Nicole S.Laura M.

Major: Studio Art

Graduation Year: 2017

Hometown: Asheville, N.C.

My personal motto is: Why fit in when you were born to stand out?; Not all who wander are lost; Wit beyond measure is a man's greatest treasure.

My goals are: To graduate with a BFA in studio arts and go on to be a graphic designer so I can inspire others through my artwork.

I selected UNCG because: When I visited campus I felt at home. It was the place where I could truly be myself.

My best UNCG moment: Going to my first UNCG men's basketball game!

My biggest surprise at UNCG: How many opportunities you are given to get involved as a leader.

My favorite place on campus: Gatewood art building! It's like my second home, and the studios are beautiful with the giant windows looking out over campus and Greensboro.

On the weekends I: Attend university and community events with my friends and hang out in the studios working on my art.

My favorite class: Design. It's so much fun and it gets me excited for my future career.

I am involved in: The art learning community along with Ashby Residential College activities.

My favorite food on campus: Bojangles'!

Favorite thing to do in Greensboro: Go to First Friday (in downtown Greensboro) each month and experience the Greensboro art community.

If I could have a superpower, it would be: Mind reader

My one piece of advice for prospective students is: Don't let anything hold you back from being yourself and following your dreams! Everyone on campus is super nice and supportive and is here to help you achieve whatever you set your mind to.
