Fall Things to Get Excited for About at UNT

It might be 91-degrees still, but Summer is officially over and fall is upon us. Time to put those swimsuits away and prepare yourself for the new season. Just because things are getting colder, doesn’t mean it’s time to get sad. Here are some fall things to get excited for at UNT.

Fall Fashion

This new season’s cooler weather calls for a new wardrobe. Break out those fuzzy sweaters, trendy leggings, and fashion-polarizing Ugg boots.


The colder weather gives you an excuse to get a bit closer to that special somebody and snuggle.

Early Sunset

Fall means Day Light Savings time and an earlier sunset. There will be less time on campus of the sun beating down on you, and more brisk weather as you walk to classes.


Halloween is pretty much the best holiday.Think about it. Candy, costumes, and scaring people rather than buying them presents.

Candy Corn

While it’s technically available all year round, fall is the best time to consume this festive sweet. Plus, candy corn is pretty much the best candy of the season. There are people who don’t like candy corn, but they are wrong.

Pumpkin Spice Everything

Some people basically live for this time of year. It’s not just for Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks, but pumpkin spice EVERYTHING; Oreos, M&M’s, peanut butter, oatmeal, granola bars, bread, toaster pastries, Peeps, ice cream, biscotti, tea, and Twinkies, to name a few. The pumpkin spice treats during fall are endless, and we love it.


A much needed break from school and a holiday that involves stuffing your face. You get to see family, eat pie, and watch football. What isn’t there to love about this?

Horror Movies

TV has its share of horror with American Horror Story,The Walking Dead, Scream and iZombie, but there is something to be said about a feature length scare. From Nightmare on Elm Street to Saw to Child’s Play to Hell Raiser, there are plenty of horror franchises to enjoy this season.


After Thanksgiving comes holiday shopping and the beloved/dreaded Black Friday. Also, for introverts and extroverts alike, there’s Cyber Monday. Get deals in your PJ’s and avoid the crazy soccer moms trying to buy 10 TVs.

Nightmare Before Christmas

Pretty much the biggest #1stWorldProblems. Do I watch this Tim Burton masterpiece at Halloween or wait until Christmas? Is Jack Skellington is the biggest enigma of the holiday season, but we don’t mind. He will always have a place in our hearts.

Enjoy fall while you can, UNT!
