The Student Accounts and Cashier's Office welcomes our Summer 2017 Intern Randy Franks

Randy Franks

Hello all, my name is Randy Franks. I am a recent transfer to UNCW majoring in accounting. I plan on graduating in December of 2018 and applying to the MSA program here at UNCW. I am from Jonesboro, GA and moved to NC while in the Marine Corps. My favorite pastimes are going to the gym, playing video games, and eating. I'd also really like to get into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and archery. I'm very thankful that I have been given this opportunity to gain experience and make my ambitions a reality. I look forward to meeting new people and broadening my horizons at UNCW.

 Spring 2017 Intern Natalia Salgado

Picture of Natalia Salgado
Hello, my name is Natalia Salgado. I am a senior student majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting. I am graduating this semester but will be coming back to UNCW next year to pursue a Master of Science in Accountancy. I am originally from Argentina, and have been living in Wilmington for almost 3 years. When I’m not at school/studying I enjoy going on walks with my dog Bo, especially to the beach, doing yoga and crocheting. I’m excited to be able to experience what goes on “behind the scenes” that contributes to making UNCW such a great place.

Welcome Annette Carrico, Our new Cashier!

Hello, my name is Annette Carrico.  I’m a North Carolina native and have lived in Wilmington since 2007.  My daughter graduated with a degree in Environmental Science from UNCW this December.  I have a banking background and I am so happy to be here at UNCW.  It is a joy to help the students and be part of their experience as they navigate this exciting time in their lives.
