At UNT, we look at things differently. We work with our students to create a vision for their future career and we give them the tools to launch their dreams. We look at people from all angles, which is how criminal justice students saw the humanity in the incarcerated population they worked with. And our researchers view their subjects on the nanoscale, resulting in new perspectives.

Athletics designed a plan to build champions and prepare leaders, and they certainly achieved that this year by winning titles and creating a partnership with DATCU. Ellie Breaux ('23) worked hard as a business student and dancer and is now Miss Texas. Jarred Howard felt a calling to create a museum to mark Juneteenth and, as CEO for the National Juneteenth Museum, he is on his way to making that building a reality.

Cover Story

From Classroom to Career

UNT is preparing the future leaders of tomorrow, not only through the education received in the classroom, but beyond. That starts the day they step on campus, as students explore their interests and career opportunities through career readiness seminars, including navigating the resources available to them while they study. Students also have access to three comprehensive career centers on two campuses, dedicated career coaches and designer degrees where they build their own program of study. "Instead of just going into it blindly, UNT does a great job at providing these resources for us so we're ready," says Arsalan Nazari, a senior in the project design and analysis program at UNT at Frisco.
