Cole Tillett ’20

August 14, 2018

Cole Tillett ’20 sees his role as student body president as an opportunity to learn valuable life lessons and have experiences that will stay with him beyond his time at UNCW.

“More importantly, this role inspires me to make this extraordinary campus even better for the community it serves,” said Tillett. “I look forward to waking up every day and facing a new challenge, a new opportunity and the chance to do good by this campus.”

Tillett, a business administration major and an Emmett and Gladys Corbett Scholarship recipient, aspires to continue a career of public service by becoming a teacher or a member of local or state government.

He is involved in the Honors College, student government and Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society. He previously served as the Student Honors Advisory Committee vice president, Historical Society vice president, UNCWeekends operations facilitator, Swingin’ Seahawks Dance Club executive member and an Honors mentor.

“When I came to UNCW, the impression that I was given was that I won’t be another number, and my experience so far has proved that,” he said. “Quality over quantity is the culture here, and I believe that is our secret to continuing success.”
