Shack Last shift

Shack-a-thon is coming!

And the donation page is ready!

For over 15 years Shack-a-thon has been an annual tradition with the Caldwell Fellows. This year the fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County takes over the NC State brickyard from September 21-27. Current Caldwell students, families and alumni help construct the Caldwell shack on Sunday, September 21 and Fellows man it all week selling raffle tickets and raising awareness about the need for safe homes for Wake County residents. Last year we raised a record $5534.00 and we want to match or exceed that number this year. You can help! Donate today! Donation link here.

Shack is done!

Caldwells in Ethiopia

Caldwells in Ethiopia

Seven current Caldwells, one alumn, one Caldwell staffer, and one NC State Music professor spent all or part of Summer Session 2 in Ethiopia. The Caldwell students collaborated with Cherokee Gives Back (based in Raleigh and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) and their local Addis partners, and worked in various capacities in Addis Ababa for three weeks while also absorbing the culture of this beautiful country. After their work in Addis concluded the session continued with an eight day journey through northern Ethiopia, visiting amazing geographical and architectural wonders. Vistas that rival the Alps and the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls, some of the oldest churches, castles and monasteries in the world, fascinating cultural traditions, and warm and welcoming people made this an incredibly rich experience for all the participants. The travelers were Matt Anderson, Megan Broders, Daniel Buchenberger, Jillian Hendryx, Jen Murphy, Hannah Osborne, Rajan Singh, Shelley Smith, Jonathan Kramer and Liz Holt.

An unlikely teacher


Read about Caldwell alumn, Patrick White, in this story from the NC State Alumni Blog.

Growing up in Greenville, N.C., Patrick White was struck by how hard his mom worked as a middle school science teacher. So when he went off to study chemistry and math at NC State, he had no interest in teaching as a possible career.

“I thought the last thing I would do was be a teacher,” he says. Read more
