            UNCW is now that midsize school that offers you the most for your money in education. Although it seemed small wnen I was there, it allowed for the greatest opportunity for me to learn from some of the top-ranked professors In the State. The Cameron Scool of Business gave me the knowledge that was required to compete in a challenging job marketplace so that I truly provided value to my employer. After graduating in Dec. 1992 with B.S. in Marketing, I was able to learn my Industry, devise a marketing plan, develop my database of contacts and start my own business in just 15 years. UNCW provided the foundation and forged so many lasting friendships which continue to support my personal and professional life. It was there that I grew to develop the social skills, business drive and focus that's helped me to have success in every aspect of my life. Not to forget that you are near some of the coolest beaches on the East Coast! Ultimately, UNCW rocks!
