NC State is having a birthday party, and you’re invited!

Alumni, students, staff and other friends of the university are invited to a celebration on Monday of NC State’s 125th anniversary. The party is being held from 1:30-2:30 p.m. at Reynolds Coliseum. Doors open at 1 p.m. and, best of all, it’s free.

The party will feature lots and lots of giveways, including Tradition Scarves and other great Wolfpack gear.  Entertainment is being provided by DJ Tim Gunter, emcee Kornelius Bascombe, the band Old Man Whickutt and other special surprise guests.

The Wolfpack basketball team, fresh off their Sweet 16 run in the NCAA basketball tournament, will also be there. Come by and say hello!

And, of course, no birthday party is complete without cake and ice cream, so we’ll have that, too. See you at the party!

Following the party, the Alumni Association Student Ambassador Program is hosting the first annual Tradition Run.

The event will begin the Brickyard, where teams of two will race around campus to complete several NC State traditions in 1 hour and 25 minutes (in honor of the 125th anniversary, of course). Alumni are invited to come out and cheer the students on.
