Logan Massengill on the UNCW campus

May 12, 2022

Logan Massengill’s brother attended UNCW (Class of 2020) and absolutely LOVED it. She visited him on campus, and knew she would love being a Seahawk, too.

Once enrolled, the business administration major (double concentration in international business and marketing professional selling) and Spanish and leadership studies minor wasted no time earning her wings. Freshman year, she founded Circle K International; sophomore year she co-founded “Swipes for Seahawks,” a meal donation program; and her junior year she founded the International Business Student Association.

Massengill also participated in Club Volleyball, served as an Admissions tour guide, a Cameron School of Business Senior Peer Advisor, a Study Abroad Ambassador and completed three internships in two years.

While studying abroad in Spain in the spring of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic began. Massengill, who is fluent in Spanish, had to flee the country and return to the U.S. During the five-day journey back, she contracted Covid, making her one of the first UNCW students to be officially diagnosed with the virus.

“My Spaniard professors were amazing and I was able to navigate the six-hour time difference and continue my classes online,” she said.

Two years later, she ventured abroad again for The Prague Consulting Project. A group of business students were “hired” by Budweiser Budvar (the original Budweiser in the Czech Republic) to create a market entry strategy for South Korea. She was a project manager for the course and the cohort flew to Prague to present to C-suite executives.

Massengill was named a "Top 10 Marketing Student" every semester while a student and received the E.M. West Award, which honors CSB’s most outstanding graduate. She is grateful for “the amazing and welcoming faculty” she met through class and Club Volleyball.

“Particularly in the business school, my professors were always in my corner checking in and pushing me to be the best that I can,” she said.
