For the past seven years on the first two days of classes, UNCG has seen a flood of lime green scattered around campus. Students wearing lime green shirts with “Ask Me” buttons are known as Spartan SPEARS. These student volunteers are placed all over campus to point the way for new students trying to navigate our campus. This August, over 190 students participated in the SPEARS initiative and were seen helping answer questions and guide students. New Student Transitions & First Year Experience hopes to continue seeing more students participate as a SPEAR in the future. If you have a student group interested in participating, contact Shakinah Simeona-Lee in NST & FYE, and be on the lookout for more lime green in January and next August.
