Class Cause

Each year the incoming Freshman Class selects a cause to support throughout their four years at UNT. This is an opportunity for students to fundraise, volunteer, and advocate for their cause. The purpose of this program is to help connect students to their classmates as well as give back to the community.

Class Canvas Pages

Each class has a Blackboard page which contains:

  • Calendar of Transition Programs
  • Programs related to their Class Programming Outcomes
  • Checklists of things to do that year based on classification
  • Learning Modules
  • Announcements about upcoming events

Class Pin

Each year students have the opportunity to earn their class pin. Students collect their pins from each year and wear them at graduation. To earn a pin students must complete the designated activities for their pins.
