Overall

I love this school. There is always something to do and activites are always very publicized. They offer so many tools to help students succeed. You can access computers 24-7 and the faculty is very friendly and willing to help. The school wants everyone to succeed and tries to do whatever they can to to make that happen. The atmosphere here is just perfect for any one and every one!

Academics

The academics here are incredible. Tutoring oppertunities are every where and are very good. Teachers are always willing to help studetns as much as they can. It is their honest goal to see students succeed. The courses are always fun but very educational. The work load can sometimes seem like a lot but it is always doable. The teachers dont try to give you more than you can handle. They understand that students have other classes and need to not be so bogged down that it makes them fail.

College Life

The social atmosphere here is awesome. There is something for everyone. Clubs and activities are constantly advertising ad keeping students in the know. It is never hard to find your place here because people are so inviting and nice. Students get along and everyone is welcomed.

Overall

This college is transfer friendly for Tarrant County Junior College students to articulate the most hours for a seamless transition. Since the campus is much larger than a junior college prepare early for Financial Aid and set up your accounts online early. Check on Books before a semester starts.

Academics

Excellent online experiences, sometimes courses are more difficult due to content and technology. Stay in touch with your academic advisor every semester. Class size average for the state. Check your e-mail daily. Consider your college career and investment as you build an Educational portfolio. Network with instructors for scholarships for each department.

College Life

Tons of stuff to do. Food is excellent, Boar heads sandwiches, anything you want. Be prepared to spend the money at this college. The cafe is an active place to meet people and read a free newspaper. Surrounding restaurants around colleges and other services exstend student discounts.

Overall

It's a very good public school. I made some very good friends and many have gone on to develop great careers with their degrees. It's probably not the best public school in all of Texas (like UT Austin) but it's better than most in North Texas.

Academics

They offer a good variety of classes and studies. Professors are a mixed bag. Most are very good but some just personified the old stereotype "those who can't do teach". Class size were average, not to small and not too big.

College Life

The college has been around since 1890 and has gone through different names (North Texas State for example). Denton used to be a rural area but is now in development to becoming more suburban like Plano and Lewisville with more shopping centers and retail. There's plenty of bars, restaurants, and night life activities.

Hi, I'm Trey Searcy! When I first visited the campus, to see a guitar clinic done by Oz Noy in the music building, I was not impressed with the school, other than the fact that the One O' Clock Lab Band was wailing in one of the rooms! However, when I visited the school again and saw more of the campus, I was encouraged by the fact that it was a better campus than I initially thought. Last summer, I stayed on campus in Bruce Hall for one week as I attended the Jazz Combo Workshop and got to experience all the elements of the school such as dorm-life, cafeteria, and the highly renowned jazz program. The main reason I want to attend UNT is that it's music program is fantastic. The fact that I live in the Dallas area is a plus also. I am interested in studying jazz guitar and Fred Hamilton is a great professor, and the faculty as a whole is exceptional. Playing in the One O' Clock Lab Band is a dream/vision of mine and any scholarship you guys would be willing to offer would be appreciated. Thanks!

Academics

I attend Trinity Christian Academy in Addison, TX which is a college- prep high school. The school focusses heavily on it's combined History English program which integrates the classic literary works of the historic time periods that we study. It is deemed a rigorous curriculum, but is not as overbearing as some college-prep high schools. The teachers are great and develop relationships with the students as the class size is about 20. Many of the teachers are fun and interesting while still exhibiting their brilliance in the subjects they teach. As far as workload goes, it can be alot at times. If I could go to UNT, that would be really nice because their curriculum doesn't have such a rigorous reputation, but their music program which is my area of interest does present rigorous and challenging opportunities. Thus, I could focus more on that. So TCA has been great preparation educationally but more importantly spiritually in developing my relationship with my God and Savior Jesus Christ.

College Life

UNT's social atmosphere has it's good and bad aspects as it is not as valiant as a larger university is. However, it is a close knit community from what I've seen in visiting campus, and I feel that if I were to attend, I would be able to find good opportunities to become involved in activities. Thanks!

Overall

I love that the school is so great for pursuing music, but what I like even more is that just because it's so great for music, that isn't the only thing the school excels in. You could find various majors to pursue here and get as good or even better of an education in this one great place than doing it in separate colleges.

Academics

As far as academics go, the school seemed pretty well. When our tour guide was showing us some of the classrooms I liked that the rooms weren't overly large for having a large student to teacher ratio. I also liked that there were many different areas to study and that their were technolical devices free to use for student services, which would really help with the work.

College Life

From what I can see, campus life is great. Their is free wi-fi in the facilities and academic groups for each building, such as athletics are music groups. Student life looks great as well, because their is a meal plan offered for all students and the students seem to get along pretty well.
