Your Campaign Update
Since its public launch in October 2016, the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign has transformed NC State, with over 120,000 donors coming together to create more scholarships, support more faculty and redefine the learning experience.
The Legend Continues
The Memorial Belltower has been the site of countless Wolfpack memories, and we want to hear yours.
On Friday, May 14, thanks to a century’s worth of generosity and commitment from alumni, including Bill (’81) and Frances Henry, real bells rang out across NC State for the first time. And every time those bells ring, their sound will remind us of something extraordinary: the incredible ways in which the Wolfpack has come together to honor our legacy and to set the course for our future through this Campaign.
Read on to learn more about how your support helps us be the real-world university of the people we’ve always been in bold and innovative ways.
A Legend in Stone
Celebrate the reopening Memorial Belltower at Henry Square with a virtual tour, a recording of the dedication ceremony and inaugural carillon performance, and stories of the tower's history, traditions and significance to the Wolfpack.
An Extraordinary Milestone
At the beginning of the Campaign, fewer than 10 percent of NC State professors held named and endowed positions, which put us behind our peer institutions. Our donors have responded to this need, bringing us to the incredible milestone of 100 faculty positions endowed since the launch.
Extraordinary Opportunity: Rome Williams
NC State defensive tackle Rome Williams is the recipient of a new type of financial aid that allows him to play for the Pack while preparing for life after football. The only thing more impactful than this student-athlete is his scholarship.
