All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it? Not me! Yeah, grad school’s keeping me busy but I’m making sure I make time to get involved and enjoy activities on campus too. About a month ago, Intramural Volleyball started and I had a great opportunity to get on a team. We are six games in and haven’t lost yet. Not only is the competition invigorating but its been a fun way to meet people outside the School of Social Work and, not to mention, a wonderful stress reliever. For 45 minutes, all that matters is that white ball. And then of course its back to reality, school, papers, field placements, meetings- but now I’m fully charged.


About Liz Leon

After attending UNCG for my BSW and spending some time in the field, I am excited to be part of the Advanced Standing MSW class of 2013. My concentration is Community, Management and Policy Practice and I am doing my internship in Greensboro, working with refugees and immigrants. Besides academics, I always make time for the extracurriculars and enjoy just about anything as long as it involves my favorite people. Please don't hesitate to contact me at if you have any questions about the Advanced Standing Program or UNC's School of Social Work in general.
