Soaking Up The Final Days at UNCW

Realizing I only have 13 days left of school, 17 till graduation and 24 till I leave the place I’ve called home for the past four years is something I’ve been trying to ignore. I’ve made the most of my time here at UNCW whether it was on campus, at my job or on the beach; each memory holds a special place in my heart. I will always cherish living in the small town of Wrightsville Beach for the past two years. I have taken for granted that I live only across the street from the beach with some of the most wonderful girls I call my best friends, and only have 24 days left of this paradise.


Having this time come to an end is scary and exciting at the same time. I’m excited to start my next chapter in life and become apart of the real world ( I’ll probably regret saying this later). The only thing holding me back from being excited is that I have to leave all of friends after graduation. Living with six girls this past year and having all of my friends live on the same street has really spoiled me. Being able to walk down the street or even just down the hall to find someone to go grab Tower7 margaritas on a Thursday or to walk the loop is something I take for granted. These girls have helped me grow in my four years here at UNCW and I know that their friendships will last a lifetime and for that I’m thankful!


Graduation brings mixed emotions of sadness and happiness since these four  years have flown by, it seems like yesterday I was walking the halls of Galloway. Through all the summer school classes, studying abroad and the many semesters spent in Leutze I would not change any of it for the memories I got from the professors, group objects and seeing the world. I want to thank the Communication Department for giving me the chances to allow myself to grow and learn and become the best version of myself. Also a big thank you to my parents for letting me go on this crazy adventure and supporting me the entire way! I will always be a Seahawk at heart and can’t wait to come back to visit!! Cheers to all the future Seahawks I hope you have the time of your life like I did! #FeelMyTeal #WingsUpForever

  1. I definitely agree with you on a lot of what you said. When I graduate, I am excited to be a part of the real world with a job and a home of my own. The thought also terrifies me, which is why I decided not to graduate early when I could have. Thinking about the end of my college career scares me because all of my friends are dispersing and going to different places, but I agree that the friendships made at school here are lasting. The future is too exciting an unknown to be scared about. Good luck to you!

  2. Wow, I could not agree more with where you are coming from. I will be taking a fifth year senior next year, however I have also had the opportunity to live on Wrightsville Beach this past year as well as study abroad in Spain last summer. I am so happy for all of you graduating and I am also looking forward to the real world while being scared of leaving what I call home now after all of these years.
