Hello wonderful and beautiful readers! My name is Cameron and I am a senior here at the greatest university in the world studying Communication with a concentration in Public Relations. I say that I am a senior because this is my fourth year here at NC State, but fortunately it will not be my last seeing that I will be partaking in half a victory lap (hopefully) and graduating in December of 2015. I could not be more ecstatic to be interning for the Undergraduate Admissions office here at State, and I hope that ya’ll enjoy reading my blog about my passion for this university and my abundant adventures around NC State as a senior.
Becoming a student at NC State had been a goal of mine since I was born. Every time I would have to complete assignments as a kid about what I wanted to be when I grew up I would respond by jumping up and saying: “a Wolfpacker!” I can confidently tell you that the best moment of my life so far was when I received the news that I had been accepted to State, and realized that all my dreams were coming true. Most of my family attended NC State and they raised me as a die-hard Wolfpack fan, and I have grown in my insane obsession with this university even more since I began my undergraduate path in 2011.
Since enrollment in August of 2011 I have attended every home football game, and plenty of away games, as well as all the basketball and baseball games I can make it to. I have been very involved at all of the games-waking up before the sun rose to get in line, ensuring a seat in the front row so my friends and I could display our painted chests and roaring excitement for the team that we love most. I have enjoyed every moment at NC State as I had always hoped I would, and now I am fulfilling another one of my dreams by working for the University through this awesome internship with Undergraduate Admissions.
Outside of my passion for State, I am a beach bum from Wilmington, NC and a summer staff member at a Methodist sailing camp known as Camp Don Lee. I love the water and sailing and surfing, and just being outdoors whenever possible camping on the beaches of the outer banks and hanging out on coastal Wilmington islands with my friends. I love my hometown, but I also love the city life of Raleigh. I am a religious concert-goer, and one of Raleigh’s specialties is being the host city of some of the best concerts that North Carolina has to offer. I will be making plenty of posts this year about the outrageously fun times that will be had in Raleigh as well as the limitless opportunities that NC State presents.
I hope everyone enjoys reading my blog as much as I will enjoy writing it, and learns to love NC State just as much as I do. Don’t forget to follow me on twitter (@wpn_Cameron) to stay more up to date with NC State news and the wonders of senior life! GO PACK!
