Name: Tiffany Johnson
Hometown: Beaufort, S.C.
Year in School: Senior
Tiffany Johnson has every reason to feel good about herself right now. She started her senior year on Monday, she celebrated her birthday this week and she recently wrapped up a successful stint as an orientation leader.
Oh yeah, she was also chosen to lead off the 2017-18 #CCUfamily campaign.
Kicking off a major social media feature takes a special kind of student and Tiffany fits the bill. A founder of the Tau Psi Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi professional business fraternity, she is motivated and career-focused. She is also assertive. As the loss prevention lead at the area’s Old Navy store, Tiffany prevents and cracks down on theft, helping her to develop both her people-reading and confrontation skills. Ready to hit the corporate world with the accounting degree she will earn in May, she will use the next two semesters to absorb knowledge and learn lessons that will make her just a bit more complete come graduation.
However, there was a time when Tiffany thought she might not make it to a Coastal graduation. After her freshman year, she considered transferring somewhere else. Her appointment as a resident adviser changed all that. Surrounded by a terrific staff and overwhelmed with a sense of family, Tiffany never looked back. Needless to say, Coastal couldn’t be more pleased.
Enjoy your senior year, Tiffany!
Q&A with Tiffany
How did you hear about Coastal?: A teacher I had in high school would do a “College of the Day” feature where she put pictures of colleges on the board and we talked about them. I had never heard of Coastal Carolina University before the day in class when she featured it.
Why did you come to Coastal?: Downtown Conway is a lot like my hometown, so I immediately was attracted to it. I also loved the idea that Coastal was a medium sized school, so the professors would actually know who I am rather than just my name on a piece of paper.
Favorite professor: Sheila Mitchell
Favorite class: Accounting 336, Account Systems and Data Processes
Favorite aspect of Coastal?: The community, I feel like everyone at Coastal is one big family.
