• Summer College Tour:  University of North Texas

    Students from high schools across HISD joined the College Readiness Department on our first Summer College Tour to visit the University of North Texas in Denton.  Students on the trip were able to experience a campus tour and admissions presentation, have lunch in a campus dining hall and received a special presentation from the College of Merchandising, Hospitality and Tourism about some of the unique majors in their field and the careers they can lead in to. 

     Overall the students had a great experience, and many who attended are now considering adding UNT to their list of college options. 

     When asked about their experience on the trip, one student said, "It makes me not consider distance anymore, it makes me want to go out and explore my options in different colleges."  Another student responded, "My mindset has changed from just applying to a school based on what I see on their website, to really taking in consideration the aspects of living in the campus and exploring it before making a decision."
