I’m a senior this year and yesterday it finally hit me. I went to my last game at Carter Finley and got to watch our Wolfpack beat Wake Forest in a 42-13 game. It was also the Military Appreciation Day game which made it all the more special. Throughout the game and halftime, we recognized all of the seniors on the football team, band, and ROTC. One of the best things to see at Carter Finley is the American flag being spread across the field during halftime. It was a bittersweet moment seeing all of the names of fellow seniors show up on the big screen knowing we would all be leaving our Wolfpack in the spring. I know there might be some freshman out there thinking this is going to be the longest four years of your life because I was one of them. The time really has flown by and I didn’t think I would be so nostalgic already. It’s still the first semester and I am already missing NC State. So while you’re here, do as much as you can. Join clubs and participate in everything that’s available to you. Go to all of the football games and hang out with your friends. I have had some of the best times at NC State and I know I am going to miss it when I’m gone. Sorry for being sentimental, but I’m sure you’ll feel the same when it’s your senior year.

If you didn’t know, NC State has a big tradition of having really awesome Homecoming events. Coming up this weekend (November 8, 2014) the Wolfpack is taking on Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets for our big home game. But before the game, there’s a big concert on Thursday night! The Student Alumni Association is bringing Big Sean, T-Pain, and Jeremiah to our campus for a big concert. The best part? Tickets were only $10 if students got them before they ran out.
This is just one exciting event that happens during NC State’s Homecoming week. Additionally, the Pep Rally is on November 9th on Hillsborough Street. Students should be sure not to miss out, because they will be handing out free giveaways and the Wolfpack Spirit is at an all time high.
There’s never a better time to have school spirit than during Homecoming week! Be sure to cheer on the Wolfpack!

Hello Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed this year’s homecoming! We had a week packed full of fun and exciting events. Wear red, get fed provided free food Monday - Friday for all students wearing red. For desert, a stop by the brickyard would get you Kupcakes 4 Kay! You know the Wolfpack loves their free food! If we weren’t out and about eating our free food, we were getting free T-shirts or participating in a good cause by donating blood. My personal favorite Homecoming event was the PackHowl concert on Thursday. We had T-Pain, Jeremih, and Big Sean give us one of our best concerts yet! Despite the pouring rain, the Wolfpack showed up in great numbers! Lastly, to end our week, we had a football game against Georgia Tech. The outcome may not have been what we desired, but they played a great game! Already looking forward to next year.

The NC State football team traveled some 630 miles this weekend to play Syracuse in a battle for fifth place in the conference. The game was neck-and-neck throughout the four quarters, but the Wolfpack fought until the very last second to come out on top 24 to 17. (To see the highlights of NC State’s defeat against Syracuse and the turn of events that occurred, check out this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GtY09qtJHU#t=98). This is the first ACC win for the Wolfpack since their victory over Boston College on November 24th, 2012. The team’s rebuilding year with head coach Dave Doeren has been an extensive one, but the team chemistry and performance from here on out is sure to benefit from it. As of now, the Wolfpack needs just one more win to become bowl eligible for the 2014 season.
This weekend is NC State’s Homecoming and we will be playing Georgia Tech at 12:30PM. Don’t forget to request your ticket for the game! However, if you’re unable to come out to the game, you can catch it on ESPN 3. This week will be filled with events to rally up spirit for NCSU as we take on the Yellow Jackets this Saturday. To see a schedule of events for this week, check out this link: http://www.alumni.ncsu.edu/s/1209/homecoming/index.aspx?sid=1209&gid=1&pgid=3545.
Well Wolfpack, have a great week, study hard, show your support for your school, and let’s get a win this weekend!
