What's your favorite thing about UNT?: 
My favorite thing about UNT is despite the large amount of students here, there are so many organization to join in order to get close to other students!

 

Favorite place to eat in Denton: LSA Burgers on the Square. Their brisket queso is amazing!

Favorite place to study: Pretty much any coffee shop!

Favorite place to shop in Denton: I had never been to Winco until I moved to Denton. They have barrels and barrels of different candies to chose from that I like to get before I go to the movies!

Favorite late night hangout: Pretty much any place with ice cream. Beth Maries is really delicious and has homemade waffle cones!

Favorite UNT tradition: Everything about the football games. I love when the football players run out on the feel and touch the Eagle statues head for good luck!

Favorite class you have taken so far: Advertising with Professor B. She was always so pumped and enthusiasic about everything she taught. She even brought her dog to class one day!!

What has surprised you the most about yourself since your arrival at UNT: When I first started UNT, I thought I was not going to like big classes and actually they turned out to be some of my favorite classes.

Where else did you apply for college: I applied to Texas Tech University and Angelo State. 

What made you choose UNT over the others: I wanted to move away from home and I really like the Dallas and Fort Worth Area. I also like how big the university is, yet how close all the students are.
