Pack Appreciation Day 2021

On our third annual Pack Appreciation Day, students showed up to share their appreciation to the tens of thousands of donors who have made the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign such a transformational success.

Each day, NC State donors fuel the extraordinary, from scholarships and student enrichment programs to faculty support and research opportunities. Is it any wonder that we’re filled with #PackAppreciation?

After a virtual Pack Appreciation Day in 2020, we welcomed students back to Stafford Commons to celebrate how the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign has made a positive impact on every part of NC State  — and honor the people who have made it possible. More than 1,800 students wrote thank-you cards, shared social media posts and recorded video messages for our donors, while over 80 volunteers connected with those participants about the impact of philanthropy.

We’re so grateful to our donors and to our students for making our third annual Pack Appreciation Day such a success. Revisit some highlights and hear just a few messages of how donors like you are making a difference today, tomorrow and in the future because of your generosity during this Campaign.
