Our top post of 2020 was out of this world. 
From February 6, 2020: Mission complete. @NCState physics alum and @nasa astronaut @astro_christina returned to earth this morning after spending 11 months in space, making 5,248 orbits of the earth, and conducting 42 hours and 15 minutes worth of spacewalks.

Number 2 in our 2020 countdown highlights one of our unique degree programs.

From July 31, 2020: A look in the lab. Did you know that @NCState is the only university in North Carolina that offers a bachelor of science in #microbiology?
Hats off to our 2020 graduates and to our 3rd post of our top post countdown!

From May 7, 2020: Graduating microbiology student Natalie Truby has made her mark on campus and across the state for ride-share users. She stepped out of her comfort zone to help establish public policy that protects ride-share users across the state.
2020 has been a year unlike any other. Our number 4 post of 2020 served as an important reminder to do our part to protect our Pack.

From August 14, 2020: Stroll safely. Remember to wear your mask and help us protect the Pack.
As we wrap up 2020, we’re rounding up our top posts of the year. Ringing in the countdown at number five celebrates the Belltower getting its bells.

From June 25, 2020: It’s official! Nearly 100 years after its construction, our Belltower finally has real bells.
It may not be on campus anymore, but it still holds a special place in our @ncstate memories. This @ncstatealumni Harrelson Hall ornament just became our favorite holiday decoration.
Wishing our Pack a happy Howliday season.
We’re feeling nostalgic. Did you have any classes in this old campus landmark?
Congratulations to Physics alumna and NASA astronaut Christina Koch on being selected to NASA’s Artemis team. She’ll be part of the team paving the way for future lunar missions and could be the first woman to walk on the moon.
