New Year’s Resolution Solutions

New Year. New You. Or at least, that’s how it’s supposed to go. Sometimes following through with the resolutions we set ends up harder than we thought. So, that’s where we come in. The Union has some great ideas on how to best take advantage of the services on campus to help you stay on track with your goals.

Be Less Stressed

The new Union also has a meditation room in a location convenient enough that you can stop by in-between classes to find your zen.

Get Better Grades

The University offers a lot of different options depending on your major. The Writing Lab is available for editing papers, the Math Lab  can help with your math class, and the Learning Center is there for just about all other subjects.

Many of the resources that UNT offers are included in your tuition, so you should be using them!

Gym membership is already included in your UNT tuition. The Pohl Recreational Center is a state-of-the art workout facility. There’s something for everyone at the Rec. Included in your tuition is access to weight machines, cardio equipment, swimming pool, multipurpose indoor courts, outside courts, and free weights. For additional fees, you can use one of the university’s certified personal trainers, take a group exercise class, or use UNT’s massive rock climbing wall.
