Hey y’all! My name is Jaselyn Lillibridge and I am from a small town in Central Pennsylvania. Coming to Coastal wasn’t actually my plan. I had options and scholarships from Penn State to Hawaii Pacific University, but, somehow, I ended up at Coastal Carolina––and for that I am so thankful. I believe your experience in college is all about what you make it, and Coastal has given me all the tools I have needed to design a life I love. Working as a Teal Trailblazer has given me so much Coastal spirit and doing volunteer work at local humane societies as well as working with A Moment of Magic has filled my heart so much. I am planning on studying abroad in the near future as well. In just my sophomore year I have made some of the best memories and found the greatest friends. Coastal has truly given me my home away from home and provided me with a place to thrive and grow into the best version of myself.
