A laid-back, open-minded person who is interested in a college education but doesn't want to stress out too much. There is a very diverse group of students here so the more open-minded you are, the more you will fit in.

There isn't really a typical student at UNT. Our university prides itself in how diverse we are, so if a person likes learning about other cultures and meeting new and diverse groups of people then they should apply

A typical student from UNT is an environmentally aware person because the university is, after all, a green school. Since the university is big on going green; most students that apply here are usually into the sciences and like to protect the environment.

The students that should attend UNT should be one who loves a cigarette free campus and being green. Students will usually join for all the volunteering opportunity for cleaning up the city.

This is a really interesting question specifically because of where Denton is geographically located, and it is influenced by a number of different elements. Denton is a part of the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex, but falls ~35 minutes from either. Because of this, Denton does not have the big city feel that these large cities do. It is home to roughly 150,000 but still maintains a small town atmosphere with a strong emphasis on local shops and restaurants. I feel like these factors play a great deal in the kind of people that attend UNT. I'd say that UNT can cater to nearly every type of social genre. There is a prevalent greek life simply because of the deep southern roots engrained in Texas. The distinguished music program brings many articulate types. If you grabbed a 100 students at random you would surprisingly get an equal portion of racial backgrounds, and there's a strong emphasis on being progressive in terms of supporting the local LGBTQ community. So to be completely honest and frank, I believe that the typical high school student, no matter where they see themselves fitting-in in society, would have no trouble in finding a little community for themselves within UNT's already sprawling and diverse community.

A typical UNT student in High School was one that was very active in school activities or sports. One might have been on student council or even invited to be in the National Honor Society. This individual was well liked by their peers, not necessarily being the popular one, but definitely stood out to students and teachers alike.

UNT has a diverse group of students. To narrow down the scope of students I will describe the two most commonly found at UNT. There are two sets of "types" of students, those that are well known as jocks, and those that are well known as "hipsters". Hipsters are people who like vintage clothing and music.

I don’t believe you can conclude what a typical college student would be like in high school. When you leave high school and start an educational tenure at a University you change and mature. I could speak for myself instead of other UNT students in general. In high school I was a friendly people person. I was not in cheer leading or athletics, but I did participate in many different organizations, like honor society and student council. The type of person that attends UNT should be a smart individual that is focused on a goal of continuing their education.

Academically oriented, dedicated, motivated and well rounded personality. They have a humanistic approach to life which is what attracts UNTHSC to choose them for their Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program.

A typical University of North Texas student in high school would have probably been like any other regular/ student who could not wait to get to college after senior year. They were probably immature, fully of energy and had a lot of goals and dreams. The type of person that should attend UNT is a person who is willing to pursue their academic goals but also wants to be involved in what the college has to offer.

The type of person that should attend the University of North Texas is someone who has an ambition and commitment to go to class. There are many teachers who want their students to be successful in life, but if a student does not put part of themselves in school then there is no reason to go.

Everyone here seems to be upper middle class, well off enough to be able to choose a campus for what they like, while not being rich enough to outright pay for college.

Anyone who has an open mind and is willing to make new memories. If you were the type of person to have been active in extracurricular activities, there are various things to do at UNT. There are clubs that fit your athletic, academic, and geek-ery needs. Here at UNT, we hold our very own annual spring Comic Con but with a twist, GeekOn. During this week-long event, we celebrate your geeky side, whether it is your love for Harry Potter, Star Wars, coin collecting, etc.

Here at University of North Texas there are all kinds of different people who like different things, so there is no specific type of person that goes here.

The cool thing about UNT is that there is no "typical student". One of my favorite things about North Texas is how diverse it is. You will see students of every race and ethnicity. People with different backgrounds, interests and styles come together there. If given the opportunity, I tell anyone how much I love my school; diversity being one of the reasons. There is no "specific type of person" who should attend UNT. As long as you're a student who wants a good education and loves diversity, North Texas is for you!
