HEY SEAHAWKS! Time is running out to apply to the SGA Executive Cabinet, click the link in our bio to learn more. If you still are wondering how rewarding this experience will be, then take a look at why Mannie enjoyed serving on the board! “Being on SGA exec was the most meticulous yet fulfilling experience I ever undertook during my undergraduate experience. As Director of Diversity and Inclusion, I was able to serve as an advocate for diverse students in many facets. Being able to advocate for the needs of our diverse students, and similarly, provide year-round programming, has allowed me to better understand our university and our constituents needs. Despite the setbacks we experienced all year, our exec board always strived to be "fun and productive," just as we'd intended when we commenced last fall. This experience is unmatched and it would be a privilege, as it was it me, to be able to serve the student body in this respect!"

Thank you, Dr. Marilyn Sheerer for your dedication to the position as Provost. You have shown our faculty and staff true leadership and our students the excitement that exist in education. We are wishing you the best in your new teaching position at Watson College of Education!

Provost Marilyn Sheerer has been a vibrant and spirited part of the UNCW tapestry for five years now. As she prepares to transition from her current role to a faculty role in the UNCW Watson College of Education, we asked her to look back at her time in teal so far, and what she's looking forward to in the next chapter. Thank you, Provost Sheerer, for your dedication to our university, faculty, staff and students; your commitment to our community as a whole; and your invaluable voice of experience and integrity for us all!

MEET "FLAT SAMMY"!

Social distancing? Not fun, but necessary. An homage to the beloved children’s character “Flat Stanley” – one that gives us a break from the daily grind AND gives our fellow Seahawks something to enjoy amidst all the serious stuff on their social media feeds? A lot of fun, and, we’ll say it, maybe even necessary!

Introducing…Flat Sammy! Download and print him, color him in, and introduce him into your surroundings! Leaving home, in a responsible (masked, safe) way? Bring Flat Sammy along. Whipping up some survival snacks? Let Flat Sammy join you in the kitchen! Zooming around the world of online education? Flat Sammy would love to sit in. (Just don’t count on him to take good notes…holding a pen with those giant wings isn’t easy.)

Now take and post a picture of how Flat Sammy is keeping you company, include the hashtag #FlatSammy, and tag UNCW and UNCW Student Government Association

Nicholas Pianovich, former Student Body President, will tell you the best ideas often come to mind on a long walk around. Just as he is here, walking through campus with Chancellor Sartarelli, dreaming of the next big idea. So how about you take a socially distant walk around your neighborhood and think of the next big idea you have for SGA and UNCW. While you are at it, you should share it with us in the form of an SGA Executive Application. You still have until April 27th at 5 pm to submit your application to be apart of the 2020-2021 Executive Cabinet. Follow the link in our bio to our homepage and click on "Get Involved."

Seahawks, the winds changed, and you responded most appropriately, by adjusting your wings and shaking out those feathers so you would fly straight through the adversity. Take a look below to read some of the stories of our Seahawks being diligent students, and hard-working faculty and staff members. Curious about how other Seahawks are staying motivated? Read about other's tips and tricks for an at-home classroom or office! Are you feeling a little down, or in need of some "pawlleagues"? They have that for you too! Our Seahawks never cease to amaze us!

We put out the call and you answered in a Sammy-sized way - and now here's the teal-reveal of HAWK ON!, a collection of images, anecdotes and words of Wings-Up wisdom that have helped us all Hawk On over the past month!

Good Morning Seahawks! During these times of uncertainty as the nation and the world watches closely to how the Coronavirus situation will develop, we must ensure we as Seahawks are doing our part. SGA urges you to visit the link in our bio to get the most up to date information, continue to wash your hands and practice social distancing techiques. As unsettling as the situation is, take note from the trees that cover our campus, the Long Leaf Pines. Just as the pines stand tall, outstretching their branches towards the sun, you shall also stand tall and confidently in your abilities to traverse this unfamiliar situation. Just as the pines sway back and forth with the wind, you also should remain flexible during the storms of life. Most importantly, though, as the pine trees grow into a forest that covers the land, us Seahawks are a network of life long learners, a family who all have given a piece of themselves to better their lives at UNCW. So take comfort in knowing you do not stand alone during this time, there is a global family of Seahawks here to support you. SGA stands ready to assist you in any way possible, and we are always a simple message away. Together we will overcome this because we are One Seahawk, Stronger Together (with 6 feet of distance). @ UNCW

Please refer to the post below for the latest update.

Seahawks and Seahawk supporters: We have just sent a message via campus email that you can see via the link below, but the gist of it was this: While we are awaiting UNC System guidance re. the impact of Gov. Cooper's Executive Order, students remain able to return to residence halls as of 10 a.m. tomorrow. We have no reason to believe that will change, but we will email students by 7 a.m. tomorrow, just to confirm! *However,* when considering when to return, students should remember that campus services are operating under reduced hours during the extended spring break, and the Rec Center is closed until further notice. Many of you are asking Qs about the impact on various campus services - remember our guidance to check individual campus websites, or carefully reread previous updates. If you do not see a topic addressed within these updates, it means there is not yet any additional information and we can't provide any answers to questions posted/sent here. Thanks for continuing to hang in there with us, Seahawks.

The latest update shared by OUR via campus wide email.

Seahawks and Seahawk supporters: This message was just shared via campus email. We will have more updates later today or this evening, but we want to get you everything we can confirm, in real time as it's confirmed. Thank you for understanding that this is a slow-moving and complicated process. We will keep doing the best we can to keep you informed!

_____________________________________________________________

Dear Campus Community:

We promised we’d share all the information we can, as soon as we can, so we are writing to you this morning with this important update: An official who worked at the UNCW-Drexel MBB game on March 7 has tested positive for COVID-19. In an abundance of caution and following CDC guidelines, 12 student-athletes and 13 staff members are now self-quarantining off campus. The recommended 14-day window for self-quarantining will expire on March 21. We are hoping our aggressive response to this potential exposure will serve as a model to our community. In addition, the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune has confirmed a dependent patient has tested presumptive-positive for COVID-19. We have no reason to believe any UNCW personnel or students have come in contact with this dependent patient, but we will alert the community immediately if there is a confirmed case of coronavirus among the UNCW population.

We will continue to share updates as they become available. Thank you for your ongoing patience.

What makes UNCW special?

Amongst all the answers possible, for Bill Kawczynski, Director of Military Affairs at UNCW, that answer is easy. Our Veterans. UNCW is home to thousands of students who have served our nation and now continue to grow at UNCW through their education. Our Military Affairs is one of national recognition, and our univeristy placed 11th on the list of Best Colleges for Veterans in the South. A week ago, Director Kawczynski spoke to ASG at UNCW about his role and the role of ASG in supporting our veterans. Our service members fight a hard battle within their roles of active duty military, and yet some of the hardest battles remain when they return home. As you can imagine, the transition from life on the battlefield to civilian life is not easy for many. 22. That is the number of veterans in the US who die from suicide each day. Director Kawczynski challenged the members of all the universities represented at ASG, to take back to their schools a task. To support their veterans, and to promote an upcoming event that will spark conversation about preventing suicide among our veteran communities. On March 23rd at 6:30 pm in Trask Coliseum, the event "A Conversation on Veteran Suicide Prevention" will take place. This event will not only reach the students here at UNCW, but through a live stream, the event will be broadcast to 1,500 universities across the nation. We hope you join Military Affairs on March 23rd during this conversation, and to continue to support one another. UNCW is family, and together we lift one another so they may reach their goals. @ University of North Carolina at Wilmington

On Tuesday, the UNCW Faculty Senate overwhelmingly voted to support the student body in asking the university to divest from fossil-fuel industries in our endowment, as proposed by the Student Government Association. This resolution follows behind several similar initiatives in academic, private, and public institutions. In the academic realm, universities ranging from Harvard to UNC Asheville have completed similar actions, and now UNCW has joined the ranks. SGA is so proud of the efforts of our 72nd session, with the support of UNCW 350 in the divestment efforts. SGA is committed to ensuring a more sustainable future for generations to come. The full resolution can be found on our website, and we will continue to update the student body about our efforts to achieve a more sustainable campus. @ UNCW

Wellness Wednesday – Occupational

The Occupational dimension of wellness involves preparing and making use of your skills, gifts, and talents in order to gain purpose and happiness in your life. The development of occupational satisfaction is related to your attitude about your work and that is where the UNCW Career Center can help! The mission of the UNCW Career Center is to be a comprehensive career counseling and resource center dedicated to empowering students and alumni as active participants in their own career development. The Career Center offers a multitude of resources to ensure the success of students in their career. Did you know that even after you graduate from UNCW, you can use the services that the career center offers? The career center sponsors a career and internship fair at least once a semester where you can get professional headshots taken and give your resumes to employers. Check out the link in our bio to find more information on the resources and how to make use of them!

Planting for the Future

Today SGA, ACE, the Chancellors Sustainability Committee, and Natural Areas Stewardship Committee joined faculty, staff, and students in replanting hundreds of trees lost from hurricane Florence. One day these tiny trees will be standing tall and proud at the front of campus to welcome baby Seahawks into the nest and alumni home! There is no better way to give back during homecoming, than working for the success of future seahawks! Thank you to all who participated in keeping our campus naturally beautiful!

Nicholas “Nick” Pianovich- Student Body President
During his four years at UNCW, Nick Pianovich has given back through Student Govenrment, Alpha Sigma Phi, as a Resident Assistant, and Cameron Executive Network. Nick is a senior from New Orleans, LA, majoring in Business Administration with a Human Resources concentration and a minor in Leadership.
Nick has loved every second of being a Seahawk and has used his time to give back not only to the UNCW community, but also to the Wilmington Community. He helped to organize Cookin for Kiddos to help raise money for Winter Park Elementary School after Hurricane Florence and has helped to ensure the program continues. Nick values everything he’s gained at UNCW including the knowledge gained in the classroom, connections with mentors, making life-long friends, and the numerous leadership opportunities he’s had. Nick loves serving the students of UNCW and advocating on their behalf, all while wearing his trademark smile.
SGA is beyond proud of Nick for representing our organization, and university so well. What better individual then President Nicholas Pianovich to be a part of UNCW's Homecoming Court 2020. Voting for homecoming court is still open, and the link can be found in our bio!
We love and appreciate you, Nick! PC: OUR / Jeff Janowski & River Bondurant @ UNCW
