Today marks day one of the Top Five Reasons why you ought to tune in daily to the Green Eagle Blog.
Reason #5: 99 Other Super Cool Students
I spent last Thursday and Friday meeting some of the students selected for the Green Eagles. I really enjoyed getting to know everyone and learning where they came from, what they are majoring in and what they like to do for fun. I met John Northey who is a Freshman Music major who plays Jazz trumpet. I really liked talking with John because he hails from Washington, which is where I lived for 3 years before I moved here.
I also got the chance to meet Brittney Johnson, a transfer student. Brittney is also musically inclined and loves to sing. It is my goal to get Britteny and John together for an open mic night so she can sing while he plays trumpet.
I also heard what some of you think are the best and most challenging things about being at UNT. The best thing about being at UNT, so far, seems to be meeting friendly people. Your challenges seem to be things such as time management, increased work load and the long walk between classes.
So what can we learn about the other 98 of you? What is your talent? Tell us in the comment section and get in the drawing for this week’s prize-given out here on our blog each Friday.
