Here is a campus tour story for you…
When Kevellin Sanders took his tour of Coastal Carolina University, he was impressed. No, not just impressed; really impressed. In fact, Kevellin liked what he saw so much that he committed to Coastal and paid all his fees that day. As you can guess, he came to #TEALnation full of energy.
Kevellin molded himself into a well-known and well-respected leader at CCU. Calling his leadership style “innovative,” he has done whatever possible to position himself for a future career in student affairs. After he graduates in May, Kevellin plans to take the next step toward his dream by enrolling in the student affairs graduate program at Clemson.
Until then, he plans to soak up the family atmosphere he enjoys so much at Coastal, one that he helped foster himself. When he started classes as a freshman, Kevellin told us he wondered whether he would make a mark on campus by the time he graduated.
The answer to that thought is a resounding YES.
