Giving Back to Give Forward
Wednesday, March 28 is Student Giving Day. Three NC State students -- Matthew Cherry, Alex Ives and Caleb Parker -- are leading the efforts to motivate their classmates to make a difference and provide education on the impact of private support.
Taking the Lead
For senior Abel Walker, the opportunities offered by the Caldwell Program have "changed everything" about his college experience.
Two Internships, One Year
As a sophomore, NC State Park Scholar and political science major Aoife Sinclair already has built an impressive resume. For the past two semesters, she has taken a break from her on-campus studies to pursue internships with television programs "Sesame Street" and "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee."
Goodnight Spotlight: Catrina Rateb
Waxhaw native and chemical engineering major Catrina Rateb credits the Goodnight Scholars Program with helping her grow and develop into a well-rounded individual.
A Coffee Shop with a Purpose
Four Park Scholars in the Class of 2021 have started pop-up shop 321 Coffee, staffed by individuals with intellectual and developmental disorders. According to Lindsay Wrege, CEO, the organization is meant "to provide meaningful volunteer work experience for adults with special needs, as well as a space for the NC State and Raleigh [populace] to interact with the special-needs community."

AgPack Strong: Larry Coats
One of Larry Coats' high school teachers, Fred Manley, inspired him to switch to the college prep track and attend NC State – a decision that changed his life. Coats is now an intellectual property lawyer who recently established a scholarship to honor Manley.
Duo Presents Modern-Art Masterworks
Modern-art pioneers Robert K. Black and J. Ormond Sanderson Jr. will display their own work and items from their collection in Design Duet, an exhibition at the Gregg Museum of Art & Design. Last year, the couple decided to provide long-term support to the Gregg in the form of a planned gift.
Investing in the Wolfpack
NC State MBA startup Tethis has received the Wolfpack Investor Network’s largest capital raise to date. The company was co-founded by Scott Bolin (MBA ’12) based on work he and fellow students did in their technology, entrepreneurship and commercialization (TEC) concentration team project in the Jenkins MBA program.
