Pass it on: Great things are happening at UNT. Learn about them here and share our successes with your family and friends.
- Happiness is a warm puppy. UNT’s Center for Animal Assisted Therapy, one of the nation’s first, was founded by Cynthia Chandler, professor of counseling and higher education. She frequently shares her knowledge at conferences and other events to spread the word about the benefits of friendly cuddles, barks and purrs. Learn more at the College of Education's web site.
- On your mark. Keyth Talley, a sprinter on the Mean Green track and field team, won the national junior championship 200-meter dash at the U.S. Track and Field Competition in June. That qualified him to participate in the 2009 Pan American Junior Athletics Championship in Port of Spain, Trinidad, in August, where he was on the gold medal-winning 4x100 relay team and placed second in the 200-meter dash.
- Trombones rule. For the third consecutive year, College of Music students won the International Trombone Quartet Competition held this year in Denmark. In the winning quartet were (below, from left) Matt Jefferson, Carl Lundgren, Alex Dubrov and Nick Laufer. Kyle Mullins, Mark Scott (’08) and Jeremy Stones (’07) also won awards.
