This is the moment.

A new academic year stretches before you, ripe with opportunity.

Perhaps you’ll find your calling in the lab, partnering with faculty to make new discoveries. Maybe your home is the studio or the stage, where you can unleash your creativity.

Your kingdom may be the court, joining with teammates for a shared victory. Or the library, where you’ll delve into timeless texts, finding inspiration to solve today’s problems. Or in the community, learning from others as you give of yourself in service.

Whatever it is that drives you, at UNCG, you’ll find the support to propel you to your goal.

You are joining an unbroken band of UNCG spirit and service that stretches back 123 years and reaches toward the future. Thousands of successful alumni are cheering you on, familiar with the path you’re about to travel. They understand that momentary challenges lead to ultimate success.

It’s your time to shine. To Do something bigger altogether.

You don’t have to do it alone. You’ve found a new home, a supportive environment, complete with faculty and staff who will push you to discover the best you. You will be challenged, supported and engaged along the way.

The possibilities are limitless, and so is your potential. With the will of the warrior, you can make it happen.

This is your moment.

Welcome, Spartans.
