Her Campus: What is your favorite part about UNCW?
Darius Melton: I really like the opportunities to get involved with the campus and meet people. I’ve attended most ACE events, I was a member of seven clubs last semester, I got an internship out in town thanks to this school. Through all of these, I’ve met great people and had amazing experiences.
HC: What is your animal alter-ego?
DM: You know those monkeys that wear little bellhop outfits and bang cymbals together in the streets for money? I think I’m one of those.
HC: What clubs/organizations are you involved at UNCW:
DM: Currently, I am involved with The Seahawk, Japan Club, Screenwriter’s Club, and Campus Christian Fellowship on a regular basis, but I also occasionally attend Anime Club, Table Top, Technology and Gaming Club, and recently Improv Club.
HC: If you had a superpower what would it be and why?
DM: I’d want stretching powers like Jake the Dog has in “Adventure Time.” I think it’s cool that his power is also a bunch of other powers: he can shrink, grow, shape-shift into items like keys and blowhorns. His power’s only limited by your creativity, which is right up my alley.
