UNT Insider

Some of the UNT Family's newest members flash an Eagle Claw during Orientation at the Coliseum.

Dear UNT supporter,

With each of this summer's Orientation sessions, we welcome new members into our creative and caring Mean Green Family. We're teaching them about our university traditions, exposing them to majors and programs of study, helping them enroll in fall courses, introducing them to a host of support services, guiding them throughout our beautiful campus, and connecting them with knowledgeable faculty and staff who will support them throughout their UNT journey.

As you'll read in this issue, ecosystem geographer and Associate Professor Dr. Alexandra Ponette-González is one of seven environmental experts selected to serve on the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee, we have a new dean in the College of Science, and announced three new appointments within the Division of Research and Innovation. Members of our community have been recognized lately for penning award-winning articles, esports excellence, and as for shining brightly as "North Star" faculty.

This fall promises a vibrant, full university experience, and we hope you will make plans to visit. Homecoming celebrations are scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 13, when the Mean Green face off against UTEP. Mark your calendar now, and we'll share the complete schedule and tailgating information as it becomes available.

UNT Proud,
Neal Smatresk
