Something to talk about

It's just you, a camera and a simple message — UNCG is a place where people Do something bigger altogether.

The UNCG YouTube channel already has a series of videos from students, faculty and staff who talk about what UNCG has meant to them. Here's a sample of what they're saying:

Two and a half years ago I was a patient here at Duke Hospital and because of UNCG I am now able to give back and take care of others as a nurse. - Matthew Williamson

It's been a great, great environment for me to blossom and use my craft the way I want to. - Katy Biser

I came here for one purpose and then found my real purpose. - Kristen Morgan

I love being downtown. It brings the university and the community that much closer together. - Dr. Bob Wineburg, professor of social work

What I love about UNCG is the opportunities it opens up and the people that you meet. I never knew we would become such close friends…. We end up becoming like a family - Joonhyuk Yim

I just enjoy coming to work. I meet a lot of new people. I get a lot of energy from the young people that are here and I love being around that energy. - Paul Daniel

Each person who has been in contact with UNCG has their own story. A story about how a professor changed them. A story about the friendships formed on campus that last to this day. A story about how UNCG prepared them to go on to do things beyond their wildest imagination.

Share your story. We'd love to hear about it. Pick up your phone or a video camera and make a short video. It doesn't have to be more than a few seconds. Just tell everyone how UNCG was meaningful to you or how the people here challenged you to Do something bigger altogether.
