Caravano: Yeah, for me I think that we're going to leaps and bounds grow or move up in rankings. 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:06.291
Rankings are important to a lot of folks on this campus and not so much to others. 00:00:06.291 - 00:00:10.830
I think you'll see the ranking of our institution grow because I think we're finally capturing how to tell our story 00:00:10.830 - 00:00:16.669
and how to talk about what's special and unique, like Will said, about NC State. 00:00:16.669 - 00:00:21.474
Our current president, Chancellor Woodson, is doing a lot of that 00:00:21.474 - 00:00:26.882
but I think what we're going to see is more people outside of the institution talking about what NC State's doing, 00:00:26.882 - 00:00:32.484
not just on the athletic field, and that's the most important piece to me, 00:00:32.484 - 00:00:37.035
what's the reputation of NC State outside of Raleigh. 00:00:37.035 - 00:00:40.702
Quick: For me I think a large part of where NC State is going-. 00:00:40.702 - 00:00:47.099
The student today that's at the university 00:00:47.099 - 00:00:50.076
how they can contribute to NC State's image and how we tell our story. 00:00:50.076 - 00:00:55.917
I walked in the library earlier and saw the poster of Kornelius Bascombe, and the stuff he's doing is just like crazy cool. 00:00:55.917 - 00:01:02.810
I've seen some of his videos. 00:01:02.810 - 00:01:05.877
Identifying who those people are, whether it's what Kornelius is doing or something that a researcher's doing, 00:01:05.877 - 00:01:12.122
a grad student researcher's doing over in textiles, 00:01:12.122 - 00:01:16.372
and telling the story of our students and what they're giving to the rest of the world. 00:01:16.372 - 00:01:23.505
