Transfer Student Spotlight


Sydney, majoring in Criminology and Sociology

I chose to transfer to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in the Fall of 2014 because I wanted to be at a University that better suited my major, criminology. My transition into UNCW was very organized thanks to the incredible support and guidance of the transfer student program.  The location of UNCW was also very appealing to me because of its close proximity to many different attractions, including the beach.

My time at UNCW has been filled with many different activities, so I have never been bored.  I am involved in the Criminology and Sociology club on campus, which holds meetings every two weeks and have had the opportunity to meet law enforcement personnel from across the state.  I am also involved in Tau Sigma, the National Honors Society for transfer students and have been given the opportunity to volunteer at events such as the Globetrotters game and for Habitat for Humanity.  I have also recently been invited into Sigma Alpha Lambda, the National Leadership and Honors Organization, which encourages community involvement on and off campus and also creates opportunities such as internships, scholarships, and awards for involvement in the organization.

Time management is very important when going to college and is a skill that will prove useful after college.  Academics are a large part of what going to college is about, but it can be easy to get sucked down into only doing schoolwork and leaving out the getting involved part.  Being involved on campus does not only create opportunities, it also builds relationships that can last a lifetime.
