The original class of the Young Alumni Advisory Board included just 12 members and has since grown to 31 members, including five who were added last fall. Now, those original members’ terms are coming to an end, and they can look back on what they have accomplished in just four years.

NC State Engineering Foundation surpasses campaign goals

With the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign at its end, the College of Engineering raised almost $268 million over the course of five years, an incredible outpouring of generosity from our dedicated alumni and friends in support of undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, professorships, improved facilities and the programs that make our student experiences exceptional, such as the Women and Minority Engineering Programs.

Long-EZ Aircraft donation to increase teaching, learning options

Walter Grantz’ passion for flying led him to building his own Long-EZ aircraft — a tandem two-seater with a swept main wing with root leading-edge strakes and winglets, foam-fiberglass sandwich composite structure and a “canard” front wing that makes the plane stall resistant. Powered by a Lycoming O-235 engine, he completed the aircraft in 1991.
