About the UNCW Alumni Association

Our Mission

The UNCW Alumni Association is the lead supporter in the university's strategic vision. Our purpose is to connect and involve alumni, students and friends in the promotion and advancement of the university.

The association serves all Seahawks, requiring no fee to receive benefits or participate in chapters. We engage alumni with one another, and in the life of the university and its students, through regional, affinity, reunion, student and career-based programs. We encourage alumni to get informed of opportunities to connect; be involved as event attendees, volunteers, mentors, employers and ambassadors; and invest in UNCW by giving back philanthropically.

Wise Alumni House

Wise Alumni House1713 Market Street, Wilmington, NC 28403

The Wise Alumni House is one of the four cornerstones of Wilmington's historic mansion district. Renowned architect Burett H. Stevens designed the house for Delgado Cotton Mills President Edwin Cameron Holt. The 7,484 square foot home was completed in 1909 and cost $11,000 to build. In 1916, it was sold to heiress and philanthropist Jessie Kenan Wise. Miss Jessie lived there until her death at age 98 in 1968. The home was then deeded to UNC Wilmington to further the school’s charitable and education programs.

Today, the Wise Alumni House remains a beautiful, historic landmark, symbolizing the unity between the past, present and future of UNCW and the Wilmington community. The Alumni Association office is located in the house, and it serves as the venue for several alumni events throughout the year.

Alumni are able to reserve the Wise Alumni House for events for themselves and their children. For details, please contact Conferences Services at (910) 962.7119 or clconferences@uncw.edu.

Join the Board

Interested in serving on the Alumni Association Board of Directors? Submit an application at least 14 days prior to the fourth quarter meeting to be considered for membership in the following year.

Board Application

UNCW Legacy

UNCW Legacy

A UNCW Legacy is a student with a parent, grandparent or sibling who has also attended UNCW.

Legacy Admissions

On the UNCW application for admission, prospective students can indicate that they have a parent, grandparent or sibling who attended or is currently attending UNCW. Students will not be admitted solely on their legacy connection, however, the Office of Admissions does consider this as a tipping factor during the application review.

Legacy Scholarships

Two Alumni Legacy Scholarships are awarded annually to incoming or currently enrolled, undergraduate legacy students to recognize and honor those making UNCW a family tradition. Recipients are selected by the Awards & Scholarship Selection Committee of the association's Board of Directors and funded by the UNCW License Plate Program. The association's Awards & Scholarship Selection Committee also awards 18 other scholarships where a student's legacy affiliation is also taken into consideration.

Legacy Celebrations

During the Legacy Pinning Ceremony, families are celebrated and incoming students receive a commemorative pin. The Future Seahawks Legacy Reception on Seahawk Preview Day celebrates incoming legacy students and their families visiting campus.
