Hi, my name is Ally and I am a junior here at UNCW! I am originally from Albertville Minnesota, which is about 20 hours away. I transferred to UNCW at the beginning of my junior year from a school in Minnesota called St. Cloud State. I am a psychology major with a neuroscience minor. I will be graduating in the Spring of 2016 and hope to attend graduate school after that.
I currently live off campus with one roommate. I am involved in psychology circle and I work as a dubraiser on campus. I love going to the beach, hanging with friends, and overall being here at UNCW!

Hi, my name is Drew and I’m a senior here at UNCW. I was born and raised in North Carolina and I’ve been in Wilmington for a couple of years now. I originally attended Campbell University right out of high school, and transferred to UNCW as a junior in the Fall of 2013. My major is in Communication Studies focusing on Public Relations and minoring in History.
I’m currently living just off-campus in an apartment and have no trouble getting to campus.

Hi! Kyle here. I’m from Cody, Wyoming and I am a sophomore here at UNCW. I am majoring in Psychology with a Minor in Biology. I have the intention of going to Medical school after my time here at UNCW. I transferred to UNCW after thirteen years in the United States Marine Corps on active duty.

Currently, I am the Vice President of the Student Veterans Organization (SVO) and a Teal Guide. I live in Jacksonville, North Carolina with my lovely wife Lacy and two daughters, Abigail and Rosalie, I commute to campus every day. I am truly enjoying my experience here at UNCW, and am ready to share with however will listen.
