“Each time that I have graduated from NC State, I felt prepared for the career change that ensued. I received a great education that was hands-on, embedded with strong relationships and an enormous amount of success. Our professors wanted us to succeed. They were excited about our career advancements and our scholarly work. We always felt as though we had a ‘raving fan’ in our corner. I couldn’t have asked for more or better support.”
