First Flight Week

First Flight 2014: UNT's Official Welcome Program

Sunday, August 17 - Sunday, August 24

We believe every UNT student has the potential to succeed.  We also know that the transition to college can often be difficult as you begin to navigate a new environment where you are now responsible for all of your decisions—both positive and negative. Part of our responsibility is to help you shape your college experience in a way that sets you up for this success. You are an important member of our university community and we want to make sure you, too, feel like an integral member of it.

To help you start on the right foot, all new freshmen will be required to participate in First Flight, UNT’s official welcome week program. First Flight consists of a series of events all geared toward starting your first semester on the right foot. Ultimately, by the end of First Flight, we want you to feel prepared, have a sense of what a healthy college lifestyle looks like, feel connected to the university community, and already be thinking about your future!

All new freshmen must check in for First Flight on Sunday, August 17 between 9:00 am – 4:00 pm in Crumley Park. Once you check in, regardless of if you live on campus or will be commuting to campus, you should plan to spend the week at UNT. Attendance will be taken at all First Flight events.

Although First Flight is mandatory for all new freshmen, new transfers and continuing students are also encouraged to attend any programs of interest to them.

NOTE:  Students will be expected to commute to and from their fall home for all First Flight Week events.  The office of Orientation and Transition Programs will not provide housing to students.
