This month we celebrated the opening of the UNT Welcome Center, our new "front door" to greet prospective students, families and guests when they visit our caring and creative campus. With thousands of visitors annually touring UNT, the Welcome Center's centralized location at the corner of Maple and Highland streets and across from the Highland Street Garage will be easily accessible for all.
We designed this building to improve the prospective student tour experience and seamlessly connect them with the information needed to make college enrollment decisions. We also moved the Dining Services and Housing and Residence Life offices to the Welcome Center's second floor so that questions can easily be answered before or after a campus tour.
If you know of students in the midst of their college search, tell them about your experience at UNT and encourage them to take a tour. Our Eagle Ambassadors do an excellent job showcasing life at UNT by highlighting our buildings, sharing facts and discussing our campus' unique culture and spirit.
Our Denton campus is constantly growing and evolving with our student body, and I hope you will consider taking a tour the next time you come home for a visit. We offer tours for all — including prospective freshmen, transfer and graduate students — and they can be booked at tours.unt.edu.
