I definitely love UNT's diversity. I haven't been to other colleges much but I've heard we are very different from most. My eyes have been opened to so much, especially since I am from a very "non-diverse" hometown. I've met so many different people and learned a lot. If I could change anything, it would be on-campus parking. If residential parking is hard to find, then the parking permit prices should definitely go down!!! I love the size of UNT. It's still considered a large school but the campus is pretty compact. I wouldn't change it at all. Most of the time when I'm on campus I'm at the rec center or in a cafeteria. I see people I know all the time and I love living in the dorms.
Once you get into your upper level classes, you begin to know people within your major and professors know you on a one-on-one basis. At first when you're in college you take core classes with up to hundreds of other people, but it's nice taking major classes and being able to communicate better with your professor. Students' studying obviously varies...the ones who make it generally plan out their time well and study often, and those who just have fun all of the time end up disappearing after a few semesters!!! So their fun doesn't normally last too long. Depending on your major, students can be very very competitive. Not really against each other, but more striving to do their best for themselves. I love my major, but it can be very stressful. I'm a BCIS major (business computer info systems) and often the workload is extreme. People will say, "you're only taking 12 hours???" but they don't realize that each class has projects to work on each week that take hours within themselves. It's very very demanding. But it's a small major so I'm getting to know my peers pretty well. I have about 20 people max in most of my classes and in one there is only about 12. I think the education here is mixed between learning just to learn, and geared towards jobs. I would like to have more hands on learning than just reading my books all of the time. Being a computer major, I would like to have classrooms in computer labs so we can actually get a feel of what we're doing. But the career center has great resources for getting jobs so I'm not too worried on that end.
UNT IS EXTREMELY DIVERSE!!! YOU WILL FIND EVERYBODY FROM EVERYWHERE!!!
The Best Things
All the people, and the size of campus
The Worst Things
PARKING!!! Books, tuition, housing, and other fees...but that's everywhere
