During the 2012-2013 academic year UNCW had 199 students graduate from the Onslow Extension Site. Onslow Extension students come from a range of backgrounds and each student has a unique story, wether they are active duty military, veterans, military spouses, or local residents.

We are pleased to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of our students who have worked so hard to complete their degree programs often while serving as an active-duty member of our United States Armed Forces, working full-time jobs and raising a family.

Graduate Spotlight - Dana Abudayeh


Dana Abudayeh Graduate Spotlight UNCW Graduation 2013
Dana Abudayeh grew up in St. Louis, MO. After graduating from high school she quickly realized she needed to make some changes in her life, so at the age of 19, she decided to follow in her older brother's footsteps and join the Marine Corps. During her four-year enlistment she achieved the rank of Sergeant/E-5 with two meritorious promotions and served as the administrative clerk for the Commanding General of MCI West. As Dana prepared to leave the Marine Corps, her husband received orders to Camp Lejeune.
After the birth of their son, Dana attended Coastal Carolina Community College, receiving an Associate in Arts Degree, with a Pre-Major in Elementary Education. In the fall of 2011, Dana transferred to the University of North Carolina Wilmington Onslow Extension Site and began working on her Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. At UNCW Dana has been on the Dean's List every semester and has been a recipient of the Chancellor's Achievement Award three times. Through hard work, dedication and sacrifice she has maintained a 4.0 GPA.
