in my car after i get to campus absurdly early to get a parking spot

Willis on the 4th floor. I'm a commuter so there isn't really anywhere for people who live off campus to sleep. I wish there was.

I don’t know if it is still there, but back in the 90’s there was this place below the stairs on the ground level of Wooten Hall that you can lay out and take a nap. Lots of room. People would be crashed out. There was a lot of air movement like it was above the A/C unit and/or ventilation ducts, so that provided perfect white noise if you sleep well to that.

Willis 4th floor after a sub sandwich and before Dr Mcentires 3pm class!

In my room from 8am-10pm

Lower level of Gateway Center.

What is sleep? #SeniorMediaArtsMajor

Willis 4th floor or the bottom floor. Dorm room when I used to live there. Too bad there aren't some nap spots for commuters. Plenty of lounge areas but not ideal for napping unless you don't care about it.

I just no one says in class!

No time for naps, ugh😴

In the class😂😂 during the lecture😂😂😂

In class

Home.

Maple hall '97

In class! Makes time fly.

Meet Andria Sims, a non-traditional student in the UNT College of Business Graduate Programs. After putting her dream on hold for 17 years, Andria was given the opportunity to finish earning her bachelor’s degree. Despite a 2-hour commute (one way), she set a goal to graduate college before her daughters graduated high school. She wanted to tell them, “Mom is a college graduate.” Andria walked across the stage in May with a 4.0 GPA in both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. Andria, you make us #UNTproud! What’s your #myUNT story?

I was a student in the late 60’s and my maiden name was Fouts. Everyone was always asking if I was part of the Fouts family the field was named after. Sadly my answer was no. My dad used to jokingly say Dan Fouts(the quarterback) was his son!

Taking my wife and kids to the first home game of the year! We had a blast watching the game and listening to the Green Brigade who my oldest daughter is hoping to be able to join in a couple years.

So glad our daughter choose UNT, great school & community! GMG💚🦅💚 Would love to attend another game!!!

Last nights awesome game with my freshman daughter!! Go Mean Green!!

Supporting our daughter at her volleyball 🏐 game.

My eagle and I!

I met my (now) husband at UNT! 😊😍💚

We are both alumni and live in Denton and make it a point to continue to support our University and keep our kiddo involved! We have so many memories at UNT it's hard to choose! Heart of Dallas Bowl is a FAV though! Such an awesome win and fun New Years Day!

I cannot find the picture, but I'll keep looking. My favorite memory of UNT football was back in the early 2000's the students swarmed the field and brought down the goal post in celebration of making it to a bowl game!! The excitement and joy everyone had was palpable that night!

500 Wins the first of 2 last second wins. Love UNT and my kid in the Green Brigade ! #bowlbound #lightthetower #gomeangreen

Well my son is only a sophomore but so far this is my favorite memory on camera, hanging out at my first game with our family and his girlfriends' family! We make an awesome UNT #meangreenfamily!!!!

When UNT scored in the last minute of the game vs UTSA for the win. 🤓

We are ready for Scrappy and cold weather ❄️☃️❄️

I am proud of the dedication of all the players until the end of the game! Go Mean Green!

Daddy and Daughter Last night after the win!

After one game...an eagle is born! #ditchedhishat #meangreen

Proud mom and proud grandma! We love UNT and would love to cheer on the Mean Green!

Sent a photo of Mean Joe Green who played on NTSU football while I was there!

The OT win at Rice last year.

First UNT football game as a Freshman in 2012! Go MEAN GREEN!

If people disagree with Van Jones coming, I wonder how you deal with living in Austin on a daily basis.

Thank you all for the tremendous outpour of love and support. It doesn’t make things easier, but it helps knowing there is so much love!!!! I am in awe by the kindness and love! I know this means so much to our family

Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer East and his family and friends. Many thanks to all of the TTU PD and Lubbock PD for keeping our students safe.

Thanks TTU...I'm proud my kids have/are all Red Raiders! We are trusting Jesus with this one. Prayers for several families. Many many lives have been destroyed.

Thank you Officer East for your sacrifice and service. May God bless your family. My heart aches for you all. #Techstrong

Prayers for his family and his Red Raider family. My daughter and son-in-law are Red Raiders and we chose TT because it seemed so safe and normal. It's a shame that this event will change the aura of TT for many people. Wish our elected officials would declare war on the drug industry, both illegal and legal. Unfortunately, the drug industry contributes big bucks to politicians.

Mi más sentido pésame para la familia del Oficial que Dios lo tenga en su gloria y yo como madre siempre voy a llevarlo en mi corazón porque el dio su vida para proteger a los estudiantes de la Universidad de Texas Tech y gracias por proteger a mi hijo que es uno de los estudiantes para mi el es un Héroe Dios lo tenga en su gloria

God Bless Texas Tech and Officer East. We stand together in our time of sorrow. Sending prayers and Love.

God bless officer East and his family and the Texas Tech family. One of the scariest things was my daughter contacting me about the situation and thank god she was at home, but here friends were on lock down on campus. Thank you Tech for all the updates and my heart is breaking for officer East family and friends.

This Trinity Tiger is keeping the Red Raider family and the TTU and Lubbock Police Departments in my heart and prayers ♥️🙏♥️

I’m always a proud Red Raider, but especially proud seeing these beautiful pictures. God Bless officer East and his family. 🖤💙🖤

Mis condolencias a la familia del Oficial. Que Dios lo tenga en su gloria. Dio la vida en el servicio y para protección de los estudiantes. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Praying for peace & comfort to surround officer East’s Family & TTU community during this difficult time.

Proud to be a Red Raider!!!!!!

Was he the officer that brought him in ? Or did he just happen to be at the police station? Also, did the young man have a gun or did he grab one from one of the officers?

Dios lo tenga en su gloria porque murió cumpliendo con su deber. Un héroe que defendió a nuestros hijos. Mis condolencias a su familia.

May God comfort the family of the 👮. And the families and the students that have had to go through this frightening time.
