Really, NC State athletics is in a unique position. We get to represent all of Wolfpack Nation and that’s an important responsibility to make them proud but at the same time not sacrificing what we have as our expectations for academics and for citizenship. When you put all three of those elements together, you have what intercollegiate athletics was always meant to be. Approximately 550 student-athletes on 23 varsity teams have the opportunity to earn college degrees. We literally could not have an athletic program in the Atlantic Coast Conference without donor support. Every penny for scholarships comes through donors to the Wolfpack Club. You know, the best thing about the campaign is it rallies the Wolfpack family together. Whether people choose to give to the chemistry department or to the English department or to the sciences or to athletics, it’s all about our family, one family trying to meet our potential and become the very best that we can.
