Brittany and Brandon

My name is Brittanie Clair, and I am a third-year student at Wilmington College. I am majoring in Education Studies with a minor in Psychology and intend to get a licensure in Early Childhood Education. My time at WC has been phenomenal! Upon stepping foot onto campus during Summer Orientation, I fell completely in love with not only the beauty of the campus, but the beauty of the people here. I never imagined I would find a college where I truly felt I belonged. Immediately, I felt as if I had found my second home. I started involving myself in organizations and going to events – this is when I started gaining my footing on campus. During my three years here, I have been a part of The Service Leader Executive Board (SLEB), Black Student Initiative (BSI), acted as a mentor in the Connections program, served as an Orientation Welcome Leader (OWL) during Orientation, served as Vice President of Public Relations for Student Government Association (SGA) , and participated in Ladies in PowerNational Society of Leadership & Success (NSLS), Resident Student Association (RSA), served as a Resident Assistant (RA), and participated in Survivor Advocacy, Fellowship and Education (S.A.F.E.). If it wasn’t for the people that have been by my side from day one, I am not so sure I would be here, but the connections I have, the relationships I have formed, and the experiences I have had here I will carry in my heart forever. I hope that one day the people here realize all they have done for me and all that they mean to me. #WeAreDubC

SavannahMy name is Savannah Manson and I’m a junior at Wilmington College, studying Biology – Health Science.

I have been involved with so much on campus, such as Black Student Initiative (BSI) as Secretary, American Medical Student Association (AMSA), WC Pride, served as an Orientation Welcome Leader  (OWL), worked in the Office of Admission as a Student Ambassador, as well as the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and so much more. Being here at Wilmington has helped me create so many connections for the real world as well as long-lasting friendships. #WeAreDubC

Alyssa Storer

Hi! My name is Alyssa Storer, and I’m a freshman majoring in Chemistry and Biology with a concentration in Health Sciences. During my first year on campus, I’ve gotten involved with the Honors Program, National Society of Leadership and Success, WC Pride, Ladies in Power, and STEM Society. When I visited campus during my junior year of high school, I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere and support that’s shown on campus. I can’t wait for what the next three years at Wilmington College will bring! #WeAreDubC

KianaHello everyone! My name is Kiana Chumley and I’m a first year student at Wilmington College studying Biology and Chemistry with a focus in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Pre-Law. After reading other stories from the #WeAreDubC initiative, I feel like it’s important for me to mention that I wasn’t set on WC after my first visit. To be honest, I wasn’t set on any college or university after my first visit! Deciding where to go to college is arguably one of the most important decisions in your adult life, and I felt like I needed time to think about every possible option before committing to one school. However, after countless conversations with my Admissions counselors and other faculty members at WC, I knew this was the place for me. Throughout the entire process, I felt like I was being guided in the right direction while also being allowed to forge my own path.
The opportunities on this campus are endless. As a first year student, I have competed on the Mock Trial team, been a member of Veterinarians of Tomorrow and the Honors Program while also holding a job as a Student Ambassador. I’ve been able to meet countless friends and form connections that will last a lifetime. When I walk to class everyday, I know I’m going to sit in a class where my professors care about my well-being and actually want to see me succeed. Wilmington College has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone in a way I never thought was imaginable, and the personal and academic growth I’ve experience in my short time here has surpassed my expectations. #WeAreDubC

Shania PetersHello! My name is Shania. I am a first-year student at Wilmington College. I decided to come to Wilmington so I didn’t have to move away from home. When I visited campus during my senior year of high school I knew Wilmington was were I would further my career. In my first year here, I have been inducted to the National Society of Leadership and Success and I am also in the Connections program. I cannot wait to see where Wilmington College takes me in the future and I am glad that I chose WC. #WeAreDubC

Wil OverholtI’m Wil Overholt, a senior Athletic Training major graduating in May! My four years at Wilmington College have allowed me to create friendships and connections that I believe will last me a lifetime. My time in the Athletic Training program has helped me network and set the foundation for my future in the job market. Some of my best memories from this year have been working with the Men’s Basketball team on campus. I’ve been fortunate to have found a home within the organizations that I’ve been working with in the past four years, including WeCare/SAFE, WC Greek Life Executive Board, the Honors Program, a term on Student Government Association, and my fraternity Lambda Chi Alpha. I will always remember my time with my best friends since day one in Austin Pickett, 3rd floor. I’ve been extremely thankful for the memories and stories that I will hold with me forever as I move on from Wilmington College. #WeAreDubC

Carly FitzHi everyone! My name is Carly Fitz, I’m a senior majoring in Agricultural Communications and Political Science. During my time on campus not only have I made life long friends, I’ve also had the opportunity to get really involved. Some of the organizations I’ve had the privilege of being in are Gamma Beta Eta Lil Sis Sorority (formerly Delta Theta Sigma), Collegiate Farm Bureau, Orientation Welcome Leader (OWL), Aggies and hosted my own radio show, Jive@5, on The Quake! I was very active in the lobby trip opportunities on campus for Fall Ag Lobby and Spring Lobby Weekend with FCNL, a Washington D.C. Quaker lobby organization, which led me to my future career. After graduation I plan to advocate for agriculture as a lobbyist in Washington D.C.

Allyson

Hello! My name is Ally Cupps. I am a first-year student at Wilmington double majoring in AgBusiness and Spanish. I chose Wilmington College hoping for a personal, hands-on experience, and I was not disappointed. Before completing my first full year on campus I hold three jobs on campus, have made many new friends and connections, have been on our academic farm each week and sat in a real classroom with real people. WC allows me to make more tight knit connections with peers, professors, and other faculty. Being a Student Ambassador, I have many opportunities to talk with prospective students and share why I love Wilmington College. Our culture at Wilmington is one of respect, kindness, and support. #WeAreDubC
