Howling Success

Our 24,000+ undergraduate students do extraordinary things every day, excelling in the classroom while participating in extracurricular activities. They make a difference in the community and shape themselves into productive citizens. The Division of Academic and Student Affairs’ Howling Success initiative aims to recognize our truly exceptional and well-rounded undergraduate students who are showing how they Think and Do.

Students who are recognized for their Howling Success will be given a platform to tell their story and guide future students. The Division of Academic and Student Affairs will howl their success through a series of public-facing promotional content, such as digital articles, videos, and print material. They will also receive a certificate in recognition of their accomplishments.

Howling Success is accepting nominations from all NC State University faculty and staff.NC State student smiling
