Put Me in Coach

Today marks day two of the Top Five Reasons why you ought to tune in daily to the Green Eagle Blog.

Stephanie Williams, Mark McCall and Rachel Slovacek tuned in yesterday and should be on the look out for a special treat soon.

Green Eagle

Reason #2:  Cool Coaches who were once cool first time UNT students

Your coach is or has been a student here at UNT.  They struggled, they had fun and they found success.  Your coach was selected because they know what it is like to be new to UNT and they learned how to succeed in class and on campus.  While I have no doubt that your coach will be a valuable resource to you and will answer questions you have about classes, financial aid and student activities, you should know they are worth getting to know.

Jamila Hammami’s favorite movie is Night of the Living Dead and she also enjoys playing bass guitar.

Zayra Molina is a fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies

Stephen Roberts, he is a TA for Antropology and he enjoys Kill Bill and going to concerts.

If you like sports then you should talk to Daniel Holobowicz.  He loves sports and played here at UNT.

Are you interested in Human Sexuality, the class here at UNT, well then you should talk to Katie Scarmondo because it has been her favorite class.

Grab some popcorn and watch SLC Punk with Lindsey Taflinger or you can stop by PEB 205 and say hi to her.

If you are a fan of Drew Barrymore then you should talk to Sarah Williams because her favorite movie is Never Been Kissed.

Jeff Buckner plays guitar and his favorite movie is Cool Hand Luke.

Now that I told you little more about some of our coaches, what would you like to know?  Ask the coaches a question and we will post their answers.  Also, your post today will get you in Friday’s raffle for a cool prize.

    well lets see, I wish i new more of what is going on around campus i always feel like left out or something on fun things going on. is it easier to have breaks inbetween classes then having them back to back? Is it easier to take notes with notebooks or on you laptop? Do SI sections really help you with a class you are having troubles in?

    thanks, stephanie

      Stephanie…check with your RA, they should be able to tell you some of the fun things happening on your floor and in the building…your RA is usually the first to know about fun campus events too.
      Is it easier to take breaks or go to class back to back? That depends….I always needed a break in between classes so I could eat, clear my head or read over notes. Some people do better by scheduling back to back so they can be done….I prefer having the break….think about the classes you have back to back versus those that give you breaks….which do you prefer? Note taking is another uniquely you choice. I learn better by writing my notes in class and then I type them when I get home. Do you know what your learning style is? Knowing that does help. I am looking into what the SI sections include, but if you have problems in class…talk to your professor, get a tutor or form a study group….oh by the way I know you like volleyball and soccer…here is a link for rec sports:

    When is the best time to apply for jobs on campus? Is it acceptable to stay home every once in a while from class if you’re sick or should you push through anyways and not get the absence counted? Are all sporting events free for students with an ID? I know there are lots of free concerts around campus, is there a list where I can see who is playing what and when and where? What is the best way to meet new people? Thanks for your time 🙂

      you can apply for jobs anytime since there are openings all year long. Check out student employment:


      If you need to work I recommend working on campus since they tend to be more flexible in scheduling. Every class has its own attendance policy…and it is usually indicated on your syllabus. If you are truly sick you probably should stay home, but I would ask each professor what their policy is (some will let you make up work missed if you are ill if you have a dr’s note, some do not)
      if you are a student with a UNT ID you can get in sporting events for free…and even other events, but you might need to show your ID to get a ticket for the event….always read the posters (even the small print)
      there are tons of free events on and around campus….you can find out about those by reading this blog or checking out:
      the best way to meet people is to get out….go to your hall’s events, attend student organization events, join a club, etc….challenge yourslef to meet one new person a day, turn aorund in your class and meet the person who sits behind you, knock on a person’s door down the hall and get to know them or go to a student group meeting that is of interest to you….
      great questions Rachel! I hope this helped

    What should I major in and how should I figure that out? I love Kill Bill and Never Been Kissed 🙂 I love movies!

    My dad is coming to campus in on a couple of weekends (unfortunately not family weekend) but what do I show him? Not necessarily on-campus sights, any Denton landmarks?

      The square at night is a really neat place. If your dad comes during a game weekend you can invite him to go tailgating and then the game.

    I love music, so i would like to know where some rock concerts would be at. doesn’t matter if it’s free or not. I was also wondering if any of the coaches could tell me who a great person to talk to accounting would be? Since it’s my major, I would like to get any head start that i possibly can. Any piece of information you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Oh, one last thing. When will we all recieve the rest of the swag back gifts? We realize that they hadn’t come in on time, but if you can give us a rough estimate, that would be fantastic.
