How does UNT support the transition for international students?

I am thinking of applying to UNT for MS in Computer science. How does UNT support the transition for international students, especially in terms of cultural adaptation and networking?

The university offers cultural events, workshops, and mentorship programs to help international students integrate. There’s a supportive community that understands the challenges of being an international student.

One such event in global encounters one can meet students from around the world and experience authentic, home cooked meals at Global EncoUNTers. Global EncoUNTers is an educational and social event series hosted by international students/organizations that have volunteered to present their culture, history and heritage to the UNT community. The informative presentation, Q&A sessions and traditional foods help to strengthen cross-cultural understanding, appreciation and friendship.

Other such events are:
