Heidi

Teal Guide Heidi

My name is Heidi and I just transferred to UNCW this semester. I’ve lived in my hometown of Kernersville all my life. I went to Forsyth Technical Community College where I graduated with an Associates in Fine Arts. While at UNCW I will be working on getting a degree in Theatre with a concentration in Stage Management and a minor in History.  Once I leave UNCW, I hope to briefly become an entertainment technician for cruise ships so that I can get paid to travel the world and work backstage. After I get traveling out of my system, if that’s even possible, I hope to join a Broadway stage as a Stage Manager. If not, I have many, many job options up my sleeve as a theatrical technician.

Hey there, my name is Courtney! I am from Albany, New York. I am a senior majoring in Psychology and am currently prepping for law school. I received my Associate’s in Science degree in Human Services from a community college back home in New York.

I transferred here Fall 2016! I live on campus with three roommates and I am currently involved in the Transfer to Teal program! I put a lot of time into keeping my grades up and love to spend time with my family. This campus has plenty of opportunities for whatever you are interested in and I am very excited to meet and welcome all of you to UNCW! Go Seahawks!

Teal Guide Madison

Hi!! I’m a Junior from Kernersville, NC which is basically in between Greensboro and Winston-Salem. I am a Business major with Finance and Management concentrations. I transferred my sophomore year from UNC-Charlotte. I have fallen in love with Wilmington and am so happy to call this place home!

Outside of class I recently started working at the front desk in the admissions office. I am in Chi Omega Fraternity which although the name can seem confusing is actually a sorority! During the summers I work at a summer camp in King, NC. I absolutely love kids and hope to work with a non-profit such as the YMCA.

Caroline

Teal Guide Caroline

I was born in New York City, and raised in the Bronx, NY. I attended CUNY College of Staten Island before I joined the Army. I married my high school sweetheart in 2009, who is also a Marine. We have two of the most wonderful kids (I may be a little biased), Xavier (4) and Olivia (2). I transferred to UNCW in the summer of 2017 as a Biology major from Campbell University Camp Lejeune Extension. I am a pre-health student (PA/MD).

On my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends, going to the beach, impromptu road trips, and shadowing physicians. I also volunteer with Pender County EMS/Fire and do yoga to keep my sanity!

Kathryn 

Teal Guide Kathryn

I am born and raised in NC and am from the lovely town of Wake Forest. I have a younger sister who also just started UNCW as a freshmen.  After High school, I attended Louisburg College and graduated with my Associates of Arts degree. At Louisburg College I was involved in just about everything possible. As a member of the Phi Beta Lambda Business Fraternity, I competed in the Social Media Campaign event and found my passion for marketing and advertising through online platforms.

I loved my time at Louisburg but I'm excited for something new! I moved down to Wilmington this past June and began working at a daycare. As I start my first semester as a Junior, I am looking forward to becoming involved at UNCW. My favorite part so far is being part of the UNCW Girl's Ultimate Frisbee Team, Seaweed.

I currently live off campus with my roommate. She has a dog named Cammi who I love very much. I love to go to the beach, hang out with my friends and sisters. I am majoring in International Studies. I would like to teach English as a second language in another country. I have a passion for the outdoors so I would like to incorporate that into my professional career.

Morgan

Teal Guide Morgan

Hello everyone! I am originally from Salisbury, Maryland, where I was born and raised.  I transferred to UNCW in the fall of 2016 after getting my Associate’s degree from Wor-Wic Community College. I am currently a senior, majoring in Recreational Therapy. After completing my Bachelor’s degree at UNCW, I plan to complete my Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy and who knows, maybe one day my Doctorate!

Currently I am living on campus and I have to say it was a great choice, being new to UNCW and Wilmington in general. In my free time I enjoy volunteering with individuals with special needs. There’s nothing better than seeing an individual light up when they get something right! I’m currently involved in the Transfer to Teal tour program, and I am a mentor for a transfer specific class on campus. UNCW has truly become my new home and I hope one day you will feel the same!

Danielle

Teal Guide Danielle

Hi! My name is Danielle and this is my first semester at UNCW. I moved to Wilmington in May 2017 after completing my associate’s degree from Wake Tech in Raleigh and am so excited to begin my journey to a bachelor’s degree. After working in a preschool, I realized that what I really wanted was to work with children while simultaneously helping them. Play therapy became an option. I researched the field a little more and decided that the only way to get there was to go back to school. I began my journey of completing my associate’s degree. I always knew UNCW was here, I knew a few people that graduated from UNCW, and it was always in the back of my mind. But the minute I stepped on campus, I felt at home. I loved everything about this place; from the ponds on campus to Chancellor’s walk to the sea hawk out front and especially the fact that the beach is ten minutes away. I knew that I needed to be here and a year later, my two cats and I are here. I hope you find your passion here as well and have the chance to enjoy all the opportunities UNCW has to offer!

Tara

Teal Guide Tara

Hi, my name is Tara. I am from Wallace, NC so I am not too far from home. I transferred this fall after receiving my Associate in Arts degree from James Sprunt Community College. I am a junior majoring in Elementary Education and I hope to pursue a Master’s degree as well. I chose to live on campus and I absolutely love it! I am a member of the Sigma Sigma Sigma (Tri Sigma) sorority and plan to pursue several other on campus activities. I believe that being a transfer student should not hinder you from enjoying all of the wonderful aspects of college. I am thrilled to be a Transfer to Teal tour guide to help others see that you can live your college dreams if you pursue them. I am an avid reader and dance is a very important part of my life. I also enjoy volunteering with various organizations including the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life and the Children’s Miracle Network. I am involved in both of these through my participation in the Miss North Carolina Organization. I am excited to share my story and help others see that being a transfer student is wonderful and they can achieve anything they desire. Proud to be a Seahawk!
