University of North Texas Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (24)
My area of research required a couple of special projects and a minor in advance of my thesis. The History Department and my graduate committee professors allowed me the flexibility needed to complete my studies. I also believe that my experience benefited from the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the professors.
The University of North Texas gave me the tools I needed to pursue my career. Not only did I receive tools to help me in my career but with life in general. I was able to start peer relationships that would last a lifetime. It made me see how team work is so beneficial which has been so rewarding working in both corporate America and as an educator. My professors truly gave me an opportunity to see how it would be in the real world. I was able to see if I really wanted to pursue curtain jobs. I got the insight I needed as a young adult getting ready to be a productive citizen in my community. The University of North Texas is a great college and I highly recommend it. They have to available campuses for your convenience, one in Denton and one in Dallas, as well as online courses.
It's a great school for the arts and the student population is diverse. Also, it's trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible, so recycling bins are everywhere and there are some wind turbines.
A complete waste of time. Only the students who don't work seem to learn anything. These students tend to grade classmates poorly (yes, there are peer evaluations) if you aren't at their beck and call to do work when they say so. Trust me, I thought I would note be mistreated either until it happened in my final semester. My professor told me to get over it and that if a student wants to give me and F without any reason, then I will receive an F. I wish I were joking.
I really enjoyed the class sizes once your where in your degree plan classes. Most of my professors were excellent and really wanted their students to succeed. Denton was a little too small a town for me, but with such close proximity to Dallas and Fort Worth, it was easy to find things to do.
Loved UNT. It's a commuter school, so a little different experience than a traditional larger 4-year university. I loved the size.... It's small enough where you feel like you matter and you're not lost in the student sea - but large enough that you don't feel like you're under a microscope. Overall, I love the school and had a great experience.
I would not recommend any student looking for a good college to go to unt. The staff everywhere from mailing services to the finicial aide are all very rude. The teachers were the worst professors, I had many foreign instructors in which the class couldn't understand a word. But, did UNT care? Not at all. If you are looking to apply at unt, or whether you are thinking about sending your child here I would not recommend it one bit. Every thing about this school is upsetting.
It's a really good school with a liberal ideology. If you want a degree in music, journalism, or criminal justice, then this is your school. I don't know much about other majors. It has a big recycling program with bins everywhere. Also, the marching band is amazing.
College is a great experience for those who have the opportunity. Freedom and independence learning who you are. Be sure you know for certain what you want to finalize and make a career out of. Before you know it, it'll be your junior year and you won't have a clue what you want to major in. I made that mistake and wound up doinh something totally unrelated to my degree that I loven
When I graduated, it was the worst economy since the great depression. I'm still drastically underpaid at this point in my life and have student loans to show for all my hard work. Graduating with honors didn't seem to make a difference. However, college itself was by far the most valuable experience in regards to experiences, life lessons and friends that I wouldn't trade for anything. I do think it's important and I do advocate education for the future of humanity in general. It's just a shame that the system treats students like dollar signs and employers are hesitant to heir individuals with no experience - vicious cycle that that is. School is important but we have a long way to go as a society with our values in general. Learn as much as possible and leave the world a better place than when you came into it.
