The themed community UNT Serves! Living Learning Community provides an opportunity for freshman students from all majors to participate in community engagement, service, and leadership. Students will learn about complex social issues and how our communities come together to address these issues. Themes include youth and education, health, hunger, human rights, animal welfare, environmental/sustainability, and much more! UNT Serves! meets once a week as a floor to explore these topics in depth – alongside the UNT Serves! Resident Assistant, a UNT staff member will help lead a discussion on the issue and a community organization or non-profit will talk about how they work to solve the issue. After learning about each issue, UNT Serves! students will participate in a variety of service projects decided on by the floor in Denton and the UNT community.

"The best part about UNT SERVES! is the way it transforms ‘living in a dorm’ into ‘living in a community.’ You meet your neighbors, become friends with them, and actually care about them. I think this feeling eventually expands to the Denton community, because of what you’re exposed to in UNT SERVES!." - Chance Herrington, freshman
"This year has been amazing! I’ve made so many good friends. I’ve been introduced to so many resources that will benefit me for years to come. I wish all incoming freshmen could share this type of experience. It changes you." - Alana Murell, freshman
