A university north of Dallas in Denton. It is one of the best music colleges in the country. It is best known for its jazz program (the first in the country) and is considered one of the best. It has also increased spending for the science departments which are considered fairly good. Though they have a high acceptance rate, the musicians accepted into the performance program are at the level of a conservatory.

It is currently working on attaining the tier one status, and is one of the front runners in the state of Texas, including UTD and UTA. It is currently ranked very high on the list of Texas colleges and universities.

Due to the age of the campus, it has many older buildings in the presence of newer buildings creating a disjointed look to the campus. However, the most recent additions to the campus are aesthetically pleasing (such as Honors Hall and the Murchson Performing Arts Center. as well as some of the older ones. Many parts require renovation.

The football team is also one of the worst in its division. Despite this, they have received funding for a new football stadium. In contrast, the basketball team is fairly good.

A large (~35,000 students) public university in Denton, Texas. Known for its art, music, philosophy, education and psychology programs. Home to the 4 time grammy nominated One'O Clock Lab Band, the school's jazz program has been ranked #1 in the nation every year since 1994, when News and World Report started ranking jazz programs.

Science and engineering at the school has traditionally taken a back seat to the arts and soft sciences, however recently the school has created a large research compound north of campus and greatly expanded its scientific research budget.

It also has a notoriously bad football team, a vibrant local music scene and an overpopulation of hippies/hipsters.
