“All of these experiences have helped me grow a lot in the relatively short time I’ve been here,” he says.

Andrew was first attracted to UNT by the College of Engineering’s strong reputation for academic excellence. He appreciates the top-notch advisors and professors he’s worked with at Discovery Park, noting, “They’ve always been there to help me through any rough patches I’ve had and to give academic as well as moral support.”

On campus, he enjoys the diversity of the student population and many social activities that he says makes for a rich, interesting atmosphere.

For those considering the college and UNT, he says: “No matter your field of interest, I have no doubt you can find something to love. I haven’t once second-guessed my decision, and I wouldn’t trade my experiences here for the world.”
