And, graduation. Good night. 🐺🥹🎓

Social media intern, on-air personality, drummer, and now, @ncstatechass alumna AnnE Ford is signing off for now. We're so proud of you and all of #NCState22.
Saturdays in the fall and third quarter hot chocolate are just two of the things Alyssa McInnis (@alyssa.mac10) and Emily Southard (@ejsouthard) will miss now that they’ve graduated. Most of all, they’ll miss the Power Sound of the South (@ncstatemusic) — and each other. Brought together by the saxophone section, Alyssa and Emily took one last trip to Carter-Finley, and the section where they spent many game days standing side by side, to reflect before officially earning their degrees in biochemistry (@ncstatecals) and middle grades mathematics education (@ncstateced), respectively. #NCState22 🎓🐺
