University of North Texas Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (51)
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.
Great experience. I had amazing professors that were wonderful teaches and people. They really looked after their students both academically and on a personal level. I lived in a dorm (Bruce Hall) for 2 years and in an off-campus apt for 1 and it was all great. The campus is easily navigable on foot, and bike and I always felt really safe. I felt like I got a really great education (for an incredibly reasonable price) and had a lot of connections when I graduated and was looking for a full-time job.
Transferring to the University of North Texas was the best academic decision I have ever made. The Materials Science and Engineering Department is one of the top research labs in the nation. The faculties genuinely care about the success of their students. Classrooms are full of open discussion and problem solving among peers. Instead of promoting an atmosphere of extreme competition, it is an atmosphere of collaboration. Any student interested in the science of materials would greatly benefit from the opportunities the University of North Texas has to offer.
I enjoyed the classes and campuses, did not like dealing with financial aid and scholarships. This applies to all schools, affording school has to become easier, it is a lot of stress to start a semester with financial aid and then when classes start to find out your courses will not be covered and your left with a $7,000.00 bill.
