The University of North Texas (UNT) is a public research university located in Denton, Texas. Founded in 1963 by the University of North Texas System Board of Regents and named for Dr. William Preston Johnston, it is one of only two universities in the state capital to be named after a living person—the other being UT Arlington.
UNT is known for its student diversity; over 98% are from outside the state or country because students come from all over the globe including China, Japan and South Korea as well as Europe and Canada. It also has many international students who attend classes like an American student would but live off campus instead of on campus since most international students don't have enough money to afford housing at UNT's prices unless they visit during breaks between semesters or summer time when there's no tuition fee charged per semester/yearly basis.
UNT is home to The University of North Texas Health Science Center, which has two colleges: Denton A&M College and UNT Health Science Center. It also offers over 120 bachelor's degree programs, more than 150 master's degrees and several doctoral degree programs.
UNT also has a variety of student organizations and clubs, including: The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), United African Organization (UFO), UNT Honors Program, Greek Life at UNT, Student Government Association (SGA) and several others.
