The Most Famous Dallas University Graduates and Attendees

Recommended Posts

University of North Texas

Let’s start with you, Mean Green. The Dentonites. With a wicked music program like yours, it’s no wonder people come pouring in with big rock star dreams. So what have you, UNT, produced? 

Norah Jones: singer, Grapevine native, the woman born to be the perfect soundtrack to a lazy summer afternoon. Was a member of the UNT Jazz Singers.

Maren Morris: singer, Arlington native, a travel-size Kelly Clarkson, if Clarkson never left the South emotionally.

Dr. Phil: the guy who really keeps us all going.

Jason West: co-creator of Call of Duty.

Me thinks you left out Michael Martin Murphy.  I think he attended NTSU for a short while.  He was in the NT folk music club back in the early  '60's.

From his website:

"After briefly attending the University of North Texas (which had its own thriving music school), Murphey transferred to UCLA and worked his way through college as a singer / songwriter while excelling as a student of poetry, songwriter and performer."
