UNCW Military Student Spotlight
Victoria, Social Work Major
United States Marines Veteran


I served in the United States Marine Corpsfrom 2010 to 2014. In this picture I was a LCpl. This picture was taken on Camp Dwyer in Afghanistan in 2012 in the beginning of my deployment. I was an 0411, maintenance management specialist. I am now in my second year at UNCW.

The one tip that I would give to an incoming military affiliated student is that when school starts to be challenging and difficult, think back to when you were in the service, and remember that what you did then was more challenging then school can ever be.
