Student Perspective

The start of a new adventure

The Department of Recreation & Wellness is happy to welcome Davis Preston, our new Outdoor Adventures Graduate Assistant. Davis joins us after completing his undergraduate degree at Eastern Kentucky University and is pursuing a Masters Degree in Community and Therapeutic Recreation. I had a chance to chat with Davis this morning and got to know him a bit better.

Native American Student Association Pow Wow

“It’s the first pow-wow held on the UNCG campus in 15 or 20 years,” said Raven Dial-Stanley, president of UNCG’s Native American Student Association, who organized the event. “It’s a traditional we’re hoping to revitalize.”

Intramural Indoor Soccer

Every college student knows that school can be stressful, with midterms, finals, working an outside job etc. A lot of students are able to release some tension, however, through the Recreation & Wellness Department’s intramural sports program, which lets students compete in a friendly and fun environment.
