Woodson visit generating excitement in town

I can already feel the excitement among the students, faculty and staff here at NC State. The new chancellor will be visiting for the next three days and spending time with more people on campus and around town.  His schedule is a whirlwind, but make sure to be at the Reynolds Coliseum tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. for a welcome reception and to hear what he has to say.

Thursday and Friday are consumed by Board of Trustee meetings, but Randy and his wife, Susan, will be back in the spotlight on Saturday during the Wake Forest men’s basketball game.  The Woodson’s will be introduced to the crowd during a television time out near the end of the first half  and Mr. and Mrs. Wuf will present them with Wolfpack jerseys.  Go Pack!

Back at Purdue, the university announced Woodson’s replacement.  Timothy Sands was named executive vice president for academic affairs and provost.

Sands, 52, has been at Purdue since 2002 when he was hired for a joint appointment in materials engineering and electrical and computer engineering.

The appointment of Sands must mean Woodson’s arrival is not too far away. Right!  Right.  We’ll know soon.

Passion Rules!
