Done at the Dub


It is hard to believe that the semester is actually coming to an end and my undergraduate academic chapter is over. It feels like it took forever to get up to this semester and now that it was here it’s over in the blink of an eye.

My time at UNCW has been one of my greatest accomplishments to date. I have truly grown as a student and as an individual in and outside of the classroom. Academically, I have never felt more confident in the time and work I have put into all of my assignments. Personally, I have never felt closer to knowing the faculty here in the Communication Studies department. I was terrified coming to a university as a nontraditional student, I felt that I wasn’t as quipped as my peers. The COM department was welcoming and exciting. I remember feeling so at peace knowing that I had found a home here.

I have learned so much about skills and passions I never knew I had. I have found a true desire to want to learn more and enhance my skills in knowing more about Integrated Marketing Communication. While my last semester here has been overwhelming it has also been so rewarding. I have developed graphic skills and enhanced my writing skills throughly.

More than anything I truly want to thank the Communication Department in general. They are so passionate about each of their students are truly pushing us and making us prepared for our next steps in life. It is such an incredible feeling when you find a passion and are looking forward to the future and what it holds for you.


Thank you UNCW for everything that you have done for me and more. I am so excited to be apart of the Alumni here. Wilmington and UNCW will forever be my first home.


Congrats to the 2019 graduates, we did it!
