The Alumni Association is also launching a raffle for a chance to win a one-week stay in the Outer Banks. ā€œOver The Duneā€ is a gorgeous, 3,000 square-foot, six-bedroom home, located on the beach road in Kitty Hawk. Raffle tickets will be sold for $50 each and only 150 tickets will be sold. The winner of the raffle can choose their week to stay between March 15 – April 15, 2021 (based on availability).

Proceeds raised will benefit COA Cares, an initiative that helps students who may be struggling with unexpected financial burdens that could hinder their program completion.
