What's your favorite thing about UNT?: 
I love so many things about UNT (the close proximity to coffee shops, the art/music scene), but my favorite thing about UNT is the strong sense of community I've found here. There really is something for everyone! I can't walk around campus without seeing several people I know, and that is such a great feeling. Also, the city/community of Denton itself is one of my favorite things about UNT. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
