On April 18, 2013, UNCW hosted the 3rd annual Get to know PHIL event. PHIL is more than just a cute face - he represents the thousand of donors who give back to UNCW each year.
Over 600 students stopped by to write a heartfelt message of thanks to UNCW's donors and celebrate all that your gifts make possible on our campus. Below is a small section of those messages for you to enjoy.
