Chancellor Randy Woodson hosted a group of NC State alumni in Greensboro last night for a dessert reception and a presentation on how textiles continue to evolve to meet the changing needs of society.
Woodson talked to the group about the new freshman class at NC State and other bits of news from campus. The reception, held at the Greensboro Woman’s Club, was the latest in a series of events with alumni that Woodson and the Alumni Association have hosted in North Carolina, across the country and internationally.
The Greensboro alumni also heard a presentation from Dr. David Hinks, Cone Mills Professor of Textile Chemistry at NC State. He talked to the group about how NC State is using textiles to, among other things, advance forensic science, increase battery energy efficiency and protect first responders and members of the armed services.
