President’s Report

I enjoyed reading the President’s Report (spring 2008 special issue). It is exciting to find out all the wonderful things happening on campus. Keep up the good work!

Just dropping a line to say “great job” to The North Texan staff and UNT. I thoroughly enjoyed reading how UNT continues to be a leading university in the nation.

I just received The North Texan, and I thought this issue was a great use of space. I am proud to have been a student at UNT. Keep up the good work. I spent the last five years editing The Trident, a magazine for members of Delta Delta Delta sorority. I am aware of all of the thought and work that is poured into a quality publication. Kudos!

I received and absorbed the recent special edition of TheNorth Texan.
As I turned through the pages, it came to me that there was a glaring difference between our publication and those of A&M, UT or Tech. Not one of the people in the photos was wearing anything green, much less any North Texas merchandise.
If, in the future, it could be arranged, some North Texas pride would be nice to see in the photos.
As an advertising art major, I know the power of image.
