Visit with current Caldwell Fellows and the Program Director, Janice Odom, during Wolfpack Welcome Week! We will host an information session on Tuesday, August 19 from 11:00am-12:00pm in Witherspoon Student Center Room 201. Hear about this unique program available only to first year students at NC State, learn how to apply, and most important – ask us questions!
As the 2013-2014 year drew to a close, we gathered for a final group dinner seminar at the end of March. We hosted a panel of three Caldwell Alumni who had taken the spirit and ethos of the Caldwell Program, and John T. Caldwell himself, beyond their time at NC State. Many more Caldwell alumni were present to share their experiences with the new class of Caldwells (2017) and the current classes of 2014, ’15 and ’16.
Justin LeBlanc, Jared Milrad, and Vansana Nolintha have been working on projects that have embodied the impact that the Caldwell Program encourages. Continue reading

Last month we welcomed back both teams of Wilderness adventurers! Team 2 consisted of Kimani Hall, Amanda Marshall, Hillary Spangler, Cam White, Jessica Neville, Andelica Gonzales, DT Oliver, Jenna Pye, and three leaders including Jerry Barker, Brian Ingram and Paul Mobley. Wilderness Team #1 members (pictured except for those who went on to other destinations) were Lydia Allen, Ann Margaret Dietrich, Thomas Harris, John Mitchell, Kaitlyn Oppenheim, Will Pfitzner, Julia Rao, Rajan Singh, Brian Schuster, Alan Sheridan, and team leaders, Ethan Lineberger and Robert Horner. All reported an amazing experience in the Sierra Nevadas and something they will long remember. They tackled many days of hiking, climbing, cooking, eating and sleeping out of doors in high altitudes and below freezing temps at night. Team members transitioned straight into summer school, study abroad and work. Ann Margaret, Alan and Brian from Team 1 were Class of 2013 graduates and all are moving or have already moved out of state to start careers in Tennessee, California and Michigan respectively. Team 2 graduates Hillary Spangler, Cam White and Jessica Neville are starting advanced degrees and service work.

Congratulations to the Caldwell Fellows class of 2013. We will recognize the seniors at a luncheon at the NC State Arboretum on Friday May 10. Immediately after graduation many of the seniors will embark on one of two Wilderness trips this year to the Sierra Nevada mountains and/or help facilitate the SATELLITE Camp right here on NC State campus. The annual camp introduces fifty high school students from around NC to majors and career options in Science and Technology.
Two Caldwell Fellows Scholars have received graduate research fellowships from the National Science Foundation. Brinda Monian, is a chemical engineering and biochemistry major, a Goldwater Scholar and a member of the University Honors Program. Neil Shah is a computer science major and a member of the University Honors Program. (Brinda is pictured lower right, Neil in middle).
And Brian Schuster (pictured on left) was recognized in the New Faces of Engineering – College Edition. Brian is using his engineering skills to advance renewable fuel production and develop a versatile sole technology for outdoor and military footwear.
