Favorite thing about UPC: Although I was lucky enough to call Denton my home far before I became a student at UNT I know others had to leave their hometowns behind. Through UPC and all of its diverse and inclusive events I have been able to play a role in making other students feel welcomed. Making others feel excited and at home at UNT is my favorite part of UPC.
Favorite program so far this year: North X North Texas is my favorite event of the year. What makes Denton different from other cities is its lively music scene. I love NXTX because it brings that love for live music that the city is known for to campus.
What are you looking foward to this year: This year I am looking forward to all of the free food being served at UPC events.
