Young alumni

Formed in 2018 by the NC State Engineering Foundation, the Young Alumni Advisory Board (YAAB) consists of NC State alumni who are fewer than 15 years post-graduation from their last degree earned. The program was created to encourage support from the growing population of College of Engineering young alumni, many of whom are thrilled to have a way to stay connected to the Wolfpack.
