Favorite Place on campus:

West Hall. I moved into West as a freshman and left as a college graduate. It was my residence hall for a year, my job as an RA for three more, and my home for all four. I’ll always remember my staff, my residents, and my whole West family.

Favorite Thing to do in Denton:

Music. Some of my happiest memories are playing mandolin with my band at all the local open mics and dives throughout the city. The Denton music scene is very rich and broad, but you’ll be surprised how easy it is to break into if you want to perform! Businesses and venues are very supportive of aspiring Denton musicians.

Favorite UNT Fact:

The future of American justice – Robocop himself – Peter Weller is an alumnus of UNT.

What advice do you have for prospective students?

Be yourself, whoever you are, and be it fully. College is the time to branch out and try all the things you’ve always wanted to do all your life. Grow a beard, dye your hair, join a club, study abroad, learn an instrument, take all the free things you can carry – above all, find your niche here at UNT. It’s waiting for you!
