Michel's Video

Student-athletes at Coastal Carolina are recruited to have an impact both in the classroom and on the playing field. However, the return that CCU has received from Michel Enanga has far surpassed expectations on both counts.

From the African country of Cameroon, Michel decided to attend Coastal Carolina not just because of the basketball program but also because of the location and campus facilities. A member of the men’s basketball team during its arguably most successful stretch in program history, Michel helped the Chants reach back-to-back NCAA tournaments. Throughout his entire eligibility, Michel used his personal determination and the guidance of the coaching staff to improve as a player. It is his hope that after he wraps up his graduate degree this academic year, he will be in a position to start a professional basketball career overseas.

But if the competitive world of pro basketball doesn’t work out for Michel, he has other career options to fall back on. While Michel works on his master’s degree in business administration, he is also serving as a math tutor. His talent for helping others understand difficult mathematical concepts stretches from fellow students to faculty and staff members. A tutor for four years, the position helped him connect with others when he was first hired.

“If you can’t communicate with words, you can communicate with numbers,” Michel explains about how math helped ease any language barrier.

If you talk to Michel today, you will chat with a man who speaks gently yet clearly. Impressed by Coastal’s diversity and growth, he has an obvious appreciation for where he has spent the past six years. The appreciation is matched by how the campus feels about Michel. He is loved and respected by many, a magnet for admiring students and faculty alike.

Describing himself as “competitive,” Michel will work hard to reach his dreams once he leaves Coastal. Whether he finds himself on a basketball court, in a boardroom, or inside a school teaching math, we know he will be successful.

Do you work anywhere currently (either on or off campus)?: I am a grad assistant for the Math Learning Center. I have worked there for the past four years.

Plans after graduation?:  My goal is to achieve my first dream which is to play professional basketball. If that does not work, I have my diplomas to fall back on to help me get an interesting job.
