Here’s something special for the entire Wolfpack family! Larry Nielsen, professor emeritus at NC State, offers 32 entertaining stories about all aspects of life at the university, everything from the marching band to the Free Expression Tunnel and the joys of having a twelve-foot python in class. Nielsen, who was a college dean and the university’s provost as well as a distinguished undergraduate teaching professor, provides his unique insights–and humorous style–to tell about the people, places and events that have shaped NC State over the decades. His stories revolve around his 17 years walking around the campus, supplemented by interviews with the people he has known throughout his career–coaches, faculty, campus staff and administrators, and students. Widely beloved for his nearly 300-student class on Conservation of Natural Resources, Nielsen continues to give back to the university: He will donate $1 from the sale of every ebook to a scholarship fund in his former college home. Wolfpack Ramblings makes a wonderful gift for anyone who knows and loves NC State.
Wolfpack Ramblings is now available in paperback at Quail Ridge Books, the NC State Bookstore on campus, and through all major on-line booksellers.
