Village residents take a bite out of the Big Apple

Arts Village residents recently joined representatives from the Alexander Global Village for an exciting Fall Break experience in New York City. Sixteen students soaked up the city’s many landmarks and museums, and also attended the Broadway productions of The Lion King and Phantom of the Opera.

Tri-Towers residents scare up fun for young trick-or-treaters

Trick-or-Treating started early last month on NC State’s campus when 15 children from the local Boys & Girls Club participated in a Tri-Towers –sponsored Trick-or-Treat event, held Tuesday, October 25.  Residents from Bowen, Carroll and Metcalf Halls were on hand to give out candy to the children and encourage and celebrate a safe Halloween.  While on campus, the little visitors participated in hands-on craft workshops, which included creating bats and pumpkins from foam, and coloring stickers with various Halloween images of cats, bats, pumpkins and ghosts. The event was a terrific illustration of how our residents devote their time, effort and creativity to make an impact within the community.

First Year College adventurers learn the ropes outdoors

First Year College Village (FYC) welcomed fall with two NC State Outdoor Adventure-hosted rock climbing trips. Twenty-two FYC students embarked on an adventure to Pilot Mountain, NC., where dedicated NC State Outdoor Adventure staff had camped out the night before to secure the best spot for our novice climbers.  After instruction and equipment checks, the Villagers tried their hands at a new skill, gained confidence – step by step! – engaged with a group of kindred spirits, and some even found an exciting hobby to pursue.
