[HOWL] Pack your calendar this week!


Good evening, Wolfpack!  Apologies for the late Howl, I’m watching the basketball game (congrats y’all)! First, I hope you all enjoyed Martin Luther King Jr. Day and participated in some form of public service.  If not, or if you would like to continue in the spirit of serving others, there are many opportunities to get involved in the Raleigh area and NC State! Some of those opportunities are detailed in this thick Howl.

Also, now’s the perfect time to start (or expand) your student involvement!  It’s a new semester, so whether you’re just joining the Wolfpack as a transfer student, or finishing out your legacy as a “super-senior,” make the most out of your experience! Friendly reminder that y’all are great.

Note on the Weekly Inspiration:

You know that I like including puppies in the Howl as our “Weekly Inspiration.” I’m tired of finding stock photos online, so I figured… why not ask the students? Email me ( with your pup, his/her/ze’s name, and your name (if you want me to include it). From here until the end of my term, I’ll feature your pup in the Howl!

With Wolfpack Spirit,


Shoutout to Sofia Taylor and Sarah McConnell! If you see me on campus, ask for a shoutout!


Lost and Found

Hello! My name is Maya Centeno and recently I lost something that is very near to my heart. It is a NASA hat that has all of the spaceships that were launched on the brim. I lost it in SAS Hall in room 2203. I would really appreciate any and all help.
