A nice event summarized here in Technician. (Thank goodness they weren’t trying to write about sports). Woodson said when he arrived at N.C. State aft

I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again:
I love me some Randy.04/08/2014 at 8:24 AM #50875TopTenPackParticipant04/08/2014 at 8:44 AM #50879fozParticipant
Just a side note about the good Chancellor – apparently he is a bit of a homebrewer. I ran into him at Atlantic Brew supply a couple of weeks ago (ACC Tournament Weekend). Just spoke in passing with him, but he sounded like a super nice\down to earth guy.04/08/2014 at 8:45 AM #50880GeneParticipant
Woodson seems to be doing a very good job.04/08/2014 at 8:54 AM #50881GAWolfKeymaster
Having had the great pleasure of personally speaking to Randy Woodson on several occasions in several different settings, I can tell you that he’s a hell of a (Renaissance) man. He’s exactly what our University needed. He can talk to anyone on their level and he’s personable and sincere.
I’ve said this before but when we hired him I reached out to the Purdue golf coach who was once at Chapel Hill through his son. The assessments of Woodson as a University administrator and leader were something you don’t hear often from anyone critiquing anything: completely 100% positive.
With him at the helm, the golden age of NC State University is ahead. It’s an exciting time to be an alum.04/08/2014 at 9:44 AM #50885TexpackParticipant
Looking forward to meeting Dr. Woodson next week as the Houston Chapter of the NC State Alumni Association hosts a reception for him at Space Center Houston. The head of the Physics Department is supposed to speak. Let’s see how many of the 600+ Alumni in the greater Houston slug their way down the Gulf Fwy for the event.
As for the brand, our neighbor, who thinks she wants to major in Bio-Medical Engineering is strongly considering NC State even though her mom went to Wake and her dad is an Aggie.04/08/2014 at 9:48 AM #50887old13Participant
I had the privilege of attending NCSU when John Caldwell was Chancellor. Randy Woodson reminds me very much of John. And, to me, that’s saying quite a bit for Randy.04/08/2014 at 10:04 AM #50889ryebreadParticipant
For the first time in the past 20 years, we have a Chancellor who actually is focused on the right things, has a plan and has the leadership abilities to actually bring it to reality.
We need to keep Woodson a long, long time.04/08/2014 at 10:32 AM #50896BJD95Keymaster

So did the University have to kiss the ring of the NSA in order to get the semiconductor deal? Not at all happy about having the NSA running their crap on my alma mater’s campus.

Ha, I can remember a day when I was significantly to Wally’s right! 😀04/08/2014 at 5:12 PM #50951MrPlywoodParticipant
I have bookmarked the ROI page and will happily trot that out whenever a *nx student, alum or fan has anything to say about the quality of one education vs another.04/09/2014 at 9:51 PM #51021blpackParticipant
Grads are the best brand, love it! NCSU grads are proud of our school and we know our degree is worth more today than yesterday.
