In your workplaces and communities, you are already inspiring others to “think and do.” At the Alumni Association, we are Pack Proud of how you help others be more productive and live better lives. We are here to connect you with each other and with NC State — through programs and services. And we want to cheer you on and share your stories of inspiration. Kipling said it best: “The strength of the Wolf is the Pack.” And the Pack we know is strong because it dreams big and builds a better tomorrow. The Alumni Association has NC State networks in North Carolina, across the nation and throughout the world. They bring NC State to your hometown.

And you are always welcome at your alumni home: the Dorothy and Roy Park Alumni Center, located on the shores of Lake Raleigh on Centennial Campus. Our goal is to keep you connected. Our award-winning NC State magazine will keep you informed about campus news and highlight the inspiring accomplishments of your fellow alumni (or your own).

    Dear Admiral Suggs, Benny, Congratulations on your latest award from NC State. We
    hope that all is well with you and your family. I am sure that NIcolas is in high school. Mary Jo and I are doing fine, just moving a little slower. Still swinging at the golf ball and Mary Jo is doing well with the garden club, winning blue ribbons and such. You have the e-mail address and the phone number is 757-484-4040. Let us hear from you
    when you have a spare minute. All the best, Captain George
