Day of Giving 2020

March 17 Update: Because of concern and caution regarding the spread of COVID-19 and its impact on campus and throughout our community, NC State has elected to postpone Day of Giving originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 25. More information about NC State’s response, campus announcements, important updates and a growing list of resources can be found at


How to Get a T-shirt (While Supplies Last)

Our Day of Giving 2020 limited-edition T-shirt features a wolf that our longtime faculty member and three-time alumnus Johnny Crow ’62, ’68MS, ’85EDD illustrated when he was a cartoonist for the Technician student newspaper in the 1950s. Johnny called his wolf Zeke Woof.

In honor of Day of Giving, the 100th anniversary of Technician and Johnny Crow, we have ordered a limited supply of T-shirts featuring Zeke. Want a chance to get one? Become one of the NC State College of Education’s Day of Giving Social Media Ambassadors. Complete the form, and we’ll follow up with details about how you can support the college March 25 and help us win challenges to earn more funds. (i.e. Post Day of Giving-related content on Twitter.)

Note: A limited supply of T-shirts will be distributed after Day of Giving based on level of participation on social media and while supplies last.

How Zeke Woof Came to Be

Johnny L. Crow '62, '68MS, '85EDD shares his story behind his drawing of Zeke Woof -- believed to be one of the earliest iterations of NC State’s wolf head, now known as Tuffy. Crow retired as assistant professor emeritus of technology, engineering, and design education after a 50-year association with the NC State College of Education.
