I live very close to an amazing college, North Carolina State University. This public research school was chartered in 1887 only with degrees of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. Now the degrees include engineering, agriculture, textiles and design. With an enrollment of 34,000 students, it is the largest university in the Carolinas.
The Memorial Tower was completed in 1937 to honor thirty-four alumni who died in World War I.
NC State athletic teams are nicknamed the ‘Wolfpack’. The name was adopted in 1921 when a disgruntled fan described the behavior of some of the school’s football players as being “as unruly as a pack of wolves”. Prior to the adoption of the current nickname, North Carolina State athletic teams went by such names as the Aggies, the Techs, the Red Terrors, and Farmers. Since the 1960s the Wolfpack has been represented at athletic events by its mascots, Mr. and Mrs. Wuf who were married on February 28, 1981 by the Demon Deacon at Reynolds Coliseum at half time of an NC State game versus Wake Forest. The Demon Deacon presided over the wedding. In print, the “Strutting Wolf” is used and is known by the name “Tuffy.” In September 2010, a purebred Tamaskan dog became the new live mascot, “Tuffy”. – Wikipedia
