Name: Samantha Fallon
Hometown: High Bridge, N.J.
Year in School: Junior
Samantha Fallon wanted to experience life outside of her small hometown. While in high school, she had the opportunity to visit her cousin at Coastal Carolina University. Sam was drawn to the special environment on campus and developed a love for the state of South Carolina in general. When the time came to make a college decision, there wasn’t a better choice to test life outside of New Jersey than Coastal Carolina. Sam became a Chanticleer.
Now a junior at Coastal, Sam is proud to be part of the CCU community. She works for the CCU Food Crew on campus and she also finds time to work at a local restaurant as well. A new member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, she has a drive to develop into a person who is ready to lead and serve. But at the core of Sam’s experience at Coastal is her group of friends. Incredibly loyal to the people she interacts with every day, she has made lasting memories with them over the past three years.
Sam wants to use her sociology degree to become a drug counselor of some sort. No doubt that her outgoing and warm personality would help her make an impression on the people she would be called on to help. Saying she is “excited to continue experiencing life here at Coastal” we know Sam will make the most out of her final three semesters on campus.
