UNT athletic department noted in “USA Today” story about sexual misconduct

On Friday, Feb. 6, freelance reporter Kenny Jacoby released a story on USA Today highlighting seven university athletic departments that recruited athletes with a history of sexual offenses, including UNT. Prior to and after the publishing of Jacoby’s article, the UNT athletic department claims it was unaware of the recruits’ histories prior to their recruitment.

New housing policy leaves upperclassmen with limited options

New UNT Housing rule changes will allow incoming freshman to live in Mozart and possibly Santa Fe for the 2020-21 academic year, leaving upperclassmen with the limited option of single-occupancy dorms for on-campus housing.  The new policy has left many upperclassmen concerned about where they will be living next year, according to Housing Ambassador Collin Renfro.  “Housing has decided to reserve more room space on campus for freshman only, which decreased the amount of rooms available for upperclassmen,” Renfro said....

You’ve probably already forgot about the A&M-Commerce shooting by now

On Feb. 3, a gunman opened fire in a residence hall at Texas A&M-Commerce, killing two people and injuring a two-year-old. Residence halls are meant to be a place of camaraderie among students where activities, studying, independence and everyday life happens whilst continuing your educational career. However, panic and fear set in when gunshots were fired in a place meant to bring people together. This only further begs the question, is nowhere safe anymore? Shootings are so commonplace in America now...
