One of the goals of the Student Activities Center is to help students get connected and involved on campus, to maximize their collegiate experience. Through a variety of events, services, and resources, the office provides students and student organizations with opportunities to connect to the university and to other students. Student Activities promotes a sense of community and loyalty to the University while serving to enhance the social, intellectual, and developmental growth of students as individuals or as members of organizations. It does this through three main areas: campus-wide events and traditions; off-campus student services; and student organization services.
The Coordinator of Campus-Wide Events and Traditions is a member of the Student Activities Center team and is responsible for planning large-scale events and developing spirit and traditions at UNT. While this position focuses on event planning, the primary aim is to foster the mission of the Student Activities Center, Division of Student Affairs, and University of North Texas.
