3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Denton is a college town. Without UNT, it would be even more 'dead' than it already is.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: If you like a typical college town you will like Denton.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Denton is charming. DFW Metroplex has much to offer...if you are willing to drive a distance.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love the town of Denton.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Denton is easily the best small town in the country. Even though it is small, we are not far from some of the best places in Texas! Such as Texas Motor Speedway, an about an hour from AT&T Stadium the home of America's Football Team the Dallas Cowboys, and Globe Life Park the home of the Texas Rangers. The environment in Denton is extremely friendly, from the locals down to the students of UNT and TWU. There's so much history that has happened in Denton, it can't be read from someone's words only experienced.
