the lobby, I recently jut participated in a fal fashion show. they also set up intramural teams for the resident halls so If you like sports but cant fully commit to the travel teams this works out perfect for you.

    Academic Rigor

    I currently take six classes (17 hours) and the academic rigor is not that bad if you maintain a decent schedule, don't overcommit to things, and pay attention t your deadlines and not procrastinating

    The only thing i really get form our cafeteria is ice cream and something to drink. The food is TERRIBLE! Idk maybe i am over exaggerating but if you eat here , it won't be anything like home. I usually go to other dorms to eat so i am satisfied.

    Dorm Life

    My dorm is one of the oldest here ( I stay at West Hall) and so far it is not bad at all. I have came from better conditions,but they keep it clean and the people here are friendly! I have one roommate and that was a personality shock because we never talk. I stay out of her way and she stays out of mine.

    Campus Safety

    I never feel unsafe here. There are campus police officers always on patrol, there are emergency call centers on every corner, and there's this awesome service called e-Ride that runs as a shuttle late at night so if you don't feel safe walking, you can call them and they'll take you where you want to go.

    Clubs and Activities

    I'm pretty sure there's a club for just about everything here. and if there's not, you can start one!

    What to do for fun

    The University always has some sort of something going on. There's concerts, movie screenings, mixers, all kinds of things. You'll hear about them or read about them, because they have these little signs up all over campus when something is happening. Off campus, you should go to the Square. It's downtown Denton, where the County Courthouse is. There are tons of little shops and restaurants on the Square, and the Courthouse Lawn is a very popular place for people from Denton (not just UNT students) to hang out.

    Food and Dining

    It's a lot better than cafeteria food in high school. Personal opinion: Bruce is the best dining hall on campus. It's also the most popular. And if you don't have a meal plan, there's the Chat, which has Taco Bell, Chick-fil-A, and other food. There's also Fry Street, which has a TON of places to eat, super close to campus.

    Dorm Life

    I loved my dorm. (The community bathrooms aren't as scary as everyone says.) Every dorm is different, though. Some have suites, some have community bathrooms. It just depends on where you stay. Either way, though, it's fun. The RAs are awesome, they care about you, and they try to make sure you're never bored. There's always something going on in the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Of course, it varies from class to class, but for the most part, the classes are engaging and challenging in some way. Not necessarily hard, but challenging. You probably won't be able to slide by without putting any work into your classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved. It doesn't matter what it is, there's something for everyone here. Also, make sure you know where your classes are BEFORE they start. I would suggest walking your classes a couple of times before school starts, because no matter how well you think you know the campus that first year, everything looks a lot different with a ton of students walking around.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a great school. The people here are friendly, the staff is helpful, and the professors I've had care about their students. It's definitely one of those places that you won't get anything out of if you don't put anything into it, so get involved in something.

    Food and Dining

    The campus is surrounded by different food industries that are walking distance. We have a variety of choices from fast foods such as McDonalds, Subway, Jack in the Box, Chipotle, Yogurtland and even a sushi bar.

    Dorm Life

    The halls have special events so you can interact and familiarize yourself with your neighbors. All of the residence halls are in close proximity of the campus, all but Victory, which is our athletes hall.

    Academic Rigor

    Personally, as a biology major, the courses are rigorous. It is not because the professor doesn't do a good job at introducing the material; it is simply because the material itself is difficult. This shouldn't be an issue if you complete your work and study.

    Tips for prospective students

    No matter what University you do decide to attend remember to keep a planner, because they come in handy when you less expect them to do so. Also, never run on a small amount of sleep; you should make sure to take naps if they are necessary. Also, there is absolutely no reason to pull all nighters because you have enough time to complete your assignments and they are also given to you ahead of time. Therefore, there should be no need for the all nighters.

    In three sentences

    Personally, North Texas is my ideal school because of the size of our campus and student life. I enjoy the short distance of the buildings as well as the familiar faces that I see ever so often. It's perfect in the sense that it provides security and a close knit community.

    The foods is much better the the regular high school cafeteria food. i actually taste really good. The only bad thing about it is that it is the same food everyday.

    Dorm life is different from what i am use to. I grew up in a room all to myself and with my family. When i move into my dorm it was weird falling asleep with someone you really don't know, and to share restrooms with the girls in your hall is different too. it is an interest feeling but i don't think it is bad. you get to experience the full collage experience

UNT has that too you can find places from a nice tree with shade outside to the indoor ac inside.

    There were plenty of organizations for all kinds of different ethnic groups, religions, interest, and hobbies. Getting involved on campus seems very easy and like a very cool way to be involved. Also, a cool way to make friends.

    Bang for the buck

    It is ok, they went up on their prices twice, since I started. I just bought my books online. The Dallas classes are less expensive.

    What to do for fun

    I didn't do much, I am a parent, so I would leave home right after class.

    Food and Dining

    They do have great food!

    Dorm Life

    I did not stay at a dorm

    Tips for prospective students

    Review the instructors before taking them. The denton instructors usually do not offer extra credit, only lecture, and test; so be sure to study, and work hard.

    In three sentences

    Some, not all, of the instructors do not care enough. The business advising is great to work with. The Dallas campus is much better in their form of teaching, hands on.

    I love hanging out in the student union. You can grab some chic-fil-a or taco bell, even some sushi, and hang out in the 1 o'clock lounge and take a nap on the bean bags, or just people watch. There's usually something going on in the union, like presentations or people recruiting for their clubs. It's pretty interesting.

    What to do for fun

    Attend all the sporting events. Football games are always super fun and energetic, and it's always fun to dress up in green to show your school spirit.

    Food and Dining

    The dining halls at UNT are awesome. There is always a huge variety of foods, and it's unlimited, so you can eat until you can't eat anymore. Not to mention, the food is actually GOOD!

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life was one of the best experiences I've had so far at UNT. It's sort of like being at a summer camp all year round. You have the ability to meet so many awesome new people and living just a few feet away from them is always a plus.

    Academic Rigor

    UNT pushes students to go further than they would have pushed themselves. All of my professors so far are very knowledgable about the subjects they teach, and for the most part, are very enthusiastic and want the students to actually learn what they are teaching.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved on campus. It will help you to meet new friends and really feel comfortable here. Living on campus makes UNT feel like more than just a school, but a home; a little community where you live with the people you go to school with. It's a really awesome experience.

    In three sentences

    I love UNT. There is so many activities to get students involved. I feel very at home here.

    Campus Safety

    I would say the overall campus safety is good. But there have been a few incidents since I have been on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    The fact that Denton has a big city feel but is smaller than nearby places such as Dallas is nice.

    Bang for the buck

    I'd imagine the costs are similar to other universities that are around the same size has UNT. The addition of a new business building and the future addition of a new university union will add to the total costs.

    What to do for fun

    For those who enjoy the nightlife, Fry Street is on the campus and is a street that has many different bars and small eateries that you can go to.

    Food and Dining

    There are many places on and around campus that offer different types of food. For instance, there is a Chick-fil-a in the union.

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived on campus so I am not qualified to have an opinion on the dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    I am a business major and I find all of the business courses to be challenging.

    Tips for prospective students

    The campus is pretty big so it is a good idea to try and group your classes as close together as possible when your completing your core curriculum.

    University of North Texas represents a school of diversity, knowledge, and empowerment for their staff and students. I believe that choosing this university was an supreme choice, not only financially, but educational wise.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of all that UNT has to offer! There are so many opportunities afforded to students, no matter what degree plan. So do your homework, find out what's available to you and use it. After all, it's all paid for by student tuition anyway.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a great school for either commuters or on-campus living. Denton is such a great college town, and is located perfectly, with a short drive to small country living, or busy downtown areas. Also excellent academic programs.

    Campus Safety

    Campus is always well lit, even in the middle of the night. There are plenty of police officers patrolling the borders of campus, and there are plenty 911 EMERGENCY posts scattered around campus. The campus itself is incredibly safe. However, the apartments outside of UNT can be dangerous. In the first semester I was at UNT, there were multiple robberies and attempted assaults. Be careful crossing past Hickory at night.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is incredibly popular at UNT. While I did not participate, I could easily tell you the fun of being a part of a sorority or fraternity at UNT. The thriving Greek life at UNT provides so many networking opportunities that will not only enhance your college experience but will also enhance your chances of making it big in the real world after graduation. I missed out greatly by not joining a fraternity.

    Clubs and Activities

    Most of the normal clubs cater more towards the people who've been there for a while, and sometimes it's difficult to get involved and become one of those veterans. I was a member of the debate team and found it hard to feel welcomed in, even after I had great success at the first tournament I went to with them. If you're going to join a club, be sure to stick with it. People are a lot friendlier than they seem. You just have to remember that as we're all students, we're all usually pretty tired. I wish someone had told me that coming in.

    Great for these types of students

    This University is great for everyone.

    UNT is primarily a music school and there is one thing that sets UNT apart from every other school in Texas. In the Student Union, the 1 'o clock Jazz band plays just outside of the Einstein Bros from several hours at a time. If you've got spare time in between classes, they're certainly worth your time to stop buy. Every other month, a local print shop makes enormous posters and sells them on campus. They're mostly reprints of movie-promotion posters, scenes from famous TV shows and other movies. They're cheap and pretty cool to decorate your room with. At the beginning of the Fall semester, UNT creates an enormous bonefire out of wooden pallets and other colleges' pride-shirts. It's an event you surely do not want to miss and nearly the entire campus will be there. Every Friday is Mean Green Pride Day. Everyone wears green to show their pride in the Eagle! UNT has a Free-Speech area just outside of the Union. There's usually a radical Christian man out there who enjoys arguing with everyone. Even if you're Christian, he's fun to have a conversation with when he's there.

    Bang for the buck

    You get the quality of any competitive school in Texas (UT/A&M) but in a different location and for thousands of dollars less. Well worth your time and money.

    What to do for fun

    Aside from local parties, Fry street is always pretty lively even if you're not old enough to drink. Most of the restaurants in Denton are open late to cater to the college area. For me, though, the campus is wonderful to skate/bmx on when it's empty. Not much else in the area unfortunately.

    Food and Dining

    For the meal-plan deal, you really can't complain. While most people do complain about the food, I can promise it isn't as bad as everyone says. The main issue is just that you eat it so often that you get sick of it. The food is good and there are plenty of healthy options at any of the several campus cafeterias.

    Dorm Life

    All of the dorms have a certain sense of homeliness to them. Kerr especially has a very tight-knit community to ensure you never feel out of place. Overall, no matter where you stay you're going to feel welcome and appreciated.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes, as with any college, are as difficult as you make them. However, you may get a professor that just isn't good at teaching. If this happens, just utilize the resources given to you in your tuition. With just a bit of effort, straight-A's are a breeze. That's also coming from someone who took all honors courses. Like I said, it's all as hard as you make it.

    Tips for prospective students

    As with any college: Attend all of your classes, focus, don't party (too hard), do your work ON TIME, and don't lose sight of why you're attending college in the first place. Also, STAY ORGANIZED. On the topic of turning in work on time: Most professors have deadlines that are completely out of their control. The deadlines for most assignments are department wide and are non-negotiable on turning in late work. It gets you to shape up your timeliness, and is a well-working system. Stay on top of your assignments! When it comes to struggling in class, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE LEARNING CENTER/RESOURCES. You pay for them with your tuition and they work wonders.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas is truly a green light to greatness. The university staff goes out of their way to ensure each student gets the most out of their education by providing every necessary resource to guarantee success as a scholar. The University of North Texas helped me grow quickly as a student, and shaped me into a better adult quicker than I had anticipated.

    There are many dorms on campus and they all have a different environment so that each student that lives in the dorms can find the one that fits them the best. The resident assistances make every student feel at home and give them the tools to succeed in their classes. I stayed in the dorms for two years and I loved it the entire time!

    Just like any university, there will be hard classes and easy classes. UNT has a wide range of academic rigor and also a wide range of teaching techniques. Because of this, I think every student can find teachers that fit to their teaching need.

    Campus Safety

    There are some occurrences of violence such as stealing or acts of aggression, but the Police Department keep us updated whenever anything happens. From my past year there, I only remember maybe 3 reports of violence. I feel safe on campus. Obviously though, you never want to walk alone across campus or around the city at night. Always try and have someone you trust to go with you. It is just safer that way.

    Greek Life

    I am not part of Greek life so I cannot honestly say anything about Greek life on campus. If you aren't in Greek life, it's okay, most of the school isn't. If you are in Greek life, you have many activities and have loads of opportunities to make friends.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are hundreds of clubs and activities to participate in throughout the year. One of my main regrets is not joining a club....JOIN A CLUB!

    Find the Albino squirrel!! Here at UNT, we also (tend to) snap instead of clapping, other than at football games.

    Bang for the buck

    Of course I would have preferred it to be cheaper, but it is definitely a reasonable price compared to other universities in the state. They are always holding activities in the Library Mall and on Freedom Hill, giving away many free things. They also provide an amazing library, many computer labs (both Macs and PCs), a clean and up to date rec center, and nice buildings. I can't wait to see the new union!

    What to do for fun

    Get involved in activities. For me, I played open court volleyball and played Co-rec intramural sand volleyball. I had a blast doing both and met people through both. Joining clubs or intramural sports or even classes at the rec were really fun and a good way to slowly get to know other people with similar interests.

    Food and Dining

    Thank God for the Campus Chat. Bruce's food was great, but all of the other cafeterias' food was not the best. It is just like high school cafeteria food. The Campus Chat had some good food such as Chick-fil-a and Taco Bell.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is exactly how I expected it-it is small but cozy. However, I did think I would have known my hall better. Walls are thin, so talk quietly if you don't want other people listening in on your conversation.

    Academic Rigor

    Every course I took was challenging, but some were easier than I expected. As long as you pay attention, take notes, and do homework, for the most part, you will be okay. Just study/review every day!

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that you go to the library everyday, even if it is just to look over your notes or to re-write your notes or look over your planner to see what is coming up. I really wish I would have gone to the library a lot more so I knew when everything was going to happen so I could have planned better. I also wish I would have talked to my professors more, so make sure you really get to know your professor, even if you are in a larger class. Lastly, make friends. Become involved in multiple groups or clubs that spark your interest. That is another of my regrets.

    In three sentences

    UNT has an amazing atmosphere that is full of different environments and opportunities. The professors, as long as you talk with them, will help you out with anything and everything they can. It was the best decision I made when choosing colleges.

    The dorm life was a waste of money. I didn't get involved in any organizations through living at the dorms. Crumley has very little activity. The dorm parking is terrible.

    Academic Rigor

    I think the claseses at UNT are challenging but possible.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't procrastinate. Keep up with assignements and work. Go to class.

    In three sentences

    Unt provides lots of opportunities for its student. There is a lot of diversity on the UNT campus. The faculty and teachers are very educated and helpful from my experience.

    Campus Safety

    The campus if safe, and you feel a sense of security, knowing there are many lamps and good people around even after dark.

    What to do for fun

    Simply walking around campus is fun, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery. Also check out the media library, they have movies, video games, and more. Sometimes there are activities open to everyone, sponsored by certain clubs or organizations.

    Food and Dining

    The food is delicious, and they dining halls are kept nice. Some halls are better than others, and there is a vegan dining hall that serves especially nice food.

    Dorm Life

    Life in the dorms is fun. The Residence Hall Association members find fun things to do, during the week and on weekends. The events are also a very nice way to kick back after studying.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are very well versed in their subject, and help you understand as well. Studying is sometimes hard, and certain subjects you may just not understand, so tutoring may help, but you will come out feeling you know the material in the end.

    Tips for prospective students

    Learn the best route from point A to point B to maximize time and efficiency. The uphills and downhill treks are worth it once you figure out the fastest way to your study groups and classes.

    In three sentences

    Simply taking a walk around campus at certain times of day you can feel it is calm, but not abandoned or lifeless. The people are fun, nice and engaging, and the classes are challenging. Overall a very good campus.

    What to do for fun

    On campus there are always advertisements floating around for free movies, comedy shows, talent shows etc., but one can also go to the Square, which is a mile off campus. Not much else to do if you don't have a car or a bike, but it's enough to keep you busy from school work.

    Food and Dining

    There are a few cafeterias on campus but the food is mediocre at best. Maple is the vegan dining hall, which has the best quality of food. Bruce has the second and West and Kerr are both at the bottom of the barrel. The Union cafeteria or Chat has much better options but is not free with the meal plans.

    Dorm Life

    I lived in the fun dorm on campus, Bruce, my freshman year, and I loved it. The people are friendly and there is always an event going on you can partake in. The staff there try to make your stay enjoyable. Sharing one room with another person and a communal bathroom are things to get used to.

    Academic Rigor

    It's all about what you want to get out of your education. The classes, depending on your major, are demanding but not overwhelming. Regardless, it's up to the individual how much work will be put in to studying and class attendance. One can get by on the bare minimum, though, if they find it necessary.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be responsible with your time and actions. The staff on campus are very helpful when dealing with a financial or academic problem. I would suggest utilizing all of the resources on campus because you'll be paying for them anyway. The Recreation Center, the libraries, tutoring are all examples of this.

    In three sentences

    The University is a small campus and very warm and welcoming. Many fine arts programs here are extremely good, require lots of work, and are not for the faint of heart. This school has many programs, most of which are top notch.

    Campus Safety

    There are lights everywhere on campus and safety/call centers are generously spread around campus. I have never felt in danger on campus at any time of the day or night.

    Greek Life

    The greek presence on campus is very minute, and really only people in greek life deal with the elements of greek life. I've never been to a frat/lady frat function and I've never felt a need or desire too. The people in the program are not a good representative for the college.

    Clubs and Activities

    I never joined any real clubs, but there is a ton of student organizations for all sorts of people, and they put on awesome shows and activities all the time across campus that're sweet to stop by at sometimes.

    Great for these types of students

    Education orientated, cost conscious, very open-minded, looking for a school without a (real/significant) greek presence, looking for a school where you can be anything you want and accepted (gay, vampiric, wear a plant on your head), environmentally conscious students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    UNT is not a sports driven school, so the traditions pushed by the school really aren't that apparent in day to day life. When you walk to class you might stumble upon monks, breakdancers, anarchists, excellent musicians, contact juggling and unicyclers though, which is way cooler.

    Bang for the buck

    You're paying less for a higher education than you'd receive at other universities.

    What to do for fun

    Denton is an awesome town full of life and music. There's a ton of festivals for music and art, and just by walking around town you can typically stumble upon something wild, like a wake-boarding competition on Fry street.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeterias leave something to be desired, but they are quite filling and are tasty. It can be hard to eat healthy at the cafeterias though. The dining on campus is great though. There is a wide variety of affordable food options that are typically pretty good.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are very relaxed and in general have a great atmosphere and are filled with fascinating people. Bruce is the best by far.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging and stimulating, but quite achievable. Though there are many classes offered that are extremely difficult.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to do well, the number one thing you must do is go to class and actually finish assignments. This shows your teachers that you are interested and willing to put forth the effort for the class.

    In three sentences

    This is a fine university with a top north staff who are interested in your education and typically very willing to help on all fronts with whatever you need.

    Good luck with parking. If you get a General parking pass, your parking is limited to far away parking lots. However, if you park in the lot by the stadium, there is the Mean Green bus that takes you all around campus. You will need to plan classes according to the transport schedules, though.

    The University of North Texas offers activities like intramural sports, festivals, clubs, and organizations. There are also lots of restaurants nearby including a mall that's not too far from campus. Another option to have fun in would be The Square in Denton, which has lots of businesses around.

    Food and Dining

    There are lots of cafeterias to choose from. They even have an all vegan cafeteria and the others have a wide variety of dishes to choose from.

    Dorm Life

    I lived in College Inn for a year and the atmosphere was great even though others said they were the worst dorms. Though the rest of the dorms are definitely better.

    Academic Rigor

    Most of the classes I've taken were taught very well so it felt like the rigor was not so bad. Although, there are certain classes that are very difficult and constant studying is necessary to keep up with the pace.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students should be okay as long as they keep up with studying and work. After that, there are lots of places to visit and have fun.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas offers lots of outside activities. It is filled with students that are motivated. The atmosphere is one that inspires others to persevere and succeed in school.

    What to do for fun

    There's so many things to do at UNT. They host many free event throughout campus so pay close attention to the signs posted with different programs and activities.

    Food and Dining

    The food is mediocre for me since I come from a house who cooks with a lot of seasoning and spice. But I have to keep in mind that they cook to appeal to everyone's taste buds, so its satisfying.

    Dorm Life

    I enjoyed my dorm stay very much. They've become my family. I encourage every freshman to stay in the dorms at least your first year because that's where I've found some of my closest friends.

    Academic Rigor

    To me the work itself isn't very challenging it's just time consuming compared to high school class work. But if you show forth effort you won't be disappointed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Learn to do things in moderation. Your academics come first and you will be tempted by all of the activities UNT offers, but remember your purpose in coming to college and that be your deciding factor.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a great school with many opportunities and willing students who want to succeed. It is very family oriented and encourages lifetime relationships. The professors and staff are all concerned with the success of the students.

    Campus Safety

    Safety precautions are in place, including Denton police officers, but I believe there is ALWAYS room for improvement

    Greek Life

    Know nothing about it

    Clubs and Activities

    There are TONS to choose from. My schedule does not allow too much time for these extracurriculars but I am part of the Forensic Science Club and it is very involved on campus and in the community.

    Bang for the buck

    Yes...yes...yes!!! What you pay for is what you get! Most services on campus are free because the fee's are already in your tuition, including testing materials, so take advantage because it is a WONDERFUL thing.

    What to do for fun

    I am a commuter, non-traditional student who lives in Fort Worth so I don't usually get to attend school functions. There are tons of gatherings and organizations to have fun with throughout the year

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of homemade and fast food choices. Pretty decent food all the way around but there could be more snack and HEALTHY snack (grab and go) options available at ALL food cafeteria's.

    Dorm Life

    I live OFF campus

    Academic Rigor

    Depends on the major I'm sure. I am a Biochemistry major with a minor in Biology and I can definitely say that the science route at UNT is one of the greatest! The grades in these classes are NOT handed out, they MUST be earned; and the knowledge obtained from degree courses will definitely stick with you in order to aid in your desired field. Every penny is worth it!

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have the option, do NOT go to a community college first. Spend all 4 years needed to get your degree from the same university. It helps with timing of not only your personal academic career but also with the needed paperwork and stress of transferring.

    In three sentences

    A wonderfully diverse university. Great degree options with faculty who actually care about the outcome of their students.

    Campus Safety

    Crime has been an issue lately and the UNT police cannot seem to prevent some of the serious crimes that have been happening on and near campus lately. However, they will almost always catch your parking violations. But do not count on the police to be sitting at the places where it is known to be the most dangerous (certain parts of fry street late at night, the corners of the east side of campus) and instead walk with friends on these parts of campus until they start putting policemen there. Take note of the emergency stations where you can press a button and call for help. Though these are too few for many to feel safe walking at night.

    Clubs and Activities

    UNT has an organization for every student and if not, they can be formed.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT has two sides. One is great for community-oriented students who live active lives of social involvement. The other is for serious musicians who will have amazing opportunity to live their dreams.

    Bang for the buck

    With free printing, access to concerts (symphonies/band performances/other artists), university funded celebrations that give out free food and UNT gear, a 24 hour library, most other facilities including the student union open late, movies/popcorn, tutoring and opportunity to tutor, sporting events, and so much more, UNT definitely softens the blow to your bank account by providing for such a great student life.

    What to do for fun

    Fry street offers many places for students to mingle and relax and eat delicious food. The University offers student get-togethers most nights of the week and offers many many clubs and organizations in which you can participate.

    Food and Dining

    The 5 dining halls are open convenient hours and serve a wide variety of quality local foods. I definitely recommend the dining plans here.

    Dorm Life

    VERY LOUD. If at all possible, get a private dorm or rent an apartment. Otherwise it isn't worth the money.

    Academic Rigor

    Easy work, but time consuming. Professors of core classes seem to expect very little from their students.

    Tips for prospective students

    If possible arrange for a private dorm because otherwise, you will have no privacy and ability to study uninterrupted. Also, take advantage of the free printing to print out all notes/syllabi/readings.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas is very diverse and makes presenting opportunity a priority. This university prioritizes social activity and community involvement and makes sure every student has the opportunity to improve. However, since the social scene is so strongly encouraged, there are few quiet undisturbed places to study beyond the library and, especially in the dorms, one is almost guaranteed to be interrupted by somebody.

    The campus staff and students are always busy conducting and planning some type of school participation activities. There is so much more to UNT besides sports. There are countless international as well as local activities available

    Food and Dining

    There are several excellent choices available on and around campus. If you are feeling a little hungry, then you will not have any problems satisfying your taste buds at UNT

    Dorm Life

    I am a commuter. So, I do not know what the dorm life entails. However, I have seen and toured these facilities, and you would not be disappointed.

    Academic Rigor

    UNT will challenge you physically as well as mentally. Come join our school and see if you are up to the challenge.

    Tips for prospective students

    UNT is worth the time and effort. There is no other school that will bend over backwards to ensure you receive an education. You are not along on this journey. The college has a home type feeling: one big happy family.

    In three sentences

    The university has everything that is needed to accommodate and help me to reach my academic goals. Everyone is welcome at this facility. The greatest feature is their willingness to accept and assist veterans and their families.

    It is fun to develop your own traditions with friends. Spirit Friday occurs once a week and is where everyone on campus wheres green. Pizza Friday is a tradition made amongst my friends and I.

    Buying a meal plan at the school if you commute and have to stay at school all day is a way to save money and eat at an all you can eat buffet.

    What to do for fun

    The University of North Texas has many activities and fun things to do around campus. The Union and recreation center are two hot spots for activities on campus

    The food with Bruce Dining Hall is great! With each meal in the meal plan you can eat there and have an all you can eat buffet.

    Dorm Life

    I have not stayed in a dorm room before. However, I hardly ever hear any complaints about them!

    Academic Rigor

    UNT is not as academically challenging as it is psychologically challenging to actually stop procrastinating and do work and study the material.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to bed early and get sleep. Going to school sleepy is the equivalent to sleeping half way through a movie at a theater that you paid tickets to go see.

    In three sentences

    While not the cheapest college out there, the University of North Texas provides so many opportunities for fun and education that it outweighs any potential downfalls there are to choosing it, even though there are very few, if any, in my opinion. It is located in Denton, which is a college town for college students. So much is within walking distance, and if it's not, we have a bus route to take you there.

    What to do for fun

    There is never any downtime when it comes to fun. There is near literally a program or activity going on every day somewhere on campus that 99% of people are allowed to join in on. From rock climbing to witnessing the number one marching band in the college football play at Apogee Stadium, we have it.

    Food and Dining

    Dining options range from sushi to burgers, and everything in between. Several dining halls offering meals to satisfy a carnivore's or a vegan's appetite. In fact, there is even a wholly vegan cafeteria built onto one of the dorms!

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are wonderful. The Resident Advisors are a blast. They like to have fun (many are also students after all!), and there are constantly activities and programs going on to keep stress from accumulating.

    Academic Rigor

    While not the toughest, classes here are challenging, but most maintain an atmosphere that encourages learning as opposed to one that prevents it. Teachers, faculty, Supplemental Instructors, and Teaching Assistants are always on duty, so there's never a period unavailable if you need help for whatever reason.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early, and get your stuff done as soon as possible. It keeps you from getting stressed about it later on, and it looks good and feels good to get it out of the way once you can.

    In three sentences

    It is a wonderful college full of life, diversity, and solidarity that will keep any student, current and prospective, and their parents aching for more. There is always plenty to see and do, but there's always time and places to relax if the need comes. It is definitely a college I would recommend to anyone if you want to have fun, learn, and relax while still being able to earn your degree.

    Campus Safety

    The campus safety at UNT is pretty much the same as any college. Cops drive around non-stop and at night they are lined up by the bars standing by just in case something happens. There have been a few crime alerts but nothing too serious or something that doesn't happen anywhere. There will be crime no matter where you go but the crime safety at UNT is very good.

    Greek Life

    I have been to a couple greek houses and hung out with some fraternities. Overall I would not suggest joining a fraternity or sorority if you are trying to focus on school and keeping money in the bank. The fraternities and sorority's at UNT have only one focus while going to college and that is to get drunk. They do not help the community or their school as much as they should. The things you do with a fraternity or sorority is something you should be able to put on your resume, but that is not the case at UNT

    Clubs and Activities

    UNT has prety much every club and activity you can think of. From sports to water sports to gamers. I am in the soccer club and fishing club. Both are great and helps you meet new people and make new friends. I would suggest joining a club because it helps break the ice for meeting new people and creating great fun memories while going to college.

    Great for these types of students

    There are no types of students at UNT. Everyone is arms opened and ready to hang out with anyone. But UNT is great for students that want to do great in school and also have a social life. The best of both worlds. But it all comes down to you. How you handle things and keep track of school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There are really no unusual traditions or locations on campus. Those will be made with you're friends and the people you will meet at UNT. Traditions and locations on campus is something you will make on you're own and enjoy with a small group of great people you meet at UNT. Enjoy every small thing in college with you're friends because those memories will be the ones that stay with you forever.

    Bang for the buck

    If you decide to go to UNT you will get you're moneys worth. UNT has a very nice gym and health center. Campus is like any other campus, not much different. The classes are great and so is the education. UNT offers lots of opportunity's for you to make you're future bright. But lets get real, no matter what college you choose to go to it will be very expensive and trying to park around campus will be almost impossible.

    What to do for fun

    There is not much to do for fun around UNT. The main things are bowling, movies, and Fry Street for night life. Fry Street is always packed and you can never get a drink with in five minutes. There is also the Square which is kinda like Fry Street but less packed and more relaxed. Movie tavern is also a great and fun place. You can drink and eat with friend while watching a movie on the big screen. Other than that you can drive to either Forth Worth or Dallas for fun which is about an hour either way.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining on campus is not bad but not good either. Outside campus, Denton has pretty much everything. From steak houses to Italian restaurants to a ordinary deli. If you are looking for a great burrito, the best place around UNT is FreeBirds!. Great food and people that work there. Overall the food and dining around campus is great!

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived in a dorm at UNT but I hear nothing but bad things. All I hear is dorm life is miserable. From bad food, horrible roommate assignments, to quit hours. I would give the dorm life an overall grade of a C.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics at UNT are great. UNT is innovative and, in my opinion, is underrated. The professors here take a personal interest in the students, and I am enjoying an interactive education that I did not receive at my other, �¢����bigger name�¢���� schools. Every class I have taken at UNT I have learned a great deal of knowledge that I will need out in the field after I graduate. In conclusion, UNT cares a lot about their education.

    Tips for prospective students

    The main tip for prospective students is the make sure they keep focused on their school. New students will have this newly found freedom and sometimes get carried away and loose track of their responsibility, which is school. It is great to meet new people and make new friends but just keep in mind that school is first. School is you're future. Keep track of homework. It is very easy to loose track and get behind. Never get behind in college.

    In three sentences

    The University of North Texas has it's pros and cons like any other college. UNT's education quality, extracurricular activity's, and university resources are all great. I would give this university an overall grade of a B.

    Great for these types of students

    UNT is great for students who have complete parental support. If you are a student like me who doesn't really have a lot of monetary support from your parents, you will definitely struggle with trying to get money for school unless you have scholarships.

    Bang for the buck

    I personally feel that certain things in Denton and at UNT are overpriced, especially the housing and apartments.

    What to do for fun

    In Denton there isn't much to do out here. If you want to go experience nightlife most college kids just carpool to Dallas where they can go to as many clubs as they want.

    Food and Dining

    Your food experience depends on which dining hall you go to. Champs Cafeteria has the best food, but Kerr Hall food is not the best quality at all. You will definitely tell the difference.

    Dorm Life

    I did not like living in the dorm when I was a freshman. The dorms are overpriced for what you're getting and I personally don't like being around a lot of immature people which is basically the environment you're around the entire time at a dorm. I'm happy that I live in an apartment now.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are not hard you just have to make sure you always attend because if you don't your grade will surely suffer.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would say to make sure that you have your financial situation in order because unfortunately nowadays the financial aid office doesn't really help students if they don't have enough money to fund their college classes.

    You can sign up for alerts to your phone and email about any activity on campus, and they do not use it lightly. We are notified if anyone is so much as assaulted on campus, near or far. That gives you peace of mind knowing someone is always on the lookout and aware of the surroundings.

    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.

    Take a tour of the campus in the fall and winter months, it will help you better navigate the campus and you will not feel like you are baking under the sun as you walk. Either download the UNT app or get yourself a campus map. Talk to your advisors as often as possible.

    In three sentences

    I find this school to be ripe with opportunities and experiences, the teachers are very helpful and do try their best to help their students succeed. The campus though is a bit hard to navigate when first attending here and on occasion when you are going to buildings that are unfamiliar. This university is very affordable compared to other Texas Universities and that is something I know every student here appreciates.

    What to do for fun

    There is a lot of activities going on on campus, such as student clubs, but off campus isn't the most exciting.

    The dining halls are awesome! Vegan cafeteria? Hell yes.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are pretty typical for colleges, and a good amount of students live on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    UNT is respected as a very good school, but also does not have an overwhelming amount of homework.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you don't mind to much that you won't be really close to a big city, then this college would be great for you.

    Food and Dining

    The food is usually good. We have different cafeterias so it depends on what kind of mood you are in for something either super healthy, pizza, sandwiches or home style food.

    Dorm life has been better than I expected. You meet different people all the time with the activities dorms have planned. It helps if you have friends in the same dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    It has been hard to keep up with all my classes. Never take any free time studying for a big test for granted. You don't want to stay up late for not doing it earlier.

    Food and Dining

    the university has a food court in the popular student union area. It has 5 cafeterias which serve different foods. UNT even has the first all-vegan cafeteria in the nation. Different meal plans are available depending on what you need and are fairly priced.

    Each dorm has its own personality. Freshmen are required to live in a dorm. There are many different dorms; some are specific to upperclassmen.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes pertaining to my major are more rigorous than those classes which everyone has to take as university requirements. I personally found first-year, university required classes easy.

    In three sentences

    UNT is a good place to be. Most people are friendly and Denton is a good, small college town. From what I have heard, UNT has really grown over the past couple of years and is working to incorporate and promote green standards while doing so.

    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

    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.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm I lived in was private somewhat cramped however, very new and clean. The dorm was cramped so it forced me to leave and become social instead of sitting in the room all day.

    Academic Rigor

    Very challenging be sure to talk with your professors if you are having trouble. Challenge yourself take some courses you might be interested in, be sure to study 2-3 hours per class.

    Very good School with great opportunities to explore. However, parking has always been an issue for non-traditional students because of the large population of student body and employees. I love the fact that there aren't so many distractions from studying in Denton as well.

    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).

    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

    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.

    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.

    There are so many clubs, it's hard for anyone to not have a great time at UNT. There a GLAD (Gay and lesbian association of Denton) club, which is UNT's version of LGBT. There's an Anime Club, there's pretty much a club for everything.

    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.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There aren't many traditions on campus specifically because it is known more as a commuter school. However, that is changing every year and starting to grow in what is important to the school.

    Bang for the buck

    UNT is very well known for the quality of education provided for the little amount required. It increases every year (as with any school) but still manages to be lower than most.

    What to do for fun

    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.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeterias are AWESOME at UNT!!!! There isn't a limit to how much you can eat. No meal cards or specific amounts. Just go to any of the 5 cafeterias on campus while they are open and eat to your heart's content!

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is great at UNT. There are so many options to choose from and almost always something going on every day and night. Each residence hall also has many resources such as computers, study aides, and common rooms for hanging out.

    Academic Rigor

    Getting into your major classes gets hard! As I'm sure with every college education, it takes a lot of time and effort to get the grades you want. Don't expect an easy ride through UNT. You will be challenged in many ways including others not involving academics.

    Tips for prospective students

    Sign up for housing early and don't park where you are not allowed!

    There are many activities both on and around campus for any thing that a student is interested in: for Education majors there is Kappa Delta Pi, Student government, sorority's fraternity etc. In Denton there is a Mall and plenty of shopping centers, and almost anything you can think of. Dallas is only about 15 minute drive.

    Food and Dining

    The food is a bit pricey but good. There is multiple choices of places and different foods to eat. There is also a great coffee shop in the union center, not a Starbucks but defiantly good coffee.

    The professors make the classes interesting and fun, while helping you retain the information. The classes are not simple but the professors help to make the information easy to understand.

    Tips for prospective students

    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.

    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.

    Academic Rigor

    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.

    Tips for prospective students

    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.

    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

    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.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for very unique people. UNT is a very diverse school, so you are allowed to be yourself, no matter how that may be.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    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.

    Academic Rigor

    First year is easy academically, just a lot of homework and projects to do.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to manage your time wisely.

    In three sentences

    The campus is beatiful, not too big, but not too small. Teachers and staff here are very friendly. They have a great program for my major.

    Campus Safety

    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.

    Clubs and Activities

    There isn't a club you can't join. There is also multiple spirit groups, always trying to make UNT a more exciting place. Plus there are events going on in the Union almost every night.

    Great for these types of students

    Artistic or people who love local culture!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    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.

    Food and Dining

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

    Dorm Life

    I did not enjoy my dorm life, but I have friends who loved it!

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes really challenge you, others are fun and interesting and do not require so much work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Talk to your advisor and make sure to schedule an appointment to do so well before registration. Advising appointments will help you know what you need to take, but they get filled when everyone is rushing. Stay ahead of the game!

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    What to do for fun

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 a recent transfer student from Indianapolis Indiana, and my current classification if sophomore. I am enjoying the school I am currently in, but there are several differences in contrast to the previous university I attended.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    A campus that is easily the most green school in texas. Great to the enviornment and very friendly to new students even though the campus can be intemidating. A place you will be dissapointed to leave from when you graduate.
