UNT Insider

You'll see your favorite spots and the community's many sides in our newest video, Denton: Where Creativity, Caring and Culture Thrive. No matter where you roam in Denton, you'll find friendly faces, feel at home and know that you've found where you belong.

Dear alumni and friends,

This summer has been fun-filled as we welcome thousands of new students to campus and the city of Denton for orientation. The program gives students and families an opportunity to talk with college or school faculty and staff, meet new friends, hear from current students, register for classes and learn about UNT traditions. Also at orientation, students get a taste of Denton, which is continually named one of the Best College Towns in America. As you'll see in our newest video, Denton: Where Creativity, Caring and Culture Thrive, no matter where you roam in Denton, you'll find friendly faces, feel at home and know that you've found where you belong.

In this issue you'll read about a UNT student who was crowned Miss Texas, our new esports scholarships, a fresh design for the basketball court, Mean Green football players landing on award watch lists and one of the newest Mean Green love stories.

As summer winds down and you make plans for the fall, I hope Denton will be on your list of weekend destinations. Take your friends and family to your favorite spots and explore dozens of alumni-owned restaurants, bars and businesses. In addition to Mean Green gamedays, Denton offers festivals and outdoor activities sure to spark your interest. Plan to join us for Homecoming Nov. 1-2 for the annual bonfire, parade and football game against UTEP.
