    Another sports center. How about giving the iordinary student a break, instead of spending all this money on athletics. After athleties get their scholarships and leave school , what are they qualified to do? The athletes have everything handed to them on a silver paltter, including passing grades. I am not going to loose sleep about this.

      Sounds like someone is definitely not a fan of sports.

    What a crock!!! The 20 million dollar naming rights will help by allowing a larger portion of the fee to go to the athletic budget??? That is NOT what the tuition fee increase was approved for?!?!? How about the money from the naming rights going to reduce, or to eliminate the fee increase??? Basically, the students of UNT have just been scammed.

    Not true. A good portion of this deal involves increased technological capabilities for ALL students at UNT. This is why it was such wonderful move for UNT to strike a deal with Apogee. Apogee already has a full-time field operations office on campus.
