First Flight Week and Spring Soar
First Flight Week is UNT's official welcome program for incoming students. It takes place before the
fall semester. Spring Soar is an extension of First Flight that takes place before

experience on the right foot. From programs that prepare you for the upcoming educational
opportunities to programs where you get to let loose and meet fellow peers, there
is something for everyone! First Flight is mandatory for all new freshmen.
UNT Admitted Students Day
UNT Admitted Students Day is a chance for incoming freshmen to get an insider's view of college life on campus

also providing opportunities to meet other new students in small group settings.
We look forward to meeting you and showing off our beautiful campus! We invite you
to schedule an in-person or guided virtual tour or speak with one of our current student Eagle Ambassadors to get an insider's view
of everything UNT has to offer. Send us an email, and we'll connect you with a student today!
