Upcoming: CHASS Dean for a Day!

On Thursday, February 10, CHASS Dean Jeff Braden and Sophomore Sarah Hager will trade places. Both will experience a day on the NC State campus from an entirely new perspective.

Sarah was chosen for the role after submitting the winning essay in a competition judged by CHASS student ambassadors. As the face of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Sarah will have a rare glimpse into the dean’s administrative duties. She’ll attend meetings with other deans, and meet with faculty, students, and donors throughout her day. Meanwhile, Dean Braden is in for a long day of Communication, Media, and Journalism classes. At 4:00 pm, he’s scheduled to co-host Sarah’s DJ shift at WKNC 88.1 FM, so tune in!

Dean Braden and Dean-for-a-Day Hager envision an eye-opening if exhausting experience. They plan to record their reactions as they go.
