Scholarship Continues to Support NC State Families
More than $1 million in Employee Dependent’s Tuition Scholarship funds have been awarded to dependents of full-time NC State employees since 2016. And more than 300 donors, most of them staff and faculty members themselves, have joined Chancellor Randy Woodson and his wife Susan by supporting the fund.
To the Universe and Beyond
Every child grows up with a dream. Ana Sofia Uzsoy, a Park Scholar at NC State, wanted to be an astronomer. She has already been able to pursue topics that fit that dream, and she plans to pursue her doctorate in computational astrophysics.
Unique Dendritic Sticky Particles Formed by Harnessing ‘Liquid Chaos’
New research from NC State shows that unique materials with distinct properties akin to those of gecko feet – the ability to stick to just about any surface – can be created by harnessing liquid-driven chaos to produce soft polymer microparticles with hierarchical branching on the micro- and nanoscale. The findings, described in the journal Nature Materials, hold the potential for advances in gels, pastes, foods, nonwovens, coatings and more. Orlin Velev, S. Frank and Doris Culberson Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, is corresponding author of the paper.
All in Good Chime
For decades, the NC State community enjoyed regular concerts ringing out across campus from the Memorial Belltower. With a new chapter of Belltower history about to begin, alumni carillonneurs share a few of their favorite memories of playing those concerts as students.
Constructing More than Buildings
Min Liu, associate professor in the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering, educates students and leads conversations about construction project management locally and internationally, with support from the Edward I. Weisiger Distinguished Scholar endowed faculty position.
Emily Caporali’s Belltower memories began before she ever enrolled at NC State, and though she graduated in 2017, she is still making extraordinary memories at the site – with help from her fiancé Chase Timmons and her longtime friend, retired vice chancellor of student affairs Tom Stafford.
