I live on-campus and I am involved in many clubs and organizations including Water Ski Club, Communication Studies Society, Lambda Pi Eta Communication Honor Society, Cru, and L.O.A.F. (Loved Ones of the Armed Forces). I love the outdoors and everything that comes with it including running, camping, and kayaking. I am excited to meet you on your campus tour and I am honored to begin this adventure with you!
Hi, my name is Anna Joy and I am a junior here at UNCW. I am from a small town in North Carolina about an hour away from UNCW. I transferred fall of 2012 from a North Carolina Community College. I am a Communication Studies major with a focus in Public Relations and I plan on graduating in May 2015.
Hi, my name is Bayley! I am a business major with a concentration in marketing. I was born and raised in New York state where I attended a four-year college my freshman year. I transferred to UNCW in the fall of my sophomore year.
I currently live off-campus and commute to class. I’m involved in the Transfer Student Organization (TSO) and Yoga club here on campus. I love to be outside and I live for those moments when I laugh so hard my eyes water!
Hi, my name is Drew. I was born and raised in North Carolina. I attended a four-year university right out of high school, and transferred to UNCW as a junior. My major is in Communication Studies, specifically focused on Public Relations.
I’m currently living off-campus in an apartment about a mile away, which is very convenient. I am an active member of the Communication Studies Society and they have helped integrate me into both the campus and my major very quickly.
Hi, my name is Stephanie! I’m from a small town just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. I transferred to UNCW after I earned my Associate in Arts Degree for Pre-Major Special Education. I’m majoring in Special Education and my goal is to teach children who have autism.
I live on campus and plan on staying on campus until I graduate. I work as a Desk Receptionist with Housing and Residence Life. I’m involved with the Transfer Student Organization, Tau Sigma National Honor Society, Kappa Delta Pi, the Student Council for Exceptional Children, Cru, and the American Sign Language Club. I’m also a Teal Bridge Mentor, which is a program to help new transfer students with their transition to UNCW. Some of my interests and hobbies include music, books, movies, photography, going to the beach, spending time with friends and family, and just enjoying life.
Hi, my name is Vanessa. I am from North Carolina and transferred from a North Carolina Community College. I am majoring in Accounting and minoring in Psychology.
I live and work off campus. I am currently a member of the Transfer Student Organization (TSO) and I am on the UNCW dance team. UNCW is a great University, it is beautiful and an eco-friendly institution. Go Seahawks!!
