UNCW Military Student Spotlight
Darius, Geography major and Geospatial Information Systems Minor
United States Air Force Veteran
I am a student veteran and NC native. I am a rising senior here at UNCW and a geography major concentrating in Geospatial Information Systems and satellite imagery. I chose geography because I was intrigued with the people I had met and the places I had seen after traveling the world with the United States Air Force. I have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and have had my fair share of missions in the middle east.
I applied to UNCW as a transfer student and was accepted shortly thereafter. After some apprehensive thoughts, I packed up all of my belongings and moved down to warm and wonderful Wilmington sight unseen. After my first semester, I quickly found my niche in life and was back to my old self. I had the opportunity to start working in the Admissions office as a guest relations specialist. I found a passion for helping people and was recently promoted to the student manager. The atmosphere here at UNCW has literally replenished my soul and has gave me a place where I feel at home. I am grateful for the veteran resources we have on campus and for the knowledgeable staff on hand. Our school is very military friendly and I would encourage anyone to apply!
