Location & Occupation: Currently living in Raleigh and work at Windstream Hosted Solutions as a Client Implementation Manager;

Why Wesleyan made a difference to you: NC Wesleyan made a difference in my life by allowing me to attain my bachelor's degree in an accelerated program. The Religion electives were my favorite courses. They provided insight to how many religions and cultural beliefs affect business practices.  

Why you choose to stay connected: I have stayed in touch with North Carolina Wesleyan in order to network, share my educational experience with others, and to keep abreast of North Carolina Wesleyan's future educational offerings. I am proud to be an alum of NCWC.

NC Wesleyan has some excellent instructors and they challenge you without being intimidating;  

Why you choose to stay connected: I have chosen to stay in touch with NC Wesleyan because of many fond memories of my time attending the school and because the people associated with this college are just first class in every respect.
