This week I volunteered at Wolfpack Outfitters to distribute prepacked textbooks to incoming students. As I arrived for work, I parked in the deck by Reynolds Coliseum located next door to the Talley Student Union. Inside the store, a gondola of NC State imprinted spiral notebooks stood by the pathway for online order pickups. Employees were laughing and smiling. It brought me back to the early 80’s and memories of my first college bookstore visit.
