Great Diversity.Not so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
Great Diversity. Open-Minded school atmosphere.
Too overcrowded which was a factor into a lot
of the schools downfall for student growth
academically and mentally.
The Business school tries hard to stay up
with the competition. Did a good job with
doing so. However, every class seemed like
a crash course. There was not a lot of time
to ask questions or to get any understanding.
If you were like me, a first generation college
student. You were sort of out of luck with the
counselor guidance. If you had to learn as you
went through the college experience like I did...
a C GPA may be in your future. I read online
different counselings from IVY LEAGUE schools and
they really spent one on one time trying to make
sure the students were prepared, ready and disciplined
for all that was ahead. Not coming from a strong academic
background, I lacked the discipline and certainly didnt know
the right questions to ask. If I did..I'm sure I would now
be applying to NYU with a lot of confidence instead of
sitting here miserably...hoping any grad school would
accept me now. I now work doing secretary type work because
I wasnt ready in college...
Of course Ivy League schools
are much smaller. Especially smaller than my public
school of over 30K students. SIGH.

Question
UNT is a good school for anyone, butQuite BrightEnglish
UNT is a good school for anyone, but especially for those who are interested in being educated in a laid-back environment. It has excellent programs for all of the liberal arts, and also a fantastic education department. I would think that anyone could find a niche here. The Greek system does have an empowering presence on campus, but you will find that it is mostly composed of students who are not extremely involved in their studies. However, if this is something that you are interested in, Sorority Houses went up this last year, and the Greek system has pulled together to be a strong unit. The athletic program, especially for football, has been improving, and overall the moral and school sprit seems to have increased profoundly in the last few years. I'm just worried that soon it will turn into a "football" school, as many of the others in TX. The staff has been helpful, though at times it feels that they don't have the materials to work with as a school this size should. The parking facilities are inadequate, but they seem to be making changes to improve it. Tuition has increased significantly, but our money is showing up all over campus in new buildings!

Question
UNT is by far the worst school in Texas.Quite BrightAccounting
UNT is by far the worst school in Texas. The staff is rude, crude and mean. I have completed 3 years here and I have not learned anything tests are so easy and the professors just do not care. The school is always a mess, the bulidings are old with paint chipping off plus the football team is a joke. If you want a degree to get you nowhere go to UNT but if you want a good future go elsewhere.
