What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
When coming to the University of North Texas, make sure you become a part of one of the hundreds of organizations the University has to offer. It really is helpful when it comes to meeting new people with similar interests. And also, as a first year or even second year student, having a meal plan is an excellent choice. It gives you the ability to meet others and be social, and its fairly cheap!
Laura from Kingwood, TX
Paying the extra money to live in one of the newer dorms is worth it; the most recently built dorms at UNT more closely resemble apartments than traditional student dormitories. Many have private rooms and kitchenettes.
Natalie from Plano, TX
Don't be shy. Everyone is in a great mood, and ready to learn and get to know more about you! An awesome environment to really break out and be yourself. Like I said, there is so much diversity and people are very, very accepting.
Jade from Cibolo, TX
My advice for any student looking to come here for school would be to attend some sort of orientation, whether it be Transfer or Freshman. Talk to people and try to make friends with people in your hallway, classes, even those in the cafeteria! You never know who could turn out to be your best friend and it is so much easier to survive college if you have people close to you that are going through the same situations!
Claire from Midlothian, TX
Make sure you like where you will be living first and if you need a job apply in June or July. If you don't like noise don't stay in a dorm. Best freshmen halls for walking to class are Kerr and Maple as they have food for first thing in the morning and bus stops right in front of them. Also DON'T DO MORNING CLASSES!!! It's not like high school 8am because at least there you can go to bed before oh say... midnight?
Allison from Grapevine, TX
Go to college having an open mind and be ready for a new experience different from anything you have ever experienced. Be prepared for more homework and course work and don't be afraid to ask for help from the tuitors, professors and fellow students.
Cara from Richardson, TX
TALK TO YOUR T.A.'S AND PROFESSORS!!! I cannot stress this enough!!! They are not going to bite your head off if you ask to talk to them during office hours, and if you can't make it to those, they will schedule a meeting with you at both of your earliest conveniences. If you are in a class of 400+ people and your name is unknown to them, they will be that much less likely to help you when you need it. A way to prevent being overlooked is to sit in the FRONT of the class and PARTICIPATE in class discussion. Doing this will show that you have a vested interest in the class, plus it's easier to see and hear the teacher and board/projection/power-point.

Also... do NOT let partying destroy your study and sleep habits. It's fine to go to a few, I did, but make sure you understand that your grades come first, because what else are you paying for if not to learn? Remember the saying Good grades, enough sleep, and a social life. Pick two, welcome to college? You don't really know how true that is until you're here. In addition to this conundrum, most students, myself included, have one or more part-time jobs, and then time management becomes more of a crucial skill than it already is.

So to recap: Get to know the people who can help you, prioritize, and make sure you're actually getting some sleep. It catches up with you when you don't.
Christopher from Arlington, TX
visit more than once. you're not likely to run into the same people on campus, eat in the same place, or see the same organizations out and about. its diverse and there are always events going on (free food) if you just look for them.
Mia from Dallas, TX
UNT is growing closer and closer to becoming a tier one university. So when you come, bring that Mean Green pride with you! Support our football team at the new stadium in the fall, wear green on Fridays, and be proud of the Mean Green! Also, live in a residence hall for at least your first year. It's required, but many freshman find a way of getting around it. But, you'l find that living in a residence hall your freshman year really helps you transition to the college life and you'll make life long friends there. Plus UNT Housing and Residence Life has so much to offer as far as the learning communities, called REAL communities, the programs, and housing associations.
Leslie from Denton, TX
DO NOT WAIT TO DO ANYTHING With over 38,000 students, if you wait to do something, chances are, you'll miss the opportunity or spot for that class.
