AustinAustin H.

Major: Business Administration

Anticipated graduation: 2020

Hometown: Advance, N.C.

Motto: Give me a place to stand, and I shall move the world.

Goals: To graduate from UNCG with a business administration degree with hopes to work my way up to the executive board of a company.

Why I chose UNCG: Because of the stature of the Bryan School [of Business & Economics] and the quaintness/beauty of the campus.

Best UNCG moment (so far): The first semester of my freshman year, the UNCG men's basketball team beat Mercer with a three-point buzzer-beater. The atmosphere was electric with Spartan pride!

Biggest UNCG surprise (so far): Although UNCG is considered an urban campus, there are many places I can go and relax away from the hustle and bustle of Greensboro, such as Peabody Park.

Favorite place on campus: Behind the EUC is a cool little fountain and courtyard that is never really crowded, which makes it a perfect place to just chill out and unwind!

On weekends: I like to chill with my friends and play on my PlayStation while also taking care of schoolwork for the upcoming week.

Favorite class: I really enjoyed "Principles of Microeconomics" (ECO 201) because it taught me how money is exchanged within an economy, which sounds boring but is actually really interesting.
Student involvement: UNCG chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

Favorite campus eats: The Grinder, a coffee-shop food truck that stops by campus from time to time — the coffee is great!

Favorite Greensboro activity: Greensboro has an amazing selection of restaurants, so I like to ride around with my friends and find new places to eat around the city.

If I could have a superpower, it would be: Definitely teleportation.

My advice for future Spartans: Do not be afraid to be yourself, honestly. UNCG is the most diverse school in the UNC system, and it definitely shows, even when you just take a walk around campus. We all have different backgrounds and we all have different and valuable things to contribute to our university.
