Designed to help people take small and everyday steps to preserve their files, this four-part tutorial video describes why file naming is important, how to change a file name and the dos and donts of file naming.

During its first season (1977-1978), the UNCW football club enjoyed big wins against undefeated clubs from Appalachian State and and NC State.  UNCW won its season opener in Fall, 1979. There is not much information about the 1980 season.  A new team was formed in 1981 due to discipline problems. The 1981 season finished with a record of 2-8.
