My name is Keith Fraser and I am a new First-Year Coordinator for the UNCW Office of Admissions. As an alumnus of UNCW, I am truly honored and privileged to be back on campus working with prospective and interested students. This is such a wonderful opportunity to share my passion and love for UNCW with future Seahawks. First, let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I was born and raised in West Milford, NJ, and moved to Wilmington a few days before I began my freshman year in high school. I share that because I can empathize with both out of state and in state students. Transitioning into freshman year can be daunting, but through my experience at UNCW, I was truly impressed with the services and support our community offers. When I first started at UNCW, I lived at home and worked full time. By the end of my freshman year, I moved to campus and immersed myself in campus life. This experience gave me such a lens into how diverse and unique our campus community is. During my time as an undergraduate at UNCW, I held several on-campus positions. I worked for the Campus Activities and Involvement Center, Transition Programs and the Student Health Center. By my senior year, I had the privilege to serve as Student Body President –an incredible journey that allowed me an insight into how the entire UNCW community works together for the greater good of all students. After four wonderful years, I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. I am now interested in one day continuing my education through the Public Administration graduate program at UNCW.
For the last year, I served as the Lead Mathematics teacher in a small middle school in South Carolina. This afforded me the chance to see how important college admissions and communications are with any student, regardless of where they are in their academic journey. In my new role, I will be the regional counselor for the Capital Area in North Carolina (Wake and Orange County). Regardless of where you are in your college search, please feel free to reach out with any and all questions pertaining to UNCW, campus life or the application process. I look forward to working with all students and being there each step of the way.
With Seahawk pride,
Keith R. Fraser ‘13
First-Year Admissions Coordinator
