Message from the former president of the University of North Texas, one of my alma maters.
I’m posting it here for those of you to see who are in the planning stages of sending your children off to college. My personal college career included, in addition to the University of North Texas, Tulane University, Washington University and Rice University.
North Texas was and remains my favorite.
Here’s the scoop from former President V. Lane Rawlins:
I'm a strong believer in the power of education to enhance the quality of one's life and career. A college education is an important investment, with rewards that far outweigh the costs.
There is no better time to consider returning to UNT to advance your career,
start a new career path or recommend that your friends and children study here.
As you may know, UNT is fast becoming a place for superior education and scholarship because of our deep commitment to advancing educational excellence with high-quality faculty and an excellent, supportive environment.
We are committed to providing an affordable education that is on par with the best public research universities.
We have many nationally ranked programs for those wanting to continue their
education and for those just starting out. Our graduate programs include online programs, professional science master's programs and graduate academic certificate programs that allow one to enhance their job skills or start a new career in a way that suits their schedule and needs.
We also offer professional certification programs such as UNT’s private investigator certificate program, which was recently ranked as one of the top five such programs in the nation.
And our many undergraduate degree programs allow students to pursue virtually any career while gaining valuable hands-on experience in research and scholarship.
As you can see, UNT is a great place to earn a degree. If you're a parent of a college-age student, you and your child can explore our campus at UNT Preview April 28 to get a glimpse of campus life and see why UNT is the right place to be.
More than ever, UNT is determined to provide a green light to greatness for
our students by giving them a high-quality education in a supportive
environment that helps them successfully learn and grow.
