When some 5,000 NC State students turned their tassels on May 14, 986 CHASS students were among them. The News and Observer’s Josh Shaffer reported that the loudest cheers of the RBC graduation ceremony went to CHASS, when Dean Jeff Braden said this: “I present these candidates, who will answer the question, ‘What do you do with a degree in humanities and social sciences?’ with the answer, ‘Anything you want!’”
On the afternoon before graduation, CHASS hosted a reception in Caldwell Lounge to honor and celebrate graduating seniors who hold college or department named scholarships. Students and their families mingled with donors, Advisory Board members, college administrators, and members of the faculty.
Through the generosity of our donors, scholarships were awarded to 17 outstanding undergraduates. Some are heading off to graduate school, some are traveling overseas to teach, and others are setting out to find that all-important first job.
Congratulations to the Class of 2011!
