Hello, my name is Fernanda Reyes and I am the Parent Programs Coordinator at UNT. I am a bilingual (!hablo Español!), first-generation college graduate and a Fort Worth, TX native. I recently graduated from Southern Methodist University ('21) with my Master in Higher Education and I have a passion for education, families, and helping others reach their full potential.

I started my role on May 26 and hit the ground running with hosting in-person parent orientations ever since. With classes starting soon, I am super excited to stay connected with you and host you and your family at upcoming events happening on campus.

I am here to serve you and your Eagle, so if you have any questions, please email me at
