Your Gift Matters

With the support of donors, communication and political science double major Starr Gibens has made the most of her NC State experience. In addition to her studies in media, she’s conducted undergraduate research, served on student boards, earned internships and produced a podcast. “NC State, its resources and diversity, make being a first-generation college student worthwhile,” Gibens says, “and consistently pushes me to my full potential.”
