Meet Cameron!

Name: Cameron Younts 

Hometown: Wilmington, NC

Major: Communication - Public Relations

Year: Senior

Hello wonderful and beautiful readers! My name is Cameron and I am a senior here at the greatest university in the world studying Communication with a concentration in Public Relations. I say that I am a senior because this is my fourth year here at NC State, but fortunately it will not be my last seeing that I will be partaking in half a victory lap (hopefully) and graduating in December of 2015. I could not be more ecstatic to be interning for the Undergraduate Admissions office here at State, and I hope that ya’ll enjoy reading my blog about my passion for this university and my abundant adventures around NC State as a senior.

Becoming a student at NC State had been a goal of mine since I was born. Every time I would have to complete assignments as a kid about what I wanted to be when I grew up I would respond by jumping up and saying: “a Wolfpacker!” I can confidently tell you that the best moment of my life so far was when I received the news that I had been accepted to State, and realized that all my dreams were coming true. Most of my family attended NC State and they raised me as a die-hard Wolfpack fan, and I have grown in my insane obsession with this university even more since I began my undergraduate path in 2011.

Since enrollment in August of 2011 I have attended every home football game, and plenty of away games, as well as all the basketball and baseball games I can make it to. I have been very involved at all of the games-waking up before the sun rose to get in line, ensuring a seat in the front row so my friends and I could display our painted chests and roaring excitement for the team that we love most. I have enjoyed every moment at NC State as I had always hoped I would, and now I am fulfilling another one of my dreams by working for the University through this awesome internship with Undergraduate Admissions.

Outside of my passion for State, I am a beach bum from Wilmington, NC and a summer staff member at a Methodist sailing camp known as Camp Don Lee. I love the water and sailing and surfing, and just being outdoors whenever possible camping on the beaches of the outer banks and hanging out on coastal Wilmington islands with my friends. I love my hometown, but I also love the city life of Raleigh. I am a religious concert-goer, and one of Raleigh’s specialties is being the host city of some of the best concerts that North Carolina has to offer. I will be making plenty of posts this year about the outrageously fun times that will be had in Raleigh as well as the limitless opportunities that NC State presents.

I hope everyone enjoys reading my blog as much as I will enjoy writing it, and learns to love NC State just as much as I do. Don’t forget to follow me on twitter (@wpn_Cameron) to stay more up to date with NC State news and the wonders of senior life! GO PACK!

Meet Harsh!

Name: Harsh Desai

Hometown: Statesville, NC

Major: Chemical Engineering

Year: Senior

Hello!

I’m Harsh and this is my fifth and last year here at NC State. I originally came in Undeclared as a freshman in the Poole College of Management, but later found my home in the Chemical Engineering department. I’m not one to be nostalgic, but once you’re in my position, it can’t be helped. As soon as I stepped onto campus this year, I felt a sudden rush of memories going back to when I first moved in as a freshman and the excitement that came along with it. If I had to describe all of my experiences at NC State, it would definitely take a few pages. Looking back at the past four years, I can say I have made the most of my time here at NC State and I can’t wait to see what my last year has in store for me.

Okay no more sappy stuff I promise, but here’s a little background on me. I was born in India and moved to the US in 2001. Since then I’ve been moving around the east coast, until my family moved to Statesville, NC. We have lived there for almost 10 years so I’ve spent a good chunk of my life growing up there. Coming from a small town and being put in a populated environment like NC State is the scariest decision I had ever made in my life but I have loved every moment here and still can’t believe I’m about to graduate in a short amount of time! 

I have a lot of plans for this year and I’m excited to see what I can accomplish before I officially become an alumni of NC State!

"We’re the red and white from State and we know we are the best…" These lyrics from the NC State fight song were words that my parents made sure that I knew early on in life. Because both of my parents attended NC State in the 80’s, this university has been imprinted in my brain for as long as I can remember. This was the only school I wanted to go to and the only college that I even applied to. Needless to say, getting my acceptance letter was one of the most exciting moments of my life!

Looking back on these past few years at NC State, I know that I made the right choice to come here. NC State has lived up to all of my greatest expectations and there has never been a doubt in my mind that this is the school for me! 

One of my favorite things about NC State is that there is something for everyone on campus. There are countless student organizations and opportunities for students to get involved.

Along with my exciting new Undergraduate Admissions Internship, I am currently this Vice President of Membership for Kappa Delta Sorority where I help to recruit new members during the fall rush process.Through this organization I have found my best friends and really found myself as a leader. Going Greek has been one of the best decisions I have made since applying to NC State.

As my last year at NC State begins, I am sad yet excited to make this year my best one yet! Thank you for letting me share this last one with all of you! :)
