Taking Flight


Why should I participate?

Become confident in your abilities to articulate your UNCW experiences. Learn how to better demonstrate what you've learned in college.

" I think that the real life experiences that our instructors shared with us helped me the most. As silly or funny as many of them were, the honesty stuck with me and I ended up learning a lot"

" The informal conversations and continual learning about various opportunities and experiences that I can benefit from and assist others to benefit from as well"

" It's really great to discuss and speak about our time at UNCW. I never really reflect on my time here, I've just stayed busy so it's great to think about how much UNCW has really helped to prepare me for what's to come. I feel much more ready than before"
