I'm really a physics student, but I haveQuite BrightAstronomy
I'm really a physics student, but I have a particular interest in the astronomy program so let me chime under its poster-head.

The astronomy program at UNT is small but excellent. I'll be the first to admit it does not compare to UT, but the research being conducted by the observatory is always conveyed directly to the students. Unfortunately the physics department suffers from the 'brain drain' dilemma plaguing the US - a lot of its faculty do not speak English as readily as the average professor from the history department (my second major).Social life is good if you make it. Aesthetics are a little disappointing, as others have said, but the school is undergoing massive transformations so we'll see where it heads in the next decade.

Question
UNT has a great school called the "PublicQuite BrightSocial Work
UNT has a great school called the "Public Administration and Community Service" where all departments work together to do things in the community. The gerontology department is one of the best in the country. I really think this school is the best part about UNT.

The football team isn't very good at all, and there is hardly any attendance to the games. I hate that. It seems like Denton isn't very supportive of their school either unlike other college towns. UNT has a very involved campus life. Lots of things to do. Greek life is a little weird because there are so few of them, they tend to be extremely selective. I really loved my experience at UNT and they have given many resources for helping me with my career. They not only gave me my education, but also the foot in the door with the PACS school's involvment in the community. In virtually every community service class you take, you get many guest speakers which in turn helps your networking.

Question
Public Admin and PoliticalPolitical Science
Public Admin and Political Science at UNT are truly top notch. The research done is outstanding, and being able to be taught by Dr. Benavides or Professor Dr. Cullen Hendrix was a true learning experience I will never forget.
