ShevonShevon S.

Major: Sociology (Criminology concentration)

Anticipated graduation: 2020

Hometown: Charlotte, N.C.

Motto: Wake. Pray. Slay.

Goals: To graduate with my bachelor's and master's degrees, make Dean's List, land an internship with a crime lab, become fluent in Spanish, and travel the world.

Why I chose UNCG: It has campus diversity, a major that interests me, many academic resources, a lot of school spirit, a variety of clubs and organizations, the campus is beautiful, and it's close to home!

Best UNCG moment (so far): Participating in the Akt Like a Nupe competition.

Biggest UNCG surprise (so far): Being selected as vice president for the Blue Dynasty Dance Team for the 2017-18 academic year.

Favorite place on campus: The fountain at Moran Commons! On sunny days, it is a really peaceful and pretty place to sit and do homework, or just relax and play music!

On weekends: I go out with my friends, stay in and watch movies, go to the gym, sleep, and do homework.

Favorite class: "Sociology of Deviant Behavior" (SOC 222) because it was the first class I took in my Criminology concentration, and the material was very interesting to learn about. I also loved the professor; we did a lot of in-class mini projects that were very fun!

Student involvement: Blue Dynasty Dance Team, UNCG chapter of the National Society for Collegiate Scholars, UNCG chapter of NAACP.

Favorite campus eats: Chick-fil-A and Sam's Oven & Grill (on Tate Street).

Favorite Greensboro activity: Going to Waffle House with my daddy and riding around downtown at night.

If I could have a superpower, it would be: The ability to fly.

My advice for future Spartans: Get in group chats with other prospective students. Most likely, you will find students in there who already go to UNCG. You can ask them questions about anything on campus (like I did) and they will give you advice. It also helps you make new friends and meet potential roommates!
