Megan Yawn | 49er Graduate | Charlotte, NC / by Ushvani Jagdeo

What degree(s) are you earning? What do you plan on doing after graduation? 

I will be graduating with a Marketing degree and Psychology minor. I'll be staying in the Charlotte area and working, and hopefully going somewhere fun this summer for vacation!

What organizations were you involved in? 

I was a Freshman Class Council Representative, and served Housing and Residence Life for 4 years as Secretary of Sanford's Hall Council, Resident Advisor for two years, Summer RA, and Office Assistant. 

Favorite spot on campus and why? 

I have two favorite spots on campus - the hammocks near Robinson and the pond near Colvard at the front of campus. I have so many good memories at those places!

What has been your favorite memory at UNC Charlotte?

I have way too many favorite memories at UNCC! Two of my absolute favorites though are meeting my best friends - I met Ulrika at SOAR and Jenna was one of my residents my first year as an RA. We've all had so many good times since then and college would not have been the same without them!

Most valuable lesson learned during your college career?

The most valuable lesson I've learned during my college career is to enjoy every moment. One of my favorite quotes is "Of this be sure: you do not find the happy life, you make it." I've made so many wonderful memories at UNC Charlotte through all of the people I've met and the experiences I've had, by taking the time to live in the moment and create happiness.
