Students Give Back
On Tuesday, March 28, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Poole College of Management students can drop by the Student Commons in Nelson Hall for Bruegger’s, Duck Donuts, Jersey Mike’s, and H-Street Kitchen — and support the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign.
The Poole College Student Philanthropy Council is providing students an early opportunity to give before the official NC State University Student Giving Day celebration on Wednesday, March 29. The Council will also host a table in Nelson Hall on that date from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students can also give at various campus locations, including Talley Student Union and online.
Student Giving Day aims to establish a dialogue on campus about how philanthropy affects all 34,000 students at NC State. Poole College of Management Dean Annette Ranft has pledged a generous gift to the college if at least 200 students participate. It’s as easy as giving $20.17.
“I try to explain that any amount makes a difference – whether that’s five dollars, 10 dollars or 20 dollars – when collectively we all, as a student body, give back,” said Tyler Ligon, president of the Poole College of Management Student Philanthropy Council.
“Really reflect on your time here as a student, and look around at the countless opportunities and great experiences you’ve had here,” Ligon said. “Don’t you want to give back to this wonderful school so that future students can have the same kind of opportunities you did – and hopefully better opportunities because of the money we all raised?”
