Posted February 14, 2020, 11:54AM

Maya Davis, a senior Interdisciplinary Studies major shares her top 10 reasons why she loves North Carolina Central University. 

1. Service

NCCU loves to give back to the surrounding community. Building upon NCCU’s motto of “Truth and Service,” students serve the local community, which is rewarding in many ways.  

2. Campus Experiences

We create so many memories living on campus. Living on campus has given me the true college experience, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Members of the Beta Omicron Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. gave yellow roses to Eagles in celebration of Valentine's Day.

3. Rivalries

Everybody wants to be an EAGLE, but since they can’t be one, they try to imitate and duplicate EAGLE success. 

4. Durham

From its eclectic atmosphere and welcoming downtown area, Durham is a great place to call home. 

5. Faculty and Staff

NCCU’s faculty and staff are always willing to help, no matter the time or the place. 

Randal Childs, interim associate vice chancellor for development presented fellow staff members with a rose on Valentine’s Day.

6. Opportunities

NCCU offers many different opportunities to develop our career path and get involved in things around campus and in our local community. 

7. Pride

Our pride is always amplified. “Eagle Pride Amplified!” 

8. Students

At the end of the day, NCCU is a family. It wouldn’t be the same without the loving energy of my fellow Eagle students.

NCCU's 2019-2020 Women's Volleyball Team gave cake pops to fellow Eagles as a Valentine's Day gesture.

9. Resources

NCCU prepares us for life outside of this beautiful campus. NCCU also provides us with the resources we need to soar high. 

10. Discoveries 

NCCU has definitely played a part in assisting me to become the person that I am today.
