Federal work-study is a type of financial aid granted to qualifying college students that allows them to work part-time during the semester. Many departments at the University of North Carolina love opening work-study positions because it allows students the opportunity to gain relevant experience and they are flexible with individual course schedules. Work-study positions are especially valuable for eligible positions off UNCW’s campus as many nonprofit organizations can fulfill needs without dipping into their personal budgets since work-study wages are paid out by the government.

Grateful for Business Community Connections

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Feb 22, 2019 10:23:00 AM

By Robert Burrus, Dean of the Cameron School of Business (this post originally appeared on WilmingtonBiz.com on February 19, 2019).

The fall of 2018 was both devastating and challenging for the city of Wilmington and the surrounding areas. However, all sectors of the Cape Fear community proved resilient in getting our economy back up and running.  As well, our students, faculty and staff returned to campus and began to piece together the remainder of a semester marked by the loss of almost a month of class days and significant campus damage. I want to commend all of you in our community for your great ability to work together!

Featured Alumna: Corinne Walker, International MBA '15

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Feb 15, 2019 11:15:00 AM

It’s hard to imagine where you might end up after college because the constant classes and homework often make us feel like we’ll be here forever. Though you might not see it now, everything you’re doing in college at this moment is shaping you as a professional in the future. International MBA grad, Corinne Walker, is a great example of this, and we interviewed her to gain some insight on her college and career journey. Walker has a B.S. in marketing and her IMBA concentration was also in marketing. She spent time studying in Valencia, Spain, and now works as a marketing professional at a company called Geo Owl.

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Feb 8, 2019 11:15:00 AM

By Mel Beasley, CSB Marketing Assistant

As we creep into the second month of the year, it’s time to stop procrastinating those scholarship applications. Many scholarship opportunities will close in March for the 2019 fall semester, so it’s a good time to think about those essays. It can be challenging to sit down and reflect on our personal lives as many essay prompts ask students to explore particular events or moments in their lives, but there is a formulaic method to these kinds of essays. One thing that can help you stay focused in your writing is developing a strong, focused thesis for your narrative.

The 3 Most Common Essay Mistakes that Will KILL Your Grade

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Jan 4, 2019 12:27:00 PM

By Mel Beasley, CSB Marketing Assistant

It’s happened to the best of us. We convinced ourselves that starting our essay three weeks ahead of deadline and combing through it five times before submitting it would land us that A+. To the contrary, you earn a high C and are ready to crack open a box of bonbons and watch Friends reruns before the depression sets in. What on earth did you do wrong? Probably one of these three most common essay mistakes.

How the Campus Writing Center Can Help You Ace Your Class Essay

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Dec 28, 2018 12:32:00 PM


By Mel Beasley, CSB Marketing Assistant

No matter how talented you are at writing, there is no one who can write the perfect draft. Now that we have that out of the way, I wanted to let you know how to move one step closer to transforming your rough draft into a polished A+ essay by using a completely free campus service: The UNCW campus writing center located in DePaolo Hall. Students can schedule one-one-one appointments with a writing tutor or drop in the writing lab to get help with formatting issues or revision. As a writing tutor myself, I’ve literally seen it all come through the door from misplaced modifiers, run-on sentences, disorganization, passive voice, and everything else under the sun. Students often make the same three to four mistakes over and over which cause them to remain stagnant in their writing. Here are some ways the writing center can help you improve your essay writing.
