KorinKorin N.

Major: Consumer, Apparel, & Retail Studies (CARS)

Anticipated graduation: 2020

Hometown: Apex, N.C.

Motto: Nevertheless, she persisted.

Goals: Work as a fashion magazine editor in New York City, have a happy family, and make enough money to go Disney World whenever I want to.

Why I chose UNCG: It's like a hidden gem — as soon as you come on campus, you really see how special it is.

Best UNCG moment (so far): Going to the Southern Regional Orientation Workshop with UNCG orientation staff and being part of the Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies annual fashion show.

Biggest UNCG surprise (so far): How interested the professors actually are in our success and future, and how willing and excited they are to help us get there.

Favorite place on campus: Taylor Garden — the fountain area behind the EUC —  because it is pretty and peaceful and a good place to study or hang out.

On weekends: I eno in Foust Park and go on Cookout runs.

Favorite class: "Culture, Human Behavior, and Clothing" (CRS 221) because I loved the professor, and the class was a mixture of culture, fashion, and history, all of which I find really interesting.

Student involvement: Spartan Orientation Staff (SOS); THREADS, the CARS student group; Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society; Lloyd International Honors College; Cliffhangers, the UNCG rock-climbing club.

Favorite campus eats: Chick-fil-A from the EUC.

Favorite Greensboro activity: Going out to eat with friends.

If I could have a superpower, it would be: To fill things up — if your bank account is empty, you can fill it up. If you are out of food, you can fill up your plate. You would never be out of anything!

My advice for future Spartans: Get involved! College won't feel like home until you make it your home, so get involved in things you love to do!
