Chancellor Jose V. Sartarelli sent a holiday greeting video out to all students at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington on Wednesday.
"I always tell our students to dream big and try new things whenever possible," stated Sartarelli in the beginning of the video. He took his own advice in 2016 and visited classrooms around UNCW to try new things.
Sartarelli can be seen learning CPR, learning to surf, making pottery, doing science experiments and even attempting to take on the duties of Sammy the Seahawk among other things.
Chancellor Sartarelli joined UNCW in July of 2015 and came from West Virginia University where he served as the Milan Puskar Dean of the College of Business and Economics for five years.
