Major: Public Health
The best testimonial for a college is when a student takes a campus position because she wants to show others why she loves it so much. Such is the case for Coastal Carolina student Hanah Stoudt. Recently hired as a 2017-18 orientation leader, Hanah accepted the demanding position because she wants to share with others why CCU is a special place. Needless to say, incoming students will find a smiling face this summer in Hanah.
No, we literally mean a “smiling face.” Hanah believes that a smile can make all the difference, going as far as to change someone’s day. Adding that a warm grin can “spread positivity,” Hanah will be doing her part to make sure our newest students feel at home.
A public health major, Hanah doesn’t want to stop learning about her field of study upon graduation. She has expressed her desire to earn a graduate degree in public health as well. Motivated to help people live an overall healthy lifestyle, her education path couldn’t be more right on. We encourage Hanah to keep smiling and thank her for taking on the responsibility of an orientation leader.
