University Program Council, more commonly known as just UPC, is a student-run organization located on campus which specializes in areas of student involvement by holding numerous events catered specifically for students. A large range of events are regularly held by the organization, including film screenings, live music, and art exhibits among many other very versatile events. Best of all, every event is completely free for every student.

UPC is the central headquarters of student involvement on campus and anyone looking to find the first jumping-off point into involvement should look no further than UPC.

As soon as I walked into the UPC office, I was warmly greeted by numerous members who were smiling ear to ear. They made it their personal mission to make sure that what I came in there for was taken care of in a welcoming and extremely personal manner. Because UPC is filled with so many wonderful and helpful members, it is obvious as to why there are so many members in the organization; their personal goal is to make each and every student feel welcomed and to ensure that when students who are involved in their organization, and even those who aren’t, still feel like they are.

UPC member and public relations senior Cameron Harlow enjoys being able to see all different types of students get involved in UPC events around campus.

“I love seeing all of the new and old students who are so eager to get involved in our organization to help other students have fun,” Harlow said. “After having and planning all of these amazing events and then seeing all of these students who get so involved in them having so much fun is easily the best part about being in UPC.”

Getting involved in organizations during college sounds like a redundant idea you have heard from just about everyone, but UPC has a firm grasp on exactly what it means to be truly involved on campus. The people you meet, the events you attend and the fun you are bound to have truly come alive in UPC.

UPC member and history sophomore Marlene Salgado reaps the benefits of student involvement with UPC in the best way.

“All of the unique people you meet when you get involved in this organization is just amazing,” Salgado said. “There is also a sense that you feel like you are giving back to UNT in a way when you plan and participate in all of these events.”

I may not have been in the UPC office for very long, but the impression its members left will be one that sticks with me when I remember how amazing the student ran organizations and the students are at UNT.
