I enjoyed the townQuite BrightAccounting
I enjoyed the town of Denton. I was into music and Denton is great for jazz as well as indie rock. Several great bands would play in Denton.

Question
I attended UNT for 1 semester, and IQuite BrightBiology
I attended UNT for 1 semester, and I have to say, it was the worst semester of my life. My roomate,and most people I met were sheltered suburban kids who really didn't know anything about anything. There is no balance of people; either they are isolated suburban white kids, isolated suburban black kids, people who don't want to be accepted by society (i.e., so-called Goths), or superlative underachievers. I come from a small town, and wanted a well rounded college experience. UNT is like a high school with 30,000 people. If you want to be around mature people with some idea of what's going on in the world, don't waste your time at the University of North Texas. The biology program is an afterthought; everything is an afterthought to the music program. Classes are either taught by mediocre professors, or teaching assistants who have no idea how to speak the English language. This school blows up its image like its really good. It's not, at least at the undergraduate,non-music major level.

Question
The educational value was not worth my timeQuite BrightEducation
The educational value was not worth my time or money. This is a commuter school, and UNT refuses to acknowledge that. They charge outrageous prices for parking permits, make the students park the furthest away from campus and give parking tickets for EVERYTHING! Getting a simple question answered over the phone is near impossible. You will always get the standard answer of "you need to make an appointment for that". Why does it take 8 weeks to get a degree plan put together? Each department keeps to itself. The advisor for my college (Education) didn't know that a course number had changed and made me get written verification from my professor (which took several days) before they would give me creit. Shouldn't the advisor know a course number changed? They are also famous for dropping students from a class and not telling them.
