Whenever you’re hanging out or studying in the Union, be sure to remember the hardworking students involved with the Carolina Union Activities Board. Tom Low has been involved with CUAB for multiple years now, and next year you can call him president of the Union. As president, Low will oversee long-range planning for the Union and help manage the opening of Wendy’s in the fall.
“It’s really fun to be involved with planning campus events. I get to meet a lot of cool people that I probably wouldn’t otherwise be around,” Low said about his time with CUAB.
After college, Low hopes to work at a marketing firm in New York City. He already has some experience in marketing as he interned at Howard, Merrell & Partners in Raleigh last summer. He eventually wants to return to North Carolina and settle down in Wilmington, N.C..
Low cites Ecuador as his favorite place to travel. In high school, he vacationed in the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador. He decided to go back during spring break his freshman year to a remote village. There he taught English to the locals. He would love to go back soon!
One of his favorite memories of Carolina was when he got tickets to the UNC vs. Duke basketball game last year. He loved rushing Franklin Street after UNC won. He also has fond memories of hanging out with his suitemates freshman year.
If you ever see Low on campus, stop to ask him about the Union. Low is such a friendly and easy-going guy that he definitely wouldn’t mind chatting!
