From the Coach
“It’s hard to put into words everything I’m feeling tonight,” said head coach Kim Landrus. “This was one of our team goals that we set at our retreat back in August. That seems so long ago…everything we did as a team and as a staff was to prepare us to be ready for postseason. These women believed and have given it everything they had to carry out the plan. You could feel the vibes from the minute we were in the locker room singing…they were dialed in and ready. I’m so happy for them…they’ve worked so hard and trusted the process. To be conference champs is representative of their hard work and belief throughout 2018. We’re going to enjoy this moment tonight and then our focus will shift to the next opportunity we have…to host NCAA Regionals in Reynolds!”

Published

on

NC State will be wearing ALL BLACK on Saturday night in their Week 3 game against Ball State at 7pm.

Last year, NC State lost 27-23 in ALL BLACK to Wake Forest on Thursday night, which was their first loss in ALL BLACK, winning the previous three games through the years.

In 2017, the Wolfpack wore their “BLACK Howl” uniforms against #17 Louisville on Thursday night, and took down the Cardinals 39-25.

The Wolfpack also wore ALL BLACK in a 35-0 victory over Eastern Kentucky in 2015.

In 2014, NC State beat Old Dominion 46-34 in ALL BLACK.

The Wolfpack wore BLACK jersey’s in tandem with RED pants and RED helmets against Louisville in 2015, slipping 13-20 in the rain.

In 2011, NC State wore BLACK jerseys and pants, with RED helmets in a 38-24 victory over Central Michigan.

As far as I can tell, NC State is 3-0 when wearing ALL BLACK heading into Thursday nights matchup against the Demon Deacons.

Money Magazine Ranks NC State as the 40th Best College for the Money

Published

on

Recently Money Magazine ranked the best colleges in America for the money heading into the 2019-20 school year, public and private, and NC State is ranked 40th. Behind Duke, they are the ranked as the 2nd best school in North Carolina, and the #1 Public School.

Going to college shouldn’t mean a lifetime of debt. To find the schools that successfully combine quality and affordability, MONEY weighed more than 19,000 data points, including tuition fees, family borrowing, and career earnings. Explore our list, then build your own. (Money)

Here’s what they had to say about North Carolina State University:

North Carolina State University is a school with deep-rooted tradition and local pride. In fact, many current students have parents and grandparents who are NC State alumni. Probably best known for its agricultural science program, as well as its science research majors, NC State offers its 34,000 students some 300 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Take your pick from animal science, extension education, forest management, meteorology, poultry science, textile engineering, and more. With its location in Raleigh, there’s always plenty to do, both on campus and off. Hundreds of student clubs are constantly recruiting on the Brickyard, State’s central quad, and Greek parties run late into the night. But nothing brings the community together as much as cheering for NC State’s Division I sports teams, embroiled in a century-old rivalry with nearby UNC. Students and professors go all out, dressing in red, roasting pigs at tailgating sessions, and pitching tents in parking lots before games. When it’s time to study, the Learning Commons offers a quiet escape. Undergrads say that professors are attentive and almost always available. The university has a solid 79% graduation rate, which is slightly higher than would be expected based on the academic preparation and economic background of NC State Raleigh’s students, according to MONEY’s calculations. In their first three years after graduating, alumni tend to earn an average salary of $55,800, according to PayScale. (Money)
