Pack Appreciation Day 2019

On our first Pack Appreciation Day, we showed our appreciation to the tens of thousands of donors who have supported our Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign.

Over the course of the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign, nearly 88,000 donors have invested in strengthening every corner of NC State’s campus. The impact of your support is already making an incredible difference — increasing endowed faculty positions, supporting more students through scholarships and fellowships, making study abroad more accessible and enhancing our physical spaces. NC State’s culture of philanthropy is thriving.

We recently celebrated our first-ever Pack Appreciation Day to engage students about the positive impact of private support. More than 1,500 students gathered at Stafford Commons to learn about philanthropy and to share messages of appreciation on social media. 

Your support means so much to our Pack. Below are just a few highlights of the day — and what your generosity continues to make possible.

Share Your Story

Every gift has a story, and nearly 88,000 Campaign donors represent so many stories. Whether you give back as an alum, parent, faculty member, staff member, student or friend, we want to hear from you. Tell us what you support (scholarships, athletics, etc.) and why you give back to NC State.

Engineering excellence. 🤩🐺🐾

Today we formally dedicated Fitts-Woolard Hall, a world-class academic and research building. Home to @ncstateccee and @ncstateise, Fitts-Woolard Hall is a major step toward the vision of bringing all of @ncstateengr onto NC State’s Centennial Campus. 

“In the past 10 years, engineering undergraduate enrollment has grown by 20%, and we have plans to continue to grow that because the workforce of the state demands that growth,” Chancellor Woodson said at today’s dedication event.

Fitts-Woolard Hall was made possible thanks to support from the state of North Carolina, hundreds of @ncstatealumni, and a $25M gift from alumni Edward P. Fitts, Jr. and Edgar S. Woolard, Jr.

Ed Fitts spoke to the meaning and purpose behind his investment in NC State: “You [the students] are our future and our legacy. As a Wolfpack family, it is our duty, all of us, to help forge the way and eliminate barriers to your success, and this building is a major milestone in that regard.”
