"I chose UNT because it has everything! Wonderful people I met on my tour along with a beautiful campus and a wide variety of interesting classes. To name a few other reasons, there are so many research opportunities (as UNT is a tier-one research facility), an abundance of student organizations, and a plethora of student resources (like the Learning Center and the Money Management Center). As a current sophomore I can truly say everyone here wants you to succeed and it is such a caring community."

Ask me about being a BS Biochemistry major, student organizations, university scholarships, professors, undergraduate research, being pre-med, the Honors College, and student success resources.

Ask me about Biology major, Chemistry minor, and Psychology minor, along with their required courses and experience in the courses. Pre-med concentrations (suggested classes, etc.), volunteering/shadowing for med school, and working at a hospital."

Ask me about mentality, study habits, getting involved on campus."

Amanda Chiaha

Major: BS Biology. Minor: Chemistry


"I choose UNT because I liked that the campus population was large, it meant that i would have the oppurtunity to meet a lot of people. Another reason was the research, I had reached out to the biology department after applying and I was connected to a lab that I found interesting. .

Ask me about finding research opportunities in the Biology department, pre-med classes and organizations, how to study, being an international student."

Raven Celeste

Major: BS Biology. Minor: Chemistry.

Secondary Education Teaching Certification and Pre-Vet

"I chose UNT because it provided a completely different environment from where I grew up. As an El Paso native, I was surrounded by people who looked/talked similar to me, and while that is lovely and comforting (along with the FANTASTIC Mexican food there), I always wanted to expand my horizons by attending an out-of-city university. UNT provides this home where I have met amazing, unique peers I consider family! Also, the CoS Department has provided me with numerous opportunities (career/academic wise) that I know I wouldn't find anywhere else!

(PS: I also love the color green, so that could've been an influence! #GMG)!

Ask me about pre-Veterinary Path, Teach North Texas, Biology major/Chemistry minor, First Generation stuff, and personal organization habits!"

Natasha Leftin

Major: BS Mathematics & BA Media Arts

"I chose UNT because of the atmosphere and diversity presented here, including how there's something for everyone. Everyone can make a difference and a name for themselves at UNT if they choose. It's an amazing community to help guide you in your path to success. I love the people, campus, and environment created and you will too!

Ask me about whenever you are in doubt or don't know where to begin or possibly you are spiraling into confusion on what to do I am always here! Trust me we have all be there! Which is okay and there are many things I learned on my journey here that I'd love to help or guide you. I can help you from anything to do with classes, scheduling, Teach North Texas, double majoring, recommendations, how to get involved or even some personal questions that relate to campus life. I was in your shoes once and want to lend a helping hand. Hopefully we can talk soon whether it's about schedules or about the football games! Go Mean Green. "

Major: BA Biology. Minors: Chemistry and Public Health

Pre-Med and Honors College

"I choose UNT because I have lived in Denton my entire life and felt comfortable at UNT. I wanted to stay close to my family, friends and my chihuahua. UNT had my desired major, accepted all of my Advanced Placement credits and even offered me a scholarship making it the perfect place.

Ask me about study habits, being a pre-med, professor recommendations, things to do in Denton or ways to get involved at UNT."

Claire Spann

Major: BS Biochemistry. Minor: Biology.

"I initially chose UNT because of its location and financial aid, but as I visited and learned more about the culture of UNT, I fell in love! The school has so many opportunities not just for research, experience, and a great science education, but also for friendship, fun, connections, and diversity. UNT is a safe, welcoming, and fun environment for all college students.

Ask me about Biochemistry, the Honors College, undergraduate research, professor and class recommendations, special programs and certificates, scholarships, pre-academia resources, mental health/schedule management, and writing for applications, scholarships, and other opportunities."

I choose UNT for their warm welcoming community! The moment I first came to UNT every encounter I had that day from the staff to the students were very sweet.

This university which I call home, welcomed me with open arms thats why I could not help but to choose UNT!

Study Habits: I tried different types of study habits from trying to listen to classical and lofi music while studying for history, to building molecular structures to memorize biochemical structures. Premed: I am 4th generation premed student, I come from a wide array of doctors in my family while working alongside many doctors and medical specialist. I can help with mock interviews, personal statements and many more suppliments for medical school. Majors, Minors and Certificates: I have dipped my toes in many subjects and can help you fish out what might intrest you the most!
