Getting Ready for a Caldwell Summer!

As the academic year winds down the Caldwell Fellowss will celebrate the end of classes with a picnic on April 24th at Pullen Park and 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!

Class of 2016 Retreat Fall 14

Class of 2016 Junior Retreat

The Junior Class (Caldwell class of 2016) reconnected for a September weekend at Aqueduct Retreat Center. There was time for work on personal statements and resumes and reviewing strengths and goals, and time for enjoying musical talents of current Caldwell and visiting alumni, who came to share not only their experiences since graduating, but some tunes as well!
