I am a first year student at UNT.Quite BrightEngineering Department
I am a first year student at UNT. I am from out of state so I am forced to live in dorms my first year. One thing I wished I asked before moving here was whether there were people here on the weekends. Had I asked, the answer would have been no. THE CAMPUS IS EMPTY ON THE WEEKENDS. Everyone goes home. It makes the campus suck. I pay an extreme amount to live in dorms and eat bad food and there aren't even people to hang out with on the weekends. It gets really annoying.

Question
There needs to be a LOT of restructuringBrightMusic - Performance
There needs to be a LOT of restructuring of the jazz program, specifically vocal jazz. If you're a vocal jazz major, don't go to UNT. Just head straight over to Berklee.

The quality of musicianship isn't what I hoped it would be when I applied. The TA's that the vocal jazz department chooses to teach undergrad students are truly evil, without a genuine bone in their bodies. Power-hungry, sarcastic, and condescending, they got their jobs by kissing up and alienating their fellow students. But you will graduate a better musician than when you came in, if you can take 4 years in this program.

Question
UNT was unhelpful and misleading.Quite BrightGeography and Geosciences
UNT was unhelpful and misleading. I had to keep track of EVERY dollar I received in Financial Aid as on MULTIPLE occasions chunks would go missing or not be posted with no letters or emails to me. Shady!My department, the Geography department was TERRIBLE! The only good thing was the front office staff who was ALWAYS nice and helpful. As for the teachers, and I speak to the few teachers who deal in the physical aspect of geography, they were detached and did not work together (they work against sometimes). I could not get ANY help or even a discussion related to getting a thesis topic and/or research completed. When I was teaching undergrad classes I had to advise really interested students to go to other universities if they wanted to pursue this topic. The whole mess did nothing to help me gain knowledge or help me in a career. Do yourself a favor and RUN AWAY from UNT, as fast as you can! Me and several other grads wish we would have earlier.
