Caldwells on the Road

Since summer began we’ve heard from Caldwells travelling to six of the continents – Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North and South America are all hosting our students. We haven’t heard from anyone in Antarctica yet. In addition we have some wonderful Caldwells on campus busy with Summer Sessions. We’ve set the first Caldwell dinner seminar for Sunday, August 23 from 5-7pm in the Talley Ballroom. We can’t wait to hear your stories!

Seniors 2015

Getting Ready for a Caldwell Summer!

With the academic year over the Caldwell Fellows celebrated the end of classes with a picnic on April 24th at Pullen Park, and honored the Class of 2015 with a Senior Recognition Breakfast on May 8th at J.C. Raulston Arboretum. On May 9th SATELLITE Camp begins with 54 students from high schools around NC visiting our campus and learning about STEM majors. Caldwells will service as camp counselors. On May 10th 20 Caldwells will embark on the annual Wilderness Experience – this year to southern Utah. Soon after another 10 will head to Mexico for Summer Session 1 and the Vecinos Program. Many more will begin internships, further studies and personal and professional self-development programs. The Caldwell office will be open all summer and we encourage our students to keep in touch, send postcards and come in when you are close to campus. We will be busy planning an exciting Fall semester.

Caswell and Andi close the shack

Thanks to all who donated to Shack-a-thon!

Caswell and Andi close the shack

NC State’s effort to raise money for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County was a great success going many $1000’s over the goal of $37,500. The Caldwell Fellows team contributed over $5800.00 of that coming in third place. For over 15 years Shack-a-thon has been an annual tradition with the Caldwell Fellows and earning a spot in the top third of fundraisers over all. This year the fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County took over over the NC State brickyard from September 21-27. Current Caldwell students, families and alumni helped construct the Caldwell shack on Sunday, September 21 and Fellows lived in it all week selling raffle tickets and raising awareness about the need for safe homes for Wake County residents. Thanks to all who contributed money, time, skill and energy to promote this great cause!
