“As a life-long resident of Robeson County, the campus of UNC Pembroke has always felt like home to me. As a student, I gained a new appreciation for this institution and was able to get a firsthand experience of the abundance of opportunities UNC Pembroke has to offer. Your journey towards higher education is full of varying factors. It is important to know what you need from a university and find the right university to fulfill those needs. For me, it was the opportunity for a personalized education that would provide opportunities for growth both inside and outside of the classroom. During my time at UNC Pembroke, I learned valuable life lessons, gained necessary experience that would prepare me for life after graduation, and networked with diverse populations. UNC Pembroke changed my life through education and it can change yours too!”
