Attention all NEW Summer term students:


All new international students are required to be screened for tuberculosis after beginning classes at UNT. ALL new students must make an appointment at the Health Center between June 20 and June 30 to have the TB screening done. ***To schedule an appointment, call 940-565-2333, press option 2, and say you want to schedule a TB appointment.*** When you go to the Health Center, you must bring three forms with you: the TB Screening Record, Medical History Form, and TB Screening Form. You should have filled out the forms at orientation. They must be filled out using black ink. Extra copies of the medical forms are available in the Student Counselors office, SYMR 214. If you have questions, you can speak to someone in SYMR 214. Students who do not complete the screening by June 30 will be taken out of class to go to the Health Center. They will receive an absence for the class that they miss to do this.

Bus schedulesUNT buses run on limited schedules in the summer term. Bus service ends at 5:30 p.m. and only operates Monday through Thursday. However, the Discovery Park route operates on Fridays. If you ride the bus, please check the summer schedule online at: http://www.unt.edu/transit. DormsIf you plan to live in the UNT dorms during the Fall semester, you must apply at: http://www.unt.edu/housing. Even if you live in a dorm this summer, you must reapply for the fall. You will not be able to stay in your room without filling out the housing application again and paying a deposit. If you have not applied already, you should do so right away. Housing is filling up quickly.

Every week, you will be given a new Speaking Challenge. A Speaking Challenge is an opportunity for you to use English outside the classroom. This week, your Speaking Challenge is to introduce yourself to a new IELI student who doesnt speak your language. If you are a new student, your challenge is to introduce yourself to a returning student who doesnt speak your language. Set a time to meet for coffee or lunch so that you can get to know each other. Talk about the resources that you have at IELI. Do you know where to go when you are sick? What should you do if you need help finding an apartment? There are many important resources to discuss. After your meeting, send Kristen an email (Kristen.Kershaw@unt.edu) to introduce your new friend!

Attention students in Levels 5/5, 5/6, or 6/6! If you plan to begin UNT classes Fall 2011 or Spring 2012 for a Bachelors or 2nd Bachelors degree, you must attend the Going to UNT meeting on Monday, June 20.
