Please DO NOT disregard this blog entry as some non-sports entry in which you don’t have any interest. If you are, were, or may be a student at NC State at some point in your life, then the topic of “The Student Experience” at NC State should be of extreme importance to you.
Unfortunately, the quality of “The Student Experience” has not been of extreme importance to the ‘good folks’ at NC State for quite a long time and Technician is writing about the topic in a must read piece.
They don’t hesitate to place the spotlight on Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, Tom Stafford. Under Stafford’s reign, NC State has seen the end of institutional traditions such as student campouts, The Lawn Party and Wolfstock while other key social elements to the student experience like Hillsborough Street and the Greek system of deteriorated to near death. (Just to name a few)
We are going to have have more on this later in the day…but my morning is swamped. I wanted to get this on the blog asap in hopes some of our best readers would share their thoughts and insights on NC State’s continuously dwindling student experience.
In short, NC State is becoming a large commuter school.
Please share some of your comments, thoughts and insights.
