University of North Texas The North Texan

It may be vacation season, but our industrious UNT family isn't taking any breaks -- and that's nowhere more apparent than in our summer issue of The North Texan. We feature entrepreneurial Eagles who launched their own tech startups in the DFW area, alums who worked full time while earning Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degrees, the hardest-working women in beauty and bartending, and a man who tackles tough challenges daily as Dallas' director of aviation.

And we want to work hard for you, too -- so don't forget to take our Readership Survey to let us know how we're doing.
