UNCW students are sharing the university’s story
with alumni, parents and friends as part of the ANNUAL
GIVING PHONATHON. Last year student callers encouraged more
than 7,300 donors to pledge more than $466,000 to the university. In
this time of severe budget cuts, these donations are not for extras.
The gifts are used for library materials, classroom equipment, computers,
software and other technology, campus life programs, athletics and much
more to maintain the quality, educational experience that has become
a tradition at UNCW. Please consider
making your gift online.
UNCW TEAL RAINBOWS are available at the UNCW Bookstore and selected Wilmington area merchants. Call 910.962.3188 for more information.
DRESS LIKE A SEAHAWK – Redix at Wrightsville Beach now carries UNCW neckties and bowties by Vineyard Vines, in teal and yellow. View a photo gallery of other local merchants who carry licensed UNCW products and the items they have available. Other links: UNCW Bookstore | UNCWsports.com online store
ADMISSIONS – UNCW is one of the South’s best public undergraduate teaching institutions as evidenced by a high demand from talented students seeking admission, national recognition and growth in regionally relevant programs such as marine science, gerontology, psychology, public administration and film studies.
28-DAY CHALLENGE - Making every day count! We’re going the extra mile this year to reach our annual giving goals. And, we’re asking for YOUR help to get there. For each of the 28 days in February, we're looking for 28 alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents or friends to give their support. By making a gift, you will help ensure that UNCW continues on the road to success, reinforcing our commitment to excellence in teaching, scholarship, research, artistic achievement and service.
