Pass it on: Great things are happening at UNT. Learn about them here and share our successes with your family and friends.
- Reaching out. UNT is dedicated to serving the students of the North Texas region and it shows. Recently, the university expanded its outreach efforts to help more students successfully transfer from community college to UNT. With 11 new advisors on area community college campuses, UNT is doing more than ever to help educate the people in the region.
- Game on! As part of National Gaming Day, students gathered at Willis Library for video game free play and tournament time on Kinect, Playstation3, Wii and Xbox consoles. They also played on historical reproductions of board games from Ethiopia and Central America, and learned about game development and design from UNT's student Game Developer's Association, proving today's libraries are educational, recreational and social places.
- Soccer champs. The Mean Green soccer team once again clinched the title of Sun Belt Conference Champions, this time for the 2011 regular season. That marks the program's sixth Sun Belt Conference regular season or conference tournament win. UNT finished its season undefeated at home for the first time since 2005 and for the first time in the Mean Green Soccer Complex, which was built in 2006.
