Green Pages

New Advertising Platform Released for UNT Student Entrepreneurs

UNT SGA Releases the Green Pages, a resource for student entrepreneurs and students seeking services

Look no further, the UNT Student Government Association is proud to announce the launch of the Green Pages – the campus directory for student entrepreneurs! The Green Pages is a resource that will enable student musicians, hair stylists, artists, carpenters, fashion designers, photographers, or other entrepreneurs to advertise their skills to students and the UNT community to grow their brand and make new connections at UNT.

“Too many UNT students have talents or skills that go unnoticed by people outside of their friend group. As a growing university full of business-minded innovative students, I felt that a resource for students to advertise and locate UNT student entrepreneurs was lacking on our campus. With limited opportunity to advertise on campus due to various regulations, the Green Pages was made to fill the gap,” SGA Director of Campus Outreach Andrea Masamba, said.

While only Students can be featured on the Green Pages, Students, Faculty and Staff may use this resource to find contacts to student entrepreneurs by searching “UNT Green Pages” on Facebook to join the group or by using this link to instantly visit the page. To advertise a business, students must submit a brief application on OrgSync to provide information about their business.

Current listings on the Green Pages include a car detailer, a photographer, and a website created to promote artists in the Denton community, (www.dentongallery.com) with several applications to follow following an enrollment and eligibility check to ensure that all posts on the Green Pages are currently enrolled UNT students.

For more information on who is eligible to be featured on the Green Pages, the quality of services listed on the Green Pages, and student guidance when using this resource please refer to the Green Pages FAQ and Green Pages Liability document located in the “Files” category on the Green Pages.
Disclaimer: UNT shall not be responsible for the actions of the students, faculty or staff participating in the SGA Green Pages. SGA does not recommend nor endorse any student business listed on this page, nor does SGA guarantee the quality of services rendered. Customers and businesses are strongly encouraged to use common sense when connecting with each other.
