First Flight Week


First Flight is UNT's official welcome week program. This week is designed to help new students begin their college experience on the right foot. From programs that prepare you for the upcoming educational opportunities to programs where you get to let loose and meet fellow peers, there is something for everyone!

Sunday, August 15 - Sunday, August 22, 2021

All new freshman students are required to participate in First Flight Week. All freshmen will be assigned a First Flight Leader and will participate in small group meetings, University 101 sessions, and have the opportunity to attend programs throughout the week. 


If you live on-campus, First Flight check-in takes place at your residence hall. When you arrive for Mean Green Move-In, check-in at your residence hall front desk. By checking in to your hall, you are checking in for First Flight Week.
