There were several reasons that Nate Myers decided to come to NC State after high school – each one alone being enough to justify his decision. But together, the Andrews, SC, native said that the collective opportunities available to him at State made his choice that much more clear.
"For starters, I want to be an engineer and I already knew that NC State has a world-renowned engineering program," Myers said. "When I came on a college visit, I fell in love with the campus and the people here, from the faculty, staff, to the students and the interactions between them."
"Everyone was very friendly and warm, and the faculty members were genuinely concerned about students' well-being, which was a good sign to me."
A Park Scholar and a Caldwell Fellow, Myers is a member of Phi Sigma Pi honors fraternity and NC State's ballroom dance team, Dancing with Wolves.
"I love the people and the atmosphere this university generates," he said. "There are so many opportunities and so many things to learn and get involved with here on campus."
