The Goodnight Scholars Program at NC State University revealed 41 finalists who will participate in the Program’s first-ever virtual interview at the end of April.
The original Transfer Finalist Interview Day was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
From the virtual interview process, 20 students will be invited to join the Transfer Class of 2023.
“While we’re very disappointed that we cannot welcome these outstanding finalists to campus, we’re excited to meet with them virtually,” said Allison Medlin, director of the Goodnight Scholars Program. “The interviews may be transitioning from Hunt Library to Zoom, but our goal remains the same. We want to get to know the finalists, answer their questions, and share why NC State is such a special community, even when we’re social distancing.”
The 41 finalists were selected from a pool of 297 candidates from across North Carolina, representing 24 counties and 21 North Carolina community colleges. Finalists were scored by an application review committee consisting of current and former NC State faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as industry representatives from SAS Institute and the Kenan Fellows Program. Each finalist demonstrated exceptional community college accomplishments including stellar academic achievement, extracurricular involvement, community engagement, and inspiring goals for success in STEM and education.
