First Flight Expectations

Small Group Sessions

You’ll have 4 small group sessions during First Flight Week to help you build connections, learn about campus, what it takes to be a successful student here at UNT, and reflect on your experiences throughout the week. 

University 101

Our Community Presentation

Our community is an opportunity for you to learn more about our (UNT) values as an institution. You’ll also get to explore your own identity and discover how you fit into the mean green family. This is an opportunity to learn what it means to be a part of the mean green family, and how we can make our community safe and equitable for everyone.
