"It was nice to meet other UNT parents who had the same concerns about their kiddos as me."
"Wished we could have done more! Good selection of events, so we can't do it all."
"Thank you so much for providing such a fun time for my family and me. We miss our UNT student being down the hall in her room, but seeing her on campus and having the opportunity to see some of the things she sees every day was reassuring. We are all still trying to adjust but I have no doubt that she made the right choice with UNT."
"My children were able to enjoy the game and the activities before the game together. We were able to converse in a relaxed environment without the pressures of being alone that can sometimes occur when a child begins to gain independence of her family."
