Texas Woman’s University Denton Campus provides services to both first-year and transfer students. No matter what your academic or social needs may be, TWU is equipped to assist students in becoming successful individuals. These are a few of the facilities and student organizations campus has to offer:
TWU’s Blagg-Huey Library offers different services including free access to computers, printing, scanning, the research datebase and reservations for study rooms.
Located on the second floor of the library in Suite 220 the Pioneer Center for Student Excellence provides collaborating programs and services to help students achieve their academic and career goals. At the Pioneer Center, students search internships, attend academic coaching sessions, participate in workshops, and learn about study abroad opportunities, which are some of the many services offered. Executive Director of the Pioneer Center for Student Excellence Dr. Joshua Adams states that the facility is here to serve students and keep them connected to all resources they need in order to be academically successful. “It is important for first-year students, whether freshman or transfer, to connect early in the academic career in order to maximize opportunity. It is never too early to begin thinking about an internship, where to study abroad, or brush up on academic skills,” Adams said.
