Twenty-six outstanding N.C. State freshmen have been named the Caldwell Fellows Class of 2020. These exceptional students were selected on the basis of their outstanding character, leadership potential, scholarship and their dedication to service.
The following sixty students (listed with their College designations) exhibited through their essays and videos that they have a passion for servant leadership, academic excellence, and “thinking big.” They participated in Selection Day interviews on February 18. We congratulate all of them for taking on the challenge and contributing their energy to this important day in the Caldwell year.

During Wolfpack Welcome Week the Caldwell Fellows will hold two information sessions (back-to-back) on Tuesday, August 16 in Witherspoon Student Center Room 201 from noon to 1:00PM and 1:00PM to 2:00PM. Please join us for an informal presentation and a chance to ask questions of our director, Dr. Janice Odom, and current Caldwell Fellows students!
Janice Odom, two members of our Professional Development Coaching Team, eight current Fellows and one alumn travelled to Spain on May 17 to begin their pilgrimage walk on the Camino de Compostelo de Santiago. Here they are after completing the goal on June 2: “We made it to Santiago. 14 days. 309km. Countless hills and blisters. Exponential insights. Excessive hilarity. Amazing group. Proud.” (JO)

Twenty-three Caldwell Fellows students and seven leaders (six Caldwell alumni and Jerry Barker) returned Sunday and Monday from trips to the Lost Coast of northern California and the western portion of the Mountain-to-Sea Trail in North Carolina. Two teams of 8 plus 5 leaders tackled west coast sand and water, while a team of 7 and 2 leaders in NC ascended and descended their mountainous trail. Challenges, both mental and physical, and plenty of fun were experienced by all. The CA group brought an actual buoy signed by all back to the Caldwell office as a souvenir! Check the Caldwell Fellows Facebook page for more stories. As soon as the Wilderness groups returned Dr. Janice Odom and eight Caldwells and two of our Caldwell coaches left for Spain for three weeks on the Camino de Santiago de Campostelo.
On Friday morning, May 6, the Caldwell Fellows Class of 2016 was recognized for their completion of the program at a breakfast at the McKimmon Center attended by their families, special guests and endowers. They shared plans for summer trips, research and internships, graduate school, full-time jobs and fifth years at NC State. Even though they have officially graduated from the Caldwell Fellows three-and-a-half year program, we look forward to welcoming them back again and again as Caldwell Fellows alumni.

SATELLITE (Science and Technology Enriching Lifelong Leadership in Tomorrow’s Endeavors) is a non-profit organization run by students from NC State, and is an initiative of the Caldwell Fellows. It is designed to introduce students from rural North Carolina high schools to science and technology related educational and career paths through a five-day retreat on the NC State campus each May. Approximately fifty high school sophomores experience a wide array of demonstrations, lectures, and hands-on laboratory experiments with the assistance of professors and currently enrolled students from across NC State’s campus.
