Mellissa Stallings

Exercise Science Major

UNCW 15'

Now that I am finally a senior, I can see that my time is running out here at UNCW. Looking back on my experience, one thing is for sure: the faculty and staff of the School of Health and Applied Human Sciences are some of the best! I cannot simply choose one professor that I would call my favorite. Every professor has made an impact on my success and learning experience. They come to school each day with enthusiasm and passion in order to provide us with the knowledge we need to build a future when we graduate. I have also found that not only the professors within Exercise Science are willing to lend a helping hand, but that many of the other professors in the department would be willing to help you the best they could. I'm proud to be graduating from from such a genuine department and I feel sure that I will leave here ready for the next step in my life!
