The campus is very clean, green, and friendly. I feel safe walking around on campus. The classes are challenging and worth the cost of tuition. Housing is too expensive. Their online log in accounts are not always user friendly and there are multiple accounts that you have to keep up with. Parking passes are too expensive and parking for residents is scarce. School spirit is good but attendance at sporting events isn't the greatest. The campus is well integrated into the community with no clear border of where campus ends and begins. I personally do not like that there is a separate form that you must fill out in order to be considered for scholarships while other universities use the information directly from your application and FASFA. They treat their students as independent adults straight off the bat, with expectations that are just a little too high for freshman. Once you get over those bumps and into the door, the school is great!

The University of North Texas is located on the outskirts of my hometown. I attended a prestigious, private high school and found myself apprehensive about attending a school so close to home that was not an ivy league. At the mandatory freshman orientation I was blessed by God to be placed into my specific orientation group. My leader worked tirelessly at making sure we not only learned the layout, policies, and traditions of the mean green nation, but also that we connected with each other. As soon as I stepped on campus at the beginning of the fall semester I had over thirty close friends I had bonded with as well as a leader who made it his mission to guarantee our success. In a little over one semester, I, an inexperienced introvert have been accepted into UNT's Student Government Association as a freshman intern, competed in my very first swim meet as a member of our co-ed swim team, and have earned a 3.8GPA which I never thought was possible! The University of North Texas has become my new home, even considering my childhood home lies ten minutes down I-35, East. The faculty and staff offer countless resources for the benefit of all thirty-six thousand students and begin investing in their future as soon as student orientation begins.

Every teacher I have had, along with TA's, have given off a vibe that they are willing to give up their lives to help us understand any given concept. My French professor would teach us common francophone words and phrases not discussed in the textbook when we finished our coursework early. My intro to Psychology professor met with me several times in one week to help me understand how humans' amygdala affects emotions. Another factor I find unique as well as unbelievably helpful are the student instructors, known as "SI's." The SI's are students who have taken the class, earned an "A," then are paid by the university to hold three tutoring sessions a week for students to attend. Without my Political Science SI, I would not have gotten a "B" in my most difficult course to date!
