Tiffany Kim

Hey guys! My name is Tiffany Kim and I’m a senior here at Wilmington College, majoring in Sport Management. During my 4 years here on campus, I’ve involved myself in a lot — but currently I am a member of the Alpha Phi Kappa sorority. I chose to come to Wilmington, because it wasn’t too far from home, and I knew a lot of people here. While being here I’ve made some of my closest friends who have left a huge impact on my life, and this place has really become a second home to me. I’m graduating in a couple months, but Wilmington will always be a part of my life as I move onto my next chapter.
