Get to know Shelby Holloway...

Favorite Place on campus:

The Student Union. Whether you are just passing through, grabbing a bite to eat, getting that much needed Starbucks, or listening to one of the many jazz bands, the student union is the place to be. My personal favorite is Avesta. This sit down restaurant is a nice escape from sitting in class or the office. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is one-of-a-kind.

What do you believe is the best resource UNT offers for transfer students?

The Transfer Counselors! We are here to help students as they make their transition to UNT. You can find us around the community at your local junior colleges or visit us on campus. We are here to help you achieve all of your academic endeavors.

What advice would you give to a community college transfer to UNT?

Get involved and study hard! Meet your fellow Mean Green family and join one of the 400+ organizations UNT has to offer. Also don’t forget all the amazing recourses available on campus to promote student academic excellence.

What do you enjoy doing when not at work?

I enjoy spending time with my family and taking my puppy to the dog park. I love going to concerts and different sporting events around the area. I also like hanging out with friends at the Denton Town Square and experiencing all the unique culture Denton has to offer.
