wake_senior71The Alumni Association welcomed more than 150 incoming NC State freshmen, their families and friends from Wake County into the Wolfpack family this evening at the Dorothy and Roy Park Alumni Center.

The latest Senior Send-Off, hosted by the Wake County alumni network, gave graduating high school seniors a chance to get a look at NC State and get some pointers from current students and university officials on making the transition from high school to college.

“The sky is truly the limit,” Benny Suggs, executive director of the Alumni Association, told the incoming students. “You have a Wolfpack family that is here to support you.”

Judi Grainger, president of the Alumni Association, told the students that the Alumni Association is here to serve students and alumni.

“Our doors are open,” she said. “We want to help you any way we can.”

Dr. Thomas Stafford, vice chancellor for student affairs, advised the students to take advantage of some of the hundreds of opportunities available at a large university such as NC State. But he also encouraged them to look for chances to become members of smaller communities within NC State.
