Clouds and the threat of rain didn't dampen the spirit of hundreds of prospective students, their families and community members who made their way to campus last Saturday morning for our annual Trailblazer 360 event. President Bob Mong kicked things off with a roll call of UNT Dallas' many superlatives: Most affordable in North Texas; lowest student debt upon graduation in the nation; and fastest-growing university in North Texas.
From there, prospective students toured the campus, gained knowledge about our university, our academic programs and what life here is all about. Food, fun and games kept everyone happy. Some 400 student RSVPs, a record number, were received, and it certainly appeared as though nearly all attended.
It was a terrific day to promote how UNT Dallas can help all students in southern Dallas, regardless of economic background, blaze their trail to a college degree and a bright future.
