Why sponsor UNT's Orientation & Other Signature Transition Programs? 

Dear Valued Orientation Partner,

The University of North Texas welcomes over 15,000 students, parents, and family members to campus each year. For our students and their families, the orientation program offers a glimpse into campus life, and the sessions offer valuable information and resources about the college transition. Students receive academic advising and register for classes during orientation, and they also begin to build connections with their future peers, campus leaders, and the Denton community.

You have the unique opportunity to help us make a positive, lasting first impression by becoming a program sponsor of UNT Orientation and our other signature programs.  

The office of Orientation and Transition Programs serves as a central location for students to make connections across campus. Our programs and activities are intended to help facilitate successful academic and developmental transitions to UNT connecting students and their family members to campus resources, to faculty and staff, and to each other. 

Our signature programs include: 


Freshman and Transfer Orientation, which connect incoming students with current students, faculty and staff, while teaching about university resources, traditions, and academic expectations. Students receive academic advising in preparation for registering for classes.

Parent Orientation runs concurrently with Freshman Orientation and Transfer Orientation and gives family members an opportunity to learn about the many resources, services, and academic programs UNT has to offer.


UNT Family Weekend offers events for the entire family, including the President's Breakfast, a fun run, Scrappy's Extravaganza, and a football game. This signature event is usually held six weeks into the fall semester, although it is contingent on the football schedule.

Our office is also responsible for 

  • The Transfer Center
  • First Flight Activities
  • Mentoring Programs
  • Summer Send Off Parties

More information on these programs can be found on our website at http://transition.unt.edu

By partnering with us, you have the opportunity to reach many of North Texas' newest, and often most enthusiastic, consumers. Our partnership opportunities range from full-scale, comprehensive support of our programs to advertising and specific vendor participation events. But, if you don't find an opportunity that suits your needs, let us know. We look forward to discussing alternatives. If you are interested in providing in-kind donations, particularly gift certificates or prizes we can give away during our programs, please contact us.

We know UNT students and their families are going to shop in your stores, stay in your hotels, eat in your restaurants and take advantage of your services. The question is what are you doing to make sure they are connected to YOU?

We look forward to working with you as you cultivate those relationships.

Stephanie Brown
Director of Orientation and Transition Programs
