Nearly 500 Humanities and Social Sciences students will turn their tassels this week as they celebrate amazing accomplishments at NC State.

In total, 435 undergraduate students and 58 graduate students will complete their degrees and earn diplomas. Additionally, more than 200 students will graduate from NC State with a minor from the college.

In a message congratulating the college’s graduates, Humanities and Social Sciences Dean Deanna Dannels recognized students’ incredible resilience and wished them well.

“I look forward to connecting with you as alums and hearing about all the fabulous things you do,” Dannels said. “But for now, go celebrate and know that wherever your path takes you from here, whether near or far, you always have a home in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.”

Congratulations again to all of the college’s graduates, who will apply their unique critical thinking, interpersonal and problem-solving skills to a wide range of industries, fields and disciplines.
