Why I think UNT is a great school: It is a university that has an international stature and scope that has been quietly leading the way to brighter and greener futures. UNT is a GREAT place to learn about the world you will be inheriting and offered the tools necessary to ensure you can participate in shaping the future. It sounds so cliché, but your future really does start here.
Why I chose to come to UNT: UNT was my first and only choice. Two of my sisters also graduated from UNT and one of them recently completed her PhD in California. UNT will provide a solid foundation on which to build your career. One thing that really impressed me was the combination of diversity in degree program offerings and the solid reputation that UNT has. Over the years I have come to appreciate UNT’s strengths, such as offering two distinctly different bachelor’s degree completion programs for those students who took a trade and technical route at community college. After a few years in the workforce, an AAS graduate will find that supervisory opportunities become available but they generally require a four year degree. Few universities offer one AAS to bachelor’s degree completion program, UNT offers two.
What I can do to help you transfer: Understanding UNT’s transfer equivalency guides and how to use them will greatly help you choose classes at your community college that apply to the UNT degree program which interests you. I can help you with that understanding as well as helping you find answers to new questions as they arise. You’ll learn that the process of transferring is not difficult but that timing can be very important. Schedule a meeting with me and let’s discuss an academic strategy that fits YOU. You can get there from here.

Why I think UNT is a great school: I think one of the best things about UNT is the traditions. I love that UNT has long-standing practices that are unique and interesting with a funny back-story. Traditions are things that as an alumni you will look back on fondly when thinking of your college years.

I am here to make your transition as seamless as possible. Your academic progress is important to me and to your future transferability. I'd be happy to set up an appointment with you at your convenience. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
